Dr King Was Right About The Black Vote

One of the most basic weapons in the fight for social justice will be the cumulative political power of the Negro. I can foresee the Negro vote becoming consistently the decisive vote in national elections.'

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

He was right, as he was about many things he commented on back during his far too brief lifetime.

 FYI, you can bet that Dr. King wasn't voting for any Republicans when he cast those ballots in the 1960 and 1964 presidential elections.

The power of the Black vote is why conservatives have spent millions, colluded with each other, plotted, schemed, wrote voter suppression laws, litigated, violated the 1965 Voting Rights Act and unleashed every dirty trick possible to ensure the power of your vote doesn't decide tomorrow's election. 

Guess we should be flattered that the vanillacentric conservafool movement is so 'scurred' of the African-American vote that they would go to all that effort keep a Black man from getting another four years at a job he's done exceedingly well.

You also have to consider that despite their best Massive Resistance 2.0 efforts to frack with him and make him a one term president, President Obama is still standing and has compiled the best first term legislative record of achievement since FDR and LBJ. .

Well, we need to be tough minded enough as Dr King would say to do what we can to ensure they wasted their megamillions in that futile effort to fear and smear this POTUS, and they fail tomorrow.

And yes, the Black electorate is highly pissed about you conservafools trying to suppress our ability to vote and political payback will be a rhymes with itch. We can't let you take this country back to the 19th century and roll back our hard won civil rights without a fight.

And tomorrow, you will see what Dr. King presciently foresaw play itself out again at the ballot box.
