No Reparations No Vote!!!๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโœŠ๐Ÿฟ

By: Leon Kwasi Kuntuo-Asare

“Just get over it, it happened along time ago” are two phrases most commonly used by both conservative Whites and our so-called White liberals allies when Black people speak about the need of reparations and other tangibles to fix many of the socioeconomic problems caused by systematic White supremacy, which are destroying what’s left of a semi -functional Black America community.

Ironically, those same words are never spoken when the victim of an historic crime is non-Black. Japanese-Americans forced into internment camps during World War 2 received reparations, White Union slave owners who supported the Union and had to get rid of their slaves received reparations, European Jews after World War 2 received reparations, and Native Americans, some of whom (The Five Civilized Tribes)fought for the confederacy against the Union received reparations, yet their former slaves did not and still have not received reparations.

Why do I bring this up? Simply put, the check is due. Too long have Black people simply voted for the candidate that we perceive to be the lesser of two racists, only to find out later with elected officials like the Clintons or even Obama, they were not less racist, neglectful or harmful to the Black community, they were just better at pretending to be our allies.

Every subgroup of Americans vote for politicians who claim to support policies that positively affect their community. Latinos tend to support politicians who support immigration from Latin-America, Jewish people tend to support politicians who support Israel and other Jewish causes, White women tend to support politicians with White-feminists agendas. Black people are the only people who overwhelmingly vote for politicians who never promise to support any policies that specifically helps the Black community, in fact we tend to vote for people who go out their way to hurt us.

American politics is about “quid pro quo”, a favor granted for something, in a capitalistic society nothing is free and neither should be our vote. We as Black people vote overwhelmingly Democratic and are the base of the DNC voting bloc, yet receive little to none of the benefits. Even affirmative action mostly helps White women and other non-Black minorities that include White LGBTQ people and White Hispanics, who often practice just as much racism against Black people as Anglo-heterosexual Americans.

It’s time Black people unite and demand benefits, including reparations specifically for us, and if the Democrats refuse, then we should refuse to give them our vote.

CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS & ATTORNEYS FILE LAWSUIT IN NORTH CAROLINA, FOR DISENFRANCHISING BLACK RESIDENTS

By: Leon Kwasi Kuntuo-Asare

Two law firms and a civil rights committee filed a lawsuit monday. The suit claims black residents have had their voting rights violated, in North Carolina.

According to NewsOne: Attorneys from the Washington-based Lawyersโ€™ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and two private law firms filed the suitโ€ฆThe suit alleges that the black residents who account for about a third of the population in Jones County, N.C., are prevented from electing candidates who represent their needs because the county elects commissioners at large rather than by district. The complaint alleges the at-large system prevents black residents from electing black candidates from their communities, and says the at-large system dilutes black voting power.

A black person reportedly has not served on the Jones County board since 1998 and white commissioners have constantly made decisions that benefit whites and disenfranchises blacks.

Brooks said the group was ready to be arrested if sessions did not withdraw his name from the selection process for the position of the country’s top prosecutor.

A BLACK MAN VISITS DETROIT TO EDUCATE VOTERS ON THE HISTORY OF BERNIE SANDERS AND HILLARY CLINTON!

BY: LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

A black man from Dallas, Texas, who represents the Black Men for Bernie organization, ventured up to Detroit, Michigan to speak with voters, who were predominantly African-American, economically disenfranchised and democrats.

Most of the people he spoke to were planning on voting for Hillary Clinton, even though they knew almost nothing about her politics or that the Clintons past policies went against the interests of the African-American community.

Like her “Super Predator theory ” speech she used to advocate for harsher laws on crime that disproportionately effected black people.

Locking blacks up in for profit prisons for mostly nonviolent drug offenses, that most white people would get a slap on the wrist for or be given court ordered rehab.

Neither did they know about the
Clintons welfare reform policy, their mass incarceration bills or the Trade deal Bill Clinton did with China or his NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) bill, that took away many of the manufacturing jobs in Detroit and brought them to China and Mexico.

Transforming Detroit from one of the most successful predominantly African-American cities, to one of the poorest in the nation.

He educated them on Bernie Sanders’ history of risking his life and going to jail to fight for civil rights alongside many civil rights freedom fighters, including Martin Luther King Jr.

image

And his current fight for social justice, which includes police brutality and systematic racism.

image

image

He informed them on Bernie Sanders battles with Washington’s political elites to get tax funded healthcare and college education for all tax paying Americans, two things most poor and economically disenfranchised blacks can’t afford.
To no one’s surprised, most people changed their vote from Hillary Clinton to Bernie Sanders.
