After two presidential debates and one VP debate, many Americans are still undecided on who to vote for and which candidate will be best for this country. Republicans are quick to say the past 4 years were terrible, but if you have read, listened, and looked closely over the past 4 years you can see a picture that was clearly starting to form.

At the start of 2012, a RAMF created a bumper sticker (above image) that he was selling on his website that is filled with hatred toward the President not because he disagrees with policy, platform, but because of his race. This is Racial Politics at its best. Continue reading

Brown v. Board of Education, Rubie BridgesIn 1954, the U.S. supreme Court overturned the 1896 Plessy v. Fergusson decision in the Brown v. Board of Education which paved the way of the desegregation of public schools. Black children were escorted to school under armed guard in the southern states as violence and threats from outraged white citizens swept through states such as Mississippi to North Carolina. Today black children and white children walk to school side by side, eat lunch, learn and socialize in our schools.
