The story here is about a racial divide over police defunding. And had it been the more traditional kind of racial divide, the media would have been happy to talk about it.
Unfortunately, it’s the wrong kind of racial divide.
Black voters disliked the police department at higher numbers than white voters. (Don’t get the idea that is about actual experiences because black men are more in favor of police than black women are.)
But when asked, “Do you think Minneapolis should or should not reduce the size of its police force?”, 75% of black voters said, “No”.
