WashPost Writer Worries: ‘How Many Votes’ Has Higher Black Mortality Cost Dems?

Posted on 11 May 2015

Well, this takes the well-founded belief that the left only cares about blacks because of their votes to a new level.

At the Washington Post's "Monkey Cage" blog yesterday (seriously, that's it's name), Dean Robinson, an "associate professor of political science at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst" who is apparently not a regular contributor, explores "the political consequences of excess mortality among blacks." The item's headline leaves no doubt that Robinson and the Post know in whose pocket the black vote resides. Robinson and apparently the underlying study's authors utterly fail to recognize that, as of 2010, the mortality problem they identify was barely half as important as it was in 1993, and that if current trends continue, the problem won't exist fewer than 20 years from now.
