Also, the types of Black Dems selected to represent the party nationally have a lot in common — it’s that they are either very fair-skinned like Booker, Harris, and Obama most times not fully African-American (Kamala and Obama). The representation is not what the party thinks. It really shows a lack of understanding about the most solid sub-group of their base.
