The President turned to urban radio stations yesterday to encourage black voters to participate in the midterm elections. Black turnout will be vital to Democrats to help determine control of the senate.  “This isn’t about my feelings being hurt,” Obama told the Rev. Al Sharpton in one of many nationally syndicated interviews he’s conducted the past week. “These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me. I tell them, I said, ‘You do what you need to do to win. I will be responsible for making sure that our voters turn out.’ “It is estimated that 4 in 10 black adults turn out to vote. It should not surprise anyone that black turnout was 6 out of 10 for the last 2 presidential elections.
