For me, this presidential election season has been characterized by apathy. As a political scientist, I have been grappling with Paul Frymer’s notion of “electoral capture,” the idea that Black people as a whole essentially have no choice but to vote for the Democratic nominee. Perhaps Black Twitter best summed this up with the recent hashtags #GuessImWithHer and #GirlIGuessImWithHer. They are both hilarious and depressing.
