From Urban Faith:
African Americans' "growing presence in government has actually moderated their policy views, and they are not as liberal as they were during the 1970s and early 1980s," said Katherine Tate, Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Irvine. "Middle-class blacks, even government workers, are likely to support some downsizing to balance the federal budget. ... Having blacks involved, as mayors or state legislative leaders within their parties, makes the politics of these unpleasant decisions more palatable for blacks," she said.
