Republicans are certainly doing a bang-up job recruiting the black vote in red states like Mississippi ahead of 2016, you know. Get them to talk about a common subject like education funding, and they’ll find a way to relate to the average black voter.
State Rep. Gene Alday, R-Walls, doesn’t believe any more funding is needed. “I don’t see any schools hurting,” he said.
But then he went on to say that Mississippi “has a lot of bad school districts. The people are electing superintendents that don’t know anything about education.”
The former mayor of Walls (population 1,248) went on to say, “I come from a town where all the blacks are getting food stamps and what I call ‘welfare crazy checks.’ They don’t work.”
He had to go to the emergency room for pain, he said. “I liked to died. I laid in there for hours because they (blacks) were in there being treated for gunshots.”
Feel the outreach, baby! Man, I just want to go vote for these guys right now.
Why, I can’t imagine why the party of Lincoln has an image problem among black voters.
