The examination also explores why these issues are, in the view of some, no longer relevant and require radical attention. In addition, this work analyzes: Black voting behavior in the 2000 presidential election- the continuing significance of Affirmative Action and attempts to dissolve it- and offers critiques of current Black leaders. The study concludes with an exploration of the declining influence of the CBC in the Black community and examines the CBC attempts to influence U.S. foreign policy in a conservative political culture.
