“What came out of Cleveland “wasn’t particularly Republican—and it sure wasn’t conservative,” Obama continued. Rather, it was “a deeply pessimistic vision of a country where we turn against each other, and turn away from the rest of the world. There were no serious solutions to pressing problems—just the fanning of resentment, and blame, and anger, and hate. And that is not the America I know.”” Cleveland where 12 year old Tamir Rice was gunned down for playing in the park. Ohio, the state where John Crawford was killed by police while shopping at Walmart. Both killed because a white person called the police about a suspicious black person who in retrospect after the bullets settled turned out to be doing the same things white Americans take for granted without fear of being killed. Obama is wrong, what came out of Cleveland, Ohio IS America, it is the Amerikkka people of color know all to well… the Amerikkka we maneuver through everyday hoping to get by, not fall victim to violent crime or get shot/killed by police in the process. Trump is the physical embodiment of this Amerikkka. He puts it all on display… for world to see, exposing both parties, corruption within both parties… bigotry and racism of Republicans as well as the hypocrisy of Democrats who are just as, if not worse. This is why Democrats and Republicans fear Trump… and want you to fear Trump too.

Raymond Nat Turner put it in a rhyme… “Ev-ev-ry f-f-four y-years I-I get n-n-nervous and start r-r-ringin’ my hands Wh-when they ask, “Wh-wh-what if th-th-the B-B-Bogeyman Commands?” W-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-well I-I-I g-g-gets j-j-just a l-l-lil’ bit outta sort Th-th-thinkin’ a-a-about the B-B-Bogeyman and t-the S-S-Supreme Court… An-an-and I-I-I g-g-get a-a-a l-l-lil’ b-b-bit m-m-more than n-n-n-nervous T-t-thinkin’ how l-l-like Indians the B-B-Bogeyman might Re-Reserve Us… I-I-I’m s-s-so sc-sc-scared th-th-that I-I-I’m a-a-about t-t-to un-un-unwind Hm…guess organizing militant mass struggle never even entered my mind!”

I will say this again… “The Bush Dynasty is over. It died when their majority base of voters rejected Jeb Bush. In Missouri we have an opportunity today to put a nail in the coffin of the Clinton Dynasty and send an LOUD MESSAGE to the Democratic Party that the chokehold they have on our community is over. We will no vote the lessor or 2 evils, we will no longer allow politicians to whip and nae their way to our vote. We will no longer entertain officials who do not regularly engage with our community or come to us empty handed, who ask for our vote, but offer nothing in return but talk and empty promises. Most important, by not voting for Hillary Clinton, we show Democrats that we will no longer tolerate candidates who are in bed with the prison or military industrial complex or those who pass policies that are detrimental to our families and communities. We can take a stand for our future or we can continue the tradition of voting for those who profit from our misery. That’s what’s on the ballot today… There’s more to the power of your vote than voting the lessor of 2 evils. There is power in not voting… in not rewarding the party responsible for urban blight, mass incarceration of black people and poverty from coast to coast…. We already know Republicans are not an option. Well, Democrats aren’t either. Its time to take one for the team. Sit this election cycle out. Let white folks battle it out while we build and prepare for the next 4 years… Its been a year and 1/2 since we took to the streets in Ferguson. The unity. It can be done. I’ve seen the beauty in what we can do by coming together, I’ve seen blacks united… and fighting systemic racism and oppression. I didn’t have a dream, I experienced it. It can happen…. and no I’m not talking about following BLM, Deray or any of the people/orgs put in position to distract, confuse or divide. Unfortunately…… we only got to that point because we got sick and tired of being sick and tired and said enough! That shook Democrats to the core, which is why a coalition of Dems did whatever they could to contain our rage, to get us out the streets and back into the voting booth… doing what we do best, voting for them, while getting nothing in return, other than a few new spokesnegos. Look around Black america. Look at our communities. Think of all your kinfolk locked up. Think about families struggling to live because of the policies of Bill Clinton. They give you Bernie as ‘an option’ or the ‘lessor evil’. Bernie’s been in office for decades, he keeps talking about how diff he is, but as the latest photo shows, he was right behind Hillary. And lets not forget, Bernie didn’t stand up for Ferguson. He didn’t come to Ferguson or even St. Louis until he decided to run for office. Don’t fall for it. Don’t rinse. Don’t repeat. Don’t vote. Its a long term strategy: Build. Invest in our own and build political capital. THEN deal with these parties from a position of power, not begging for crumbs. Your choice during this election cycle is to continue rewarding Democrats who give us nothing while gutting our communities OR building our own and dealing with these parties (Dems, Rep, Green, Socialist, etc) from a position of power. Trump? Please. White America has more to fear from Trump. Yes, he will hurt our feelings, but he will hurt their pockets. He will expose the hypocrisy of their institutions. He will show the world the Amerikkka black people know so well. Amerikkka will no longer be able to hide. It will be on display for the world to see. Huge diff between Dubya and Bush. Dubya was their boy, he followed their direction. Trump is uncontrollable, an X-factor. The world will pressure a Trump Presidency, trust he’ll get his, possible get locked up or assassinated. That’s if republicans don’t get him first. We have nothing to fear. We are survivors. We survived Bush. We survived Jim Crow. We survived slavery… and we will survive Trump, Amerikkka, however may not.”
