Can somebody explain to me, an ignorant person, why Black people should support democrats in 2016 without mentioning "Republicans/Donald Trump" or anything that happened before 1970? I'm tryna be enlightened and I'm just not seeing it
This is the most important election where social change is concerned, likely since Kennedy/Johnson and more than Obama. There's 2 sides tho... On one side politically the democrats want to shake the hold of the Republicans so Hillary being elected is their all out war against them. On the other hand for mere mortals where social change is concerned - minorities, women's right, gender equality (not just between men and women but LGBT), and community violence needs reform and forward progression for improvement more than ever.
It's one of those situations where the candidates may not be the most appealing but one of them has your best interests at heart between now and the next 4 and possibly 8 years. You're kinda forced to vote and hope they do the right thing. But how is that different from any other election ? Your vote is yours and you're not obligated to vote but this is one election you're going to want to watch.
