Thank you Jess. This was an appropriate response to the comment and I appreciate you both amplifying Black voices. I also agree with your statement about the reason Trump’s 18% of Black votes are being held up as the gold standard instead of the 82% that didn’t vote for Trump.

Also, it would be helpful to listen to a recovering Black Conservative Johnny Silvercloud. He writes quite a bit about the tokenism in the Republican party.

It’s titled the “Conservatives Racial Gaze,” and it has lots of truth to it.
