WELL, WE DONT EVEN CARE.

WITH THAT, ILL TURN TO YOU,

JERRY GONZALEZ.

I FIND INTERESTING ABOUT THE

LATINO VOTING BLOC IN GEORGIA IS

THAT IT HAS INCREASED AT THE

SAME NUMBER AS REGISTERED WHITE

VOTERS, BUT HERES THE KEY

DIFFERENCE.

THERE ARE FAR FEWER LATINO

VOTERS IN GEORGIA.

THE FACT THEYVE INCREASED

ALMOST 100,000 EACH

PROPORTIONATELY, LATINO VOTERS

HAVE FAR OUT-PERFORMED WHITE

VOTERS IN THE STATE.

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS?

>> WELL, YES.

LATINO VOTERS CERTAINLY, WHEN WE

STARTED AS AN ORGANIZATION, WERE

ONLY 10,000 LATINO VOTERS STATE

WIDE.

ITS ESTIMATED NOW WE HAVE ABOUT

250,000 LATINO VOTERS STATE

WIDE, AND THEY HAVE BEEN

OUTPERFORMING THE NATIONAL

LATINO VOTER PARTICIPATION RATE

FOR SEVERAL ELECTION CYCLES

GOING.

SO AS THE MARGINS AND

COMPETITIVE STATE-WIDE RACES IN

GEORGIA DECREASE, STRENGTH OF

THE LATINO VOTE CONTINUES TO

INCREASE.

SO WE DO THIS NOT JUST FOCUSING

ON THE LATINO COMMUNITY BUT

WORKING IN COLLABORATION WITH

OTHER COMMUNITIES OF COLOR TO

MAKE SURE THAT WE CAN LOOK AT

BUILDING POWER ACROSS RACES TO

ENSURE ALL OUR COMMUNITIES HAVE

A VOICE AT THE TABLE.

THATS REALLY WHAT WERE DOING

HERE IN GEORGIA.

>> YEAH.

I THINK, LOOK.

LOOKING AT FACES THE FOLKS AT

HOME SEE ON-SCREEN, THE POCKETS

OF VOTER EXIST ACROSS THE

COUNTRY AND ARE VERY IMPORTANT

DECIDERS OF FEDERAL ELECTIONS.

I HAVE TO GO TO YOU NOW,

MONDALE.

THE OP-ED YOU WROTE IN THE

"DALLAS MORNING NEWS" WAS LIKE A

SUNDAY MORNING SERMON.

I WANT TO READ A QUICK LINE.

USUALLY PROGRESSIVES LOSE

ELECTIONS DUE TO ANTIQUATED

ENGAGEMENT STRATEGIES MISGUIDED

BY A CONSULTANT CLASS THAT FAILS

TO UNDERSTAND HOW TO MOVE BLACK

COMMUNITIES TO THE POLLS AND THE

RESULT STAYS THE SAME.

LIBERALS LEFT SHOPPING

CANDIDATES TO WHITE-LEANING

CANDIDATES WHO RARELY VOTE FOR

THOSE CANDIDATES DOING LESS WORK

TURNING OUTINGS THE PARTYS

NATURAL BASE, BLACK VOTERS.

MY FRIEND, WHEN IT COMES TO

BLACK MEN FEW ENTER THAT IN

CONVERSATION.

OBVIOUSLY YOU KNOW THE BLACK

WOMEN DO.

HOW IT FEELS TO SEE PEOPLE

LEAPFROG OVER US AND TRY TO GO

AFTER SUBURBAN WOMEN, EUPHEMISM

FOR WHITE WOMEN, WHO LEFT A LONG

TIME AGO.

SCHOOL US ON CENTERING BLACK

MEN, ANOTHER KEY COMPONENT, TO

THE DEMOCRATIC VOTING BASE.

>> THANKS FOR HAVING ME.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY CRUCIAL THAT WE

ACKNOWLEDGE THAT.

WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT LEAPFROGGING

DEMOGRAPHICS, BLACK VOTERS

DEFINITELY ARE LEAPFROGGED AND

BLACK MEN, ESPECIALLY

CONSIDERING THE FACT THIS COUNTRY MADE BLACK MEN THE FIRST

COUNTRY MADE BLACK MEN THE FIRST

GUINEA PIG FOR VOTER SUE PRIGSEE

IM

-- SUPPRESSION.

ARE YOU THERE?

GETTING FEEDBACK.

>> YOURE THERE.

>> I WAS SAYING BLACK MEN WITH

PASSAGE OF THE 15th AMENDMENT

BECAME THE FIRST TARGETS OF

VOTER SUPPRESSION AND ITS NEVER

STOPPED IN THIS COUNTRY.

WE SEE THE WAY THE TRADITIONAL

CAMPAIGNS ARE RAN IN THIS

COUNTRY ARE TRANSACTIONAL AND

APPROACH BLACK MEN ONE OR TWO

MONTHS OUT BEFORE AN ELECTION

WITH PROVERBIAL CHURCH FANS AND

CHICKEN THINKING ITS ENOUGH.

NONE IS.

THEY THINK WERE APATHETIC OR

APOLITICAL.

LESS NOTHERES NO APOLITICAL BLA

MEN IN THE COUNTRY.

IF SO, WEVE FAILED AT OUR

EFFORTS TO REACH THEM.

WHAT WE DO AT THE BLACK MALE

VOTERS PROJECT, START ADD

PROGRAM BASED IN LESSONS LEARNED

FROM THE HIERARCHY NEEDS TELLS

US IF A PEOPLE DONT HAVE BASIC

NEEDS MET THEY CANT THINK ABOUT

THINGS SELF-ACTUALIZATION.

WE PRESENT OUR POLITICS TO BLACK

MEN IN THIS COUNTRY IS

SELF-ACTUALIZATION.

UNTIL WE TALK ABOUT HOW TO

ADDRESS THINK QUALIFIED

IMMUNITY, THE ISSUES THEY

ADDRESS DEFINITELY ARE, FALL

UNDER THAT CATEGORY.

NOT TALKING HOW TO PUT TRADES

BACK INTO SCHOOLS SO BROTHERS

CANNOT BE A PART OF THIS RACIST

HIRING PROCESS WE CALL AMERICAS

WORK FORCE, NOT TALKING HOW TO

DEAL WITH THIS THEN WERE

WASTING TIME REACHING OUT TO

BROTHERS.

NOT ONLY WASTING TIMES, ITS THE

EXACT REASON WHY NEARLY HALF THE

BLACK MEN IN THIS COUNTRY

REGISTERED TO VOTE FOR FIVE

YEARS HAVE NOT VOTED MORE THAN

FIVE YEARS, SORRY.

FIVE CONSECUTIVE ELECTIONS HAVE

NOT VOTED IN THOSE ELECTION

CYCLES.

ITS THE WORK OF US, BLACK

PEOPLE, PEOPLE ARE COLOR, TO

TURN OUT OUR COMMUNITY.

SAY ONE MORE THING BEFORE YOU GO

ON.

>> QUICKLY.

GOT TO WRAP.

YEAH.

>> YEAH.

I WANT TO SAY, THOUGH, IS, IT IS

NOT CANDIDATES OR PARTIES THAT

ARE RESPONSIBLE.

JOE BIDEN IS THE RECIPIENT OF

THE VOTER TURNOUT IN GEORGIA BUT

NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR IT.

SAME TRUE FOR WHATS ABOUT TOO

HAPPEN IN THE RUNOFF.

WHAT IS AND WHO IS RESPONSIBLE

ARE THE PEOPLE SITTING AT THIS

TABLE NOW TURNED OUT 104,000

BLACK MEN THAT DID NOT VOTE FOR
