For John, BLUF: I believe Ms Graham has misread the situation, and her solution is not a good one. Nothing to see here; just move along.
BROTHERS, WE NEED to talk.
Misandry—dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against men (i.e., the male sex): her brand of feminism is just poorly disguised misandry
From The Boston Globe, by Columnist Renée Graham, 8 November2018.
Here is the lede plus five:
In the midterm elections, about 17 percent of black men voted to give Texas Republican Ted Cruz another term in the Senate. Around 11 percent supported Georgia gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp, even though he did his best, as the Republican secretary of state, to disenfranchise more than a million voters, the majority of them African-American.It seems to me that if you want to see change in politics you have to be willing to spread some votes around. If all the votes are bound to one side, then the other side has no motivation to seek out those votes. No motivation to change its platform, its approach to legislating, since there is no reward in that for them.
So, here’s my request: Black men, vote like black women.
On the other hand, if Black men, as a group, see some benefit from Republican Party policies, they can encourage those policies by voting Republican. As a famous Republican once said, "What do you have to lose?"
