She is more qualified, too Black, and not a White woman. There are plenty of White women unwilling to admit their own racism in believing a White woman should be first. We can’t have genuine conversations about race, how are they going to run a country and be fair? They aren’t. I feel Kamala would. She wasn’t my first pick, but she really won me over.

I know they aren’t going to pick her or Susan Rice because they are unapologetically Black, they both have White husbands (yes, Kamala’s husband is Jewish, but he passes and lives as a White man in America too), and they both have baggage when it comes to different segments of voters.

Joe is going to play it safe and White, but if he does pick a Black woman it will be someone that makes White people feel safe and comfortable, which means they won’t be doing shit for us. Any time whiteness is centered, we lose.

I write intelligent, unvarnished thoughts on anti-Blackness, racism, politics, Black people, and White Supremacy. |
