Many black voters in the St. Louis area say they will be taking out their aggression at the ballot box this November over the handling of the Michael Brown shooting — by voting against the Democratic Party that they have long supported.
“Just because they’ve got the D next to their name, that don’t mean nothing,” Darren Seals, 27, of Ferguson, told The Washington Post.
He vowed to vote for a white Republican even though he’s never before participated in a local election. He said he’s angry things haven’t improved for the black community since President Obama took office.
“The world is watching us right now. It’s time to send a message of our power,” he told The Post.
I’d just like to remind Darren Seals that he’s always had to power — but surrendered it to the temporary comforts of one-party rule.
It’s time to take it back.
