Nobody Should Be Surprised By This

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell is drawing criticism for comments he made shortly before the GOP blocked a federal elections bill, when he said that “African American” voters cast ballots at similar rates to “Americans.”

That's just standard WASP bullshit that has been going on since 1619. Mad Magazine nailed it over fifty years ago:

He was probably referring to "Americans" as a polling category, but the slimy son of a bitch knew exactly what he was saying. And what he was saying was wrong. And the statistics he cited are worse than useless, as they apply to the previous election before the goddamn Republicans passed restrictive voting laws in 19 states and counting. But he wants to pretend that isn't happening, at least if you go by what he has said about it. Trae Crowder has him exactly right:

It's a sad day when in our youth we got our civics reality lessoning from a satire mag and now get the straight-shit political reality from nightly satire shows...which now have their material written for them, without conscious irony, by the Right....so much material that they have to pick and choose...and we laugh while crying inside.
Meanwhile the Right gets moonbeams and meadow muffins from its 'fair and balanced' propaganda and conspiracy fantasy network.
We laugh and cry, they stew and fear and hate....as the Right extends the darkness of the South's economic, moral and cultural poverty to the nation at large.
