And Sexism. That’s what Progressive-Democratic Party Presidential nominee Joe Biden is promising for us if he’s elected.
No, this isn’t about his sexist promise that he’ll have only a woman for Vice President, rather than the most qualified person, who might happen to be a woman, nor is it his strong leaning that the woman must be black, not—again—the most qualified person, who might happen to be black (and/or a woman).
This is about Biden’s promise of who he’ll nominate for Supreme Court Justice.
I have—we are putting together a list of a group of African-American women who are qualified and have the experience to be in the court.
Not people who are qualified and have the experienced to be on the Court and who happen to be black and women. No. Biden’s first criteria for his selections are skin color and gender—only third is actual qualification and experience.
This isn’t just pandering to blacks for their vote. This isn’t just insulting blacks by presuming they’re stupid enough to be bought off by such naked pandering.
Nor is this just a matter of pandering to women for their vote. Nor is it only insulting to women’s intelligence.
This is far worse than that: this is stinking sexism and rank racism.
