9. Yes - and not just the candidates

But other voters -example?

Every time someone at DU mentions a new 'new deal' I ask for a 5% tax break for 36 years (time frame of the raw deal for black Americans).

Everyone someone IRL, online, etc. etc. cries about Opioids - I point out that there was no empathy black folks and crack when I came of age - so no empathy for rich white kids.

Then I pivot to medical racism.

And my number one agenda point? The end of the Electoral College.

I can't remember a time in my life where I was only 2/3 of a person- why must I vote like one?
