WaPo Faces Backlash Over Criticism of Black Males who Voted Republican in Georgia’s Governor Race

WaPo Analysis Column: “What’s up with all those black men who voted for the Republican in the Georgia governor’s race?”

The Washington Post is facing backlash over its “analysis” piece entitled “What’s up with all those black men who voted for the Republican in the Georgia governor’s race?”.

The article begins with the obligatory attack on white women, but we aren’t the “real” target this time.  Instead, the author is enraged that between 8% and 11% of black men voted for Democrat Stacey Abrams’ opponent, Republican Brian Kemp.

White female voters in Georgia showed little interest in helping black women fulfill their dream of electing Stacey Abrams as governor, which would have made her the first African American woman to head a state in the nation’s history.

Seventy-five percent of white women voted for Republican Brian Kemp, who was declared the winner late last week, more than 10 days after disputes over absentee and provisional ballots.

. . . . But another group of voters also raised eyebrows for how they voted in the race, in which Abrams fell about 17,000 votes short of forcing a runoff with Kemp.

Black men voted for Kemp at a higher rate than black women, according to exit polling, a data point that drew gasps and rebuke on social media and news commentary.

According to network exit polling provided by CNN, 11 percent of black men voted for Kemp; the Associated Press’s VoteCast reported 8 percent.

Those numbers are reminiscent of the double-digit level of support that Donald Trump got among black men in the 2016 presidential election. Trump endorsed Kemp, which helped him win a runoff primary contest in July, and he traveled to Georgia to stump for Kemp two days before the Nov. 6 election.

The problem, apparently, is not that black men are sexist; instead, the outrage appears to be that they are likely to be socially and/or fiscally conservative and buy into the right’s crazy notion of self-determination and free market capitalism.  The horror.

The article continues:

Sexism was probably not a major factor in black men supporting Abrams at a lower rate, [Ted Johnson, a senior fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice] said. He cited a paper published earlier this year that looked at how gender stereotypes affected black and white voters’ behavior in the 2016 presidential election.

. . . .  Black men who voted for Kemp were not so much rejecting Abrams as embracing the conservative messages of rugged individualism and free-market economics.

“I think it boils down to — the conservative mantra of self-determination and economic empowerment resonates with men, period, but especially with a certain cohort of black men,” Johnson said. “Like the brothers that are hustling CD to the brothers that open barbershops, that entrepreneurial spirit is alive in the black community.”

He said those voters believe that the GOP talking point of “getting government out of the way and letting people determine their own economic path. That sounds good to black men, and it’s a mantra they can support rather than having the government say we’re gonna help you to be a man.”

. . . .  Johnson said there are a lot of black people who “may be social conservatives or fiscal conservatives but are liberal on the issue of civil rights and race.”

“To be a racial conservative means you’re okay with Jim Crow,” he added. “There’s only one party that you can support and be progressive on race, and that’s the Democratic Party.”

This is why the Democrats work so hard to paint the right as racists; fear and hate are the only things they have to offer racial minorities who otherwise reject their increasingly anti-American, anti-capitalist socialist platform.

A fact not lost on Candace Owens, who recently launched #Blexit, and her Twitter followers.

Man, those must be some uppity brothers if they think they know how to vote all by themselves; the WaPo will get them straight.

18% of black women voted for DiSantis….and never told anyone they were going to. Why? Mothers of young children, particularly middle class black mothers want school choice.

Shorter WaPo; we’ll tell those ignorant chillun how to vote!

To be fair this would be fully accepted as an “analysis” piece and be well-graded in today’s academe. Journalism, social “science”, and all the liberal arts are essentially focused on opinion crafting and activism. Start with a preferred premise, and use correct grammar and paragraph construction to flimsily support your thoughts.

Just based on the attack smear campaign Abrams waged she turned a lot of potential voters away from voting for her.

But who really wants a governor that can’t pay the $46k in taxes she owes but can pay the $4200 qualifying fee to run for governor.

I wonder why Oprah, who was so sure Abrams was just right for people in a state all the way across the country from where she lives didn’t just pay the back taxes. After all Oprah likes playing lady of the manor while doling out the largess and $46,000 is pocket change to her.

