Black Illinoisans, here is a link to the present population in Illinois before the new census calculate and express how many people live in the United States.

I want us to review this link critically, then assess and evaluate what it means.

Ask yourself - because I know you can count!! How does 79.1% (whites) + 14.9% (black) + 15.2%(or person of hispanic or latino descent) equals 100%!!??

IT DO NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!

It equals 109.2%!! And there is a group whose percentage total is 64.7% on the fence one day White and another day claiming NOT Hispanic!!

This is NOT about RACE! It is about Political Power and WE MUST LEARN THE GAME TO ATTAIN POWER AND TO KEEP POWER!!

This is why Quinn can overlook Art Turner or any other qualified Black candidate. Look your present representative in the eye and TELL SHE / HE IS A LIE when coming back and expressing there is noting left of the pie!!

STOP LETTING THEM GET AWAY WITH THEIR RICHES AND COME TO US AND TELL US THERE IS NOTHING IS THERE! That is a fallacy!! Obviously something is there they are going to jail for playing footsies with building contractors.

Use your vote in November and get them out and put people in who are concerned about OUR NEEDS!!

Are you SCARED?! This is why we and our children don't have jobs, hell, we won't even add the numbers up and tell the politicians they are lying to us!!

Just look at the NUMBERS!! Stop waiting to be spoon feed information. This is the 21st century and we must get it for ourselves.

Did James Brown say, "Open the door and I will get it myself?" Well, darn, kick the political door down with OUR VOTES and let's get it ourselves!!

Do not allow ONE Black elected officical to come back and tell you nothing is there. Express go back and get it because come this election and each after you will NOT BE THERE TOO LONG TO HINDER THE GROWTH OF OUR COMMUNITIES!!

Again, this is not about race but power! If you want power enrich yourself with knowledge and wisdom to acquire power.

I would like to meet Shella Simon and would like her schedual. I had great respect for her Father Paul. Gov. Quinn made a great choice. Shella is very well educated, and very honest, just as her Father, Paul was.
