According to the civil rights activist Al Sharpton, Black men who do not vote for Stacy Abrahams, are only doing so because they are “insecure as being a man.” He claims that misogyny is becoming more acceptable. Sharpton made the statement on while a guest on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“And — and the thing that — that speaks to me from what you were saying is I’m hearing it both in the in the faith community and the black community, misogyny becoming — becoming more acceptable. I literally have black men calling my radio show saying, well, we’ve got enough black women in power. You know, Ketanji Brown Jackson in the Supreme Court. We have Vice President Kamala Harris,” He stated.
“I don’t know if I want to vote for Stacey Abrams. Who would not be proud of Stacey Abrams, unless you’re so insecure as a man that you feel that you’ve got to be manipulated by probably some provocateurs or the faith community that I don’t believe in women’s right to choose and women ought to be subordinate, not leading. So did you read the Bible and forget the Book of Esther and Ruth? I mean, did they edit that out of your Bible? I mean, it’s becoming disturbing.”
