Af-Am Group: Do black voters not understand the dangers of Trump?

There are some on DU that seems to think we don't even though we voted against the guy (88%-8%) at a higher percentage than the WWC voters that we keep being asked to pander to. And this is in spite of rampant voter suppression and a multitude of reasons, centuries one might say, to question Democratic commitment to black causes.

I'm asking for a friend.

1. people don't want to call out their own group and instead demand black people do it all

for them.

2. Some days I imagine a world where voter suppression is talked about as much as...

pandering to WWC.

9. Black women certainly did

http://www.essence.com/news/politics/most-black-women-voted-for-hillary-clinton

To the tune of 94% of us voting for her in the 2016 GE..

We need to secure the vote. If every single one of us can vote AND have our voted counted accurately . . . We win.

10. But that was just because we all got together three nights before the election and collectively

decided we weren't going to support Captain Comb-over!11

That's the ONLY reason 94% of black women didn't vote for him. It has nothing to do with us knowing down to our very souls how ill-equipped, unprepared, uninformed, dangerous, megalomaniacal and just plain stupid the man was.

12. and nobody pandered to them either

and if you think Clinton supporting the mothers of innocent black kids is pandering then you having some fucked up views. because would they say supporting the parents of sandy hook kids is pandering ?

whenever someone brings up the white men are abandoned because of nafta crap i mention if they care about nafta why didn't they vote for feingold. usually they ignore it but if they respond they say negative attacks hurt him.

but negative attacks did not stop over 90 percent of black women from voting for feingold. but only 30 percent of white men did and they voted FOR the pro free trade idiot.

and the over 90 percent of black women includes all education levels , income levels etc.

that's why i'm tired of the excuses.

you see black women speak out against people like nina turner and call bs . but white men refuse to do so with other white men.

and we see it resulted in that white on white crime with the congressional baseball shooting. but of course they wont refer to it as such .
