“Look at the man who’s talking to you, Peter!”
“Stop Lying! Stop lying!”
“It’s not a joke, Pete!”
“Answer The Question!”

“SOUTH BEND, Ind. — It has been one of the biggest challenges for Pete Buttigieg since he began his improbable presidential campaign in January: Could the Harvard-educated mayor of South Bend, who often comes across like the brainy technocrat he once was as a McKinsey & Company consultant, build a following among black voters, one of the Democratic Party’s most vital constituencies?
Early signs were worrisome. Few African-Americans showed up at his campaign events, even in predominantly black areas of key primary states like South Carolina. His poll numbers among black voters were low to nonexistent. And he was shadowed by criticism from some black residents of South Bend about his firing of the city’s first black police chief and his handling of economic and housing issues.
But Mr. Buttigieg’s troubles intensified into a crisis on Sunday as he faced pointed questions and angry jeers from some African-American residents of South Bend at a packed town-hall-style meeting that he held in his latest attempt to respond to the fatal police shooting last week of Eric J. Logan, a 54-year-old black man. …”
Mayor Pete promised them several months ago that he would never say All Lives Matter again. Now his presidential campaign is being devoured by them. He just sits there and takes it and looks weak. Meanwhile, Yang is jumping off the stage into cheering throngs of supporters.
