As a Republican (and a white middle-class male), I don't really see any particular needs of the balck demographic per se. What I see is needs of people in a particular socio-economic situation - who also happen to be black, though others in that same situation might be white, or Hispanic, or Indian. Is my perception wrong? I see a person first, and a race second. Is this not how others see the world? Is this not how blacks see the world? And what exactly are the specific needs of the black demographic?
