Last week, in yet another shady move from former President Donald J. Trump to reassert himself into our national politics, he announced publicly that former NFL great Herschel Walker told him that he was going to run for the U.S. Senate in Georgia in 2022.
Although Walker has not yet made a formal announcement, there is a concern in GOP circles in Georgia that he may not be ready for such a big platform, and up against a native son of Georgia in Senator Raphael Warnock. Should he decide to run, Walker’s opponent will be the newly-elected incumbent Reverend Warnock who was the first Black senator elected to office in Georgia since Reconstruction.
Warnock won handily in his primary field and got the most votes in the general special election of January 2021. He will be a formidable opponent against any GOP challenger, but particularly a political novice like Walker who doesn’t even live in Georgia. He resides as his primary residence in Texas, according to news reports.
Republican arrogance and ignorance led by the biggest fool in American history, Donald Trump, leads them to mistakenly believe that replacing one Black man for another is the answer to their problems in Georgia. Not so. Black voters and Black citizens are far more astute than that. The Republicans show their utter lack of understanding of Black people and the role of Black clergy in our communities with this blatant attempt to replace Pastor Warnock with a famed Black football player.
What Republicans fail (and have failed) to understand for the past 50 years is that Black people are not single-issue voters. We care about everything our white fellow voters care about: education, taxes, housing, the right to own property, and building a better future for our children.
Instead of courting us, and talking to us, and listening to what our communities need, Trump and his minions in Georgia think that they can run a Black man, and just swap one for another. Thus, somehow tricking the voters of Georgia that the two men are the same. They are not. Although we can all appreciate and celebrate Mr. Walker’s storied football career at the University of Georgia, we have to be clear that if he is a friend of Donald Trump’s, and Trump’s white grievance insurrectionist party, he is no friend to Black people.
