Wade Iii Kasich is nearing decision on White House run by Ike my Balogu contributing writer Columbus with All the republicans running for the White House it is hard to say who is going to emerge As the front runner from that Stampede to Duke it out with the presumed democratic front runner. And former Secretary of state Hilary Clinton. But one thing that is easy to conclude is this running for the White House on the Republican Side is starting to look More like Boston Marathon considering the burgeoning crowd of candidates getting into the race. Just recently three More republicans entered the race. Highly touted paediatric neurosurgeon or. Ben Carson former new York governor George Pataki and South Carolina senator Lindsay Graham All threw their Long shot hats in the ring touting their Republican credentials and bringing the total number of candidates to a lot. Its Good for democracy. One thing about having a lot of candidates in the race aside from the Many free for All brawls that will occur is that there a no Clear front runner which makes it a wide open contest which in turn gives each candidate a Chance to possibly emerge As one of the elite contestants. Perhaps that a Why Ohio governor John Kasich is thinking about getting into the race. Kasich who May also be positioning himself to Rise in Case the stronger candidates with broader household names stumble badly recently formed the a new Day for american Pac. The governor who in 2014, ruthlessly clobbered his democratic rival de Fitzgerald in his reelection contest has said that he is seriously thinking about running and continues to travel to Early primary states to test the Waters and see How his message resonates outside Ohio. Kasich a message resonated quite Well in Ohio a presidential Battleground state but How about outside the state a a we la see a said Kasich who is also travelling to see How Well he can compete for donors adding a a we la see whether i can have the and that a really the Bottom line. Its really no rocket science. Whether or not Kasich runs will depends a great Deal on How successful he thinks he will be in elbowing and muscling his Way to the front Row of the upper crust of contenders which in Many ways is a direct result of How Well he is liked in South Carolina where he visited last week in new Hampshire where he was recently and is scheduled to go Back and in Iowa where he is booked to speak on june 24. It goes without saying ohioans Are eager to know his intentions. Last week Kasich said that he will publicly announce his plans in july. If Kasich decides to run he will join a budding Shoal of candidates that see Kasich/4c editorial the sad state of Cleveland a a act the association for the advancement of a nobody a the truth of the matter is that the leadership of the Cleveland Branch of the a act is in a sad state of affairs at the most Inopportune time. It is not our intent to be critical of such a Noble and historically ingrained local institution on a whim but As advocates of Black people As a whole our readership and the Community we serve we Are obligated to speak truth to Power. But in the Case of the local a act there is a Power shortage. At a time that the a act should be the Flag bearer against Justice denied to Black people in Cleveland they Are unrecognizable far far from their de Facto duty of gatekeeper. As far As we can Tell somebody left the Gate open and the former gatekeepers Are nowhere to be found. We Are at a crossroad of historical proportions. With at least three cases of unarmed Black people dying at the hands of Cleveland police an intercession of City government and police affairs by the Federal department of Justice and a National wave of protest sweeping across the country one would think that if nothing else a act leadership would be at the forefront of activities on behalf of our civil rights. Instead they be gone in the direction of not Only has Cleveland a act presi Dent Hilton Smith been a missing in action a but even the Guy who is threatening to run against him for president if they Are Ever allowed to hold an election Hasni to shown up either. Now is not the time for our most potent civil rights organization to want to fight this fight with press releases. Leaders Lead by showing up and doing something. Reverend Jawanza Colvin is a shining example of what leadership should look like right now in Cleveland. Other leaders both Young and old have also come Forth to Bear that Cross but a act leadership is starting to look More like a double Cross. Infighting Power and politics have All but crippled the effectiveness of Cleveland a a act. This has to Stop soon. To put it mildly this is not the representation we have come to expect from them and this paper refuses to stand by As an a act apologist. For Christ a Sake even White people have taken up the cause. And yes there have been a few Wildcat outbreaks of rogue a act members trying to do the right thing on their own in fear of being reprimanded by the organizational body. And while some members have been Able to use their individual talents for the Good of the cause in spite of the see naacp/2a ceo Jacklyn Chisholm changes culture of education at be orc by Rhonda Crowder staff reporter a i am called to do this a said or.
