Racism and sexism, that is, and they’re rampant in the Progressive-Democratic Party. Here’s Congresswoman Karen Bass (D, CA) during a FOX 11 interview last Friday on who California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) should pick to replace Senator Kamala Harris (D) in the Senate:
I will tell you that I do believe that there should be an African American woman in the Congress[.]
On the other hand, when asked whether should select an Hispanic to replace Kamala Harris, Bass said,
I agree with that 100%. I think that is absolutely correct, and I think that that should happen[.]
Once again, for the Progressive-Democratic Party qualification for a position matters very little, if at all. The primary criterion, according to Party, is the “candidate’s” race, and the close second criterion is the individual’s sex.
Qualification is far down the list.
