Barack Obama is the first black president of the United States. Attorney General Loretta Lynch is black. In the seventeen primary and caucus states (excluding American Samoa and the Northern Mariana Islands), which Hillary Clinton has won through Wisconsin on March 5, 2016, blacks voted for her by an average of 80%, from a low of 60% in Illinois to a high of 90% in Alabama and Mississippi.
In Michigan, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin, which she lost to Bernie Sanders, she received 68%, 71% and 75% respectively of the black vote.
If Hillary Clinton is indicted over the e-mail scandal and has to drop out of the race, the Attorney General, no doubt with Obama’s approval, will have in effect disenfranchised the 80% of black Democrats who voted for her.
That seems inconceivable. It would mean that Bernie Sanders, or a late-entrant like Joe Biden, would get the nomination. Black voters would likely stay home in large numbers, resulting in a massive Republican victory in November.
