Salon Writer: Stating That Greg Abbott Won the Women's Vote in Texas is Racist Because He Didn't Win Black Women's or Hispanic Women's Votes

Jenny Kutner at Salon is totally mad!!!!

The Tribune cited CNN exit polls to illustrate the landslide, saying Abbott "beat Davis by lopsided margins with white voters (72-27), men (65-34) and women (52-47). Davis beat Abbott among Latinos (57-42) and African-Americans (93-7).' Last time I checked, though, there were thousands upon thousands of women in Texas considered Latina and African-American -- what about their votes?

As RH Reality Check's Andrea Grimes reports, their votes were solidly in Davis' favor: 94 percent of black women and 61 percent of Latinas voted for her. Only 32 percent of white women did. That’s certainly not enough women to say that Abbott won the whole gender

Jenny cites another progressive fymynyst who is also SO ANGRY YOU GUYS!!! Andrea Grimes fumes:

You’ll hear that Greg Abbott "carried" women voters in Texas. Anyone who says that is also saying this: that Black women and Latinas are not "women," and that carrying white women is enough to make the blanket statement that Abbott carried all women. That women generally failed to vote for Wendy Davis. As if women of color are some separate entity, some mysterious other, some bizarre demographic of not-women.

Another progressive, a male one, Jonathan Chait, has stepped in to mansplain to Jenny and Andrea why they're so silly!!!

My admittedly crude method of answering the question “Did Greg Abbott or Wendy Davis win the female vote” would be to compare the number of women who voted for Abbott with the number of women who voted for Davis, and define the larger number as the winner.

...

Nobody is saying the votes of women of color don't count. Everybody's vote counts for one vote. I am comfortable stating that Barack Obama won the women's vote in 2012, even though he lost white women.

So now that a dude has mansplained to these Suspected Communications Majors that they don't understand math and are profoundly childish in their thinking, I'm sure the issue is now officially over and we certainly aren't in for six to twelve days of hysterical meltdowns on the left over this.
