I love this woman! I was blessed enough to interview her for a class when I was in grad school 2 years ago and she was the most humble, funny, genuine, down to earth woman I've met in so long. It was like meeting with a girlfriend for drinks. She'd even remembered that I'd met her a few months prior at my intern site! I also respect how she focused on wanting to take care of all Georgians, not just those in her political party. Georgia definitely missed out.

I like her, too, Malikak. I think she's the real deal and very smart. Wish she would throw her hat in the ring for President 2020. Right now i'm backing Senator Harris, but would definitely show support for her. Maybe she'll throw her hat in the 2024 Presidential election. One can hope.

I too, like Stacey BUT I'd like to see her get more healthy. Drop like 20-30lbs, cardio workout & eating a well balanced meal....No disrespect but health is important.

I'd love to see her take a stab at the presidency, but I think the racists are feeling too empowered right now. I think that we need to be another election or 2 out before white people on the fence would vote for a Black person, particularly a Black woman. Its ashamed that we as Blacks have to operate that way in politics, but it is what it is. I don't think another Black person would have another strong shot until 2024 or even 2028.

@10:08, that fat sack of shit trump with the ill-fitting suits is the fucking president and no one says anything. I hate that the way women look plays so much of a role into how seriously they're taken. Folks spent years talking about Hilary wearing pants suits. She's a grown ass woman, and beautiful at that!

I want to know what Stacey is going to do for black folks first. I'm tired of these politicians taking our votes for granted.

Her ass aint winning no fucking presidency and I dont care how cool and down to earth she seems, we need results. She fucked up talking about protecting illegals and undocumented people rights like this is Georgia, it aint no illegal problem down here. Worry about actual fucking citizens. And another thing as far as Kemp stealinig the election. She knew about the crooked shit he was doing Waaaayyy before she started to run but she waited to raise a damn fuss. You know them good ol boys will do anything to keep their power including cheat. She didnt prepare properly and that's why she lost

every politician can talk to you and have you thinking they you're best friend from hs or college. They trained to project they give a fuck. dont care if they black or white, man or woman, they politicians. So lets leave out the cuddly aunt t shit and lets talk about policies that help the middle and lower classes. REAL POLICIES THAT LEAD TO REAL CHANGE. tired of this showcase shit

Im sick of you "what are they going to do for the the black vote" people! Are you ONLY black? Do you not need health care? Are you in favor or not of legalizing weed or keeping abortions safe and legal or pro choice for that matter? Are you not concerned about the next Supreme court judge? You weirdos withholding your votes like we have some other alternative while racist crackers voting like never before to uphold white supremacy get on my nerves and sound like Russian trolls tbh.

If you not gon vote shut up and leave the rest of us to it!

@10:29 Idgaf about Trump or his health. I wish the he have a heart attack today. I prefer leaders to be healthy & vibrant. I hated that Hilary took off for 2yrs and came back in the arena looking worn & unhealthy. And as a black over weight woman, I know the dangers of diabetes, high blood pressure & heart disease. All I'm saying is she has a long fight ahead of her & not only do she need to prepare mentally & emotionally but physically as well.

"As a black over weight woman" Here it is. Hypocrites are always the harshest critics.

I am so over all these muthafukkas. While Kemp shady Scorpio ass did steal the election. Ain't none of these fools about the real issues. Tired of both democrats and republicans.

11:37 a.m...your apathy...is unwarranted regarding Dems...and is why Trump and the GOP have rode rough shod over Democracy for DECADES! Every policy or law that works FOR YOU...was constructed and passed by a Democrat...and you're tired...because Dems have to fight voter suppression...election fraud...gerrymandering...and NOW collusion with an enemy country to try to keep us OFF the plantation?

I pity you and your ilk.....I'm tired of folks like Yall!!! Warrior Woman...but ready to give up the fight!!!!

Personally, I don't give a damn if Trump is reelected. Quit thinking just because a person is against Trump they are for you. Trump has not affected me. If the Democrats want Trump out of office pay real homage to the group that has supported you the most. Black's of not you will continue to loose races. There are enough of us rohueroit here not that the black vote must be sought and it must have substance for you to get a majority of it. It can no longer be taken for granted.
Shit, build the wall. It's only helping us as blacks by opening up jobs that should have been ours. Bring down the media, hell they have covered is in negative ways for years. Get rid of abortion and welfare. It disproportionately affects us in negative ways more than any other group. Fuck the opiod crisis, because of racism Drs refused to give us drugs. Now they are dying in droves and experiencing the same thing as the crack epidemic. Worry about local elections that really affect us. DA's city council, school board judges. Those things affect your daily life. Fuck saving public schools, they have not benefitted us. We need to get our own.

Believe in it or not, many many people died and/or had their lived destroyed so you can vote. I consider it a slap in the face to true soldiers, not just these keyboard warriors who get on Google to look up reptilian people. If voting didn't mean anything, there wouldn't be so much time and money put into making sure that you don't do it.

Just an observation said...

She's going to call out his bs with an articulate and controlled temperament. I love it!

Trump hasn't affected YOU? There is no excuse for your level of ignorance. His tax cuts for the wealthy, bailout for farmers due to tariffs HE imposed, have made our national debt skyrocket. Guess who's responsible for reducing it? Guess who will be paying MORE for certain items at the store?
