THE MUSLIM VOTE - BUSH AND BLACK JUDGES - BUSH AND BLACK WEALTH

There hasn't been very much written about the Muslim vote and I can't say I thought it was a big issue. The world was a very tense place after 9/11, but I thought the President did a good job in separating terrorists from Muslims. I think the Patriot Act, Guantanamo Bay and the general increase in racist rhetoric among Americans is what might explain some of this article on why the Muslim vote could hurt Bush.

I was under the impression that Bush was doing well in appointing black judges but Democrats were giving him a hard time because they were all too conservative. Hazel Trice Edney of Black Press USA has something to say about that.

Derrick Jackson wrote a commentary article for The Boston Globe's website on Bush and Black Wealth and he brings into question Bush's claims that he has made progress in black home ownership.

All in all, none of it great news for Bush.
