Black voters in Alabama were characterized as unmotivated by nearly every media establishment. And yet they made tonight a reality in overwhelming numbers.
They beat a man who proclaimed slavery equated to a better America and who Steve Bannon proudly endorsed.
They came out in droves for a civil rights activist who faught against the KKK.
They were a loud voice against the all too normalized culture that exists around pedophilia and disgusting and sinful perversion.
They took a giant step in the right direction for gay rights and equality.
I know to the outside world this was supposed to be a slam dunk, but this is a region of the country who made candidate and President Trump a reality. A Democrat hasn’t won the deep South in 25 years.
Christ. Selma, Alabama. They made history yet again. Please let this be a sign of things to come. Please.
