xposted from GD at the request of 1SBM.

1SBM pointed me out to this today; I figured it'd be salient information. And for the record, the aforementioned Democratic African-American Women's Caucus? Wasn't founded till this year. We're essentially looking at another Goodman-esque figure here.

~VP


"The other day someone posted an OP concerned that Black folks in Florida weren't getting behind HRC. I didn't pay much attention to it at the time; but, this morning NPR did an interview with Leslie Wimes, the President of the Democratic African-American Women’s Caucus, the group the OP was citing to.

Ms. Wimes was saying that HRC wasn't really during any work in the Black community to get Black votes, especially given her past rhetoric (and a bunch of other stuff that sounded ... well ... "familiar". She was going on about how HRC's presence in the Black community was limited to TV.

I was like okay ... I disagree; but, okay. I'm not in Florida. Then she said the weirdest thing ... she said the HRC had, actually, reached out to her to work with her on door knocking!?!

I, literally, said "WTF! ... You criticize her campaign for not having a physical presence in the community, then acknowledge that her campaign sought to work with you ... and you (apparently)turned them down ... because her campaign didn't have a physical presence in the Black community!?!" Again, WTF! Isn't that more of an indictment of you and your organization? Well, guess what? Don't believe the F'ing hype!

I Googled "Leslie Wimes" and imagine my surprise at what the first hit was:

Just another BoBer, throwing a tantrum... working hard to elect Trump."

2. I'm in Florida

and I can tell you that there are a lot of black people out just in my county for Hillary. The black churches are especially active in working for her. It would seem that BoB's are doing what they do best... whining.

The thing that's important is that African Americans worked too hard getting the vote to just let this election slide by. They're far too smart.

8. Same, man. We keep losing our strongest voices, and whatever admin team we have here just

doesn't seem to give a rats ass-- but he lampshaded that, when I chatted with him. "Willing to talk about race till it makes them uncomfortable, and then they silence you"; my paraphrasing there so it may not be the most accurate.
