With just one day, literally away from one of the most portentous presidential elections since 1964, the similarities eerie, African-Americans must be willing to take a leap of faith and shift from the Democratic Party to the Green Party and vote for presidential candidate Jill Stein and her running mate Ajamu Baraka. We have been in this abusive relationship far too long, that has taken our votes for granted, has not benefitted us and continues to posture itself as our one and only savior from the scary alternative—the right wing Republican Party. Yet, after all of these years, policy-wise, it has failed miserably. In 1964 when President Lyndon Johnson was facing Republican Barry Goldwater, an open racist and repugnant, much like Trump, Malcolm forewarned Blacks, who like many in the Black community today, to not be fooled by the fear mongering.

Or is it too 'dangerous' to leave choice up to the voters, so that we need to be 'protected' from it, like Top Two elections do here in California? Despite receiving billions of dollars of free media, presidential candidates Hillary Clinton (D) and Donald Trump (R) together barely cracked 80% in many four-way polls taken in late summer and early fall — polls that also included Green Party nominee Jill Stein and Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson. Even that 80% was soft, as many supporting either Clinton or Trump are doing so primarily to oppose the other. Continue reading
Oftentimes, when we are outraged, we will exclaim "I wish people would just WAKE UP!" But what do we really mean by that? Wake up and do what? Do we really think just changing our mental state will be sufficient to bring about the world we want? Certainly, changing our worldview is necessary, but how will we translate that into our collective reality? Continue reading
