About Me

I've been a member of DU since the very beginning....after that horrible fiasco - the sElection of 2000. My first user name was Lindsey, then I changed it to Nirvana555, and now it's Upthevibe. I had devices crash and I ended up having to change my user name. I've never been one to make a whole lot of original posts, but I consider myself a very active member in that I come to DU almost every day and read the wonderfully informative threads. I can't imagine what life would have been like over the past two decades without DU!

This morning's Washington Journal ...Thedore Johnson....."Black Voters and Campaign 2020"

I don't know anything about this man. I just woke up early and turned on CSPAN and he was on. He's with The Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law as a Senior Fellow.

Among other things, he was discussing "myths about black voters".

He said that one myth is that black voters won't elect a gay candidate. He said that the lack of support for Buttigieg isn't because of his sexuality and went on to discuss the other reasons that Buttigieg is polling between 0 - 3%. He continued by saying that black voters elected a black gay woman for Mayor of Chicago. He then said that one pastor said "If she had kissed her partner in a black church she probably would've been asked to leave but we supported her anyway because her sexuality doesn't matter to us when it comes to politics." WHAT!!!!!????????? Would the pastor have asked a straight man to leave if he kissed his straight wife?!?!?!?

I tried to call but couldn't get through.

(Go to the 3:30 where he starts talking about Buttigieg until around 4:40)
