Quotes

..." Fighting against voter ID laws, Clinton said that "By trying to require not just photo identification but proof of citizenship — proof that thousands of American citizens can't produce through no fault of their own — cynical Republican lawmakers are trying to build new walls between hundreds of thousands of eligible senior, minority, and low-income Americans and their civil right to choose their own leaders. Republicans claim that these requirements are needed to prevent fraud, but the reality is that they do little more than disenfranchise eligible voters."
"If It wasn’t for the black press we wouldn’t know about things like Trayvon Martin, like the Jena 6 in Louisiana,” National Association of Black Journalists President Bob Butler told WGBH-TV in Boston during the trade group’s convention in July. “We wouldn’t know about those things because the mainstream media didn’t care about those stories until they got enough traction, which was started with the black press.”"
Be clear now: I am not talking about giving up food for a period of time. The kind of fasting I am suggesting is a "product fast. Capitalism can tolerate marches that call for voting and prayer, but it has a great deal of angst when a decline in consumption and sales occurs."
