Keep on believing what a fool believes and you will keep on receiving what a fool receives.Clearly Trump and Clinton are just like the Republicans and Democrats - two versions of the same thing. To most white folks, elections and America are never about anything except white power. This is because the lower-self is the God of America.
In the logic of far too many black people, elections and America are about opportunity, education, jobs, safety and defending America. We keep believing the hype.
This is what happens when Africans get caught up trying to think "intelligently" using the European worldview rather than the African Utamawazo.
It causes our thought process to conclude that someone's possession of a lot more money than us is someone to listen to and vice versa.
When you have a European context you have European concerns.
When you have European concerns you have anti-African concerns because the European is concerned with white power at black expense. So now we move to the "you gotta vote" rhetoric.
No, you should not vote if that's all you're going to do.
Yes you should vote, if you are going to continuously educate yourself to know who to vote for and if before and after you vote you also follow up with constant political pressure and constant actions to strengthen your hand that does not depend on others outside your organized and maturing collective. Our main concern should not be elections or America, but rather how will we strengthen our own concerns from our own perspectives that benefit us?
This sounds crazy to blacks with anti-African identities. White people define themselves by color first then political party or religion.
Black people define themselves by the country they are in. I'll keep saying it: white people only care about America and other white countries in terms of money, greed and power and they use whiteness in the form of racism to achieve it. Elections are a tool of racism no matter who wins, the difference is not voting, the difference is everything else you are or are not doing to give yourself political power beyond the vote and beyond voter registration drives.
