Pandering when it matters politically isn’t specific to the practice of courting black votes, but no demographic so desperately needed in elections has its challenges so thoroughly ignored outside of voting season

On 17 February, Sandra Bland’s mother
joined Hillary Clinton at a campaign stop in Chicago. This was only a day after Bernie Sanders’ campaign released an emotional ad featuring Eric Garner’s daughter, and a month following the public endorsement of Clinton by Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin.
I do not doubt the sincerity behind these endorsements. Each aforementioned family member of a slain black person made valid points in support of their preferred candidate. It is not up for debate whether or not they have every right to voice their political opinion publicly.


But I also do not doubt the insincerity behind both campaigns’ use of these public endorsements to drive black voters to the polls in an election where black votes will be a deciding factor. Pandering and making a demographic feel most important when it matters most politically isn’t specific to the practice of courting black votes, but I’d argue that no demographic so desperately needed in elections has its challenges so thoroughly ignored outside of voting season.

Cornel West Nailed the Problem With Hillary Clinton in One Perfect Comparison



Princeton University professor emeritus and noted academic Cornel West served up perhaps the soundbite of the week on Monday, during an appearance on CNN's New Day.

"Sister Hillary Clinton is the Milli Vanilli of American politics," West quipped, in a reference to the late 80s R&B duo's disastrous lip-syncing scandal.

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
