voting, political bullshit & lame ass excuses



In Cincinnati, Ohio we just had elections and voting on a view key issues and the voting turnout was shamefully low...

I don't know about every demographic's turnout, but just looking at comments online it looks like the BLACK vote was dead for the most part...

Some people are offering that LAME ASS time tested excuse of "no good candidates to choose from" .. as if that is a politically enlightened or radical statement to make ...

This is my response to that posture:

"Even as a seperatist Malcolm X emphasized the power we have when we use the power of our vote and how the politicians know it and don't want to see us vote with the understanding of that power .. so I'm thinking with the amount of blood and pain it took to get the right for BLACKS to vote in this country AND the amount of effort it actually takes to vote its LAME NOT TO VOTE, inform yourself and make the best decision you can ... that's all .. no excuses .. that is the very least .. it won't fix everything (its really a baby step to the work we need to do for ourselves) ... but DAMN .. when the polls open WE should be there at some point before they close."
