Since we no longer care about doing the right thing, let's talk about math and black women
I don't know if it's a majority, but a general feeling seems to be emerging that posters at DU don't care about white men wearing black face, because Trump is mad.

So, let's not look at it from the perspective of right and wrong. Let's look at the numbers.

Black women are the single most important Democratic constituency.

By percentage, black women out-out white women 70 percent to 65 percent. They out-vote black men 70 percent to 60 percent.

A higher percentage of black women vote for Democrats (92 percent) than black men do (88 percent). And when the vote really matters, they win the election for us. Doug Jones won 98 percent (!!!!!) of the black female vote against noted pedophile Roy Moore.

If that voting percentage dropped to 60 percent - or inline with black men - we'd be doomed as a party. Virginia wouldn't even be worth talking about. Our dreams in North Carolina would vanish. Pennsylvania? Gone for good.

So, if you personally don't care that someone donned black face in 1984 or that a black female college professor has accused a sitting lt governor of sexual assault, maybe the cynical part of you should think about the people in your party who may care.

Back during the Bush years, I took a very unscientific poll at DU. And basically, we were a group that was around 98 percent white. Because of that, I've always felt that we had a racial blindspot here. And you certainly see that in things like debates over Sanders. Sanders was not the nominee in 2016 because black women voted for Hillary at around an 80 percent clip.

We really need to be aware of who the Democratic Party represents and who its most important constituencies are.

40. Yet, black voters make up 25% of the total vote for Dems.

Dont know why people feel it necessary to say one vote is more important than any other.

No one can win with just 25%

Aren't the remaining 75% just as important?

Should one a man of wisdom meet
who points out faults and gives reproof,
who lays a hidden treasure bare,
with such a sage should one consort.
Consorting so is one enriched
and never in decline.
