SOUNDBITE (English) Liz Matory, Registered Republican voter:"I lost sleep over becoming a Black Republican. And I had to seek for an outsider. So I do see President Trump as an outsider. He is creating really impactful changes that we have needed for now two, three generations. Close your eyes. Focus on what you care about. And you determine from president on down to school board which candidates represent you."ASSOCIATED PRESSARCHIVE: Milwaukee – 7 April 20203.

SOUNDBITE (English) Vernon Parker, Registered Republican voter: "We are the only monolithic group in America that our vote is taken for granted. And I look at President Trump and I look at, you know, I look at the fact that he is doing something to reverse the three strikes and you're out rule that was established by Joe Biden that has locked up so many African Americans. And it puts... you know, that has split so many families. And, you know, just the judicial reform... whether you like the man or not, I think that we aren't seeing, you know, getting these African American men out of jail, putting them, you know, back with their families."ASSOCIATED PRESSRichmond, Virginia – 21 October 2020++SOUNDBITE PARTIALLY COVERED++5. SOUNDBITE (English) Alaysia Black Hackett, Independent voter:"I cannot get with the racism and the inability to speak out against injustices. I just have a problem with that. As, as was stated in my intro, I'm also a pastor and the Bible says and puts the word justice in the Bible more than any other word. President Trump is literally bringing support for, you know, white extremists. Silence, to me is consent and the fact that he's not speaking up against white supremacists who are literally terrorizing the America he's trying to make great again."ASSOCIATED PRESSARCHIVE: Portland, Oregon–7 September 20206.

SOUNDBITE (English) Byron Gladden, Registered Democrat voter: "I have reviewed both plans. I have issues, of course, with both plans. I don't think both plans are perfect. When I read the Biden plan as relates to the African American community that spoke to a specific class that spoke to middle and upper class African American entrepreneurs and, you know, and clergy and those type of people. It didn't speak to those that are getting evicted next door to me. In order to extend a child's life expectancy in my district, I would have to move into to the northern white, affluent, gentrified part of Greensboro to extend their life expectancy, an average of twenty four to twenty six years. That is due to structural and institutional racism. That is due to redlining, and that has been crafted by Democrats and Republicans. As a liberal, I am woke enough to see that both parties have issues. I am also charged with to see which party can I influence."ASSOCIATED PRESSDetroit – 14 September 20209.

SOUNDBITE (English) Oscar Hall, Registered Democrat voter:"Not only President Donald Trump. It's something has happened all of my life. I lived it in the South. That's what we're putting up with. That's what I put up with. And the same thing has happened today, to young folks. They outsourced the ways that they could have made money for jobs and they outsourced them to another country or what have you or moved them to a state that doesn't have unions. And so we talk about all the crime that we are having now in the inner cities, it's because the jobs left the city and they doesn't have anything else to do. I'd like to see a president in that office in Washington, D.C., that's a President for all of the people, not just the select few."ASSOCIATED PRESSARCHIVE: Detroit – 10 March 202011.

White House exteriorSTORYLINE: Black voters on both sides of the aisle say the civility and inclusivity of the two presidential candidates is on their minds as they prepare to head to the polls before Election Day Nov 3."We are the only monolithic group in America that our vote is taken for granted," says Black Trump supporter Vernon Parker of Paradise Valley, Ariz. Parker says he is impressed by President Trump's criminal justice reform efforts and his signing of The Future Act, which made permanent one of the main sources of funding for HBCUs (historically black colleges and universities). He will continue to support the president for listening to Black people, he says. Alaysia Black Hackett, a registered independent voter in Richmond, Va., says achieving better health outcomes for Black families is at the top of her checklist for choosing a candidate."I cannot get with the racism and the inability to speak out against injustices," she says.According to the COVID-19 tracking project at The Boston University Center for Antiracist Research, nationwide, Black people are dying at more than two times the rate of white people. In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Black Hackett says she wants a clear plan from either candidate about how to get better personal protective equipment to Black neighborhoods, and that will greatly influence her ballot on Election Day. Republicans want to cast the race as a choice between two candidates fighting to move the country in vastly different directions. Biden and running mate Kamala Harris, they say, would pursue a far-left agenda bordering on socialism; the Democrats say Trump's administration will stoke racial and other divides, torpedo health care for people who aren't wealthy and otherwise undercut national strength.Oscar Hall, an Indiana retiree of the automotive industry and Black voter who is backing former Vice President Joe Biden says majority Black neighborhoods in the Midwestern Rust Belt were hurting for resources even before the pandemic and that Trump hasn't done enough."They outsourced the ways that (people) could have made money for jobs," he says. In a high-stakes election, the voters all agree that eliminating voter disenfranchisement tactics is important to ensure every vote counts.===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
