Where do Black people turn with Bush back in the White House?

Carter, Richard

New York Amsterdam News;1/13/2005, Vol. 96 Issue 3, p10
The article reports that when the 2004 U.S. presidential campaign was going full blast, many African American people fully expected Senator John Kerry to win and eagerly looked forward to better days. That's because President George W. Bush was widely believed to be less than enthusiastic toward our lingering frustrations and legitimate aspirations. But that was then and this is now. Bush was reelected by nearly four million popular votes. Yet, according to some speculation, Kerry is actively mulling another run in 2008--when Bush is back in Texas punching rows instead of floundering around on the world stage.
