    But I think the GOP has a long way to go before they are able to get above 30% in Latino communities. Even the Cubans are changing.

    Personally, I like being in the party that represents everyone, looks like everyone. It's idealistic... but I genuinely hope for the day when more black politicians are representing predominantly white jurisdictions, and even when white politicians represent predominantly black jurisdictions - both with genuine public support. Things change so slowly, but I hope that the African American vote remains at least as high as comparable white communities, controlling for income and other variables.
