The Georgia GOP is running an ad that appears to put the African American Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Stacey Abrams in a dark set of images that carried the implication that blackness is somehow undesirable.
This is the kind of dog whistle racism that reminds many of the “Willie Horton” ads ran by George H W Bush against Massachusetts Governor Mike Dukakis. Speaking of racism, what about claims that her challenger GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Brian Kemp is racist? He is said to have borrowed the “Georgia First” slogan from a white supremacist.
