100 Years ago, on July 28th, 1917, Blacks marched silently through New York City, in one of the first mass protests against anti-black violence in the United States. Close to 10,000 Black men and women and children marched silently down Fifth Avenue.
Tomorrow, January 19th, 2017, will be the last day of President Barack Obama in the White House. As President Barack Obama is about to return to the life of a simple citizen, AfroAmerica Network has been sharing some of the memories with the fans and the readers on the key events that marked his rise, his resilience, and his actions that made his presidency one of the best in the US History. Among the memories are the following AfroAmerica Network discourse, written a few minutes, just after voting for the second time for President Obama, when most people still believed President Obama's chances for reelection were marginal, at best (see Why I Voted For President Obama of November 6, 2012).

"The African-American community has been taken for granted for decades by the Democratic Party... If you keep voting for the same people, you will keep getting exactly the same result."
