Liberal, Black Media Also Pile On

WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 01: (L-R) Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) (L), Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) stand with fellow lawmakers as they listen to U.S. President Joe Biden's State of the Union address in the U.S. Capitol's House Chamber March 01, 2022 in Washington, DC. During his first State of the Union address Biden is expected to highlight his administration's efforts to lead a global response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, work to curb inflation and to bring the country out of the COVID-19 pandemic.

At a glance

  • MSNBC’s Ja’han Jones also calls Byron Donalds a prop in the usual code language against black Republicans.
  • Republicans love highlighting the fact that many Black people were aligned with the GOP more than a century ago, largely stemming from the party’s alignment with the Union during the Civil War. It’s a word game they play, hoping Black folks will be dumb enough to mistake today’s overtly racist Republican Party with the Civil War-era Republican Party that helped end slavery … because they share the same name.
