"…How do we hold elected officials accountable other than the ballot box, when we can clearly see that the ballot box is not producing the results that we would hope it would? What do we do if we know that that's the case? Are we just doomed to be resigned to being in this loop of getting our hope sub and having them dashed because Democrats aren't willing to do what they need to do in order to truly protect black Americans? I would love other people's thoughts on this.…"

"…Of ideas for civil rights and the like, I'm guessing. I don't know. Have they prevented assassinations or anything like that? I don't understand why the NAACP even matters with issuing anything as a statement. They seem to always be reactive to everything that's going on in terms of black struggles and movements. And I don't think it's all entirely African American entity now. Right. It's diverse now. Right. I would categorize myself as far more left leaning than the typical Democrat.…"

"…So I'm going to preface this response to your post by saying that I've been on clubhouse and social audio long enough to know when I'm engaging with someone who, genuinely speaking, usually is looking for debate as opposed to dialogue. And I tell people off the bat that I don't do debate because debate is centered in winning, and winning is another tool of white supremacist colon mindset. And so for me, debate becomes a white supremacist tool. So I don't engage in that.…"

"…And if that questions me for or against black liberation, that's not the intention, but I just kind of have questions is all, rather than this thing happened, so it means this. And it's been very problematic with blacks in the Democratic Party in terms of a bunch of quote unquote socialists actually have capitalistic agendas that can hurt black communities to where they are perceived to help.…"

"…It's. Okay, so I found this article, and this is probably old information to you, but for me, I guess I understand why they would issue a travel advisory. Not banned, but advisory. And I don't know, I'm still wondering exactly to what effect this will have on anything, but I guess it's something that they can do as an organization to recognize that things in Florida as they perceive to be are extremely bad for minorities.…"

"…Again, and in all seriousness, in terms of the advisory from the NAACP dollars, they're doing, in my view, what's in their locus of control to do. Nobody has elected the NAACP or any advocacy group to govern anything. So in terms of changing laws and policy and things along those lines, they don't have the authority to do any of that.…"

"…Yes, the governor elect, obviously, Ron DeSantis has been making politics that have all but pretty much went against black culture and woke culture. There was actually a post on here the other day where we had talked about a person had asked, is there such a thing as two oak? And I thought it was an interesting question to ask in this climate we are in where radicalization is how we get representation. Unfortunately, it shouldn't be that way.…"

"…And so for me, that's the sad part is that when you think about not just what it does to us as adults, but what it sets our children as a collective whole up for and the challenges that they have to face, frankly, because our generations who've come before are not willing to do the necessary work it takes to stop passing on different versions of the same mess, fundamentally the same mess, to generation after generation after generation to solve, because we have decided to do, frankly, the bare minimum.…"

"…They asked James Carville, well, what are you going to do for the black voters to make sure you got their vote? What are you going to do for the progressive voters to make sure that you get their vote? And he said, we're not going to do anything. And the commentator, the questioner is kind of taken back. And he said, we don't have to do anything because where else are they going to go? They got no place else to go.…"

"…Let's just say with some sort of cause, some sort of ruling, they'd say we're going to leave this up to the states to decide it's because the federal government regulates the laws for everyone by the 10th Amendment. The 10th Amendment to the US. Constitution provides the powers and not delegated to the United States by the Constitution nor prohibited to it by the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.…"

"…As someone who has family and relatives in the state of Wisconsin, milwaukee. Milwaukee is more dangerous than Chicago. I do believe Missouri and Alabama are in that top five. So I don't really understand what this public idiocy is. And I have to debate on these things. I know the post of this, who articulated her argument extremely well and extremely to the point and poetically almost.…"

"…You. So I had to jump in on this because, like, I I absolutely agree with everything you said you said. And thank you for the way you articulated this conversation because it is difficult. We are absolutely in an abusive relationship with this party. The Democratic Party has been an issue for a very, very long time. And I'm sure you know, because clearly the way you articulated this, this goes back very, very far. It goes back further than Linda Bain Johnson.…"

"…All the way back to, let's say, 1951, when black students in Virginia protested their unequal status and the state segregated educational system. The high school that these kids attended, they had these kids in overcrowded conditions. The facility that they study in, it was falling apart. So I'm sorry, the facility where they were getting their education in, it was pullings apart. It was just horrible. The NWCP tried to convince these students to stop protesting.…"
