Forget Gwen and the men.
It’s Andrew and the Colonizers!
I’m sure everyone has seen “Black Panther,” the 10th highest-grossing movie of all time.
That’s right! With Andrew Gillum being the only African-American in the Democratic Primary, and black voters making up a quarter of the voters, the path to victory for Gillum has gotten wider with the entrance of Jeff Greene.
The more ConservaDems in the primary, fighting over who gets the Republican-lite and moderate Dem votes, the better.
Where is Patrick Murphy? We want him in this race, too!
You see, Graham, Levine, Greene, and Murphy -- if he gets in -- aren’t going to take votes away from Gillum.
They will fight each other over the same crop of voters. Ones who weren’t planning on voting for Gillum anyway. Gillum’s voters, and we know who they are, aren’t voting for the ConservaDem Crew anyway.
Three, maybe four ConservaDems. One African-American progressive?
I don’t care that Levine said he’s leading the African-American voting bloc by 8 points (snicker!).
Everyone thought it was cute that Graham played the woman card.
Notwithstanding the fact that 53 percent of white women voted for Donald Trump even after Hillary Clinton played Spades, Bid Whist, Uno, and Go Fish, using her gender, black women will “Wakanda the Vote.”
How cute is it now that the Black Panther movie theme is going to be our rally cry to the polls?
I believe black women, and men for that matter, will be screaming “Wakanda Forever” for Andrew Gillum!
Come on T’Challa, show them who you are.
I love it!
