THE UNDENIABLE POLITICAL-LEADERSHIP OF SHIRLEY CHISHOLM

Follow the Chisholm Trail: The current (Democratic) Candidates lack the stage presence, articulate, and powerful electrifying performance of true Leaders such as Shirley Chisholm.

The original change candidate has already made history but the American press and political news media/shows seems to be in denial or non-recognition of the history of this – our American country.

In the 70’s Shirley Chisholm founded the new America… which the media is trying to deny or destroy…The similarities of Vietnam and Iraq and the Nixon era politics and Bush era politics and the politics of Black America cannot be denied… and therefore the founder of the Change Campaign of Shirley Chisholm (and democratic nominee George McGovern) cannot be neglected.

A Country that cannot build upon its past cannot construct a future.

In the memory and honor of Shirley Chisholm’s Groundbreaking and Landmark Campaign for Change, and as the 1972 Chisholm trail – Presidential Campaign – trail-blazed the path through-out this country for others such as Jesse Jackson and Barack Obama. I hope to set the record straight by establishing that the foundation, founder and catalyst for change is and was the 1st black/woman  presidential candidate Shirley Chisholm, and now hope that Barack Obama carries on the baton that has been passed to him for change in this country as well.John Edwards and Hillary Clinton also share this responsibility which Shirley Chisholm has made for them.Barack Obama, John Edwards and Hillary Clinton are all good candidates but the person who stands out above all of them is Shirley Chisholm’s and her electrifying and groundbreaking campaign of 1972 when Richard Nixon ran on the republican ticket and George McGovern was the democratic nominee…and Shirley Chisholm was the candidate and catalyst for CHANGE IN AMERICA as SHE CHANGED AMERICAN HISTORY and the future course of the country.She is the model for all of the other candidates to emulate or give tribute.The question of black leadership still exists, so far the question is if black/ african-americans are going to be voting for Hillary Clinton, wife of the first president (accepted as being Black) or Barack Obama – a black candidate who’s parents are racially different Kenyan-African/black and white American woman from Kansas.but as we all know curly hair and light of dark complexion means that your a black man and your are treated or perceived negatively by American society from your childhood through becoming an adult and the worse as you advance into your career/ or you suffer from past facial tactics and biases.Therefore being black often means you are Black listed often, treated unfairly, mistreated or treated deconstructively while others are often promoted fraudulently or constructively.Accept if you’re promoted for diversity reasons. But in this case all of your struggles and accomplishments are overlooked and you are seen as filling a position not because of your accomplishments but because of the color of your skin.Which brings us to today’s political topic (more or less).Often times the white/mainstream adopt a black person as their own and treat/promote them so specially that they separate them from the (priorities of the) flock.This person is often seen as a house (Negro) or (Uncle Tom) someone who has lost all of their cultural and historical values and has become a casualty of the important agenda. (In a few words).Black Americans are often faced with the challenge of voting for the underdog in political campaigns with the agenda of making a statement to the world or American society.White people often vote for underdogs but they could be potential winnersBlack people often vote for underdogs but they are losers who have no chance of winning or making a statement, in essence nearly useless in American society.Shirley Chisholm revolutionized America and became a revolutionary woman known around the world as one of the top 10 most important women in the world which dismissed all negative notions of the potential of black America, as she constructed the foundation for a renewed and revolutionized American society.TODAY….Today Barack Obama has been accepted/adopted and popularized by white American media and society far ahead of getting any concrete facts and information of is presidential run.American society has turned him into somewhat a pop-star instead of a serious political candidate like Shirley Chisholm.Hillary Clinton is a woman candidate who of course brings the potential of a woman candidate to the presidency of the USA, who naturally brings issues of black America to the presidency because of the shared black America and women’s movements together because of the Shirley Chisholm presidential Campaign era of the early-mid. 70’s, where she carried the needs of everyone in the country. Black AMERICA (is…very Serious)It would seem that the underdog here is John Edwards who the media has neglected like a potential black candidate, also the media has denied his john Kennedy like characteristics while over promoting Osama’s Lincoln similarities which is totally insane.Shirley Chisholm has created the revolution in America and changed the country from it’s racist a male-gender oriented history, and she has created the America we live in today. Not necessarily Martin Luther king who dissevers his credit especially in the south, but the national and world agenda belongs to Shirley Chisholm, at the dawn of our advanced economy in the 70’s Shirley Chisholm founded the new America… which the media is trying to destroy… so if the Media is looking for a revolutionary leader it is not Abraham Lincoln but it is Shirley Chisholm, who has created the society we all enjoy Today.Black people support serious people with a good message for the country, who are often the underdog like John Edwards and as we all know the leader of the pack often trips loses the race, while other move up and pass the front runners like Barack Obama or Hillary.Clinton.I’m not necessarily promoting john Edwards but I am promoting the ability and opportunities of the underdog.In the 70’s the Country had to be changed and reshaped and Shirley Chisholm as a catalyst for change address all of the issues in order to create a more civilized country.Today’s democratic candidates and the news media must recognize who has addressed change in this country and has made this country into a better place. Today’s candidates must learn how to build on the structure that Shirley Chisholm has created and at that point perhaps they would be able to see that they already have a path or trail blazed for them which will take them to the presidency of the United States.

Please see the PowerPoint presentation on Shirley Chisholm’s Groundbreaking Presidential run in 1972 when the political issues were about Vietnam War and the progression of black America, women in America and America as a whole nation represented by Shirley Chisholm.
