Politics In America and Being Black



This post probably disturb some of my MS bloggers, but I have always been opinionated and when it is election time in my city and America, I am just as opinionated. This is going to be a long blog entry and it is going to be an entry that I keep up for awhile.

Politics is a F****ing Dirty Game and with the season upon us again. I am reliving the HELL I went through supporting the city I live in Mayor, remembering the racially charged election that happened in the city Memphis Mayor race in 2007, and now witnessing the under handed tactics of the Clinton camp.

I personally cannot get absorbed in the wonderful world of politics, my mind is made up as to what I am going to do, which is not support the Mayor of my city this year and not vote for Hillary Clinton if she wins the Democrat nomination.

Once I am finished writing how I am feeling about politics in America I will update this post and remove myself from America Politics for a few weeks. Hell, I just got over from an exacerbation and I will be damned if I work myself up to another one behind politics. Which is nothing more than a different day, but the same sh*t.

UPDATE

They are keeping it real in the Fields about what is happening in this race for POTUS. I will not post my personal local fight when it comes to politics. What I like about the Fields is that people of all races express their honest opinions and there is honest dialogue. MSM need to realize that there is a lot of power from political blogs hosted by African Americans. What you see happening on a national level in politics is just as bad on a local level.

I am ready for a freaking change when it comes to politics and race. I hope that this will be the year African Americans and other minorities make an impact on how Democrats and Republicans treat the minority vote.

This is shaping up to be the year when both parties will hear minorities and the poor loud and clear.

"This is shaping up to be the year when both parties will hear minorities and the poor loud and clear."

I certainly wish that there were to become true. It is my experience after MS diagnosis which has helped to solidified my political opinions. That's kinda why I even started a blog...it was to express my little opinion regarding health/economic policy.

I may not be a part of a minority group by skin color, but I certainly feel under-represented in the dribble of MSM.

Ok, I'm rambling now. But I thank you for speaking your mind. The more under-represented individuals speak out, perhaps we will find ourselves represented by each other.

Lisa,

I understand exactly where you are coming from. Minorities and the poor are not the only ones facing problems in America. I am just so use to say those two because they have always been under-represented.

The Health and Economy issues touch us all. If MSM can get pass making it appear as if it is only minorities and the poor in their coverage...maybe people can get together and make a difference.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your opinion.
