It's true: but wtf a) are we going to do about it? and b) who are we supposed to vote for? We have a two party system in which the other side is determined to undo the hard-won gains like voting rights we fought for. Given that, what real leverage to blacks even have against the Democrats?

I believe he's absolutely correct. Democrats take the black vote for granted. They assume that they automatically have support from black voters. Also, we are under represented in Congress & the Senate which is a major problem.
