Maybe not but its clear to me at least. He was at best not looking for a good solution to the Country's problems. And almost all my Republican friends are truthfully glad he passed.. bc they say the country was better off without him..not bc the just wished him dead.

So lets just say perhaps its not cool to post it. But I doubt if my Republican friends are different than any other repubs.

You are happy that a fellow American died, because you disagree with his politics? What a shitty set of friends you have, and what a shitty person you are.

Goodbye, no need to debate you ever again.

Why are you twisting his words?

He's happy Cummings is no longer in congress!
Not everyone is fond of corrupt career politicians.

Places like Detroit, Baltimore, Chicago, LA's inner cities poor living conditions, crimes are the results of these people's policies!

He went after the very person whose policies helped lower African American unemployment at a record low!

I guess in Oklahoma City and Meridian Idaho where overweight poor people pet their daughters and collect spare tires and sofas on their front lawn is the culture center of Republican values ?

This is the problem about politics taking over common sense. I'm glad he's out of politics but I'm sad that he has passed at such a young age.

Humanity towards ones fellow man should be before politics. No matter what everyone else does. I'm not perfect and have my, "I wish that bastard would die" moments but since Mr. Cummings has actually died and in an untimely way, we should strive to be better. That's what I'm proposing.

Firstly, I pray that his loved ones receive healing over their loss - that's what compassionate Americans do for one another.
As for the man's professional life: IMO, Elijah perverted the purpose of civil rights and perpetuated racist rhetoric that fostered violent divisions within multiple communities; as a result, his congressional efforts resulted in monumental failure.
