The Freedom Party is a Black and Latino led political party open to all people. It is a vehicle to address historical & structural marginalization, economic racism, and exclusion of Blacks and Latinos from the state power structure. No more token politics and begging for crumbs that are inadequate to address the dire needs of the Black and Latino community. The Freedom party represents true empowerment, and a real seat at the table. Human rights for all – The time has come!
Mario Cuomo, in 1982, not only ran on an all-white slate but he also refused to appoint a single Black commissioner in his administration even though the Black vote was the marginal difference in his defeat of Mayor Ed Koch in the critical Democratic primary. When asked why he refused to appoint a Black commissioner as a payback for Black support, he stated that he owed Blacks nothing since, instead of respectfully voting for him, they hostilely voted against Koch.
And now we are going to support his son? Do not listen to established Black Leadership who will tell you to vote for Andrew Cuomo. They are bought and paid for and will attempt to get you to work against your own interests to help the Democratic party.
The Freedom Party needs 50,000 votes to be the first bona fide Black & Latino led state recognized independent political party in the United States. 400,000 votes would be more than any third party ever received and would create a strong lobby for political leverage. 1.6 million votes and the election is won.
Is there any sane rational reason not to support this movement?
