Sandra Bookman, Sandra Bookman, Sandra Bookman – the host of the weekly program about Black lives in America was interviewing Hawk Newsome, President of Black Lives Matter, NY.  He had some very good points.  Race relations, equal justice – (I have thought for the last 40 years that it is the MAJOR issue in America).  He stated that the Democratic Party has not helped Black people as much as they talk about.  (I interpret this as meaning they take very little action)  He said he did not vote for President this past election (he voted for local candidates instead) – he was sending a message to the Democratic Party that he was not satisfied with them.  (I thought that made a lot of sense)  Ms. Bookman just kept asking why, she couldn’t understand why he didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton.  He kept repeating himself, but to no avail.  She just doesn’t get it.  She just doesn’t get it!

Here was a spokesman for BLM making a great point – NO political party in this country has done enough to bring unity to America.  Perhaps President Elect Trump will propose a new Cabinet post – responsible for bringing Equality and Unity to all people in America.
