Welcome to The Jacobs Journal, a blog that will provide readers with a black middle-class perspective on current issues in politics, media, sports and pop culture. With its launch happening during the last few weeks of the 2012 U.S. presidential election cycle, a number of posts will examine the candidates, their proposals to tackle some of our country’s biggest challenges, and how the divisive issue of race is being used to sway segments of the population.
