Ron

i saw that elinor tatum of the amsterdam also made that same point recently. very relevant. i wonder if he consciously stayed away. maybe there was some tacit agreement.

then again, he understandaby has been focusing on widening his appeal, to other groups that have some open-mindedness toward him.

Obama did not make a significant presence in Harlem. Maybe he would have pulled stronger here if he did more campaigning here.

There are many undocumented in Brooklyn, for certain, but there are also many, many longtime first generation Black immigrants and they are transforming Central Brooklyn. The civil servants with mta, in municipal offices, etc.

Brooklyn may have more Black, but how many are documented? if they are not, it erodes the political power because the can't vote and make their voices heard.
