NY Times Writer ‘Stunned’ to See Blacks, Latinos Vote for Trump

November 5, 2020

In a boringly predictable New York Times op-ed the day after the election, race-mongering columnist Charles Blow confesses he is “stunned” at the number of blacks and Latinos who dared step away from the Democrat plantation to vote for President Trump. Naturally, he dismisses this defection as exemplifying “the power of the white patriarchy.”

In “Exit Polls Point to the Power of White Patriarchy,” Blow writes, “[W]hat was shocking to me about the exit polls… [was that a] larger percentage of every racial minority voted for Trump this year than in 2016. Among Blacks and Hispanics, this percentage grew among both men and women, although men were more likely to vote for Trump than women.”

Breitbart News notes that Trump doubled his support among black women to eight percent and spiked his support among black men to 18, or almost one-in-five black men, according to the media coalition’s exit polls.

“I am still stunned,” said Blow. “All of this to me points to the power of the white patriarchy and the coattail it has of those who depend on it or aspire to it. It reaches across gender and sexual orientation and even race. Trump’s brash, privileged chest trumping and alpha-male dismissiveness and in-your-face rudeness are aspirational to some men and appealing to some women. Some people who have historically been oppressed will stand with the oppressors, and will aspire to power by proximity.”

Or, you know, maybe blacks and Latinos saw for themselves that Trump was good for them economically and that he had done more for their communities than Democrat victimhood-promoting had in a half-century.
