The polls show America divided over the equally charismatic Yamaoka and Grant's ideas. But on a deeper, emotional level, the White swing vote is beginning to hesitate now that it looks like a minority candidate is no longer a protest vote and really could become president. Takashi realizes to his horror that in their most Machiavellian scheme yet, Yamaoka and his closest friend, McCoy, have put the story out that the senator is refusing to wear body armor despite death threats.
Convinced that it's all for the good of America, Yamaoka and McCoy are secretly funneling money to those very hate groups in order to provoke incidents that will shame and repulse certain white voters into supporting the senator!
