Revision as of 15:29, 25 June 2019

A Black problem in liberal Democrat rhetoric refers to a white Democratic party candidate's inability to relate to African American voters. Two examples from the 2016 presidential election and 2020 presidential election illustrate:

  • John Podesta spoke of Hillary Rodham Clinton's "Eric Garner problem."[1] Garner was a black man killed in police custody while in a choke hold in 2014. Podesta wrote, "we know we have an Eric Garner problem,"[2] getting Blacks to vote for Hillary Clinton in light of her Superpredator comments to "bring them to heal."[3][4]
  • Mayor Pete Buttigieg was criticized by David Axelrod,[5] Marcia Fudge, Politico,[6] The Daily Beast and others for having a "black problem."[7] Buttigieg attempted a "Sister Soulja moment" when he left off the 2020 campaign trail to deal with a police shooting in his hometown, telling Black Lives Matter activists, "I'm not asking for your vote."[8] A Sister Soulja moment in liberal parkance is defined as "a key moment when the candidate takes what at least appears to be a bold stand against certain extremes in their party" and as "a calculated denunciation of an extremist position or special interest group."[3] Such an act of repudiation is designed to signal to centrist voters that the politician is not beholden to traditional, and sometimes unpopular, interest groups associated with the party.
