African-American Candidates Polling at 1 Percent in Iowa

One day, black Democrats will wake up and say, "We've been had." For a half century, African Americans have been giving Democrats a huge majority of their votes in national elections--91 percent for Hillary in 2016, 90 percent in the 2018 Congressional contests--and in return Democratic kingmakers have not seen fit to take a single presidential candidate of African American heritage seriously.

1. You know, the Democrats as long ago as 2008 had a chance to nab two birds with one stone,

if they'd selected former congresswoman Cynthia McKinney of Georgia as their presidential candidate.

A two-fer; a woman and a black.

Why they did't jump at the opportunity still escapes me.
