Twitter Crowns Black Voters as True Winners of Roy Moore Race

Twitter Crowns Black Voters

Doug Jones defeated Republican candidate (and accused pedophile) Roy Moore in a historic race for Jeff Sessions's former Alabama seat in the Senate. Jones's victory is not just one for Democrats, but the state's dignity — and according to polling data, black voters saved the day.

 

 

Twitter has taken note of how African-American voters overwhelmingly supported Jones in the race, unlike white voters, who stood by Moore while he faced sexual assault allegations.

 

 

The polls have unleashed a valuable discussion on the role of black voters in American politics, and how they deserve more power in government rather than a "thank you" on Twitter.
