BIRMINGHAM, Ala. A racially charged campaign flyer sent to black residents in Alabamas 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 Tuesdays 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.

I love the smell of schadenfreude in the morning.
Jones should withdraw immediately!
Doug isn’t too bright.
I could have told him that this was a bad idea.
Who are his advisors?
Ouch, when a Leftist can’t count on Blacks to be on their reservation...
What is “Jonesings” sexual history?
Go Doug, GO!!!
Who the f*** would be so stupid as to approve this???
Jones is DONE!!!
I love the smell of schadenfreude in the morning. ......................... Don’t gloat over it, the Libs will find some way to pin the add on Moore. its in the MO.
Did not receive yesterday:
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 Jones hates black people.
Not only that, you sent it to me "Care of Democrat Plantation RFD" you stupid Honkey.
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.
All Democrats are RACISTS!! ANTI WHITE and ANTI CHRISTIAN.ALL OF THEM!!
It’s fun to watch leftard imbeciles blow themselves up.
Eventually, blacks are going to figure out they are just being played by the left...
