Compelling speeches. Too bad it'll be summed up as too little too late for too many. Let's see what happens if Biden wins. Somehow I suspect four years from now Black people will still be asking for the same things we've been asking for over the last umpteen years. It will be no different if Trump wins. All the colorful speeches won't change this fact. At some point Black America has to realize the American political system will not save us. We have to save ourselves.

They did a better job than I expected. Hoping they keep the memento going for the rest of the convention.

Michelle should have ran for president. She would have won and cleaned this mess up. The Obamas brought a level of class and decorum to that White House that wasn’t seen since the Kennedy’s.

I enjoy listening to her and Barack speak on her new podcast. They are very articulate and have a lot of ideas still. Meanwhile Biden talks like he has a speech impediment and can’t pronounce basic words. He can’t say the word “President.” He says “presden.” It drives me crazy

^^^ Fuck that. She already gave years of service. She would be better. Hell, every woman Biden considered for VP would be a better candidate than Biden. That’s one of the things I hate about this election. Bitches.

This isn’t the first time I’ve seen this either. They (people in general) wanted Colin Powell to run VP under GW Bush. Powell would have been a better President and would have gotten more votes. Chris Rock was writing jokes on this. Anyway, Colin didn’t buy it and I don’t blame him.

They’re always wanting Black people to clean up their mess.

I with you and agree with your entire statement. Sadly, the democrats handed 4 more years to Trump. They could have easily snatched it from him but they picked a feeble old man and a disingenuous power-hungry wanna be top cop. I find it so hard to believe that the best they could come up with is Biden & Kamala. The enthusiasm isn't there and they tried to place all those Mexicans up front last night as a signal to black folks that if we sit this one out, they have a back up plan. Someone should have told their dumb asses that most Mexicans vote Republican because they're extremely patriotic and they hate "illegal" immigration more than we do. I'm upset because more than ever before, I realize the democrats are disconnected, out of touch and stuck in the past. This new generation of voter are very smart, has studied the past and know exactly what they want. You can't manipulate them with MSNBC or CNN sound bites. Trump is a POS but he never stabs his base in the back and when he says he's going to do something for them, come hell or high water, he goes out of his way to try and get it for them. Last night was a snooze-fest and I don't see anyone getting motivated to run to the polls.

^^^^Don balee, Biden grew up with a stutter problem.

After hearing MO last night she sounded like a presidential contender. I do understand why she doesn't like politics. The Yt's are dirty and low down as they come.

Great question and the answer is not a damn thing. I cannot name one simple accomplishment from the Obama administration except for the healthcare and they even fucked that up because of the process of enrollment and the fees went way up. Other than that, education is still fucked, crime is super fucked and racism claws are out and in full effect. Obama was just a placeholder the democrats needed to keep their foot in the door. They wanted to make history and had to do it with someone they thought had a rock start persona. I never dranked the Kool Aid, so I don't get it. I don't dislike the Obamas, I just don't get their appeal. Other than appealing to weak people who need anything to believe in, that's all they got.

@12:12...You told that truth! People better stop giving people votes because of their skin color.

Michelle told no lies, the reality is right wing, left wing same damn bird. We black people need a party by the people for the people, run by ethical, moral, honest politicians who have the people's best interest at heart. White people put Trump in office knowing he was unqualified, they did the same thing with Reagan and Bush, Nixon too. This is a party of so called "elites" who take turn every 4 years playing good cop vs bad cop. While I know Kamala is qualified the reality is I"m not not impressed with either party I'm suffering from #whitefatigue.

The Great Mother showed me a vision an all female congress and senate. I will probably not live to see that in my lifetime, but it's coming and that is when I will be impressed, because only the divine feminine can clean up this planet, after the ruination of patriarchy. Until then I am not impressed next lifetime I guess #shrugs

A moral person NEVER chooses between the lesser of two evils. The republicans and democrats are two wings on the same evil bird. I'm voting for Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker Green party.

@ 12:42 You forgot Obama - a social activist in Chicago (still in need) and then ONE term in the Senate.

Because he's so compassionate, empathetic and considerate are the reasons I love Barack. Nonetheless, he was the gay and alphabet communities cheerleader. The LBTGTMZ community are nothing more than bullies, thugs and gangstas. Moreso, this group is indeed the anti-christ. It's like Obama opened the flood gates for them and they can't be stopped. They have all the power and pull. If you speak out and disagree you are rhe trader or hate monger. I can't stand them and Obama had a huge hand in their favor and antics.
