Analysis

                     "The odds are already stacked against Angel Joy
                     Chavis Rocker in her quest to be the next president of the
                     United States.
                     She has no political experience, no name recognition and no
                     campaign money. Furthermore, Rocker, who is a Black American, is also a
                     registered Republican."

 Rocker says that she should be treated like any other candidate, however the media always mentions and mostly talks about the fact that she is the first black women to run for president. She has very meager funding, which is isn't traceable. Her only campaign strategy so far has been to utilize the internet. The articles that can be found on Angel Rocker come mostly from her website, which are obviously biased.
