They’re being sent to gin up black voter turnout.

Its an 11th hour desperation move. O won’t win NC this time around, despite Jesse Jackson and Alicia Keys’ best effort.

Zero is sunk there.

Black churches have pulled back support since the gay statement by the President. My humble guess is that President was going to get his normal 100 percent gay vote statistic (like 2008), but the statement likely cost him 20 percent of the black church vote. It was a decision for cash funds from the Hollywood crowd, and he has to regret it now that he needs the votes more than the cash.
