Sink to make amends and call in to Rev. Curry's radio show

Bishop Victor Curry Rev. Victor Curry used the power of the airwaves last week to blast Democrat Alex Sink for being a no-show at an NAACP event in Miami last week, so Sink has agreed to call in to his Tuesday show to hear him out.

Curry, who is head of Miami's large New Birth Cathedral of Faith International, president of the Miami-Dade NAACP chapter and owner of WMBM-AM 1490, used his weekly radio show last Tuesday to suggest that Sink was ignoring the black vote because she didn't attend the NAACP's candidate forum in Miami. Sink didn't even send a surrogate.

The Florida Courier, a Tampa-based black-owned newspaper, chronicled the affront in a front page story last week. Said Sink spokeswoman Kyra Jennings: "Alex Sink enjoys widespread support of African American voters across the state." She said Sink couldn't make the forum because of a scheduling conflict.

After Tuesday's Cabinet meeting, Sink will be a guest on Curry's radio show.

The black and hispanic communities should be concerned about Washington. Didn't Pres Obama take from food stamps fund to support keeping teachers in schools--labor unions behind the funds needed in the public school system---the monies taken from food stamps and went toward the Union based teachers/school systems--show in a tight decision-monies taken from the needy and most of the public school funds were harbored into an account to be held in the future SHOULD THERE BE A FURTHER CRISIS!
THE LAST PLACE MONIES SHOULD BE TAKEN FROM IS THE FOOD STAMP PROGRAMS THAT FEED THE HUNGRY--AND KEEPS STUDENTS HEALTHY--

I as surprised food stamp funds were ever considered! Especially as we give so generously overseas!

There's no need for Democrats to waste valuable campaign dollars and time working for the black vote, it's always a given, it's the hispanic vote the politicians in both party's always seem to have to work so hard for.
