I have often wondered why is that the black Members of the USA House of Representatives or whatever their parliament is called can sit silently and see the issues that affect black people and just keep silent.

  • The man who was choked hold in NY
  • Travon Martin
  • High incidence of black incarceration and the list can go on for ever
Don't these people identify with their black brothers and sisters. Each time I see something that has or is affecting black folks, I have to ask, do these black representatives have a conscience...why are they so disinterested. Not a word, as if their lips are zipped shut. Black folks in the USA really have it tough... Who do these black representatives...represent:thinking::( They can't do everything..BUT at least they can make their voice heard.

They may have had a cause initially and then the reality of the system hit them straight in the face and they are either scared of the reality realized or comfortable off of the temptations presented. Some do what they can within the system to try and make a difference and do some good but...

...this system is a mutha ain't it?

""“There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”"
