We don’t know what will happen between now and the nomination. I’d allow the process to play out. I like Joe Biden (because of his work with violence against women) and I have a great deal of respect for him, but he is a flawed candidate. They all are flawed candidates. We are simply picking the least of two evils. The one who will hurt us the least. All the candidates have a track record of harming people directly or indirectly (Klobuchar, Harris, Beto, Mayor Pete, Joe, Warren, etc.) if they’ve spent any time in public office.

I am Black, and I am going to support any candidate that makes it to the general. The only candidate I’m content with is Castro at this point. He’s done the least damage to humanity. I don’t trust the media to teach me, remind me, or show me anything about a candidate, because the media is just as flawed in their selection of candidates. A White savior is always our best answer, and if the savior isn’t White, it has to be the least scary person of color that has the ability to appease Whiteness. My concerns are secondary if a thought at all. My candidate of choice is not a choice.

My attitude is let’s get this over with already. Which ever evil that will appease Whiteness to save my Black life and the lives of my sons and grand kids…so be it. My vote is simply a number to add to White power. I understand this is how it always has been and this is how it always will be.
