    As much as we want to help Barack, we need to put the Cornell Wests forward- surely capitalism is the elephant in the room; Barack needs to hearken back to the Jerome Wright roots.
    We cannot force Baltimore media, other than Marc, to put the positive forward- we can only make it obvious and helpful. The folks at Red Emmas, Eddie Conway- the revolutionary groups, people like the Transform Now Plowshares who are being held in prison!? They are the ones to push to the fore.
    I find it fine to persuade those in power, but while we’re doing that let’s also take direct monkey wrenching action to disrupt them.
    As Ho Chi Minh said- “talk,talk, fight, fight”.
