The Democratic Party especially needs African-Americans to be angry so they continue to vote racial identity rather than apply critical thinking. Same with single women and gender identity politics.
I have a theory that these racial appeals are also designed to promote voter and election fraud in municipal districts. If you can continue to appeal to unfairness and victimization (the white man is out to get me) you can convince voter and election workers to do some things for you at the polls. In 2008 there were many urban districts that yielded 100% voter turnout.
