Summary: This show is about a voting dilemma for black voters--there is one republican candidate they support who is black (Bill Lucas), but the rest of the people they would like to vote for are democratic candidates. The discussion is about whether this weakens black political power or strengthens it. Commentary from Susan Watson is included. The guest is F. Edward Johnson, the second vice chairman of the Michigan State Republican Party.
