One of the most talked about special election ever has come and gone in Alabama. Most of us are relived by the outcome because it means we (closely) avoided electing an accused child molester. Whether you’re a Doug Jones fan or not, that’s a cause for celebration.
Another thing social media is celebrating is black voters, and black women in particular, because they overwhelmingly voted for Jones. Ninety two percent of black men and 97% of black women voted for Jones.

Social media has gone wild in praising black people for saving Alabama’s conscious. Here are some of the hilarious tweets.
