Georgia’s Stacey Abrams, a failed gubernatorial candidate, is trying something new in American politics: with naked ambition, she’s simultaneously begging for and demanding the vice president’s spot on the Democrat Party ticket.
The media are dutifully playing along, trying to puff her as something other than a local politician who believes that her race and sex cards are a handful of aces. However, in the Washington Post’s laughably reverent paean to Abrams, there’s a peculiar slip revealing what leftists actually think of African-Americans — and it’s all the more aberrant, given that the author is himself an African-American.
In some ways, Stacey Abrams is a laudable woman. One of six children, she grew up in an intact family and excelled in school, eventually earning both a Master of Public Affairs and a law degree.
