Political notes – 1-29-15

After reading about the testimony of Loretta Lynch at her nomination hearings please don’t tell me I should be proud as she will be first Afro American woman to serve as Attorney General. I am tired of supporting someone just because they will be the first Latino, the first Afro American or the first woman . What does the person stand for? What policies do they believe in ? Loretta Lynch supports capital punishment. She believes that marijuana should be illegal. She testified that she believed NSA spying was constitutional . She may be Black but her beliefs are anti Black, Latino, civil liberties and poor folks. There is nothing to be proud of as she will support the status quo and not those who challenge it.
