[quote]Not true. For cultural reasons, Hispanics don't turnout like Black folks do. In 2012, Blacks made up 11.6% of the voting-age population but made up 13% of the votes cast, while Hispanics made up 15% of the voting-age population but made up only 9% of the votes cast. One of the legacies of the...

re: WTF am I supposed to do? Health Insurance... - Antonio Moss
He's talking about the Medicaid expansion which would expand Medicaid benefits to a larger pool of people. States ha the option whether to comply or not. The federal government picks up 93% of the tab for 10 years. However, that can change with a single Congressional vote or executive order. 24 s...

re: Man of Steel: Thoughts on rewatch - Antonio Moss
I've seen it a few times and thought it was pretty good. I much prefer a darker, more serious tone to Superhero movies even if it deviates from the original material. For instance, I thought The Avengers was pretty terrible because it was campy and had plot created to entertain preteens. I don't und...

It goes past American slavery. If you look at slavery, genocide, ethnic cleansing, massive oppression, etc on global historical scale, one common element was the probation of arms placed upon the group being enslaved, oppressed, killed.
