Although both men are Black, Georgia GOP Senate candidate Herschel Walker is drawing a clear comparison about how he and his opponent, liberal Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock, view race as an issue in America.
The former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL star dropped a commercial Wednesday that argued race is a tool Democrats use to wrench America apart.
The ad featured comments by Warnock, Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams, President Joe Biden, and Vice President Kamala Harris.
Abrams, for example, called her state’s GOP-backed election integrity laws “racist: and “a redux of Jim Crow in a suit and tie.”

Harris says “America has a long history of systemic racism,” in remarks discussing the conviction of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.
Walker also uses Biden’s quote to podcaster Charlamagne tha God, who is black, that “you ain’t black” if the listeners had not figured out whether to vote for him or former President Donald Trump.
The final bit shows Warnock proclaiming, “America has a preexisting condition. It’s called racism.”
Walker then takes his turn.
“Senator Warnock believes America is a bad country, full of racist people. I believe we’re a great country, full of generous people,” he says in the ad. “Warnock wants to divide us. I want to bring us together.”
