Civil rights and Qanon candidates: the fight for black voters in Georgia | Anywhere but Washington



Joe Biden won the nomination for president on the shoulders of older Black voters in the US south. But how do younger, progressive people of color feel about his candidacy in the southern state of Georgia, in play for the first time in decades? And will a dangerous campaign of Qanon disinformation have any bearing on the outcome of the election? Oliver Laughland and Tom Silverstone try to find out

  1. At the end of the day, The profound division among voters in the U.S. is largely because they lack the sophistication and nuanced understanding of more advanced democracies. It's a high school level process with potentially grave outcomes.

  2. Her statement about how increasing the population by "not aborting your babies like the democrats tell you to" to increase the percentage of votes for Trump doesn't even statistically make sense

  3. If you can't stay in conversation to back up what you say on Twitter, how are your constituents supposed to believe you're going to stay in conversation as a law maker? I really hope that if Angela Stanton King wins her election, that she learns how to work with others and stop taking her cues on how to act from Trump.

  4. Some Americans baffle me. They care so much about abortion and the "killing of a human" but don't seem to care one bit once that foetus comes into the world.

    It's also puzzling how Conservatives are so obsessed with individual liberty but then deny that to the women who need /want abortions.
    I'm sorry to say but it doesn't look like a very intelligent and civilised place.

  5. They don't have public transportation because their state legislators WON'T raise money to bring MARTA out there, expecting MARTA to foot the bill. If they hadn't been so white and racist back in the 80s, opposing MARTA, they could have had it. "White flight" is one of the many stupidities white folks shoot themselves in the foot with!

  6. She was involved in an Auto Theft Ring and got pardoned by Trump. That explains her lack of ability to articulate her policies towards the black community absent " Abortion kills black voters"
