Just Two Weeks Before Election

It is the countdown to November 8th, and the pandering is in full drive for the presidential enthusiastic. Hillary Clinton’s campaign has assigned her to North Carolina to attempt to obtain the Black vote, and Donald Trump’s crusade seems to be right behind her.


With only 12 days until Election Day, Trump gave a policy-focused address in Charlotte on Wednesday, October 26th. He referred to it as a new opportunity for black America. That deal is floored on three promises, secure neighborhoods, excellent education and high-paying employment.

This particular crowd of which he spoke, consisted of 700 people and was invite only, in a setting somewhat opposite to the often-violent demonstrations that have been the trademark of his presidential crusade.

Trump offered some fresh recommendations, comprising a plan that would utilize tax holidays to boost cities, a plan that would seek to get international firms to finance striving communities in America, and a new federal disaster designation that would support getting cash to poverty-stricken urban neighborhoods.

Nevertheless, Trump declined to mention the origin of the money that would support those efforts.

He will supposedly further empower cities and states to attempt a federal disaster designation for blighted communities, attempting to support the rebuilding of essential infrastructure, the destruction of deserted properties and the heighten the occupation of law implementation so people have security in their area.

Frequently using Black and urban correspondently, Trump has made his proposal to inner cities a constant speaking point whilst on the campaign path, talking about communities filled with corruption where you get shot just for strolling down the street.

Whilst in Charlotte on Wednesday, Trump talked not too far away from where demonstrations and protests exploded following last month’s police shooting death of defenseless Keith Lamont Scott. The Republican presidential candidate scrutinized what he called uneven justice, ensuring that justice would be administered fairly and equally and without prejudice by making urban neighborhoods safer.

He wants each impoverished African-American child to be able to stroll down the street, and not be afraid. Donald Trump stated that safety was a civil right. Yet, he went on to say that the difficulty was not with the appearance of police but the lack of police and that everyone should work with police, not opposite them.

It’s an impediment that people face every day, and some people profit from working with the police, if you’re white, that is…

There was the unnecessary shooting of an unarmed black man by a police officer to who he posed no threat which made headlines. Charles Kinsey, a behavioral therapist, was working with an autistic patient when he was killed by a Miami police officer. Shot as he held his hands in the air and assured the cop that he was no threat.


The big distinction in the Kinsey shooting and the others that we frequently talk about in places like this is that he survived to tell the tale. What isn’t different is the unavoidable issue, that if an honest person like that can get shot, how can black people ever feel safe at the hands of police?

We are warned, once again, that the explanation is that they can’t. Not without a total change of the law enforcement system as we know it, at least. Yet how many real men, women and children have to be injured to get us to a point where we can even conceive of such a thing?

What kind of sacrifice do they need to have The Moment that changes the minds of a country committed to thoughts of native black culpability?

I do not approve of brutality from any party, no police slayings of people and no slaying of police officers. The goal is to prevent police wrongdoing, not to kill police. They require proper policing in the United States, not criminalisation of whole assemblies of people or movements.

They require genuine cops to help them root out the corrupt ones. Plus they require everybody to assert his or her outrage and annoyance in a nonviolent way. Then, and only then, will the substantive reformation they seek will happen.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
