Well, contrary to some I think election day should be a national day much like a holiday ...
Thank you for the reply. I do appreciate it. It is more than Nammy has done. He prefers to dodge the question, put his fingers in his ears and mischaracterize what I have said.
Those are all things I mostly agree with. However, none of those are things the people of Ferguson can enact without political power. What I am asking you and Nammy is how do they change their situation
? Because no one else is going to do it for them. And while their situation is not their fault
, it is their responsibility
. If it is not their responsibility, then whose is it?
You both point out how he deck is stacked against them, and I agree. But what I am hearing from both of you is, in not so many words, "they can't do anything about it." You have essentially described them as absolutely helpless. Is that an accurate description? If so, I disagree.
As I will point out for the third or fourth time now, they actually can
vote. There are some barriers. But whatever those barriers, they have overcome them in the recent past. They voted in large numbers just two years ago
for a black president. And they are much less helpless than their kin several generations ago during the fight for civil rights.
Maybe all this will motivate them to, you know, vote.
