Dear Editor:

Why does the Black Community allow outsiders to dictate or influence who gets elected to represent us?? The unfortunate history that consistently repeat itself over and over again is that anyone with a large sum of money can easily infiltrate the Black Community. When a candidate comes to the community for support, it is extremely important that the leaders communicate with the local Miami-Dade Democratic Black Caucus. Why is this important? The caucus takes a nonapologetic stand with making sure that the candidate will commit to support the Black Agenda. 

The Black Agenda spells out the plan to stop gentrification and covert gerrymandering that displaces the Black communities. Moreover, the agenda also deals with supporting Black elected officials who are incumbents who fight for issues in the Black Community; affordable housing; economic development, access to college education, voter restoration, more support for Black businesses to name a few. Lastly, we can no longer allow any political outsiders to come to our communities and place outsiders to run in the Presidential elections on down to the local elected offices without the involvement of the Miami-Dade Democratic Black Caucus leadership.
