Proof there is no singular issue that will gain all the support of African-American voters, two very influential blacks show disparate views on politics. During a visit to the set of Scandal by Democratic frontrunner, Hillary Clinton, Kerry Washington Instagramed a pic with #ImWithHer, showing support for the former Secretary of State.

Ben Carson, the one-time frontrunner in the GOP race to the nomination, who is now in dead last, gave an interview in which he stated President Obama was “raised white.” The implication being he couldn’t possibly understand the struggle of everyday black Americans.

Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders who has struggled to gain endorsements from influential black political leaders or entertainers, scored one such endorsement from film director, Spike Lee. Like every culture or race, there is no defining issue that speaks to everyone in that group. But it’ll be interesting to see who can get the lion’s share of a vote that proved so influential to Obama’s wins.
