As we get closer to Election Day, both parties are doing everything they can to be an active presence in the Black Community. Democrats believe Kamala Harris, the first major-party Black Vice-Presidential candidate in U.S. history, will rally the Black vote, more specifically Black Women. While Trump is betting on the vote of working class Black Men.
According to Gallup, The Democratic candidate for president over the five presidential elections since 2000 has averaged 91% of the Black vote, with 8% on average going to the Republican candidate. Black voters are multidimensional, and we should not be treated as a monolith.
Journalists Lydia Polgreen, Kristin Myers, Marquise Francis and Phil Lewis debunk the myth that all black people share the same perspective and only care about issues that affect their race.
