Four Reasons Bernie Sanders supporter need to overcome their “Hillary” issues

The #BernieOrBust movement is is full swing even though Sander’s chances of winning the nomination are slim to none at this point. The Sanders supporters drone on about what they believe is Hillary’s dishonesty, her ties to Wall Street, things she said as First Lady and anything else they can pull out their butts as reasons that they can not now or ever vote for her.

Well I have four very good reasons why Sanders supporters should get over their disdain for Hillary Clinton, go in the voting booth, hold their noses, and vote for her. Read those reasons here: http://www.africanamericanreports.com/2016/04/four-reasons-bernie-sanders-supporter.html

Baseball season has started, so that means that it’s time for the “Why don’t more black kids play baseball conversation”. One element of this conversation always bugged me because it plays right into stereotypes about black fathers.

Conservatives think more blacks should support for Carson because his life story???

7 Nov

Many conservatives seem confounded by the fact that Ben Carson is not being received warmly by the African American voters. Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and like minded ilk seem to think that Carson’s great personal narrative should have blacks flocking to him to hear his message. By focusing on his narrative they are overlooking a lot of other issues that black voters have with Carson. check out my fictional conversation between a black voter and a conservative Carson supporter which may better help to get my message across. read it here: http://www.africanamericanreports.com/2015/11/conservatives-think-more-blacks-should.html

Ben Carson releases rap ad to appeal to black voters

Ben Carson and his campaign are trying outreach to black voters by running a rap ad on black radio stations. Now I was immediately put off by it because I think Carson and his people think the only way to reach black voters in a way they can understand is to put the message to music. I find that condescending and would like to know who was in the room when the decision to create this ad campaign was made, because this ad is in my humble opinion is worse than the dumb sh*t that comes out of Carson’s mouth. Listen to the ad here: http://www.africanamericanreports.com/2015/11/ben-carson-releases-rap-ad-to-appeal-to.html
