One thought on “Unemployment, Education And Political Power In Ferguson [VIDEO]

  1. Unemployment figures for young African American males is in double digits across the country and probably in Ferguson also.

    The lack of a quality education is a distant dream in the 21st century Amerykah.

    However, political power can be obtained for people of color, if we would simply exercise our RIGHT TO VOTE!!!!
    Ballots trump bullets any day of the week–why do you think the GOP wants to roll back the Voting Rights Act–POLITICAL POWER!!!!!!

    Contrary to what some folks believe-THERE IS NO VOTER FRAUD-THE ONLY FRAUDS ARE THEM!!!!!!
