What do you think about Jill Stein? Who do you think we should vote for? Should we even vote?

I think she was the best candidate, with the best political platform, running for the best party in the 2017 presidential race.

I think Black people should have voted for Jill Stein, and all other Green Party candidates on this ticket this election cycle. (Unless their local ballot had a candidate on the ballot from their own local organization, as we often did when I was a member of the National Black United Front of KC.)

Yes, Black people should study, develop, advance, and employment political platforms and policies; and voting should remain critical part of our political arsenal. 

Of course, that’s all for the 2016-2017 election cycle; we must do assessments and restructure our political practices and agendas as often as it is prudent to do so.
