In recent years, Bloomberg has used some of his vast personal fortune to push for stronger gun safety laws and action on climate change.
Democratic presidential candidate Mayor Michael Bloomberg is delivering a pitch to African-American voters in the nation's heartland. Both in the city's Greenwood District, the site of the "Black Wall Street" Massacre almost 100 years ago that left hundreds dead and the city's thriving African-American community in rubble.
Campaign spokeswoman Galia Slayen declined to comment.
Bloomberg's economic plan, called "the Greenwood Initiative", seeks to invest $70 billion over 10 years in 100 of the mostly non-white communities affected the worst by both economic and racial discrimination. More than 200 blacks were killed, 800 injured in the attack and more than 6,000 black residents were arrested and detained.

Barty roars back to make winning start in Melbourne
The 23-year-old reached the quarterfinals in Melbourne 12 months ago, losing out to Petra Kvitova in a high-quality encounter. She returned to the court a different player.
Much of the plan is designed off of job by Geoffrey Canada, a widely known area leader in NY, according to a project assistant.
During the announcement, Bloomberg said that black exploitation through slavery, sharecropping, Jim Crow, segregation, redlining and more, worked exactly as intended - resulting in the average African American family owning just one-tenth of the wealth of the average white family in America.
"For hundreds of years, America systematically stole black lives, black freedom, and black labor". "It might actually be a shorter course", than current plans in California, he said.
Bloomberg's document on race, however, has actually been shadowed by his enforcement of "stop and frisk", a kind of hostile policing that enabled- as well as some claim urged- police officers to apprehend an individual on practically any kind of kind of unclear uncertainty, search that person without a warrant as well as jail the individual if any kind of kind of unlawful compound or tool was discovered.
One possible reason Bloomberg, 77, has struggled with black voters is his past support as NY mayor for a policing policy known as "stop and frisk". The former Republican apologized for the policy only a few days before announcing his candidacy in November. Critics have questioned the timing and sincerity of that apology.
