The first installment of the Black Politics 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? How many Black people have become so disenfranchised with the political system, we say to hell with it and stay home? 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 lessen, but also the feeling that the system in place actually can create change for us. Right or wrong does this attitude contribute to the destruction of the Black Community?
