Every election season, there are issues and topics that are bound to come up. The state of the economy, Democrats accusing Republicans of threatening women’s healthcare (abortion on demand) and that conservatives are total and complete racists, who all wear white hoods in their free time.
Needless to say liberals love identity politics. Why wouldn’t they? It helps get them votes. Hillary Clinton’s entire campaign was based on the fact that she was a woman and that any female who didn’t vote for her was betraying their gender.
Don’t believe me? The “I’m with Her” candidate said it herself.
Another big voting bloc for the Democratic Party is African-Americans. It’s just generally assumed, at least for Democrats, that black people will and should be Democrats. Why, because, according to Democrats, Republicans and conservatives are evil, vile and are certainly racist people.
So, any time some breaks out of this mold, this thinking that women are supposed to vote and think one way or that African-Americans are supposed to vote a particular way, it upsets things a tad, to say the least.
Don’t believe me? Take a look at all the nice things liberals are saying to Chance the Rapper about this tweet.
Black people don’t have to be democrats.

but also imagine being black and supporting a group of individuals who have continuously invalidated black people though…. just a thought. pic.twitter.com/lRsHLCekv2

But explain to me why any person of color would stand by the GOP or Trump now? It’s a war zone out here for them… I’m white WITH privilege and i jumped ship as fast as i could.
I’m asking seriously – why?

See, thinking outside the box is not generally welcomed by loving, accepting liberals. It just takes a simple tweet to set them off.
