As 2020 draws closer Democrats hoping to usurp Donald Trump and claim the White House find themselves under pressure to explain how a win for them means a win for groups the party has often used, abused and taken for granted.
One of these groups? The African-American community.
This month, a number of people fear candidate Kamala Harris has ruined her chances of winning after she insinuated that she wasn’t interested in creating policies designed specifically for the group’s benefit and would only do so if the fruit of those policies benefitted everyone.
Fair on paper, worrying in reality.
Why? The concern by many black voters that they are being asked, once again, to support a politician who prioritises everyone else but them.
