Several Republicans emailed me, asking if I knew Council because they “never heard of her.” Neither have I but as a conservative recently said of me I’m “just a black blogger anyway.”
When you do an Internet search of Amani Council’s name, lots of information pops up about her real estate career but little else. The article on Council published in the Branch Avenue in Bloom newsletter mentioned Council became a realtor “as a result of wanting a career change.” Is Council now working at the RNC to dabble in minority outreach? The better question is whether the RNC is serious about building a meaningful relationship with blacks or just marketing a billboard of tomfoolery to black voters?