Or would that be considered a campaign donation?

    I can’t remember the details, but there is a special section in the code about being able to pay another individual’s taxes. It can be done.

90 percent of the Brothers ain’t ENOUGH?! Damn!

The Washington Post is just modernizing the old phrase “They don’t know their place!”

Somebody’s head just isn’t screwed on right.

it’s a mantra they can support rather than having the government say we’re gonna help you to be a man

Government can’t help anyone be a man. It can, however, deceive a man into thinking that there are virtues to being a slave.

    “Government can’t help anyone be a man. It can, however, deceive a man into thinking that there are virtues to being a slave.”

    That is a keeper.

Rabid diversity (i.e. color judgments including racism) is following a progressive slope to political incongruence. That said, we are on the right path to place character, before color.

Shorter totalitarian leftist:

“I have determined you have ovaries and/or are some sort of protected minority. Therefore I now WILL instruct you how you must vote. You must vote in accordance with your designate identity group. Black men, you must vote per your skin color. Dammit, we gave you a black candidate! Vote accordingly or you are a race traitor. Only straight white men and non-protected minority groups (i.e. Asians) have the ‘privilege’ to vote their minds.

Get back on the plantation you treasonous bastard. We determine what’s in your best interest, not you.

Get with the program,
Your overlords”

Imagine for one moment that Professor Jacobs wrote that headline and the msm outrage that would follow! It appears that only conservatives have imagination!

Any backlash for something like that should feel good. Yet, I’m not relieved because, how do we reach a point where there’s an obligatory attack on white women? Ah well.

I just try not to be outraged by everything, realizing there’s a lot of media out there trying to fuel that. I’ve been getting an itch to just break out Aesop’s Fables or something to change pace.

Vanessa Williams, an African-American reporter at the national desk of the Washington Post , said in a post-election analysis, “White female voters in Georgia showed little interest in helping black women fulfill their dream of electing Stacey Abrams as governor, which would have made her the first African American woman to head a state in the nation’s history….Black men voted for (Republican Brian) Kemp at a higher rate than black women….” (“What’s up with all those black men who voted for the Republican in the Georgia Governor’s race?”, Nov. 23, 2018)

Do the Post and Ms. Williams not remember that Oprah, after being courted by the two principal aspirants for the Democratic presidential nomination, endorsed the black candidate, Barack Obama, not the female Hillary Clinton? In other words, a black female celebrity billionaire voter showed little interest helping females fulfill their dream of electing a woman. Probably not.

In the minds of people such as Ms. Williams and many others, race trumps sex.

Here is another headline : What’s up with all these black people in Michigan voting for a rich white woman instead of a black man?

If you buy on Amazon.com, you support the Amazon Post.

Don’t.

White female voters in Georgia showed little interest in helping black women fulfill their dream of electing Stacey Abrams as governor”

If that is their dream, somebody should wake them up.

Does anyone else find this new pop-up window annoying?

So… where are the frantic demands from the Lefty outrage mob for the author of this racist WaPo article, Vanessa Williams, to resign or be fired?

Why do Leftists get a pass on their blatant bigotry and racism, yet some backwater knuckle dragger must resign as dog catcher for emailing a water mellon joke, or an MFM talking head must be humiliated and fired for politely discussing blackface??

This is why I don’t care about charges of racism from Lefties. I just don’t care about water mellons, or ‘N’ word ‘hate’ crimes, or primetime faux pas.

God bless all who love free people, free markets, and free thinkers.

As I read this, and other news of the week, it is clear that the current Democrat party, with it’s corruptocrats (voted in by egg-headed virtue signalers and half-wits who create the laugh track for the State sponsored late-night court-jester comedy shows) will be eaten alive by both the Marxists and the Islamists in the next primary. The Islamists will eventually leverage Marxist wins to their advantage and become the clear winner within the next generation.

Don’t believe me? The left was SILENT about the Female Genital Mutilation issue. It was the pivotal sign of weakness. They are reduced to screaming “racist” and mounting personal and physical attacks without shame. The liberals are just thugs now. Their once lofty ideals are just delusions of their glory days.

Back on the plantation!

I understand that if the GOP flips a bit over 10% of the black vote, it wins.
