This interview is taking place this evening (1/23) in South Carolina.
On @breakfastclubam , @cthagod and his co-hosts empower Black entrepreneurship, artists, and intellectuals. The discussion he had with Pete last night focused on how Black america will look under a Buttigieg presidency. The event was also held at a Black owned restaurant. pic.twitter.com/lOwJFQLkas— Bria Wallace (@WallaceBria) January 24, 2020
After the event, I spoke to a voter in the audience named John who wasn't committed before coming to see Buttigieg/Charlamagne: "I’m a Pete supporter now. He killed it. He wasn’t scared to say black. That meant a lot to me too." https://t.co/YF2zjhfr8m— Abby D. Phillip (@abbydphillip) January 24, 2020
Charlamagne Tha God: "Why haven't they made Election Day a federal holiday? That would make so much sense."— Justin Gomez (@JustinGomezABC) January 24, 2020
Buttigieg: "You know why? Because if they did, more people would vote."
.@cthagod asked @PeteButtigieg about his criminal justice plan. Buttigieg received some applause when he started by saying the current system “is designed to push [the formerly incarcerated] right back in” when they try to reintegrate into their communities. pic.twitter.com/VIjxaHgsrz— LaCrai Mitchell (@LaCraiMitchell) January 24, 2020
First q of the night, @cthagod asks @PeteButtigieg how his Douglass plan will help black voters economically. Amongst other things, Buttigieg says we must recognize economic empowerment can’t be separated from education & that it’s important to put $$ back into black businesses. pic.twitter.com/cB7FFFHMD4— LaCrai Mitchell (@LaCraiMitchell) January 24, 2020
"They talk about the black vote like it's some guy, like it's a monolith, like everybody thinks the same," @PeteButtigieg tells @cthagod in Moncks Corner on connecting with black voters. "I'm very intentional & very conscious of the fact that this can't just be a campaign thing." pic.twitter.com/Aor8PMkLPx— Meg Kinnard (@MegKinnardAP) January 24, 2020
ANOTHER FULL HOUSE where @PeteButtigieg is having a serious conversation in @cthagod own backyard; Moncks Corner.
