Black America is not quitting on Ron Paul, and many are making their voices heard. Ron Paul has been the only politician to speak out about black Americans being locked up for non-violent offenses.
Even while lawsuits are being filed and mainstream news is reporting Mitt Romney is the candidate, there are Black Americans who believe that Ron Paul is the only politician that has their best interest at heart.
Even if Ron Paul's name isn't on the ballot there are Black Americans plan to put his name on it. Blacks are more aware of corruption in the system and how lies have been told to lock many of them away only to find out years later they were innocent. Ron Paul, not Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton has been advocating for the release of non-violent prisoners of every race to be freed.
A story surfaced about an interracial couple in 1972 who sought emergency help in a Texas hospital. A pregnant wife clearly suffering but her Black husband could not find anyone who would treat her which he believed was due to the difference in their skin color. When Dr. Paul came through the door and saw the woman, he did what he was trained to do. Not only did he immediately treat her, but never billed the couple who ended up losing their child. When questioned about it Ron Paul couldn't remember, but has been embedded in the memory of a Black husband, and father forever.
Most of Black America is unaware of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) signed into law which became effective January 1, 2012. to ensure that more Blacks than ever will be locked away, without charges, held indefinitely. A law that Ron Paul fought against since day of its conception knowing what many Americans would be losing, especially Black Americans. The alleged 'Black Leaders" for Black people Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton do not speak about a law signed by a Black man that will put more Black men behind bars than ever before.
Why? Actions have spoken louder than words.....
