BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – A racially charged campaign flyer sent to black residents in Alabama’s Senate race is provoking a social media backlash for Democratic nominee Doug Jones, who is scrambling to mobilize black voters against Republican Roy Moore ahead of Tuesday’s election.

The flyer, which has been circulating on social media and reportedly came from the Jones campaign, shows a young black man with a skeptical look on his face.

“Think if a black man went after high school girls anyone would try to make him a senator?” it reads.

Multiple people who received it have posted photos of the flyer on Twitter, with some condemning it as out of touch and insensitive.

Michael Harriot, a writer for TheRoot.com, an African-American culture website, wrote that “it has upset black voters across Alabama.”

“Someone, probably a white man, thought that the image would resonate with black people and motivate them to get out the vote,” he said.

Doug isn’t too bright.

I could have told him that this was a bad idea.

Who are his advisors?

From what I’ve seen at the Trump rallies last year, he is making small yet significant inroads with Blacks and other traditionally hardcore Dem voting blocs. Hopefully more and more of these folks will realize how the Dems have been using and scamming them for decades.

"Doug isn’t too bright."

He's a democrat. The Left side of the Bell Curve. Born stupid, and will die that way.

Shades of a Klan flier, just playing up the old Black men lusting after young, nubile White girls.
