Comments

Born in 1965 I'm of the first generation of blacks to get civil rights by law! It's interesting to see what these posting looked like all those years ago. Not pleased with the calculated plan to keep Blacks from actively making decisions in their country of birth. So grateful for my ancestors sacrifice for equality. Now it's 2018 and I am free to vote my conscience in elections of representatives for All citizens! No Vote, No Voice.
