Black panderers: Trump & Biden’s fight for African American vote is a grotesque pantomime of caring

Democrats and Republicans have decided they need to take a hefty share of the black vote in order to win November’s election. But both parties prefer shameless pandering to treating black voters like thinking human beings.

The Republican Party has once again been accused of trying to trick black people into voting for President Donald Trump, as the Washington Post highlighted the takedown of a network of apparent bot accounts posing as black Trump supporters on Tuesday.

Glossing over the absence of any overt link to the GOP among the fake accounts, the Post harked back to the Republican convention, which “prominently featured African Americans,” and declared any and all Republican outreach to black voters to be a mere distraction from Trump’s supposed racism. The offensively sloppy “digital blackface” Twitter network is just the sort of behavior one might expect from those devious Republicans, the Post implied.

While its aim appeared to be reinforcing the GOP’s image as a group of racist old white men, the outlet was actually exposing its own biased hand by implying black voters were dumb enough to be taken in by a bot network whose user pics included, in one case, the words “black man photo” instead of an actual person and whose content was borderline illiterate.
