Support Black Women

You've probably seen the graphic going around that shows the huge disparity between black and white voters in Alabama for yesterday's senate race. And if you haven't, what are you even doing?

Black individuals carried the Democrats last night, with black women pulling in the biggest majority for Doug Jones. My fellow white people (at least those who are opposed to having a child molester in the Senate) were grateful, and black women have some ideas about what we can do with that gratitude.

You know what you need to do, fellow white people. If you're grateful, show it.
