During a town hall event on Sunday, 2020 Democrat presidential hopeful Seth Moulton brazenly suggested racism played a role in Stacey Abrams’ failed gubernatorial campaign during the 2018 midterms.
“If this country wasn’t racist, Stacey Abrams would be governor,” alleged Moulton, who went on to claim “people of color are being systemically denied the most basic right in a democracy, which is the right to vote.”
Since losing the election, Abrams has repeatedly denounced the results while accusing her Republican opponent, Brian Kemp, of having suppressed votes in the Georgia election.

Moulton’s remarks, especially his implication that Americans were “racist,” did not sit well with social media commenters, who pointed out several glaring issues with his assertion.
Didn’t realize the whole country was able to vote in that particular election.
