Kamala ain't that great but she's 0.000001% shitty compared to Bill Barr. Fuck that guy, and fuck you, OP.

This queen. You ain’t gonna make this happen, beyotch. Surrender Dorothy. I’m starting to think you’re a visiting fascist. Black women are the backbone of the Democratic Party. Duckworth, while a fine Senator, adds nothing to the ticket. We need to excite the base, not deflate the enthusiasm of our most key constituency. Remember Doug Jones? He was made possible by Black women, not biracial (API) fighter pilots. Sweet Jaysus, take your Anafranil.

Kamala is youthful and vibrant. She'll make Joe look less feeble standing next to her. Duckworth will just amplify Joe's awkwardness with her own handicaps. Sounds mean I know but it is a visual medium.
Pretty much every election in my lifetime the better looking candidate won.

R9 - your utter stupidity makes me nervous. You can't "end up with delegates" if you exit the race before competing in a single state. She did that on purpose and frankly everyone except for Joe, Bernie and maybe Liz should have done the same. Oh, except Mayor Pete who had zero to lose as he didn't have a Congressional seat to maintain (or any job at all for that matter). She would have secured plenty but never enough to win. Joe was the only one that mattered at the end of the day (who cares how many/few delegates any of the other also-rans ended up with?). This massive influx of Kamala hate (which makes little sense on a gay forum considering that Senator Harris is one of the most gay-friendly politicians in this country with a track record to prove it) seems like full-on troll attack to me - which tells me that she makes them nervous. Have your opinions, but stop with the lies and manipulations. It's getting really old.

Two white guys on a Democratic ticket in 2020? That would be insanity. He said he would pick a woman because that’s precisely what he intended to do. He didn’t box himself into a corner. He was never going to pick a white guy.
And if he wants to avoid scaring old white people, he can select Tammy Duckworth or Val Demings.

R85, the fashionable new strategy is to argue that Black people have been uniquely harmed by “structural racism” such as redlining and restrictive housing/land use zoning (e.g., residential areas refusing to rezone for mulrifamily housing are raising housing prices, etc.). See also generational wealth accumulation (as through housing), education (also largely due to housing given local school districts being based on where children live and funded by local taxes).
It’s really quite an expansive view of how America has harmed black Americans, and is the basis of an argument that America as a whole must make amends, primarily by massive, multigenerational transfers of wealth and opportunity.
This piece by Coates was hugely influential in building the new angle from which reparations is being pushed. It has oh late won massive support among liberal white people.
