    You want to paint Mrs Sloan as the black people's candidate and inject race into the campaign go ahead play the race card. But just so you know Mrs Sloan is a candidate for all the people. She is the only canidate in the race who is not bought and sold. She is the most passionate canidate she really cares about all the citizens of Meridian young, old, rich,poor, Asian, Black,Hispanic, Indian, or White everybody. If tough question are asked at this forum great. More tough questions need to be asked. Just like the old saying if you can't take the heat stay out of the kitchen!
