Yep but I didn't make the headline. They were so excited they forgot to change kill to killed.

You still understand that it was in the past though.

Not really a "I can't believe" story, but very interesting just the same:

In the video, the guy makes a good point about research and knowing who you're voting for.
At the same time, it does say a lot that all it takes to win an election in a black majority is to be black or not white. There are some black Republicans. Might pay to vote based on record and social/political ideology rather than skin color...

Not necessarily, the whole all it takes to win an election in a black majority is to be black or not white.

In this case specifically, the guy that he was running against was black. So it was "two" black people running for the same position not just a "oh he's black let's vote for him".

The aggression of his marketing campaign and the deception that he went through to make it seem like he was a friendly candidate to vote for is the big issue here. It's actually the main reason he won. I do agree that most voters are slow and just end up voting based off of ad campaigns.

No. That's a pretty standard way of writing a headline, at least over here.

Indeed. They got who they deserved, which is in this case a lying, homophobic scumbag.

I honestly don't know how to say that in a way that doesn't make it look like I'm making a joke about Republican politicians in general, but I actually wasn't.
