Black Power: Use it or loose it. We the African people along with our allies from Asia, Arabia and Latin have taken power in this country by electing Obozobama as president. But because we are politically aware, conscious and Politically educated, we have allowed Obozo and his gang of Dummyrats to usurp that power. Instead of using the power, the Black Power, to benefit Africans and other exploited and oppressed peoples who are our natural political allies, Obozo used it to please and kiss up to the white European exploiters and oppressors. Thus he is a white man's b!ytch. It is only due of our lack of awareness of our power that we have allowed them to get away with it thus far.

Now, the world is in crisis condition. How did we get to this crisis point? First of all, to please the whites, Obozo decided to bomb Africa. His stupid thinking was this would please those who felt aggrieved in the Pam-Am disaster a couple f decades ago, something that any normal person would have forgotten by now. But Obozo resurrected it for what he saw as political gain and advantage. But an even stronger motive was not to just please the whites bot to do as much damage to Black Power as he could. In the case of bombing Libya, it was socialist economic power. This is why he targeted the Great Manmade River.( http://humanrightsinvestigations.org/2011/07/... ) now understand this. That bastard was attempting to destroy the greatest development project since the construction of the pyramids. And, there were no major voices of protest from Africans. This emboldened Obozo.

Next he attempted the same tricks in Egypt and Syria. But it did not work in Egypt and is not working in Syria. But by the time they realized it was not working, they were already neck deep stirring up similar troubles in Ukraine. Now there is a huge crisis in the heart of Europe and there is a threat of nuclear confrontation between the east and the west. This is all due to Africans not exercising our responsibility to make Obozo accountable for his misdeeds in Africa.

Now that the rest of the electorate can see how irresponsible we as Africans have exercised our Black Power, they are putting in place a movement to disfranchise us again and take away our Black Power. This is what is meant by voter ID requirement. Black Power: use it or lose it.

But anyone who thinks the movement to re-disfranchise Africans will stop with voter ID, they are foolishly mistaken. Learn from history. History tells us that they are likely to return to such ingenious tricks as poll taxes and literacy tests. It would take another 100 years to fix the mess one we are taken out of power again.

The solution is for each of us to take responsibility and be embarrassed at the Nazism that Obozo is flirting with in Ukraine and demand a stop to it. We ought to be embarrassed with what Obozo is doing in Iraq and Syria vis a vis arming terrorist thugs like al-Qaida and ISIS and demand a stop to it. If we do not do these things, other voters will become more and more alarmed and accusing all of us, not just the idiots in the White House and the Obozo Administration, particularly the State Department and the CIA. The racists trolls in hear taking along this line are very offensive. So we tend to want to ignore them. But they are in fact our friends to warns us before things get too far out of hand. They tell us to ‘go back to Africa” and call us the n-word as a warning that the real racist whites who are not here are actually planning things that are far worse and much more serious.

Look at Ukraine wqith thugs roaming the streets with baseball bats beating people the same way that hitler came to power. Nation of Islam and New Black Panther Party idiots area already threatening voters and anyone else whom they cannot control. People have threatened to =beat me while I was sitting in a wheelchair in an attempt to control my political thinking. This is nothing but fascism. And it is likely to get worse each day that goes by when we do not speak up against fascism in general and Obozo in in particular. I have been saying for decades that there is a thin line between liberalism and fascism.( http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/... ) Thus, we have “gay rights” but soon we will not have any political rights at all.

I really hate to wake you dreamers up, but brain-dead liberals and mindless independents are responsible for a marxist community organizer contaminating the White House.
The same can be said for a minority member holding a governorship. Minorities can't elect a president nor a governor on their own, basically because ... wait for it ... they're in the minority.
It's a sad state of affairs when the simple concept of "minority" needs to be explained, but that's how far we've fallen as a nation.
Minorities may win low-level elections such as city council members and mayors in predominately black hell-holes, but only until those office holders are arrested on charges of fraud and corruption. When the minority becomes the overwhelming majority, we end up with cities like Detroit.
Voter ID laws are meant to keep Obama's unregistered democrats [read: illegal immigrants] from voting in our elections. For the author to suggest otherwise tells me he is a potential domestic enemy who may someday find himself on the TSA's No-Fly List.
To say, "Whites can no longer out-vote us," is one of the silliest dayum things I've ever seen posted on a public forum.

We need to stop calling people minorities just because they look different..if we are really trying to be a post-racial society. The idea behind minority is that they are not the norm, being White is the norm and others are marginal. That is BS! and needs to end.

