The Power of The Black Vote: The Alabama Senate Race

Tuesday the entire country had eyes on Alabama as the race for the Senate between former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court and alleged sexual predator Roy Moore and his opponent former federal prosecutor and US Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama Doug Jones. It is sad to say that this was unfortunately a close race despite the fact that Moore is facing many accusations of being a pedophile as well as spewing hate speech against the Black and LGBTQ communities– and an odd stance against Women’s Suffrage– compared to a man who worked to protect the rights of the citizens of Alabama and also prosecuted the men responsible for killing four innocent little girls in the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing of 1963.
