‘Louisiana Elects GOP Governor who supports ‘Anti-Black policies’; Why are Black Voters blamed?’ - Omari Ho-Sang of Black Voters Matter and Founder, Executive Director All Streets, All People (ASAP) joins Historian, Michael Imhotep on 'The African History Network Show' to discuss. 10-23-23


Louisiana's Attorney General Jeff Landry, a Republican backed by former President Donald Trump, has won the Louisiana governor’s race, holding off a crowded field of candidates on Saturday, October 14th, 2023. Landry won the race by receiving more than 52% of the electorate – a threshold that eliminated the need for a runoff election and flipped a seat that was held by Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards since 2016.


Jeff Landry defeated many challengers including Dr. Shawn Wilson who is African American and who received 70% of the African American vote. But another byproduct of Saturday’s election was the scapegoating of Black voters after exit polling data showed their low turnout for a political contest in which the leading Republican has been accused championing anti-Black policies.
