Let me share with you an excerpt of an email I received last night from Democracyforamerica.com:
BREAKING: Doug Jones just defeated alleged child molester, open white supremacist, and Donald Trump ally Roy Moore in Alabama!
Make no mistake, this is a victory for the 50 state strategy, and it’s a victory led by the new American majority. Black, brown, and millennial voters — and Black women in particular — turned out in historic numbers to send a Democratic candidate to the Senate from Alabama for the first time since 1992.
Did you get that part? When Black voters–particularly Black women voters–show up to vote, the tide turns in favor of right. Let that sink in, my Sisters and Brothers.
Black Men: 92%
Black Women: 97% (1% more than Hillary Clinton last year!)
WE MATTER AT THE POLLS. Some of us may be hopelessly stuck on stupid *cough* Omarosa!, but don’t let anyone try to convince you otherwise. Show up. Vote. Watch what the God I serve can do.
I think I feel my hope coming back.