Has anyone noticed that Assdurratin's postions here are identical with those promoted by far right wing racists. Those Voter ID laws are actually more like the poll taxes and other measures which politically disfranchised our ancestors after Reconstruction. It is no coincidence that most people blocked from voting by the new voting restrictions are Black and (increasingly) Hispanic citizens. Also notice Assdurratin's RHETORIC: "Obama the MARXIST." Only a philosophically and politically illiterate simpleton could think that Obama is a Marxist after reading Obama's writings and speeches. But then again, only a political or philosophical illiterate could read Nkrumah and not see that he was a Marxist, though Assdurratin (who claims he's an Nkrumahist) vehemently denies Nkrumah's Marxism.
What a phony he is: an ass kissing Uncle tom reactionary pretending to be a follower of a left revolutionary African statesman. And now he's defending measures by his right wing white masters to disfranchise us again, a ,mere 50 years the Civil Rights Act, and 49 years after the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

That Blacks should have problems obtaining photo IDs in this day and age is shameful and speaks volumes as to the type of irresponsible, societal nonparticipants they are. As a Black person I don't sympathize and don't even know anyone without an ID. Also most of the Hispanics in that predicament are illegals.

Educated fool, can't you see that those are not my words? I was quoting some racist idiot in another thread. That is not my language. But I posted it here so that people can see that when I say, Black Power: Use it or Lose it" I am well justified because that particular white racist was talking abut doing the things I had just warned people about in the post just before that. Clearly in the context. That entire is a quote. And I gave the link so that you can go there are see that I quoted him verbatim.

What I was saying and did say is this: white racists are talking all kinds of crap about how to bring the black vote under control and thereby re-disfranchise us. Why are they so angry? his is my theory and I could be wrong. But I certainly do not think I am wrong.

I believe in dialectical analysis.( bet you have heard of it but have no idea what it means) I give not give all the particulars about dialectics. I just want to point out the axiom of the unity of opposites: for every action, there is an equal reaction. For every up there is a down. For every positive there is a negative. Etc. Etc. Etc.

Based on the theory of dialectics, it is clear to see that for every right, there is an equal responsibility. I was born in the days when the black vote was bought by white people and absolutely controlled by whites. I remember white Dummyrats coming to the community and passing our wine and whiskey and telling the voters that nobody had better vote outside the Dummyrat machine. This is why virtually all smart and progressive Africans such as Booker T. Washington and Marcus Garvey and daddy King voted Republican n those days. But not W.E.B. Duois. Dubois was an elitist "talented tenth" liberal Dummyrat idiot. Speaking of which, he never did a dam thing for the black community while people T. built Tuskegee University and Garvey started the Pan-Africanist Revolution symbolized by the Black Star Line and the African Communities Leagues, similar to what the Convention People's Party in North America is doing as we speak.

I helped to e4lct Obama in 2008. They used the system that I developed in my Pan-Africanist work to get him elected. The entire strategy of the Obama Campaign came out of the Black Power Movement. The lection of Obama was proof positive that Black Power works.

In 2008, Black Power consisted of an alliance with Asians, Latinos, Muslims and other minorities. The minorities working together like that is the majority. That is Balck Power Applied in the USA.

But when Obozobama got elected, he usurped Black Power and replaced it with "gay rights" etc. Hence Obozobama is a white man's b!tch, like Dubois.

By doing that, Obama bombed Africa, invaded Syria and Libya and starved 260,000 Somalis to death. Now, he is using the exact same tricks in Europe. And that is what Ukraine is all about. Ukraine is fascism coming home to roast.

Ukraine scares the devil out of smart white people. It is broke and bankrupt. So they have to do IMF. But IMF is not going to loan them enough money to fix their economy. This is why their only hope is to sell their industries. The problem is the industries are controlled by Freedom Fighters and not by the Nazi government. This is why serous fighting broke out a couple of weeks ago. Russia cut off their gas supplies. So they had no choice but to go to EU on their hands and knees and beg for gas. But they do not have any money. One reason they have no money is because low life scumbags like the new billionaire My Candybooty has stolen it all, al of it. Instead of giving some the money back, he goesw to EU and beg for more money so he can steal that too. EU said to him,“Look idiot, we are not going to give you no more money unless you give us something concrete in return.” Candybooty said,“I will give you all those industries. EU said, but you do not control them much less own them. Candubooty said,“But if you just give me a little bit of gas to put in my military equipment I will send the army in and take control of those industries and them hand them over to you in exchange for a few billion, maybe a trillion dollars.” EU said,“That is stupid and it is not sound business practice. But becazuse we are pretty much stuck with Putin acting cocky, we will take a risk this time ONLY. But before we give you ant gas, you have to send th3e army to get those industries NOW not tomorrow.” Thus Candybooty started bomdarding civilian targets. This makes him look tough enough ti impress the big EU banks so they will loan him some more money.

But Obama is neck deep in that whole stupid mess because he spent $5 billion of American taxpayers money to overthrow the elected government in Ukraine the way he did in Libya and attempted to do in Egypt and Syria. Now white Americans are mad as hell because that is $5 billion wasted because there is no effing way that Ukraine can ever repay it now that they cannot take control over those industries.

So, we had voting rights. Obama usurped the Black Power that those voting rights gave us. The nhe screwed up all over the world, especially in Libya, in Syria, in Egypt and now in Ukraine and he has lost EVERY ONE of those wars so far. Plus, the US government has no more money to pay for any more wars. Thus, Obozo is caught between a rocket (white racists including his KKK endorsers) and a hard place his stupid foreign policy especially his anti-African campaigns at a time when we need Africa on our side instead of them relying on the Chinese and Russians. White people are dumb as helllll. But when it comes to messing with their money, they can count dollar bills. Right now, the USA is broke and n=bankrupt just like Ukraine is all because Obozo is a damfool. White people know this. That is why they are talking about voter ID.

