Third Rail Eps 51: Racing Stripes

As historically “Black” districts in Central Brooklyn evolve, encompass various neighborhoods, and/or gentrify, Black candidates for elected office use tactics, voter targeting and coded messaging to appeal to different sub constituencies that cut across race, class and a variety of identity lines. 
This week in Third Rail we examine electoral politics in a gentrifiying Central Brooklyn with guests, Anthonine Pierre of The Brooklyn Movement Center and Theo Moore.
 
Segment One: Together we review the Central Brooklyn races to watch in this political season. 
  Segment Two: We use the recent near-upset of new comer Adem Bunkeddeko over veteran Congress person Yvette Clarke as a jump-off point to explore how Black candidates increasingly use divisions within gentrification, white progressivism and Black identity to build their base of voters. Segment Three: "Tell 'Em Why You Mad" Intro and Outro theme Music: “City Survival” by MC K-Swift featuring TreZure Empire.                   Episode Music: "Wide Eyes" by Chad Crouch. With additional editing and production by Siad "Gypsy" Reid.
