Kamala vs White Supremacy

A real tweet from a real person:

Kamala Harris officially ended her campaign today, which means that all of the candidates who currently qualify for the December Democratic debate are white (Sanders, Warren, Biden, Buttigieg, Klobuchar, and Steyer).

White supremacy is not just a Fox News problem, folks.

I’m very scared of people like this Lauren Duca. They seem completely sincere but that’s what’s so scary. It’s impossible for anybody with a functioning brain honestly to think that the Harris campaign was brought down by “white supremacy.” But these LaurenDucas have abdicated their capacity to think rationally. All they want is to denounce imaginary ideological crimes.

These are very, very scary people. And before you tell me that this LaurenDuca is an isolated dweeb, go on Twitter or FB. This is the #1 most trending reaction to the end of the Harris campaign. I can flood you with examples.

  1. I saw several comments to the effect that Harris dropping out shows why Iowa and New Hampshire (both short on minorities) shouldn’t go first on the primary calendar. This totally ignores the fact that Obama defeated a bunch of white candidates to win both the Iowa Caucus and the New Hampshire primary in 2008. I really doubt that the white voters who turned out for Obama in that primary have all turned into white supremacists in the last ten years.

    1. I just saw a guy on TV explain that African American voters didn’t support Kamala because they were afraid that white people who are all racists wouldn’t support Kamala. And back in 2008 it was the same thing as black voters were scared of supporting Obama until they saw that white people were ready to support him. It’s very convoluted.

    Hey, that group includes two women, a gay boy, and a Jew — looks pretty diverse to me.
