Flipping the Coin

While listening to NPR the other day, I came across this point:

Why aren't reporters going to white babershops and asking white men if they're feeling torn between voting for a black man or a white woman? Why aren't we asking them if they're going to vote with their race or their gender?

If we assume white men can choose their candidate based on their character and track record, why don't we assume the same for black women?
