(Bernie Sanders Has My Vote)

Today I voted for Bernie Sanders because for me he stand for real change. Sanders was a Civil Rights organizer at the University of Chicago in the 1960s. Sanders worked for Jesse Jackson’s presidential campaign. As part of his 2016 presidential platform, Sanders calls for an end to “the four central types of violence waged against black and brown Americans: physical, political, legal and economic.” Speaking on these issues, Sanders said “It is an obscenity that we stigmatize so many young Americans with a criminal record for smoking marijuana, but not one major Wall Street executive has been prosecuted for causing the near collapse of our entire economy. This must change. We must address the lingering unjust stereotypes that lead to the labeling of black youths as “thugs.” We know the truth that, like every community in this country, the vast majority of people of color are trying to work hard, play by the rules and raise their children. It’s time to stop demonizing minority communities.”

Sanders has called for reforms to sentencing guidelines, drug policy, and use of force policies within police departments. Noting that there are more people incarcerated in the U.S. than any country in the world at an annual cost to taxpayers of $70 billion, Sanders argues that the money would be better spent on education and jobs. He has spoken out against police brutality and the uneven rates of arrest of African-Americans and other minorities, saying: “From Ferguson to Baltimore and across this nation, too many African-Americans and other minorities find themselves subjected to a system that treats citizens who have not committed crimes as if they were criminals and that is unacceptable.”

Following the release of footage depicting the arrest of African American Sandra Bland for a minor traffic violation, Sanders strongly condemned the “totally outrageous police behavior” shown in the video, stating that: “This video highlights once again why we need real police reform. People should not die for a minor traffic infraction. This type of police abuse has become an all too common occurrence for people of color and it must stop.” Speaking on Face the Nation Sanders said that the way Sandra Bland was yanked out of that car and the way she was treated by that police officer is not something I think would have happened to the average middle class white woman.”

Sanders has also spoken out against the privatization of prisons throughout the United States, stating: It is morally repugnant and a national tragedy that we have privatized prisons all over America. In my view, corporations should not be allowed to make a profit by building more jails and keeping more Americans behind bars. We have got to end the private-for-profit prison racket in America!

Sanders introduced the “Justice Is Not for Sale” Act, which prohibits the United States government at federal, state and local levels from contracting with private firms to provide and/or operate detention facilities within two years. He noted that “We cannot fix our criminal justice system if corporations are allowed to profit from mass incarceration.”

Sanders introduced legislation to break up “too big to fail” financial institutions. With three of the four banks that were bailed out during the 2007–08 Global Financial Crisis now larger than they were then, Sanders believes that “no single financial institution should have holdings so extensive that its failure would send the world economy into crisis. If an institution is too big to fail, it is too big to exist.”

He is a Democratic Socialist and I am a Christian Socialist. I watch this Powerful video ‘Now is the Time’ Bernie Sanders is endorsed by Martin Luther King Jr.’s close friend and Civil Rights Activist, Harry Belafonte, Nina Turner, Cornel West, Killer Mike, Danny Glover, and millions more. Bernie Sanders for President.

My ultimate goal through my revised book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition on Amazon.com is that my book can be used as a tool for community based advocacy and to create dialogue for social justice.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement for now is a virtual organization I started back in 1991. It’s my hope that my story would attract qualified people to join my management team so that I can start it in Chicago as mentioned in the book. GRCAM mission is to help end urban violence, poverty, structural inequality, institutionalized racism, and police brutality within the communities and cities we will serve if given a chance. GRCAM will offer basic services and programs to the low income African American community particularly to strengthen single black mothers, single black fathers, and two parent working families. To raise awareness about the genocide within our inner cities in America and Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos so that:

* Our clients/members children can grow up in a safe loving environment

* Our clients/members children have access to information and resources to succeed in life

GRCAM is about building a strong unified global community and providing basic resources to families that want to utilize our programs and services. My organization is open to all ordinary law abiding citizens, all racial groups, and undiscovered artist. All I ask is the you accept all of the principles in my book. This is my contribution back to my community, society, and throughout the African Diaspora.
