South Side rally urges black residents to register, vote for Obama

Staff report

YOUNGSTOWN

A national organization is teaming up with local groups united in getting out the message to African-Americans: Vote to re-elect President Barack Obama.

Equally important is registering to vote, if you haven’t done so, said Sinclair Skinner, treasurer for 1911 United, a “Super PAC,” [political action committee] that had a rally today on the corner of Glenwood and Parkview avenues in the parking lot of the former Mr. Paul’s Bakery in the city’s Fosterville neighborhood on the South Side.

The event featured dancers, food and voter-registration forms.

Also, the groups will be active Monday at Youngstown State University’s Kilcawley Center from noon to 1:30 p.m. and at the Rockford Village on Dogwood Avenue on the East Side from 3 to 5 p.m.

Today’s event was coordinated with the Youngstown Warren Black Caucus and Simply United Together.

“Many of us don’t get out and vote,” said Sherry Williams, Simply United’s chief operating officer. “A lot of people in our community aren’t educated on registering and voting.”

It's not exactly "Rocket Science!" So there asking blacks to vote for a President only because he's "black", or because of his policies? If they are not educated on registering or voting then there sure not educated on policies, only "free" money without working for another 4 years! Amazing.

NO ONE is educated on anything these days. It's sad. Someone commented on another article on vindy.com and said it best... we've all become "give me give me give me". I'm scared for a lot of things in this country. It's getting to the point that if a PT front end manager of Taco Bell ran for President and said "I will give you all FREE challupas!!" He'd probably win based on that. Meanwhile Iran is polishing their nuclear war head snickering... UUUUUGGH!
