Introduction

1. Haynie, African Americans Legislators.

2. See DeLeon, “Research Methods.”

3. King, Keohane, and Verba, Designing Social Inquiry, 44.

4. I define “black interests” as issues of relevance to the black community. I recognize the growing diversity among blacks, and it is therefore difficult to define “black interests.” Yet at the same time I make some important assumptions because there are certain policies and programs politicians may pursue that are in the interest of blacks. Therefore, I have taken into account objective measures of social and economic disparities between blacks and whites to define black interests. Some issues that blacks deem relevant are also of interest to other communities. However, for blacks these issues are of special relevance, given the intensity of black preferences. See Gamble, “Black Political Representation.” Also see Cohen, The Boundaries of Blackness; Reed, Class Notes; and Young, Inclusion and Democracy.

5. See, for example, Gamble, “Black Political Representation,” and Haynie, African American Legislators.

6. See, for example, Russ Bynum, “Nation’s 478 Black Mayors Hail Progress: More Minority Leaders in Mostly White Cities,” Associated Press, March 10, 2001.
