Where We Should Draw The Line On Outlawing Trans Bathrooms
It’s an odd sort of punishment to force someone to behave a certain way so you can give them more money.Read More »
I wish the *Atlanta Journal-Constitution would hire some black folks (or DeVine Law Gamecock) to help them find the truthful news; get over their own white guilt; and quit projecting that guilt onto the people of the city this conservative Republican loves. Yes, I am white.
It appears that Kasim Reed (who happens to be black) won the Atlanta mayoral run-off over Mary Norwood (yep, she’s a white gal) by only 700 votes. The AJC has been obsessed with race (and sexual orientation) throughout the campaign, placing voters into cookie-cutter molds based on skin color, including in today’s post election analysis.
Foghorn Leghorn (Responsible for identifying drive-by media fog.) is not happy, so, I wonder if the AJC can follow this logic:
The fact of the matter is that Norwood lost because of her alienation of too many Republican voters when she ran from her GOP past and then trashed the Republican Party and prior participation in it. Not the way to win friends and influence people, except for maybe the over 14% of her voters that were black, and mostly Democrat.
This mayoral race was not about race. It was about the candidates. It was about honesty, leadership and party. Reed even attacked the “mess at City Hall” in his final ads. BTW, the incumbent mayor over the last eight years responsible for City Hall is, you guessed it…Black! Think the AJC just missed that?
And the most honest Democratic Party leader won: Kasim Reed.
We called it here first.
*[FTR, and full disclosure, we love the AJC. Pay for their peoples to deliver the dead-tree version of it to my peoples every day. Kyle Wingfield (who deservedly beat us in a contest for the conservative columnist job) got this right and we miss Jim Wooten.]
