…because sexist racism!?
Senator Amy Klobuchar (D, MN) has taken herself out of consideration for the Progressive-Democratic Party’s nomination for Vice President alongside Joe Biden.
Klobuchar told MSNBC‘s Lawrence O’Donnell she called Biden Wednesday evening with her decision, saying she believes “this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket.”
First, Biden showed appalling sexism with his insistence that he’ll have a woman Vice President candidate because she’s a woman, not because the most meritorious candidate happens to be a woman.
Now Klobuchar is showing appalling racism by saying Biden’s Vice President woman candidate should be a “woman of color” because she’d be a woman of color, not the most meritorious candidate happens to be a woman and a person of color.
It’s getting disgusting in the Progressive-Democratic Party.
