The first installment of the Black Politics section focuses on our attitude towards the political system and how it effects the Black Community.
The 3 Questions
1. Should Black people feel obligated to vote?
2. Do you believe your vote really counts?
3. Do you feel that Blacks are less patriotic and if so why?
We’ve all heard the saying “your vote counts” but how many of us believe that? Although We came out in record numbers for the last Presidential election, Our enthusiasm has been noticeably absent in the years since that November day in 2008. Not only has participation lessened, but the feeling that the system currently in place can actually create change for Us has also diminished. How many Black people have become so disenfranchised with the political system that they say to hell with it and refuse to participate? Right or wrong does this attitude contribute to the destruction of the Black Community?
