Not Supporting a Candidate When You are Black


I think - personally - Does not mean you have Stockholm Syndrome.

Since another thread back here was alerted on and hidden (just look at the group for that one - it's high up on the page) -

I thought I would bring it up.

Black DU'ers - do you feel you have Stockholm Syndrome JUST because you aren't hot? In need of ice water and aloe? In need of an emergency room? Having a fever?

Do you think you are a 'simpleton'?

Why is it when you are smart, faster, more efficient, more resilient and able to withstand societal pressures better -

That some folks seem to think it's the other way around? That we are simple feeble minded fools cowering in a corner with a figurative gun to our heads?

Can we discuss?

Because I read something really really disturbing this morning and it needs to be discussed.

This is a great post

And all of those folks that only show up back here when it's to defend The Bernie show what their intent is by not responding or rec'ing it.

I'll remember that.

Lather, rinse, repeat:
Infants of African American women in 2008 had the largest death rate, which was more than twice the rate among infants of white women.

John Lewis - 2014 Post Comparing Cornel to POTUS doesn't make sense to me

I wrote this Tuesday, August 26, 2014 http://www.democraticunderground.com/11878298.

My comments still stand. This was long before anyone declared they were running for the office of POTUS.

If Corny  is so right - why hasn't he ever run for office. He lived in Princeton. They haven't  elected a Republican Mayor in oh since . . .

He couldn't even run for Mayor of Princeton NJ?


I'd like to quote the wise and sage Stevie Wonder:

We would not care to wake up to the nightmare
That's becoming real life
But when mislead who knows a person's mind
Can turn as cold as ice
Why do you keep on making us hear your song
Tellin' us how you are changing right from wrong
'Cause if you really want to hear our views
"You haven't done nothin'

Understand - blacks aren't a monolith. Understand, some blacks such as myself think talk is cheap.  Unless you have the guts to run yourself - go to hell Corny. You have spoken, wrote, hell - even acted! What legislation did you see over the finsh line?

There are attempts to compare a writer/college professor/actor with POTUS. The better question to pose to me - because West had an 8 year head start in life over Obama - he had every opportunity to get off of his soapbox and get something passed into law somewhere -

Compare Contrast John Lewis' career as an activist and legislator to Cornel West's pretty words.

John Lewis didn't just 'march' or write books and lecture:

And he - 

And he also -

Now he says stuff like this -

And wow - he wants us to get on up and get in trouble!

And because of this -

And yeah - this -

I've got a feeling about who Lewis will be endorsing . . .

Group Host - I'm going to make it easy for you ALBliberal block

But I'm going to brek our rules. I'm not giving a warning. I'm copying and pasting the disruptive posts by someone who states they are going back to "ignoring these threads" - and blocking you.

Don't pm me - I will be blocking you from doing so momentarily.

18. Why in the world was a physical address ever given out?

I have no sympathy. No one should be giving out addresses on this forum. This drama is not at all what I want to read about or be subjected

20. she's giving out way too much information if she was tracked in that way

I can have sympathy for her error there but I think she is fanning the flames...this stalker is getting way too much attention 

I do wish her the best and a safe future

Back to top Alert abuse Link here Permalink Super powers

23. so you think it's wise to give enough information out that posters

On an online forum can track an address? I hope it's a po box and not a physical address. And you think it's also ok to share mail from a non trusted source with the same forum possibly feeding into this unknown and non trusted source's ego....for what purpose? How does any of this help bravenak or make him or her safer? 

I point these things out and you say I am blaming the victim? 

Going back to ignoring these threads

What a great idea! (Maltese for journal)

Adding to journal. We are starting to look for a Maltese puppy from local in home breeders. Great for when he/she reaches adulthood. I see it is for dogs 8 pounds and heavier - but great idea!

She's a hypocrite then

This tells me who she REALLY is and what she REALLY believes . . .

That it's just a piece of paper.

True story - my dad was moved to Fort Knox just a few months after the Loving vs VA case. My mom of course went with him.

It was NOT just a piece of paper to them (a till death do they part marriage) and it isn't for the couples trying to tie the knot that are the same sex in Kentucky.

I hope she fets thrown in jail for breaking the law. And if there aren't laws that get one thrown in jail for denying others their Civil Liberties or Rights - maybe there needs to be.

Maybe that's the next big challenge? Making those who deny criminally responsible for their bigotry?

The NRA is Smearing Martin O'Malley as a 'friend to criminals'

The NRA - as usual - a bunch of snakes slithering around on their bellies showing Americans every single day that they are a bunch of good for nothings.

