Black MSNBC political analyst claims Democrat Iowa caucuses ‘perfect example of systemic racism’

Obama won Iowa in 2008 and Cruz in 2016 so there's that

By Jon Dougherty

(TNS) During a discussion about why the number of Iowa Democratic caucus voters dropped by nearly double digits this year as compared to 2016, MSNBC political analyst Zerlina Maxwell claimed it was proof of “systemic racism” because nearly all residents in the state are white.



In 2016, 44 percent of caucus participants for Democrats were first-time voters, as compared to just 35 percent this year. Asked to explain that drop if disdain for President Donald Trump on the Left is supposed to be such a motivator, Maxwell agreed that it should concern Democrats “but for a different reason” than many.

“Maybe I’ll be the only person to say this today. The Iowa caucus is essentially the perfect example of systemic racism. Ninety-one percent of the voters in Iowa are white,” she said.

“The reason why you see a drop in turnout, I’m just speculating here, it could be perhaps that white children are not in the cages,” she said, alluding to the long-time Democrat talking point arguing against President Trump’s strict immigration enforcement policies — though ‘kids in cages’ was first publicized by CNN during the Obama administration.

“So when you’re talking about the tangible pain that black and brown people are feeling, they feel a sense of urgency because their kids are being put in cages, right?” Maxwell continued.

“So if you have 91 percent white electorate, that sense of urgency may not be reflected in the turnout numbers,” she continued. “I’m not saying that’s the reason for this. It could be a factor.”

Critics pointed out that President Obama won Iowa in 2008 and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who is Hispanic, won the GOP caucus in 2016.

Seems like anytime the left cannot explain their own failures they manage to play the “racism” card. It makes them look really dumb… “I couldn’t help it! The devil made me do it!”

For them, their “rights” are always more important than their responsibilities.

msnbc only hires token nigots, homosexuals, and lesbians. Never seen one black commentator worth a damn. Men like Sherrif Clarke need to be guests, and shake things up in that clownhead factory.

Better to have intelligent people of color speak once in a while. Too many fruits and nuts.

what an ignorant, miserable, lowlife excuse to explain the fact that nobody has any faith in your own insane candidates – typical democrat rule book………” when exposed as the clueless, entitled, boring, selfish greedy cretins that democrats are PLAY THE RACE CARD”………. the only racists on earth are the ones who never stop talking about………the rest of us get on with our lives and the only time we EVER hear about race is when leftists are screaming about it…..as a prop

Since NY, Ca, some other states, have over representation of minorities, they are examples of racism.

SO let me get this straight, black democrat msnbc reporter is mad at the democrats for systemic racism, but they called Dr Ben Carson an Uncle Tom for running as a republican. The democrats have done nothing for blacks for 70 years, yet think giving some welfare will keep them compliant and voting democrat.

Now I understand what it is to see crazy in action.
