Someone please explain to me the infatuation liberals have with black people.
And why is there an assumption that blacks are all in favor of reparations for slavery?
This is virtue signaling to guilt-laden, anxiety-ridden liberals who believe they can easy their collective imaginary guilt by showing their support for 'victims of historic racism'.
There are lots of ignorant, gullible white votes out there.
Because they used to literally support slavery, and fought against getting rid of it, and now they figuratively support slavery by trying to keep blacks on their political plantation.
As to the politics, if you can be assured of 90% of the vote from a group that makes up 12% of the electorate, your job is do whatever you can to increase turnout. Democrats do that by painting republicans as racists, especially if republicans are against giveaways to blacks.
Democrats do the same thing with the LGBT community, which is estimated to be around 4.5% of the US population.
And felons can’t vote.
Blacks make up the Democrat margin of victory. If blacks stayed home, democrats would lose most of their seats.
