Exactly. What progressive legislation has been passed by any of The Squad? They haven’t advanced the ball any more than the average Democrat.
It is one thing to co-sponsor a bill, and another altogether to RUN your campaign based on a proposal. Few voters will take the time to look up which bills a candidate sponsored, particularly for a bill that didn’t become law. Voters are far more likely to see/hear what a candidate espouses in their re-election… Read more
He’s going to pick Kamala Harris. No other candidate makes any sense. Warren is too old and too white. Klobuchar is too much like paint drying and too white. Most importantly, she pulls in the same demographic Biden already does. I love Demmings and Abrams, but Abrams has no federal experience and hasn’t even won a… Read more
Everybody loves Joe Biden. Kamala and Joe have been friends for years.
Obama offered her Attorney General, and she turned it down. She wants to be president, and VP is one way to make that happen.
ALL of this. Warren couldn’t even be bothered to do anything for Native Americans when she was one. She sure ain’t thinking about our black asses.
The *only* (and I do mean ONLY) candidates who deserved black people’s votes were Kamala Harris and Cory Booker. Black people and our issues were not theoretical to either of them, and they had creative, humane solutions for addressing them. NONE of the remaining candidates deserve black people’s support. Not Bernie,… Read more
This is the best news I’ve heard in 2020. Meghan is like, “You ain’t go’ run me!” and is getting the heck out of dodge. I hope they are able to repair their marriage and their family relationships with a little distance.
The negativity about Kamala in these replies is so odd to me. Kamala has far more of a positive record on civil and human rights than ALL of the other candidates, yet no one ever seems to interrogate the other candidates’ records with the same “vigor” (or rather vitriol, hatred, nastiness, and misinformation) as they… Read more
A lot of people don’t realize just how much racism animates Republicans. They buy into the notion that “if you just work hard, you can make it in America.” It’s only after racism is pushed in their faces do they realize. Lots of black people have tried being Republican because of their focus on business, but… Read more
Justice Democrats are too cowardly to take on Republicans. Their few successes have been in strongly Democratic districts. They aren’t helping grow the map at all which means they aren’t increasing the possibility of passing progressive legislation.
She had the guy take sexual harassment training and had no problems from him for the duration of her campaign. The victim was satisfied with how the situation was handled. My same energy informs me that she didn’t ignore the problem until her staff made public protests before her next campaign like Bernie did.
Thanks for this. Black people are stereotypically associated with urban areas, the projects, etc. Stories about black people and our connection to the land are rarely told. My grandfathers and father were gardeners, fishermen, and hunters. They hunted and fished in the most rural (and whitest) parts of Virginia and… Read more
They could have answered this question in 5 minutes by simply asking almost any person of African descent.
