There has been tons of talk about white women supporting sexist, hateful white men like Roy Moore in Alabama and Donald Trump while Black women save elections. However, this shouldn’t be a shocker, white women did not vote for Obama at a majority in both of the presidential elections. In addition, 52 percent of white women voted for Donald “Grab ’em by the Pussy” Trump in 2016, even with a white woman candidate on the ballot. And so it followed that in the midterm elections on Tuesday, white women voted Republican at a majority in Texas, Georgia and of course Florida.
Therefore, video footage of white women harassing a Gillum supporter on Friday should be no shocker.
In the two videos below, two racist women claimed a Black voter, who appears to be the one filming them, only voted for Gillum because he’s Black and “identity politics.” While hollering, they bond over their bigotry and start chanting “count our vote” in a stereotypical accent. One of them adds, “Go back to Africa!”
Hopefully, social media will do their magical job and expose these racists. In addition, we are hoping all the votes will be counted. DeSantis’s “victory” margin has shrunken to 0.47 percentage points, according to The New York Times, . If it stays that was or decreases, there will be a recount.
Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes was reportedly sued by Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s senate campaign and the National Republican Senatorial Committee for “incompetence” because she has not announced how many votes are left to count. If you haven’t already guessed, Broward County is predominately Democratic.
Clearly, the Republicans are afraid of every vote being counted.
