    what % of the population is African American? How does the Native American population stand on the issues? Can you give some insights into the racial/ethnic complexities?
    We need some strong advertising to show how voting GOP is NOT in anybody's best interest.

    •  African American population in AK (0+ / 0-)

      is quite small. Not sure the numbers but definitely higher in military base towns,i.e., Anchorage, Fairbanks.

      The Native population is around 13%. In 1930 the Native population was 51% of the state! There is strong historical support for Don Young and Ted Stevens in the Bush. They have both brought home the "bacon" that has helped "modernize" village life. Also, Young's wife is an Athabascan from Ft. Yukon.
