Permetteranno il matrimonio gay?
Uploaded by THE STREET REPORTER

Why have we not revisited this issue of GAY marriages? It seem like the topic of discussion is Healthcare, Iraq, National Security that people would like to know about. But in fact there are several issues that have been visited at the beginning of these debates but have obviously been blanketed from the glitz and glamour of the political games.

Early on there were so many views discussed but have we lost the focus of what the American people really want. What happen to the GAY RIGHT ACTIVIST? Atlanta men and would that represent this community should be more appalled then I am because I don’t wish to partake in that activity but this needs to be ONE NATION, ONE AMERICA.

If you ever felt you were discriminated against for your race, religious faith, TAKE A STAND AND BE COUNTED IN THIS NEXT ELECTION. IT WILL BE A CHANGE.

Let’s really look at this situation; because it is a very serious one, John Edwards have dropped out of the presidential race.

At this time John Edwards has not endorsed a particular candidate. The real issue or shall I say situation is where does Edwards votes go to, Will they vote for Hillary or Obama?

Why is this suddenly a surprise that Edwards is dropping, did he have the money to stay in? What primary did Edwards win? Was he even a strong enough candidate??
I will say that Edwards does have a lot of views that will change the face of this nation, but he is no PRESIDENT.

If you have not followed along the presidential race

Be cautious as to who you vote for make sure you vote for the issues. RACE and GENDER should not matter. Some African American voters are weary about Senator OBAMA speaking simple rhetoric and not knowing anything about how to run the country. Others fill that Hillary has no real concrete issues that will transcend this nation past the state we’re in now.

Now, Where does the Edwards voters turn to.. We shall see but political analyst have predicted that 75% of the voters will roll with Obama on this one. Edwards is more likely to support Obama because of their youth and their message of CHANGE and his adamant issues that he disagrees with Hillary on!

John Edwards will be meeting in New Orleans to discuss his on going support with poverty. Phone calls were made to OBAMA and CLINTON on poverty issues that he wants them to continue to focus on.

If you thought the last Democratic debate was interesting… you probably need to watch the one Thursday airing live on CNN 8PM!

We all know that Missy has not dropped an album in forever, now she is resulting in some randomness. I guess this is what you do when you have no street cred anymore.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Walt Disney Studios is creating a stereoscopic 3-D video for Missy that combines the tunes “Ching-a-Ling” and “Shake Your Pom Pom” from the upcoming soundtrack to the movie Step Up 2: The Streets. The video will premiere on MTV’s TRL on Monday.

DOES THE BLACK VOTE EVEN MATTER?

As interesting as this presidential race has become, I am thoroughly applaud at what I have read thus far about the recent support of African American Leaders in prominent positions. We can all make assumption about the non-influential nature that, writers, authors, actors, rappers, singer or even black political figures have on the black vote – and you would be all fooling yourselves. The article touches on how Maya Angelou , a good friend of Oprah, has endorsed Hillary Clinton. In my head I immediately thought it had to be a great reason for Angelou to go against her long time friend Oprah !

When you have Oprah Winfry[One of the most well respected African American Women in today’s society] begins to endorse an candidate; Maya Angelou [ An acclaimed author, activist , and overall well-renowned and respected black women ] starts to support Hillary Clinton, this adds a separation in the black vote.

OBAMA VS CLINTON DEBATE

Recently, when reading the article in the AJC [ Atlanta Journal Continuation ] about the Toni Morrison/ Barack Obama Vs. Maya Angelou/ Hillary Clinton and it was shocking to read some of the comments of black voters.

MAYA ANGELOU RADIO AD SUPPORTING CLINTON- Listen Here

One thing I would like to do is speak to all black voters! Whether or not you are a supporter of Obama or Clinton; please listen to the issues! Personally I am tired of hearing the reason [excuse] that Clinton is more “EXPERIENCED” then Obama.

If you look back into our history, most of our presidents had some type of history. We have more then 10 years of BUSH and CLINTON in the White House. It is time for change. And I know you ask yourself, at what cost would this so-called “CHANGE” be for my well being.
