Zerlina Maxwell said Tuesday that Iowa’s majority-white population makes its caucuses “the perfect example of systemic racism.”
“Maybe I’ll be the only person to say this today,” Maxwell said. “The Iowa caucus is essentially the perfect example of systemic racism. Ninety-one percent of the voters in Iowa are white.”
“It could be perhaps that white children are not in the cages,” she said, referring to the detention of minors who are illegal immigrants at the southern border. “So when you’re talking about the tangible pain that black and brown people are feeling, they feel a sense of urgency because their kids are being put in cages, right? So if you have a 91 percent white electorate, that sense of urgency may not be reflected in the turnout numbers.”
“Structurally, it’s very undemocratic in a country where people of color are historically marginalized,” she said. “What you want is more people participating in the process.”
“If we’re just asking white people what they think about the Democratic candidates, then you’re not getting an accurate reflection of what the primary electorate thinks,” she added.
Now the Iowa caucus, itself, is #RACIST. At this point it would probably be easier for democrats to say what ISN’T racist? How delicious & ironic the race-obsessed democrats are almost certainly going to pick a WHITE GUY for their candidate! #PopcornTime https://t.co/QjRSqXjwxQ

So, the Democrat caucus in Iowa is a perfect example of “systematic racism?” So, that means the Democrats are the ones who are inherently “racist” because Republicans have nothing to do with the Democrat Iowa caucus.
So Democrat operatives are showing their true “colors” – in this case condemning voters in the State of Iowa for being much too (91%) WHITE. Who’s the racist here?

So maybe she could explain that. Who’s to blame for a small black population in Iowa? I’m thinking if blacks wanted to live there they would.
