Pete Buttigieg attended private meeting with black theologians, thought leaders
“It was an opportunity for Mayor Pete to learn, to listen and to hear."
By Associated Press


"Former South Bend, Indiana, mayor and presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg met privately with a group of African American theologians and thought leaders in December, another sign of the candidate’s ongoing efforts to bolster his lagging poll numbers with black voters."
"The 37-year-old has made faith a fixture of his campaign: He often references religion during stump speeches, regularly attends worship at churches while on the trail and appeared at a protest led by progressive pastor and activist the Rev. William Barber II. Buttigieg's campaign was also the first in this election season to hire a national faith outreach director."
"The private December meeting may have been a part of an effort by the Buttigieg campaign to use faith as a bridge to reach black voters. Buttigieg attended a service at Barber’s Greenleaf Christian Church in North Carolina the week before, where the openly gay candidate — who brought a Bible with him to the event — fielded questions and outlined positions on raising the minimum wage, enhancing public schools, eliminating private prisons, increasing access to unions and providing Medicare to all who want it."

That is great that Mayor Pete is meeting with Black leaders as he needs the Black vote in order to increase his presidential candidate support. Buttigieg is a man of great faith, obviously, as compared to the rest. He has a good plan for everyone including Blacks and that is why they agreed to meet with him and no doubt there will be plenty of more meetings with them and other minorities as time goes on.

Older Blacks will have a problem with Pete being a practicing homosexual.

Serious question. Why do blacks typically not like Buttigieg? I’ve seen this several times on the web with little explanation. It goes deeper than the homosexual issue. Something with him as mayor?
