Jimmy Williams on MSNBC: ‘Old white people’ will die and Democrats can get a chance

Liberal MSNBC contributor Jimmy Williams said the “old white people” in the South who vote Republican are “going to die someday” and hopefully usher in a new era of Democratic rule in the region.

“Mitt Romney only won South Carolina with 53 [percent], John McCain with 52,” he said. “That’s a changing South. Those old white people? They’re going to die someday. And who’s going to be there to replace them? People that want you to be for them, not against them.”

Williams used the tone to not only point to racism in America, but offered a very nihilistic view of the South.

“If we did not have an African-American president in the White House as we speak right now, Mary Landrieu would not be in trouble,” he said. “Kay Hagan would not be in any kind of trouble. Michelle Nunn would win overwhelmingly, and maybe Alison Lundergan Grimes would do well.”

Williams did not note that Obama’s approval rating is badly underwater across the country and that the vast majority of Americans polled think the U.S. is heading in the wrong direction. In 2008, President Obama only won North Carolina and Florida in the South while winning only Florida in 2012.
