Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) whistle-blower Anita Moncrief urged African-American voters not to allow Revs. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to speak for them. Black voters should instead, she said, make independent decision based on candidates’ qualities other than their skin color.
“One of the things I like to tell black people is that we are not victims,” Moncrief told The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas. “We are not numbers, we are not statistics. We are not pawns.”
Moncrief pointed to Detroit as an example of a city where the policies of Democratic and black politicians have severely hurt voters.
“It is not acceptable, but for some strange reason we do not ask anything of our politicians. We let them come into our community and use us every four years for the election,” she said. “We’re so accepting of the narrative, and we don’t look for ourselves to see what’s really going on.”
“It’s time to stop voting on color.”
Actually, it's never made sense to "vote on color" - no matter what your color nor the candidate's may be.
If we could all vote on ideas, principles, character and common sense - the world would be a superior place.
