4. What is this bullshit about how black votes are earned in an utterly different way to white votes?

 

There's no damn difference between a white person and a black person. Why exactly would it require 'years. Decades even' for a black person to hear a message and make a decision based on whether it benefits their future?

I'll gladly concede that there's a huge trust issue in many black communities based on how many times they've been used and lied to by white politicians, but that doesn't make 'black votes' some single item that magically behaves differently to 'white votes'.

Sorry, but this kind of language really pisses me off.
