I may have integrated my people into a burning house

25 Year Voting Must Be Done for Blacks to Keep Voting Rights
What is also interesting is that this 'Civil Rights' act is not a full right. It must be voted on every 25 years to remain instituted under the US Law. So what does this mean? It means that if this is not voted on in favor of, or in support of the rights of blacks to vote it will mean that blacks will no longer have the right to vote - and then we're back to square one.

Lawmakers of both parties said federal supervision was still required to protect the ability of minorities and the disadvantaged to cast ballots in some regions.
So what Does This Mean?
This means, simply put, we need a better solution. With police gunning down unarmed black men and leaving the courts closed for anyone to argue the case of the murder victim we need to gather ourselves in a better fashion in order to repair this oppressive system. If we as melinated peoples don't fix this system and just leave it up to the 'system' we will find ourselves in a rotten situation. We need to spare our money and don't spend with anyone other than blacks and keep ourselves in short supply. Because a great percent of this countries capital is built on the backs of black people.
Marching and protesting simply isn't enough. We need to learn the law so we can protect ourselves better, we have to spare our money and spend it only with other black people regardless of the condition and we have to build our own system of health and media so we can better keep ourselves in tip top shape for what ever may be the case.
Peace and love
