AFRICANGLOBE - If you don’t believe African American voters have been sold some political snake oil, it will be crystal clear during the term of President elect Donald Trump! So called Negroes have told you election after election that our future, our progress and our hope was based on our blind support of a political party that, in many ways, seldom supported us. Not only were our issues not supported, our causes not supported and our businesses were not supported, we were neglected, we were exploited and we were used!
AFRICANGLOBE - Obama’s legacy is in tatters, and that is good news. The most obvious example of Obama’s lack of substance was his relationship with Black Americans. His disdain and contempt for the people who loved him the most was clear to anyone who paid attention. Jokes about “cousin Pookie” and parents serving fried chicken for breakfast should have been seen as the racist screeds they clearly were. But the desire to see a Black face in a prominent place endures to our detriment.
AFRICANGLOBE - The Democratic Party is dead! Somebody call 911. Stop putting your time, your energy, your love, your money and everything else into a dead marriage, a dead relationship or a dead political party! That’s like pouring water on a dead plant. When you can’t fix a political party or a political operation that poisons your political life, leave the Democratic Party lovers alone.

AFRICANGLOBE - It’s 2016, an election year and also the year of the ballot or the beat down! If African Americans don’t stand up now and demand equal rights and justice for everybody living in the United States our parents, our children and our neighbors will continue to be beat down, or killed, physically, mentally and financially!
AFRICANGLOBE - The Obama era represents a peak in Black voters’ identification with the Democratic Party, which will have to fight to retain their loyalty. While President Obama made history by becoming the first Black president in 2008, Black voters made history four years later.
AFRICANGLOBE - "Just because they've got the D next to their name, that don't mean nothing," Darren Seals, a 27-year-old assembly-line worker and hip-hop musician told The Washington Post. "The world is watching us right now. It's time to send a message of our power."
AFRICANGLOBE - Black voters of today don’t care anything about your political party affiliation. They don’t care anything about your skin color and they damn sure don’t care about or believe your false promises about making things better for America’s poor, oppressed and exploited Black citizens!
AFRICANGLOBE - The state Republican Party will open an African American Engagement Office as part of a nationwide effort to reach out to Black voters. Then, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. — expected by many to run for president in 2016 — will outline a plan to the Detroit Economic Club to get the bankrupt city back on its feet by slashing taxes.
This week’s Supreme Court decision in Shelby County v. Holder overturned Section 4(b) of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which mandated federal oversight of changes in voting procedure in jurisdictions that have a history of using a “test or device” to impede enfranchisement. Here is one example of such a test, used in Louisiana in 1964.
AFRICANGLOBE - When Black voters gave President Barack Obama 93 percent support on Election Day in defiance of predictions that they might sit it out this year, Black Democratic surrogates breathed a collective sigh of relief.That encouraged those leaders to try to leverage more attention from both Obama and Congress.
AFRICANGLOBE - A large majority of Black Americans who head to the polls in November will vote for President Obama, but the question is whether they will turn out in the numbers he needs given the election lacks the symbolism of the 2008 contest.
