Black Studies & Critical Thinking
It's so disappointing to see black people boasting about voting third party or not voting at all yesterday. Do they not understand that Trump won by small margins in critical states and their wasted third party votes/no shows could've possibly stopped him? You allowed white supremacy to win! Why don't they understand this? It's like talking to a brick wall.
I saw black people reposting all of the conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton not based in facts. Hillary Clinton worked as a civil rights lawyer. She fought for racial equality in schools before becoming a politician. I saw all of us rallying against the wrong person. And for what?
How did we allow ourselves to be so easily fooled? Why are we our own worst enemy?

CJ Peterman, the simple answer to the complexity of your original thought and questions is somewhere in the midst of the definition of, and the distinction between freedom and being free. - Dawn Wolf, Keeper of Stories (Nov. 9, 2016)
"There are reasons not to vote, but no good reason is not enough reason not to vote in this country. We are smug in our luxury, and convenience, mostly unmindful of a world without that 'option'. Unknowingly, this has led many toward an aloofness now fashionable as chic, when in fact it is arrogant a presumption to have as a political stance.
These are my words." - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories
