In his razor-thin victory, Doug Jones won because of the black vote.

The white vote went overwhelmingly for Moore. The black vote went for Jones, by near unanimity.

Despite efforts to suppress the vote, black voters turned out in greater numbers than they did for Obama.

NBA Star Charles Barkley campaigned for Jones. After the win, he was asked if he had a Message for Trump. He said, no, he had a message for the Democratic Party. “Stop taking the votes of black people and poor people for granted.”
