    Black people complain that no one is listening to them. They don't realize the only thing politicians listen to are money and voters. Since blacks don't have any money, they need to get out and vote. Don't protest, don't boycott, don't riot, don't kill cops. VOTE! And not just when a black man is running for president. The rich whites that don't give a shit about you keep control via midterms. So don't show up and vote this November because of the cops, or because Republican governors give you lead poisoning. Show up every election! Then you will have some power in this country.

    How many blacks will show up in 2018? More or less than 50%? If the number is less than 50%, they can forget about mattering. If you don't vote you don't matter.

    We need blacks to turn out like they did for Obama.

    Tell them black lives only matter if they are a big voting block

    If any blacks in flint don't vote after being given lead poisoned water they should be ashamed

    Politicians dont listen to people whos vote they know will be cast in their favor if they actually do vote. If the Dems see a mass exodus of Black people registered as Independents then the inaction of the Dems to address their part in this racist system will suddenly become action.

    it won't change if you don't vote. Pick a black leader and vote for them.

    If one democrat screws you vote for a more progressive liberal in the primaries.

    Obama couldn't do shit for black people because blacks rewarded Republicans who obstructed Obama by not voting in the 2010 midterms. Rather than vote out the obstructionists you rewarded by staying home.

    Blacks never vote midterms. Don't act like you tried a couple midterms in a row and didn't have a lot of success. If I'm wrong whens the last time a lot of blacks voted in a midterm?

    Don't vote don't matter.

    i think you forgot that up until recently most politicians were prejudiced or didnt want to risk alienating whites by doing things for Blacks. Your credibility is like an eraser. The more mistakes you make the smaller it gets. White politicians have very little credibility.

    Try voting every 2 years for the next ten years then tell me voting doesn't matter. Until then you're just making excuses and trapped in victimhood.

    So you don't vote?

    I see what you are saying. But I also think they ignore the black community because they don't vote.

    This election we need black people more than ever.

    And I still believe you guys rewarded the GOP when you didn't show up in 2010. The GOP obstructed Obama and what did people do? They said, "ah why bother" and they didn't show up in 2010. So the GOP got REWARDED for obstructing Obama. You not only punished the Democrats you rewarded the GOP.

    In 2008 over 70% of blacks voted.

    Exit Polls Show Lower Turnout Amongst Black Voters

    In 2010 you had very low voter turn out. Now, why don't you do what you always do and blame white people for why your people didn't show up to vote.
