1. Got to say: A poll with only one possible answer seems pretty fishy

4. Actually, there are 2 options.

 

It is my poll; and I'm only interested in knowing who agrees.

By not agreeing - it is obvious - all others abstain.

3. It's Glaude. Eddie "I won't vote for Hillary Clinton" Glaude.

Screw him and any other commentator who aided Trump's entry into the White House.

My Democratic Problem With Voting for Hillary Clinton

http://time.com/4402823/glaude-hillary-clinton/

Glaude is the chair of the Department of African American Studies at Princeton University and the author of Democracy in Black.

By EDDIE S. GLAUDE, JR. July 12, 2016

I am not voting for Hillary Clinton, regardless of her endorsement by Bernie Sanders. My decision isn’t because of the scandal around her emails or because of some concern over her character. My reasons are pretty straightforward. I don’t agree with her ideologically.

Democratic values centered on economic and racial justice shape my own politics. I’m not convinced those values shape hers. Nothing Clinton says or intends to do if elected will fundamentally transform the circumstances of the most vulnerable in this country—even with her concessions to the Sanders campaign. Like the majority of Democratic politicians these days, she is a corporate Democrat intent on maintaining the status quo. And I have had enough of all of them.

What has Clinton offered the American people as a substantive alternative to the status quo? How would her position on free trade, her view of foreign policy, on immigration, her call for “common sense policing” in the face of the murders of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge or Philando Castile in Minneapolis redirect our course as a nation? Transform the condition of black and brown communities?

Given the state of the country and of black and brown communities, these questions must be asked. But for many, especially for Clinton supporters, these questions reek of the unreasonableness of the American left or of people like me: that somehow to ask them reveals that we don’t understand the incremental nature of American politics or that we have crossed over into some forbidden realm of politics.

7. I reject my and my family's part of his characterization.

Glaude may deserve the kind of government selling this kind of false equalizations has brought on, but we emphatically do not. My grandchildren do not!

Nor do the 90% of black women, and their children and grandchildren, whose magnificent stand against right-wing evils was trashed by those of less honorable motives.

I agree with Oasis. He has some nerve including himself with people who have to raise children in what he helped bring on then and is working to continue now. No, "we," Glaude.

12. You have your rights to speak for your family

 

However, I take issue with the fact you presume you have proxy for 90% of all African American women and their children.

Nor do "we" get it that the Professor is selling a false narrative. He dud seek to qualify the remark, by preempt.

It is as if you are claiming the Professor is an Uncle T..

Shheesshh

9. A cursory review seems to indicate he's not a Trump Supporter

Unless you think anybody who didn't embrace Clinton is a Trump Supporter. But his position on Trump is pretty clear.

Perhaps the most persuasive reason to vote for Hillary Clinton is Donald Trump. Trump is worse. I know that. The prospects of a Trump presidency—what would be a deadly combination of arrogance and ignorance—ought to frighten anyone. It frightens me. But my daddy, a gruff man who has lived all of his life on the coast of Mississippi, taught me that fear should never be the primary motivation of my actions. It clouds your thinking, and all too often sends you running to either safe ground when something more daring is required, or smack into the danger itself. (I learned a similar lesson after reading William Faulkner’s “The Bear” in Go Down Moses.)

The real danger goes beyond the demagoguery of Trump and the racist bile of some of his supporters. The danger is that the way we live our lives as Americans, no matter our optimism about the future, is no longer sustainable.

We can’t continue to live with the current level of income inequality. Hard working people are working longer hours for less pay. And politicians and their benefactors continue to argue for trade policies that have decimated the working class in this country. We can’t continue to lock up black and brown people or watch them killed in cold blood by people sworn to protect us or fail to publicly educate all of our children. We can’t continue to bomb people around the world into oblivion.

I can see why that might be unpalatable to Hillary Supporter.

Bryant

10. I find them paradigm - IF you don't do what I want - You SUCK forever

 

To be exactly what the oligarch oppressors wish.

Such as the comment above that makes claims a large percentage of minorities disagree with the Professor.

I believe that we all have the right to be free and to pursue happiness; but never at the expense of harm to others.

No cop has the right to shoot anybody - except that he believes, unequivocally, his life is in danger.

Similarly, no citizen has the right to quash my vote, or other pursuits for happiness, simply because my opine is different than theirs.

As a Caucasian male, who has worked in the dirt, resided in 38 states, and has been CEO over 1000 employees - I say racism SUCKS the Whammy - and that it is still a huge part of current culture.

As the woman remarks in the beginning of the above video - cluthching your purse harder, upon seeing a minority walking the opposite side of the street - is racism.

I admit, I've been guilty of such thoughts.

Waiting for that day when none of us, think that way...

11. This is EXACTLY why the ideological left fail, no one can live up to their purity standards. Eddie

spent every appearance on MJ during 2016, getting digs in against Hillary (which Scarborough was more than happy to indulge of course). No point me saying that I hope he's happy now, because I know he is. He'll carry on with the same old ideological bull, while the Republicans try to throw millions off healthcare, split immigrant kids from their parents and Bernie's famous 1% are getting the richest tax cut in history, rather than that nasty ole Clinton woman stopping it ! You showed them, Eddie ! You showed them ! On your big Princeton Professor's salary, you'll not know the pain caused to the poor.

18. Yeah, for me it's like picking up the ball and running home because he didn't get 100% of

what he wanted. Instead, we were treated to a summer/autumn of monumental selfishness. I'l never have respect for what he did.

14. For those that argue racism is non existent

 

Let 2 Black Men walk into Wal-Mart with AK 47s strapped to their backs; and watch how quick SWAT & the National Guard would be called upon, to quash the insurgents!
.
Black kids with toy guns, get killed - but white kids can walk down the street with their dad's, shotguns in hand.

It is a - White Makes Right - world

Saying it isn't, whatever the pathetic logic, is as obtuse an endorsement of the homicides - as is anyones sealed lips is an endorsement on the mass murder in Yemen and Syria

There's only 2 sides to the racism coin.

You are either for superiority

Or for equality.

Trying to stand the coin on its edge, claiming neutrality, is a position - untenable.
