On November 7, 2017, the nation was swept by wins in the Democratic party showing a shift in the nation in political views.

On top of that, the country witnessed historic first in the African-American community. Charlotte, NC elected their first Black female mayor, Sheila Oliver over in New Jersey was elected as the first Lt. Governor in New Jersey and the first Black transgender mayor was elected in Minneapolis.

Roland Martin explains what this means for African-Americans and the country going forward with Ron Lester, Ernie Scruggs, Greg Carr, Tom Perez and Michael Brown in a powerful commentary.

  1. A step in the right direction. Originally from NJ. So glad that fat @ss Crispy Creme Christie is finally gone. He should be so proud leaving office with a 15% approval rating.

    The Dems should run on “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness for All” What is so hard about that? Keep it simple. Too much thinking clouds the mind!

    Not sure why all the hate from Martin about Obama, but it’s not pretty. Just sounds like another black man tearing down another black man. Aren’t we tired of that yet? Don’t we get enough of that from others? If you claim you’re pro-black, be pro-black. That doesn’t mean you can’t have an opinion that differs from others, but it shouldn’t, in every conversation destroy and reduce this man’s legacy. No matter what, you can’t change history, Obama was the first black president of the united states. Love him or hate him, that won’t ever change. #TeamObama.

    I’m really surprised at the stance Martin has taken against Obama. He seems to always try to knock or play down Obama’s accomplishments. He spoke this morning about how JJackson was instrumental in policies changes (kudos to him) that allowed Clinton and Obama to win the elections and that Obama wouldn’t have won otherwise. Well if JJackson was so instrumental to the success of Obama winning the presidency, why couldn’t he do it for himself? What made the difference in him and Obama?

    • l lost respect for Jesse Jackson yrs ago. I think for myself. I didn’t always agree with Obama, but it’s no comparison btwn him and the clown that replaced him.

  4. The Democrats winning in NJ and VA means nada unless the DEMS regroup and decide what
    THEY STAND FOR.

    They consistently take the minority voters for GRANTED-yet do very little to REPRESENT
    us.

    Democrats are just about as USELESS as the GOP.
