Couldn’t have said it better myself

(a) many millions of nonblack Americans seriously dislike black people

(b) well-nigh every one of those people votes Republican, and

(c) without those votes no Republican would ever win any election above the county level

So, dear reader, who did say it, and where? (No fair peeking, now.)

a) Michael Kinsley in The New Republic

b) Kweisi Mfume in The Crisis

c) John Derbyshire in The National Review

d) Atrios on Eschaton

Oh…..You guessed it.

How clever of you!
