ATLANTA — Are Black mayors disingenuously masking their Blackness? Political Correspondent Charles Ellison seems to think so.

In an opinion article in The Atlanta Post, Ellison postulates a political thread among Black mayors in which they focus more on solidarity and wholeness to appease their white constituents, as opposed to focusing on economic and education issues.

An Excerpt Reads:

Suddenly, black mayor is more like cultural therapist in cardigan mending to racially wounded city on the couch.  But, when is the business of the city getting done?  Are you knuckling up and making deals to balance budgets, repair crumbling schools and find jobs for the unemployed? Or are you caught up in a tiresome, fake replay of Invictus?  Here, Morgan Freeman’s grand portrayal of post-apartheid South African President Nelson Mandela is knee-capped by catering to bruised white feelings.  Hence, the movie shows him spending more time on ensuring rugby World Cup championship than on the country’s alarming poverty crisis and skyrocketing AIDS rates.  In the case of these three cities, recovery is still unseen by many of their black residents.  They might be more interested in what these three men can do about that.
