“Given the significant number of black voters in South Carolina, that primary should be a referendum on 21st century civil rights issues such as racial disparities in the criminal justice system, the rise of hate crimes across this nation, the racial gap in health care and educational opportunities, and the still present income gap between blacks and whites in this country.
As Iowans rightly made the candidates deal with ethanol and oil and the people of New Hampshire made them address the economy and immigration, The African-American community should force real debate on our particular American issues.
Many undecided African-American voters like me can ill afford to throw our vote away at this historic moment, we must seize the time.”
