His take: Of course - we've been voting for white candidates all our lives. That really struck me, and I think Reichert's big win Tuesday is just more proof of that history leading to open mindedness.
Erick wrote this over on Peach Pundit:
A friend shared with me a conversation from Tuesday night at the Board of Elections. A wise man and community leader down there said, when about half the precincts were in, that the blacks had shown they could grow up and change. The whites will have to do the same at the next election.
Our own best stab at analysis can be found here. I want to call attention to this quote, in particular, which I think Reichert gave to everyone yesterday:
"I recognize this as an opportunity that has been given to us as a community. But this little opportunity is a fragile thing at this point, and if it is dropped it will be broken, perhaps irrevocably."
