Do you want to hear one of the saddest stories in the 21st century? There is a woman I know who resides in the Bible belt of this country. She is African American and illuminates the statistic that racists love to see in this country. She is uneducated, a single mother, relatively unhealthy, and at nearly 60, has accumulated little to no wealth. But that’s not the real fallacy. The saddest part of this story is that she has never voted. Never. Not for a local, state or national election. Nada.
While I’m sure she has a million excuses, they are ALL invalid, particularly this year. It completely boggles the mind how anyone, much less an African American woman, can heedlessly exclaim “I don’t vote” and carry on business as usual.
I don’t understand that and I’m glad I don’t understand that because in my heart and mind, there is no room for that kind of apathy and ignorance. We are in a battle and this election marks the turning point. If you are really that unaffected by what continues to happen in this country, then perhaps you should find another country to call home, or better yet, check your pulse because chances are you may not have one.