The NRA's feature attacks O'Malley on two fronts, claiming that he poses a threat to Second Amendment rights and accusing him of taking the side of criminals in Maryland -- even though courts have sided with O'Malley on gun laws and violent crime fell significantly during his tenure as governor.

Angered by O'Malley's strong support for a package of gun safety laws enacted in Maryland in 2013 following the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, the NRA claims O'Malley "imposed the most draconian new gun bans anywhere in the country" before offering attacks from the top two members of NRA leadership.

NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre is quoted in the article claiming O'Malley "has presided over some of the most spectacular, bloody and brutal failures of 'gun control' in our nation's history," while NRA top lobbyist Chris Cox suggests O'Malley becoming president could trigger "a fight for the survival of Second Amendment freedom as we know it."

The NRA also objects to O'Malley's response to the massacre of nine parishioners in a historically African-American Charleston, South Carolina, church in June, sneering that the former Maryland governor acted "decidedly un-presidential" when he wrote an email to supporters declaring he was "pissed" about inaction on gun violence while calling for bans on assault weapons and stronger background checks on gun sales.

I don't know about any of the rest of you who detest the NRA and everything they stand for but . . .

Am I the only person saying to myself . . .

I can't find that one fuck I'm supposed to give about what those pieces of shit at the NRA think is Presidential or not.

Martin O'Malley's Is No Opportunist on Gun Control

June 2015 -

 2011 Maryland State of the State Address Feb 3, 2011


At the beginning, he tips his hat to President Obama -
As President Obama said just last week, “We know what it takes to compete for the jobs and industries of our time. We need to out-innovate, out-educate, and out-build the rest of the world.”

He then went on to speak about Tough Choices - one being gun control reform in Maryland:

With tough choices, we are also taking back our streets and neighborhoods from violent crime. Since 2007, we have reduced murders in our state by 23%.64 But the spate of homicides early this year, I think reminds all of us wherever we live of the urgency of work yet done. Better isn’t good enough. Thirty-one children, thirty-one kids were the victims of homicides in 2010. 

Now the State Police tell us that this is the lowest number of juvenile victims of homicide on record.  But how do we explain that to the families, to the moms and dads of kids that were lost. How do you tell them that those thirty-one lives lost – we consider that to be progress or a state accomplishment?

Two years ago, you required judges, rightly, to remove guns from the houses of domestic abusers.  This year, I need your help to further toughen the enforcement of our gun laws.

And while nobody believes that we should criminalize poverty, there are things that we can do – must do – to bring Maryland in line with what every other state does and what every other state expects when it comes to preventing the willful neglect of a child.

In his conclusion he tips his hat to President Clinton -
As President Clinton once rightly said, “There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right with America.” 

Two years later - February 2013:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Gov. Martin O'Malley has signed a gun-control measure to give Maryland some of the nation's tightest gun laws and the National Rifle Association says it plans to challenge the law in court.

Part of the law requires people to submit fingerprints to the state police to get a license to buy a handgun.

O'Malley says states with similar laws have substantially lower gun death rates than states that do not

The measure banned 45 types of assault weapons and gun magazines will be limited to 10 bullets.

September 2013 - the NRA gets butt hurt:

Maryland Gun Control Law Gets Second Challenge

HAGERSTOWN, Md. — The state of Maryland fired back Monday at gun advocates seeking to block a new law creating some of the nation's toughest firearm restrictions, arguing a lawsuit filed last week came too late and lacks merit.

Attorney General Doug Gansler said the plaintiffs – three private citizens and seven gun dealers and associations – waited more than four months after Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley signed the legislation to file the lawsuit.

The law, enacted in response to Newtown, Conn., elementary school shooting, adds 45 types of guns to a list of banned assault weapons and limits magazines to 10 bullets. It also requires handgun buyers to be fingerprinted before purchase. The law is set to take effect Tuesday.

Just wanted to clear up the headlines that O'Malley is JUST DOING THIS NOW.

He's not. He's as pissed as the rest of us who want these bullshit shootings to stop - and he has been.

A National Database of gun owners, finger prints, limitations on the types of guns one can own - these are tough and expensive choices -

But it has to happen. Understand - among you at DU (for those who want no limitations on gun ownership in case The Gub'mint does whatever ) are Democratic Party Members for whom this issue is non negotiable.

Notes -
We are a home with guns. Yes - multiple guns. Like two handguns and numerous hunting rifles. We also have bullets for these. We would pass finger print, mental health, background checks - we have no fear.

My cousin was murdered by having a bullet put in his head by a kid trying to get into a gang (black on black violence - random shooting) on April 13, 1991.
