This was on point Sam McKenzie Jr.! It goes back to my why my vote doesn’t count. We get all hyped up, we write, talk donate…
And then egotistical politicians like Hillary Clinton will come out and say her husband didn’t abuse his power by have sex with Monica Lewinsky. She’s just out here screwing up the Dems; confirming what Black folks already knew about her and about feminism (which is why many of us wouldn’t vote for her), and bending the rules to benefit from White privilege.
You’re right to focus on state politics, which is why I have re-engaged into FL’s dirty politics. At the end of the day, at the federal level, nothing is going to change. A few new faces and shades perhaps, but until these new politicians get seniority in their tribes, the same White supremacy and male privilege awaits them (and us). Unfortunately they have cheated so much and for so long structurally they are like a roach infestation inside of apartment walls. You can never get rid of all of them. They just breed, move to a new place, and start all over again.
You can’t kill White Supremacy, and it just won’t die.
