Is it ok that he's specifically targeting blacks according to this Yahoo article?
"The president traveled to 14 states in the final month of the campaign, some of them twice, in a bid to rekindle the enthusiasm of young voters, liberals, blacks and independents whose ballots propelled him to the White House."
So we've got age group, political group, race, political group. Is this ok? Is it ok that politicians in general see us as nothing more than target demographics? Why would the president be campaigning more towards one race than another?
Or is the group of people contributing to the article misspeaking?
Campaigns cost a great deal of money. Of course, part of the process is getting the best bang for the buck; isolating the best "the target group." Elections, campaigns, target groups, demographics, polls, surveys...it's a FT industry

Every politician has their own target groups... We are all different and will vote for whom we choose, what those (young voters, blacks, and independent groups) have in common are that they rarely vote. So like the statement said he is trying to get their enthusiasm up again so they can vote again, and let their voice be heard. Maybe other politicians should target those groups as well......
