#REPOST “The appearance of black political clout is deceiving. Despite their gains in participation and representation, blacks continue to fare worse than whites in converting their policy preferences into law.” For all the reasons mentioned in my previous post. And will continue to be the case as long as the end game in black politics is ‘negros sitting next to whiteness’ and ‘negros sitting next to the negro sitting next to whiteness’ instead of weaponizing our politics. And building our own systems & institutions that will allow us to push back.
The False Promise of Black Political Representation
The more white voters support a policy, the more likely it is to be enacted. The more black voters support a policy, the less likely it is to be achieved.
