This is democracy in America; there were 3 votes against lynching and several dozen in favor of it. Lynch Mobs are as democratic as you can get.
1. If you really love democracy, then join the Global African Community, make their interest and agenda your own. In that way you become a global majority instead of a national minority. Then you can rightfully assert your international rights and contribute to the betterment of your people on a global scale. You need an African World View and an African Social Theory to pull this off and to crate a functional plan of action.
2. Unify the African vote, use it as a political tool to coerce either party into accepting a pre-written agenda into their overall platform. Be willing to sanction and abandon any Party that refuses to accept the National African Agenda, or back-out on their agreement to carry it out.
