Hi Peter,

Trump and his flunkies started early stealing this election. Like late last year. If you read Herbert Dyer Jr. comment about all the ways the Trump Administration along with GOP Governors have undermined our political process to give him the win and keep the GOP in power, you’d see the reason for our dismay. The fix is already in.

This is where the Democrats go wrong each election cycle in my opinion. They fight for people who aren’t going to support them (White Working Class voters), and people who don’t have to worry about having their votes suppressed. Time and time again Black and Brown communities every election cycle must fight at the state levels against GOP voter suppression tactics and Dems just go to the same places where they know they can win leaving defenseless people with no help. We have no reason to have hope. I don’t stop anyone from being optimistic, but I can’t allow myself to get up to be let down again.

I write intelligent, unvarnished thoughts on anti-Blackness, racism, politics, Black people, and White Supremacy. White Fragility🚫| www.ko-fi.com/marleyk
