Democrats Spin Kamala Harris Tap-Out Into Racial Injustice Story

Democrats Spin Kamala Harris Tap-Out Into Racial Injustice Story, by Tyler Durden.

Kamala Harris’s abrupt departure from the 2020 election due to a lack of funding has already sparked a debate over race – with the logic ultimately circling around to ‘Democrats aren’t ready to nominate and elect a strong black woman.’ …

Kamala Harris

Al Sharpton

Both Cory Booker and Al Sharpton have come out in recent days, lamenting the lack of black Democratic candidates — while blaming her failure as a candidate on sexism and racism instead of her inability to appear authentic, her roiling anger underneath a thin veneer, and general lack of any plan whatsoever. …

And no, it wasn’t because Samoan-American Tulsi Gabbard dismantled Harris during an April debate, which coincided perfectly with her demise in support.

And it wasn’t a series of articles in the San Francisco Chronicle penned by former California legislator Willie Brown essentially calling his old mistress an unqualified whore whose career he boosted.

Nope, according to Al Sharpton, whose Harlem-based charity pays him over $1 million per year, ‘black women are held to a different standard.’

Peter Hassoon:

Harris’s announcement means the only candidates who have qualified for the next Democratic debate are white, a fact that caused chagrin among media figures and liberal activists. …

Left-wing commentator Lauren Duca implied that Democrats have a racism problem, as evidenced by Harris’s failed campaign. “White supremacy is not just a Fox News problem, folks,” she charged. …

“It’s really fucked up that straight white male billionaires (plural) are going to qualify for the next debate while Kamala Harris is leaving the race. Like, immensely,” wrote Adam Peck, a staffer at the left-wing Center for American Progress.

David Bernstein:

What do you call a candidate pool with two women, a gay man, a jew, a half jew, and a Catholic?

If you’ve drank a certain type of Kool-Aid, you call this “not diverse” — even though there has been only one Catholic president, and no gay, Jewish, or woman presidents. The obsession with arbitrary and artificial “official” minority status may be the single worse feature of the modern chattering classes.

Mike LaChance:

Does anyone believe Michelle Obama would face any negative treatment by the media if she jumped into the race?

The media gave Harris every assistance because of her color and sex, but … white supremacy.

Oh wait, the racists on the left get even funnier:

‘Not one person of color’: Congressman scolds fellow Democrats for choosing only white impeachment witnesses, by Madison Dibble.

On Wednesday, the Judiciary Committee held a hearing featuring four constitutional scholars on the topic of impeachment. Rep. Al Green condemned the committee for only featuring white scholars during a speech on the House floor prior to the start of the hearings. …

What subliminal message are we sending to the world when we have experts but not one person of color? Are we saying that there are no people of color who are experts on this topic of impeachment?”

It’s pretty simple. Treat people as individuals (a moral choice), but do not be afraid of noting statistical differences between groups (that’s reality).

The left are pushing hard in the opposite directions. The new left treats people primarily as members of groups, and denies statistical differences between groups. Immoral and unreal.
