Well, another four years of hope and trust is upon us. We have the opportunity to bring CHANGE back from its captors of 2010. Americans know what happened; though they may be gravely embarrassed to admit to it. None of the despair and turmoil would have surfaced had a new apparition of Jim Jones rose and brainwashed the vulnerable into thinking they would be better off believing that they would or could be as rich as the ones standing at the podium laughing at them and their naiveté. However embarrassed they were, color made no difference to the ones affected most by the lesser-promoted recession: the Blacks and Latinos. Had Blacks and Latinos gotten out and vowed consistency, there could have been lesser division for them. Instead, they puffed and pounded their chests, and made their voices heard as if attracting their 15 minutes of fame. And that’s exactly what the Republican Party was hoping for. The Black mad man and woman and the Latino mad man and woman played right into their hand. Even worse pity goes for the ones who didn’t vote; those with the nerve who said that their vote wouldn’t count anyway. As if they had a Black Tie affair to attend, they sat on their hands and watched matters and issues for them worsen. Now, because CHANGE is once again at hand, that same party that they supported for a new brand of change has made it difficult for many to cast their vote to re-elect their Savior-in-Chief, while mocking those silly many who thought that they would be recognized for giving their Judas part of their Heaven to control. Yes, Black and Latino people…you need to make this right. No one should have to beg you to do the right thing. But at the risk of like the better human being, “Please Grab a Hand and Go Vote Together!” It’s not too late to get a “Non-Drivers Drivers License” or a “Sheriff’s I.D.” Obtain a true picture I.D. that cannot deny you the right to cast your vote for your life and your family’s life. If there is a cost involved, is there not a delicacy you can give up to take back your life? Another four years of hope and trust is upon us. You have a chance to make history again and be taken seriously. No matter how much money you have, you will receive no more respect than you already have. If you need any proof, just take a look at Florida. During the last two years, there has been a war against Black men and boys far greater than Black-on-Black crime has ever seen. Yet, Black people with a little money think that they are immune to homeboy treatment. Even by not helping a cause, you help the wrong cause. You listen to the wrong people who you have enjoyed being entertained by for years. Most likely, they have their funding to hold on to by getting you to go their way. Another case of Black-on-Black crime. And, now that they themselves are being mocked, they are trying to come back to their own side. Be entertained and just entertained by them. Vote the right way. Vote for what’s right. Even if you don’t want to divulge who you will vote for, don’t. Does everybody tell the truth anyway? They all tell you what is appropriate for you to hear. They don’t have to tell you anything else. But you need to tell yourself that you are valuable and that you demand to not be classified as a second-class citizen. One way to do that is to VOTE! Do not try and submit an Absentee Ballot because it WILL go into the TRASH. Get out of your home, stand in line, and VOTE! Furthermore, unlike the movie theater when you ask for a certain ticket, they will slide you a ticket for a completely different movie – make sure you check and confirm your votes before you walk away. Take your time and do not feel rushed just because people are waiting behind you. PLEASE GRAB A HAND AND GO VOTE TOGETHER! If you know of someone who needs a ride or a companion to the polling booth, help them. What a great opportunity to pay it forward by lending a helping hand. Lend a hand and take a stand! With all the mis-truths and lies that have been spread out on the platform, how can anyone deny who the better candidate is to represent them? Besides, isn’t the better candidate already in place even though he didn’t have the necessary support to truly make a difference or change? What is there to fear other than a new Civil Rights Movement? This time, you might not have a chance at another fight.
