As the 2020 Democratic Party primary race turns into a race to the “progressive” bottom, a failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate and potential presidential candidate is blaming her lack of popularity on racism.
“I don’t think that success is zero-sum, so I don’t want to disparage or take away from the reaction – the legitimate response people had to [Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke’s] campaign, but I do wan’t to call the question,” Stacey Abrams said on MSNBC Friday.
“I think race plays a part, I think, uh, region plays a part, and I also think phenotype plays a part,” she continued.
MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell did not challenge Abrams on her assertion.
Abrams has always been bitter at her lack of success in national politics, and refused to concede that she lost Georgia’s 2018 gubernatorial race to Republican Gov. Brian Kemp. She hired a team of more than 30 lawyers to challenge her loss, and even called for an unprecedented do-over in the form of a revote.
On the other hand, prominent members of the Democratic Party have been recently been outed as racists. Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam of Virginia was not only exposed for dressing in blackface or a KKK robe, but he survived the scandal by embarking upon an “apology tour.”
Maybe Abrams is right about the Democratic Party’s racism.
