Don’t need to. Their voters defiantly self-identify as such. Loud and proud like the southern baptist convention failing to denounce white supremacy.
Plus the condescension that blacks are so stupid they turned against the party of Lincoln in favor of the party of Wallace and Connor. As though the people who live it most understand it least.
Fuck that. If repugs aren’t racist, why can’t they attract legitimate black candidates. Let alone voters.
