Is A Reality - Use It
^vibration is connected with the coming election. Many in
the black community seem to~feeHhat~the invinsible
"they" will not'eare whether thejnrote or not. Some ask
what difference it makes if they vote or not.
?Such attitude is a mockery of the pains of the recent years
when many dedicated people, both black and
white sought and actually got the equality for all.

It is true tnat freedom once given cannot De taken
It is also true that those who fail to use their freedom
for the betterment of themselves and mankind are still
in chains. Such a people will always be taken for granted
and their views are often misrepresented because they
do not seem to care either way.

The power of the ballot box is one of the greatest
powers that democracy gives man. That is the kind of
power that those unfortunate enough to live in an
authoritarian society lack.
If we in a democratic society fail to utilize the power of
the ballot box to say what we want and to get what we
desire, then as a race we are probably doomed.
. The law may be weighed in favor of the rich but one
man, one vote, is a reality in this country of ours.
So use it.
Wanted: Love In A
of . ,
In any newspaper on any given day one can find news
of a killing, a robbery, an assault or a theft. Headlines
throughout newspapers tell of all manner of crimes and
crime attempts. Many people are victimized every day.
The disturbing fact, however, is that too many of the
crimes are committed by blacks against blacks.
That is not to condone nor encourage crime by blacks
. against whites. But simply to say that black folk must
stop killing and robbing each other. We must cease to be
torn and ripped apart for the sake of a few measly
dollars or to satisfy a passing passion.
There is a very valuable lesson to be learned from
Aesop, one of the most prolific storytellers in history
(who, by the way, is said to have been blacky The fable
goes like this: A young boy was told by an old man to
break a bundle of twigs that had been tied together by
some very strong twine. Quite expectedly, the young boy
was unable to complete the task. Then the old man told
the boy to unravel the twine around the twigs
whereupon the boy quite easily broke them... one by one.
As long as we are allowed to be separated, and
destroying each other seems to be the best way, being
controlled will always be an easy job. The one most

lllipvi vain i/iling uv/vuvu ill tiiv uiuvn vvhihimiiivj
love. The twine that held the twigs together is symbolic
of the love that will hold black people together.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, and I believe he
said it with as much sincerity as any man on earth
- could, We must learn to live together as brothers, lest
we all die together as fools.

I am an inmate in prison. I read
the article in the paper that was
written and I agree, people
should know that blacks are
doing more than obstructing
justice. I also think that blacks
should know what's happening to
their loved ones in prison.
I want a subscription to your
paper and I want to contribute to
it also. I am a fair hand at art and
I would like to submit^ cartoon
strip for your paper, in exchange
for prison news printed in your
paper. If you are interested write

furnish you with cartoon strip
either way if you want.

I noted in your September 26
issue the article on the Small
Claims Court, and wanted to
point out that a change in the law
increased the amount that can be
taken to Small Claims Court from
1300.00 to $500.00.
