I don't agree with everything Stephen A. Smith is talking about. I think Stephen means well, but he missed the opportunity to highlight that this is failure of our two party system. He is right though, every election season Black issues go ignored and the black vote elicits no attention from either party. However this is due to the lack of choice. Stephen goes on to suggest that we shop around the black voting block, but in order to shop around you would first need options.
I really don't like his sports reporting or outrageous onscreen delivery, but he made some valid points, but simply voting Republican in the fall election won't mean that Black issues get federal attention. Neither major party has candidates that address the interest of Black America. While democrats are ungrateful of black support, the republican platform remains a far worse option in terms addressing issues important to Black America. Issues like poverty, gun violence, securing voting-rights, police brutality, the reformation of the prison system, and addressing the systemic racism like the kind recently revealed in the Department of Justices' report on Ferguson Judicial System.
He yells constantly and he is very well-known for simply making too much noise with his radical opinions but, Stephen almost had it here. In the video he sounds very disenfranchised by the Left, which has left him very angry (but he always sounds angry) and that anger is clouding his judgement, just switching from Coke to Pepsi won't fix anything, but he feels that we need to do something.The black vote just needs more options in 2016 and in future elections. Blacks have been waiting for action from America for years; Democrats haven't done it and Republicans aren't likely to do it. I guess any party could promise you representation but who would deliver it?http://news.yahoo.com/stephen-a-smith-black-americans-shoul
