    I watched the interview. He is a brilliant man who is genuinely serving the people (for now). Its disturbing how older black residents were willing to re-elect a mayor that didn’t do squat to clean newark up, simply because Corey wasn’t considered ‘black enough’. What is black enough? Skintone, attitude, genetic pooling? Wtf is black enough. Older black folks need to look in the damn mirror insteading of blaming every other race for being “racist and discriminatory”. YOU are just as bad! Now what do you have to say years later now that Corey has cleaned up Newark, dropped the murder rate, and has brought big business back to the city? Still not good enough for ‘real’ black people I bet. (Scoff)
