Why Poor Whites RedState Vote Against Own Interest
Last comment by PoliticsNation 1 year, 2 months ago.

In what is quite possibly the most powerful, insightful, and concise answer to the age-old question of why poor whites residing in red-states always vote against their own best interest, Michael Eric Dyson hits the nail right on the head and gives some powerful advice to these red-state voters.

In this powerful 90-second response to a viewer’s question, Dyson doesn’t attack nor belittle these white voters, but he does provide a very powerful example given by the Rev. Martin Luther King that shows why these voters living in red-states would be much better served by joining in solidarity with other poor Americans of every color in fighting for better wages, a fairer economy, healthcare for the poor, and the stemming of growing socioeconomic inequality.

I would tell you more, but I do not want to spoil it for you. All I can tell you is that he ends the response with a very important point that every poor American living in a red-state should keep in mind when at the voting booth in 2014 and beyond.

@Sherman-your the devil. I see why you lost everything. I will continue to pray for your. I will pray that you don't lose what little you have left.

I have not lost a thing! I'm not giving you MY info.

I don't need your information. I can read you like a book by your post. I don't entertain the devil.

PN, if I was the devil, you would have massive hemorrhoilds at this time...

@Sheran, now that's funny. Two points for Sheran. I know most of you on this site are much older than me...I'm a 80's child. I don't want to go too far and disrespect any of you-at the same time I ask that others show the same respect for me. We don't have to say things out of character or plot demise if we don't agree. We're all entitled to our opinions. Good healthy dialogue is good for the community and soul.
