Republicans may be rejoicing after Donald Trump’s upset victory in the 2016 presidential election, but in North Carolina – a state that our nation’s President-elect won – Republicans are pulling out all the stops post-Election Day in a brazen attempt to hold on to the governor’s mansion.
Gov. Pat McCrory lost the North Carolina governor’s race and seems to be orchestrating an attempt to steal it. Not only did Republicans lose the race, they also lost control of the state’s Supreme Court, four to three.
In the aftermath of the 2016 election, North Carolina Republicans are trying to add two new seats to the state’s High Court so the governor can appoint right-leaning judges and pack the court. If successful, the North Carolina Supreme Court would remain under Republican control.
Roland Martin spoke with MSNBC’s Sheinelle Jones about his recent interview with White Nationalist and Alt-Right spokesperson Richard Spencer.
During their chat, Martin told Jones, the media misidentified the White economic angst bubbling up in America. The host of TV One’s NewsOne Now had properly identified the White resentment and resistance that has risen to prominence as early as 2009 following the election of President Barack Obama.
Martin also explained that “White fear is real” in a changing America where no one group will be the majority and said the angst that has arisen from that fear is “nothing to play around with.”
