Mike Barnicle on the disconnect between politicians and the black community

As Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush continues to struggle across several polls and stumble in dealing with questions of race, Morning Joe’s Mike Barnicle talks with the Reverend Al Sharpton and NPR’s Cokie Roberts about the disconnect between many politicians and the real needs of the black community. “In this period of time in our country’s recent history, we’ve seen Ferguson, Charleston, Baltimore…. How can people dealing in politics, trying to attract minority votes, be so tone-deaf to something that’s right in front of all of us?,” asks Mike. Watch the conversation here on the challenges faced by new voting laws in the South and comparisons of Jeb Bush’s oblivious comments to those made by presidential candidate Mitt Romney in the previous election cycle.