What I am saying is voting rights come with voting responsibility. I cannot dumb it down any lower than that. It is sooooo dam simple. If we do not want white people to get to do voter ID, and poll taxes and literacy tests and all that, we have no choice but to hold Obozo accountable. If we do not hold him accountable for bombing Africa and wasting money in Ukraine, the whites will disfranchise us AGAIN like they did when they thought Dubois was going to become the black leader. They will do it to make sure that we do not elect another Obama. Simple. Black Power: Use it or lose it. Criticize Obama. him a few angry letters in order to deflect white peoples anger towards all of us. And we know they are mad as hellll because they have been kind enough to come to our forum and inform us that they hate our guts and are mad as hellll because we elected Obama and refuse to make him act intelligent.

Look. Once they get voter ID on the book, all they will have do to disfranchise us is when we show up at the polling station WITH STATE IDs they can just say, they do not think it is a legitimate state ID. They can say it looks like a fake sate ID to them. How ignorant can fools like you get?

40-50 years ago before Voting Rights Act, they would give everybody literacy tests. The white people giving the tests could not read themselves. But every time a black person showed up to take the test, the white administrators would say he flunked. By the time you go to court or whatever and prove that you can read and hire a lawyer and all that, the election would be over. You have to wait until next time. Next time, you go down to take the literacy test, they would flunk you again. Cannot you see that? That is how it works.

No I seriously doubt that they would question your state ID. C'mon man. More than half the democrats are White and they want your votes. I don't believe anyone is trying to disnfranchise anybody. They are just trying to limit fraud the best they can. If anyting it's about republican conservatives vs liberals Not about trying to disenfranchise Blacks. If you really look at it, it doesn't make much different what party the president belongs to. Look at Blacks under Bush and look at the situation now under Obama. How much has he helped???

You are incredibly naïve and stupid. If they do it that particular way is besides the point. The point is they have a law on the books that would allow them to hide behind it as the disfranchise people. Right now, the law says that everybody can vote. It errs on the side of allowing people to vote. But once they erect an obstacle, any kind of obstacle it says that not everybody has a right to vote. They could say, for example that you ID is "defaced". They are a million and one different ways to make an excuse to refuse people their rights. The point is, and as stupid as you talk I am sure you are not aware of this now we have voting rights. But we do not take responsibility we will definite lose those rights. At one time we did not have voting writes. If you were a woman, you could not vote. At the time, I am sure that many women did vote if they knew how they =would vote. They had what they called property qualification. If you could not prove that you owned real estate you could not vote. Understand. Even if you did own real estate and did not have papers or witnesses to PROVE you owned real estate, you could not vote. if you were a slave or ex-slave, you could not vote. Of course ex-slaves that the right on paper. But how could a black person prove he was not a slave? He had to carry papers in his pocket at all times. In other words, he had to have State ID saying he was not a slave. If somebody enslaved you and burned your papers, you are out of luck until somebody else came and vouched for you

Dam!!!!

The only reason we have the right to vote now is because somebody took responsibility and made them change the law to give us the right. All I am saying is that if we not take responsibility to keep that right, they will take it away from you again. Nobody will give you power. And that is what voting is. It is power to elect your government, elect Obama. But if you do not make Obama act like he has some sense, people will take your power to elect another fool like Obama they will take away your vote. Guaranteed. Mark my word. They are doing it already. I just showed you where that racist came in here and said exactly what I told you he would say. And that is, they tell us every day that they are going to take away our rights because they know anybody stupid enough to elect Obama is also stupid enough to allow them to take away their vote

You and your views are irrelevant! Your time has passed.. now step aside grandpa! Lol!
Fool, one last time, it does not matter if you have an ID or not. With that kind of law on the books, they can always say you do not have an ID whether you have one or not. If you have one, they can always say that it is not good enough. This is a blemish on it.

For example, I was headed to the bank to cash my paycheck once; and got caught in the rain. I got wet and all my documents got wet. When I got to the bank they said they could not cash my check because it had been "defaced". I went to the next bank and there was no problem. What I am saying is having an ID is subjective. It is not objective. One person can say you have one and the next person can say you do not have proper ID. But the real problem is power politics. If they do not want black people to vote, the can and will always find an excuse to say your ID is faulty. And there is absolutely NOTHING you can do about it once that law is on the books. If you go to court the election will be over before you can do any of that.

But it is not about IDs at all. If they pass voter ID, they can and will pass other laws such as literacy tests. There are many ways they can block us from voting if they have the will to do so. If I was white, I would dang certain move to block another Obama from being elected. I am black and yes, I am thinking about helping the whites to block fools like you ,Savant and that crazy cult worshipper Sankofa from voting. It is fools like y'all who elected Obozo in the first place.

But you are too stupid to see that? You are a stupid assss troll and you are wasting my time
