    Ad tells black Americans to vote or wear bulletproof vests. "...Exaggerated reality"

    “Every 28 hours, an African-American is killed by a police officer, security guard or vigilante. No parent in America should have to put their child in a bulletproof vest. On Nov. 4, you have a choice: Vest or Vote,” the ad says.

    “Dream Vests” are on sale on their website for $149.99 in a variety of sizes and colors."

    Talk about stirring the pot? I can't believe any legitimate company would stoop to such an advertising low. Why don't we just fan the racial flames some more in this country? We certainly don't have enough problems to deal with now, so lets see some more looting and burning in the cities. C'mon, lets get a jump on urban renewal.

    Better that anyone, OF ANY COLOR, should watch this video, and rather than worrying about @ss-kicking, instead should pay attention to the kinds of activities that draw police attention: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koAyLPUftHo

    Vote for who?

    Obama has not done a thing other than run his mouth. So far that is all any politician does is lip service.

    Find prosecutors that are willing to put criminals in jail, including those wearing a badge. That would be who to vote for, IMO.

    The worst thing a politician can do is pass a law IMO.
