Examining Race And Politics In South Carolina, Ahead Of 2020 Primary | NBC News NOW
in Charleston

South

Carolina

I met with members of a group who meet up often to talk about family faith and

politics

nearly all are black college-educated and in the early to mid 30s there are about 30 of them in all a seemingly homogenous group but these men and women aren't necessarily on the same page when it comes to the Democratic

primary

there's this idea that black voters and the black vote is like a model if this is one big block and it's Biden all you hear is Biden Biden

Biden but that's not necessary the case within your friend Rubright I wouldn't say so yeah honestly matter of fact I think I probably hear his name less than a lot of the other which name is ever named hearing that people are supported so previously it was you know Harris family you hear yang a lot I can't pronounce it because it put its Budaj edge footage a suit of jazz you hear his name on out again and then Bernie this is 20/20 where are we headed it's not the same world
globalization pending war impeachment there are the things we have to take into consideration and I'm not sure that of Bernie Sanders who is as old as my mom or Elizabeth Warren or a Joe Biden are the people that are going to take me into the next country that I want to live in what issues are important for you and what do you hope your candidate choice will will speak on the issues that are really important to me one are women's issues and mental health particularly mental health

because that's the field that I'm in I want to talk about student loans I want to talk about health care I want to talk about the future of the environment and that there will be a world here when my daughter grows up all of the top tier candidates are trying to sway voters like these folks they're visiting historically black colleges and universities joining black congregants for Sunday church services and spending millions for ads on black radio why do you think we're so stuck
on that idea that there is just a black vote because you know when you talk about other groups there's the Midwestern vote and working-class vote and the the single mother vote but you you always hear it's just the black vote why is there because we haven't had the privilege or luxury if you will of being able to be as segmented we almost have always had to kind of collectively put together our vote to make a real difference a lot of people they don't look at african-americans as

people who are politically astute I don't think they realize how how politically involved african-americans are how interested in

politics

we are especially as the times change we're getting more and more active younger people are coming up so I think it's changing and I don't think people have have accepted that change it hey NBC
