Can black folks 'turbo-charge' their vote?
It seems that the black voter turnout is down in early voting. The NYT is trying to blame the Republicans and attribute it to voter ID laws and reduced early voting hours, but who says that is the only time they would vote, or that it actually makes any difference at all? What a con job.
I think many of our black brothers and sisters are finally realizing that they've been had by the Democrats for decades, but they still don't feel comfortable going against the tradition of voting Democrat, so they just stay home.
The Dems are assuming (as they always do) that they will receive a large number of votes from their loyal black community. Staying home and not voting will reduce the number they actually receive and jeopardize their chance of winning.. but the black voter has the opportunity to have a much greater effect-- by casting a vote for REAL change and REAL hope, it will have DOUBLE the effect of just staying home.
For the black voter, it will result in: Clinton -1, Trump +1.. almost like getting to vote twice!
I hope our friends will push past their hesitancy to go against tradition and will CAST THEIR VOTE for the people who have been trying to help them for decades.
Or they can just stay home and hope somebody will eventually help them somehow.
I know what I would do if somebody put chains on me..
