Yes…these were thoughts percolating in my mind as well, but I could not articulate them as clearly as this. Democrats work hard to get blacks to vote in elections — and then that’s it. That’s where much of the outreach ends. You can’t do that! (And only that) and expect us to keep coming back. With that said, I have voted in every single presidential election, always for democrats. But I don’t know if I’d continue to do so if I was as disenfranchised as a lot of black people in this country have become.
