Twitter Crowns Black Voters as True Winners of Roy Moore Race

Twitter Crowns Black Voters

Black voters kept Roy Moore out of the Senate, and Twitter thinks they deserve more than a "thanks."

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.
