Is,nt duh burn cute.

People get to vote no matter what their personal views. If they vote purely on a racial basis that is their decision.
I prefer to cast my vote on how the candidate matches my views as my representative to government. I do not vote commie. Voting purely on race, sex, or sexual preference is purely stupid.

What other reason than racism could there be for not voting for a black, corrupt socialist mayor of the most murderous city in Florida?

The larger question is who is Bernie Sanders and what is his agenda

The Dems need a candidate in 2020 that can reach the white middle-class voter.

They don't have one. Even Biden would be too much.

Any "progressive", especially Sanders would fail.

Did you notice that the Libs won the "localized" House races, yet broke even - or not - in the Senate, a more "nationalized" race? I'm not sure what happened in the Governor arena.

I live in a blue state now. Nevada now has a new Dem Senator, a new Dem governor and a majority blue House.

We're simply outnumbered here now. Too many immigrants, a lot of whom or not all that well off.

This is why I'm planning to move within 10 years. It's been a great place to be the last 30 years, but it's run its course.

People who've lived here as long as I have still can't ennunciate in America. THAT'S what it's turning into.

Maybe it is racism that keeps an idiot like Maxine Waters in office in her mostly black district.

Maxine Waters' congressional district is 2nd blackest in California while she lives in a white district in a $ 4.3 million house. Her constituents keep reelecting her because the is so vicious toward the USA and whites, that is enough to make them happy.

Since there were no "commies" running for office, your decision of who to vote for cannot be what you say it is.

Communist-run countries were all disasters so few people call themselves communists nowadays. However, most members of the Congressional black Caucus would be ideologically comfortable in a Soviet-style communist party, and so would you. Bernie Sanders and the incredibly dumb Alexandria Ocasio Cortez would also like the "socialist" economic system that existed in the Soviet Union.

By the way, the Republican senatorial candidate in Michigan was a very impressive black man, smart, handsome, articulate and a war veteran. Yet he lost. Would Sanders call that racist? I would call Michigan voters stupid. His name is John James, I hope we will hear about him again.

Democratic ticket in Florida for Governor. Gillum/King

Republican ticket in Florida for Governor DeSantis/Nunez

Bernie, when Hispanics see those names, many would reject Gillum.

There is your supposed racism
