Brace yourselves for this powerful WaPo “analysis” from Vanessa Williams:
What’s up with all those black men who voted for the Republican in the Georgia governor’s race? https://t.co/t82eQ9yxDv

It’s starts off with the typical white-women-shaming crap we’ve seen:
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.
And then it takes a really fun turn:
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,” [Ted Johnson, a senior fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice] 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.”
The notion that there are black men out there who believe in “the conservative messages of rugged individualism and free-market economics” is apparently so mind-bendingly alarming to woke liberals that it merits a full-blown analysis to try to make sense of it all.
Yeah, what’s up with all those black guys thinking for themselves?! https://t.co/vAftgCkL9T

What’s say we stop trying to analyze the racial breakdown of the electorate and just judge people on the content of their character instead?
Thinking that the color of your skin should dictate how you vote looks like a pretty good definition of racism to me…

Calling people race traitors is an excellent way to get them to vote for you. https://t.co/zTDC0Hqo05
