8. Good point - agreed voter suppression is one of the main tools of the right.

However, I do not think anyone should take the black vote for granted - although there really isn't a lt of choice, is there? Why did I "all lives matter" you? Maybe simply because as a white person I don't clearly understand the black agenda. I am privileged and have been since birth. I do have eyes though and recognise wrong when I see it. I like Kamala Harris in some ways because she is of mixed race and also because I would like to see a woman as our next President. I also agree with some of Bernie's message and also Elizabeth Warrens. I view myself as progressive and do not really like Republican Lite. I voted on Hillary and I think that she represented more of the moderate Dem. I do not want under any circumstance to have to deal with another 4 years of Trump or just another version of the same.
