Harris-Perry: If You Become the Party of Black Voters, There Will Be ‘Exodus’ of White Voters

On MSNBC’s “Melissa Harris-Perry” Saturday, host Melissa Harris-Perry explained, like the desegregation of lunch counters, that if a political party were to become one that represents “people of color,” it would then cause an “exodus of white voters.”

“I guess the problem is that once there’s a preference that is strongly against people of color, then actually choosing to have a market that is open to them can actually reduce the number then of white consumers who will come. And that was true in the whole context of the desegregation of lunch counters. It’s even true in the vote, right? if you become the party that represents people of color, you’ll actually see an exodus of white voters.”
