Bernie needs an Emergency Meeting to discuss Black Vote NOW!!! [View all]

It's really been his only big failure in the race.
He simply can't lose the black vote 80-20% and win the nomination.

So? Can that change? Can he cut that to 60-40?

Probably not before S.Carolina.
So, why compete there now?

Put on your campaign managers hat with me, Bernie supporters.
Give me your best ideas on what you'd do if you were Jeff Weaver.

My suggestions:
Pull all campaign staff and commercials from S.Carolina (explain this by saying that you admit Hillarys lead there is insurmountable and that you will concentrate on March 1 states).

Hold 3 focus groups exclusively with African Americans.
Group One: Pro--Hillary. Why do they like her? Is there anything Bernie could do to sway them?
Group Two: Neutral: Pros and cons of both candidates? What do they still need to hear?
Group Three: Pro-Bernie: Why do they support him? Why don't their family/friends?

Gather all of your staff members and endorsers that are black.
Have Ben Jealous and Nina turner get them in a room for a "come to Jesus" type meeting.
No white staff in the room including Bernie.
This group should come up with specific things that they think can be done.

These are my ideas? What are yours?
I'd especially like to hear from African Americans.
