An attentive reader catches what appear to be two not-quite-fully-compatible quotes from Chris Owens on the significance of race in the 11th.
From Brooklyn Papers in April:
“The Congressional Black Caucus is already too small, so for [Yassky] to position himself as a progressive, knowing full well what it would do to black representation, is not desirable.”
And in a WNBC piece that aired yesterday:
“A lot of people say that this is a black seat. I am not one of those people.”
