How to get the black vote? Go to the barber shop, the beauty shop and the church…is it that easy?

President Obama had support from the black community after he won the Iowa caucus. It was then that black people started believing that this man with the funny name might have a chance. So now as we come to the end of his second term we are asked to choose a candidate. On the Republican side we hear candidates spew profanity, demonize immigrants and peddle messages of gloom and doom. So let’s look at Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Clinton thinks she’s got us and Sanders wants us. The Congressional Black Caucus gave their support to Clinton this morning. They say she has always fought for the rights of minorities, but what is her plan for the future? Harry Belefante gave his support to Bernie Sanders, but who under the age of 60 is taking his advice when deciding who to vote for in November. I keep hearing people say the candidates will be visiting beauty shops, barber shops and churches in pursuit of the black vote. Is it that simple? Candidates are crisscrossing the state speaking at all types of venues. Speaking to voters about their issues. They are not simply going to the church leaders when they go in the majority communities. Their strategy is multi-pronged not simplistic. When President Obama secured the gay vote he made them promises. In his first campaign he believed marriage was between a man and a woman by his second term gay marriage was the law of the land. He owed them and he paid, but Clinton and Sanders want to stop by the barber shop, beauty shop and church and get us to give them our support. No we need to get some questions answered and see just what is the difference between the two of them and what is their plan for us.

Do you think Dr. King could be heard in our society?

MLK Memorial 006
Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. lived this quote. He was fearless in the face of an ever present danger. He railed against the system, but never showed rancor. Yes, he showed anger, but he never disrespected people. He did not demonize his opposition, but he tried to bring those who opposed him to his way of thinking. It is amazing to see what he achieved and in inspired in his short lifetime. He had a dream but he can not simply be relegated to the role of a dreamer. He was a man of faith who knew faith without works is dead faith. He fulfilled his purpose, but we are left here with work to do. We can not wax poetic about his works that would be a disservice to the legacy. We to stop merely observing life’s ills, but seeing how we can change the people in our world. We probably will not stand on the big stage like Dr. King, but if we stand on our personal podiums and do the work we all can help change the world.
