Buttigieg grasping for black vote with Trayvon Martin tweet

Mayor Pete Buttigieg does not poll well with African American voters, a demographic the Democratic party covets when it comes time for the American people to cast their vote. Buttigieg, who just might win Iowa, seems to have taken note of how underwhelming he is to people of color and played to that demographic with a tweet yesterday about Trayvon Martin.

“Trayvon Martin would have been 25 today. How many 25th birthdays have been stolen from us by white supremacy, gun violence, prejudice, and fear? #BlackLivesMatter,” he tweeted.

Guess Buttigieg forgot that once upon a time he said all lives matter and that George Zimmerman was Hispanic?

Some African American voters weren’t buying Pete’s tweet.
