If you only get your news from mainstream media then you’re probably viewing this as a win and thinking to yourself, FINALLY, its over… or about to be, but again… not over. Not only is this not over, we’re about to enter into grey areas of politics and the Constitution. And again, this is bigger than Trump or Biden and will alter American politics as we know it forever. There will be no unity, no coming together, the results of every election challenged and regardless of who wins half the country will deem his presidency illegitimate. That will come with huge consequences that will make the last four years look like the good old days. Once we open this Pandora’s box there is no going back.
Lemme issue this disclaimer… and I hate that I have to over and over and over and over again. I’m not a Trump or Biden supporter, didn’t vote for either. Not a Dem or Republican. I advocate for black people. We live under a Constitution and system of laws we didn’t write, had no say so in, that were imposed upon us. A Constitution that deemed us 3/5ths of human being, in fact the 3/5th Compromise was included in the Electoral College compensate Southern states where 40% of the population were slaves who could not vote. That was the law until the voting rights act and every since then both parties have manipulated the black vote to their advantage. The fact that the voting rights act is not permanent and has to be renewed should tell you all you need to know about our political process…. Any black person surprised at what’s happening today doesn’t know history, this is a continuation of the same battle, the faces have changed, in some cases party, but make no mistake this is the same battle.
When you truly understand that, then you understand we have no friends, we only have common interests. When you truly understand, you will realize this is bigger than party. When you truly understand you will stop trolling and start taking notes… about the process, bias and censorship in the media and on social media. Lots of lessons to be learned, because again this doesn’t end with Trump and we’re not gonna make it if we don’t understand all the forces at play.
This doesn’t end with the media declaring Biden President-Elect. It doesn’t end with this court ruling. … And if the Supreme Court rules against Trump in his appeal, this still is not over, Trump still has a path, actually several…. All legal, all within his rights as part of the process that had a lot of y’all cheering in the streets. None of y’all thought we would be here a month later, yet here we are. You can cheer this NYTimes article, but understand, this is not over and its about to get a lot worse.
