Why every black person should vote
The reason why you should vote is because it is the primary expression of your power in a democracy.
Do you feel like you have no power?
People who feel like they have no power often are the main ones attacking, minimizing, and giving their power up. Votes don't exist in a vacuum. They are influenced by advertisements on tv, radio, and by friends and family. Black people are very influential. We have no problem influencing the entire world when it comes to entertainment, fashion, etc. But if you don't vote why would other people outside of your community vote with you? There are leaders and followers. If you don't like where you're going then lead. If you don't lead then no one can follow you. So understand that you do have power and that power can be expressed in several ways but if you aren't even a voter then you cannot argue that anyone else should vote or how they should vote.
