On the local tip…. The President for the BOA election is weeks away… Been watching from a distance. Lewis Reed has got to go. Do I trust the Board of Elections? No. We will never know whether Lewis won previous elections based on the absentee ballot hustle. Or whether that hustle is still in play. The ‘investigation’ zeroed in on the Hubbards, it did not touch upon other elected leaders or show how far it went back. It simply removed the Hubbards and inserted new black faces, the most high profile being investigated by the Feds less than 2 years later. I don’t trust these local races… All you have to do is look back at all the career politicians and political dynasties going back 20-30 years. I don’t believe any of it was organic. I look at how establishment Dems conspired against Tishaura, would they not do the same to save Lewis Reed? 🤨

What Cory Booker is about to learn is the same thing artists like Soulja Boy and Nelly had to learn during their peak years… and what Deray learned running for mayor of Baltimore. Large social media following does mean success. It does not equal sales or votes. AOC gets much chatter on social media, but she did not win because of social media. She won because people in her district were sick and tired of being sick and tired. Ditto for Wesley Bell. Social media amplified the sentiment offline, it did not create it which is why every prominent Dem who ran on social media following from Hillary to Gillum lost to Republicans who put very little emphasis on being social media personalities. <br><br>Even Bernie, the leader of one of the largest social media ‘revolutions’ the internet has ever seen lost.

Even Bernie, the leader of one of the largest social media 'revolutions' the internet has ever seen lost.

Analysis | Cory Booker was politics’ original social media star. How much will it help in 2020?

His use of Twitter as mayor of Newark made him a national star, but will it translate to votes?

“Cohost Charlamagne Tha God adds, “The ‘Black Twitter’ people that you see going in on Kamala” for her remarks in the interview are “doing the work of Fox News.” <br><br>So many things wrong with this statement… Charlamagne? For real? Charlamagne Tha God has entered my political atomsphere. They may not recognize it yet but all hope for the Dems in 2020 is lost. All hope. You start elevating people like Charlamagne when the discussion is black politics, black candidates or a black agenda nobody’s gonna take you serious. <br><br>As for “The ‘Black Twitter’ people that you see going in on Kamala” doing the bidding of Fox News… no, they’re doing what people like Charlamagne, Angela Rye, Roland Martin, Joy Reid and Symone Sanders should be doing: informing, advocating and chin checking candidates on behalf of black people…. NOT alienating/shaming/insulting the intelligence of black voters she will need to win or seizing the moment to audition for Kamala Harris’ press secretary. <br><br>Kamala is failing because of her RECORD, the fact that she has no organic ties to blackness and no black agenda. Not Russian bots. Not ‘Black Twitter’ channeling Fox News.
