Well there is a reason why ppl dont vote.
Poor ppl typically don't vote.

Also I need to look again but aren't our voting numbers getting better?

I expect a dip though in the next election

To those of you whose ancestry in America goes back many generations, Did your parents talk to you about politics while growing up?

In this context I believe it's less about population which is established and will remain that way for a considerable length of time , and more about voting fluidity.

My parents like politics and always stressed the importance of voting but I grew up being taught by a lot of teachers and advisors connected to the civil rights movement .

We're having this conversation because both parties see the Latino vote along with its substantial numbers but its a vote that can be had .

That's not nearly the case with the black vote

Damn right. I'm starting my self-imposed exile to the Caribbean when I'm 30. I'm almost ready to give up. To hell with these Brothas. No point in trying to free slaves that don't wanna leave the plantation.

As you can see right here in this thread, most Negroes aint trying to accept this message. Even if this message was sent to every Negro in this damn country, the response would be the same.

Unless there is some type of cataclysmic event that forces Blacks to come together, then everything is in vain.

But.....if my words can enlighten and free the mind of ONE brother or sister, then I have done my job. Ying Yang

And us demanding it has nothing to do with how many latinos there are.

Case in point...the unfair crack/cocoaine laws. Because of our lack of interest in voting for local political seats (council, school board, state congress/senate, alderman, district attorney, controller, etc. etc.) we ended up with a set of sentencing laws that made huge swaths of our community felons who can never vote again. Why? Because the people who win the local seats become the people on the national stage (as senators, judges, governors, and presidential candidates).

We can't gain political leverage when most of our community can't vote or doesn't want to even though they have the ability. I recognize the influence of institutional racism and historical consequences of slavery but truth be told, we have done a lot of this to ourselves through the simple act of not voting when and where it matters. Voting on the local level is what makes change happen...it's the reason why Koreans do so well when they immigrate over here...its the reason why southeast asians are gaining traction where I live...and it's the reason why a lot of latino communities have prospered.

SMH gon with all that nonsense.

Just VOTING aint gon do sh*t. Because all Brothas gon do is vote Democrat anyway, and these politicians KNOW IT. The biggest reason the Black community aint got no influence is because we're in the pocket of the Democratic party, and have been so for damn near 50 years.
