We talk with Willie Legette, political analyst, as to how we might resolve the conflicts and problems of voting for who we "like", votes that are often divorced from policies that address our political, economic, and community needs. Are we voting electoral race politics and needing class-basis policies? Just how does the "Black vote" calculate?
A whole new way of thinking is required. That and a "resistance campaign" against voter suppression.
