I think we need to discuss likability and track records. Warren is going to have a minority problem, and it has nothing to do with the fact that she’s a woman. We keep letting do-good feminist White women off the hook, without addressing her spreading misinformation about her heritage and using that false heritage to receive a preference or privilege she wasn’t entitled to.

I have watched her and checked out her record. The legislation she’s sponsored or co-sponsored has not benefited African Americans much in a review of her 18 pages of legislation ( most of which appears to have been created over the last 2 years). The biggest beneficiaries of her legislation or Native Americans and veterans.

Warren is a politician like Biden, Trump, Obama, and the Clintons. I don’t trust her because she’s just like Hillary to me. Her history with power is quite telling, and I’m not certain she’s going to be able to bridge the gap in the Black community. Women running for office are going to have to stop with the excuses. You can’t run for office saying you want to serve everyone, when your track record of serving and saving has had a very narrow focus. People of color are paying close attention to White feminist now closer than ever. Being a woman isn’t getting any woman regardless of color a pass anymore. We are tired of putting our eggs in baskets only to get them back shattered.

We aren’t voting for “that” woman because she never gave us a reason to vote for her. My life is on the line, and I have to pick my devil wisely!
