I see a white guy in church. Must be election season

As this article in The Wall Street Journal shows, you can always tell when it’s an election year in the black community. Go to a predominantly black church and look for white faces. Chant a few “we shall overcome” slogans and give the obligatory, “I feel your pain and I stand with you” slogans and your in with black voters. Democrats have pulled this stunt for decades and get away with it because its a low cost and effective for getting votes.

The barber’s statements about not knowing anything about the senate candidates and thinking that only the presidential elections matter is indicative of a willingly uninformed electorate. Turning a blind eye to the issues doesn’t benefit the African American community specifically nor the country as a whole.
