NY Times: Democrat Voters Are Racist For Kicking Kamala Out Of The Race

Many have trotted this out since Kamala Harris dropped out, but, it’s not Official till the NY Times chimes in. Interestingly, this race baiting screed, which also blames black people, by Melanye Price, who is, unsurprisingly, a political scientist who specializes in contemporary black politics, public opinion and political rhetoric, fails to mention just who were not voting for Kamala

Why There Won’t Be a Black Woman Running for President

When Senator Kamala Harris of California entered the race for the Democratic presidential nomination in January, many believed she would be hard to beat. Telegenic, highly educated and from a multiethnic background, she would have been an ideal candidate in the pre-Obama era. We expected her to create an All-American narrative that is relatable to a wide cross-section of the country. After all, that’s how President Barack Obama ascended in 2004. But Ms. Harris failed to do that.

As we write eulogies of this once promising campaign, which ended on Tuesday, it is important that we talk about more than just personal failings by Ms. Harris and her staff members. We need to talk also about what campaigning looks like for black women and what challenges and hurdles the Harris campaign laid bare. There are biases and structural disadvantages that can be found in the subtle ways the media and the public responded to her candidacy. (snip)

So many times, I wanted her to talk about the experience of growing up with immigrant parents, attending a historically black college, her connection to her Indian heritage and ascending in politics, a predominantly white and male profession, in ways that offered us a glimpse into the world that formed her. As I write this, I am not even sure whether or not it is sexist to ask that she emote upon request.

Well, since blacks only make up less than 13% of the population, that’s not surprising, is it? There are certain professions, such as teaching and HR, which tend to be dominated by women, right? Meh, doesn’t matter, y’all are raaaaacists

In the end, however, she and other candidates were hamstrung by the same thing that has sheltered Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg — the structural discrimination that comes from how we define electability. The left’s hyper-focus on beating President Donald J. Trump in 2020 has also resulted in a re-narrowing of who is electable in ways that many assumed had forever changed after 2008.

Thrown about as an identity-neutral term, there is no doubt that, in 2019, electability means white male centrist. In the shadow of America’s first black president, it seems that only white men who take positions that are more conservative than the party’s base can overcome the misogyny and racism of the current president, not women or racial minorities and certainly not a black woman. (snip)

To be clear, this is not just a story of white voters rejecting her candidacy, though they did. It’s also about black voters doing the same. Any time a black politician has to demonstrate her blackness or prove her connections to the black community, she is already in serious trouble. But why were blacks so suspicious?….

So, whites rejected her because of raaacism, and blacks because she’s…. a terrible candidate.

In black circles, the “she’s a cop” refrain was heard most often. Her role as California’s attorney general — its “top cop” — was a major source of criticism during her presidential run. Police officers of any gender or race are wildly unpopular among blacks.

Is Ms. Price saying that all blacks hate cops because they want to commit crime? Huh. That’s a pretty harsh generality. Excitable Charles Blow is also pushing the raaaaacism meme today, as well. But, who, exactly, is racist? That would be Democrats. It was Democrats who were the ones picking and choosing their next candidate. Voting in polls. Donating money. Coming to rallies.

So, apparently, Democrats are racists. And sexists. Remember, Corey Booker’s campaign is just barely alive. But, then, quite a few white’s and Latinos have dropped out. It couldn’t be because Kamala, like the others, is a bad candidate, right? Democrats are engaged in Outrage Olympics over an all-white stage for the next Democrat debate.

Got that? Democrats are white supremacists.

    … Except Harris isn’t black either.

    1. Force Harris to re-enter the race against her will, even though she doesn’t have any money to continue. When has “who is going to pay for this” ever mattered to socialists.
    2. Blacks will punish the Democratic party by voting Republican this year. HAHAHAHA. I couldn’t say that with a straight face either.
    3. Declare rich white old guys Biden/Bloomberg/Sanders as “black enough” and pretend you supported them all along.

  2. Hal P says:

    Racist? Really? How do you come up with this?
    She’s half Indian, and half Jamaican, didn’t know either was a race.

    More leftist BS

    More that we have a white POTUS why has all talk about golf vacation costs of Air ForceOne flight costs ceased to be important to you Teach?

      We used to call diversity tokenism.

      Now, just because the Democrat party sees no virtue in the opportunism of Chlamydia or Spartacus, the rules must change. No wonder you’re losing.

      And you need a period.

      In more ways than one.

      Apparently, they were only important you, John.

    The lovely and loony Amanda Marcotte, lamenting Mrs Emhoff’s departure from the race, admitted:

    Clearly, a lot of the blame must fall on Harris’ shoulders for what can only be described as a disastrously poor campaign, and also on those among her supporters who mistook yelling at people as a viable recruitment strategy. And yet, I can’t help but feel bad for Harris and for the K-Hive. From the get-go, Harris and her supporters got a raw deal, and some of this toxicity came in reaction to the unfair treatment they got at the hands of supposed allies on the left.

    Yet more blame, of course, falls on the shoulders of rich donors, who are using Hillary Clinton’s 2016 defeat as a pretext to do what they always wanted to do, which was to fund centrist white guys as the only “electable” candidates. But in online spaces, Harris was getting constantly dunked on and trolled by people who are ostensibly better than that, the leftist Twitter crowd that vies to appear woker than thou.

    So, even admitting that Mrs Emhoff ran a lousy campaign, it’s still the fault of racist rich donors who preferred other candidates, and the ‘Bernie Bro’ types who didn’t support her.

    Still, Mrs Emhoff lasted longer than ‘Beta’ O’Rourke, a guy trying to portray himself as the reincarnation of Robert Kennedy, or Eric Swalwell, who thought he could win the nomination on gun control, or Jay Inslee, who wanted to climate change his way to the presidency, and all of them were good white males. But it was still raaaaacism that forced her out.

    Presidential candidates are always going to have opposition, and I’m pretty sure that Miss Marcotte remembers her own strident opposition to Donald Trump . . . and every other Republican. She probably still thinks it’s just unfair that John Edwards had to drop out of the 2008 nomination campaign in part because he hired Miss Marcotte as his campaign blogger, and her past words came back to haunt him.

    And, of course, he was too busy knocking up another campaign staffer.

    It would take a true [insert slang term for the rectum here] like me to point out that Miss Marcotte was supporting another good white guy against a Person of Color and Person of Vagina in that primary campaign, but that was because he was paying her. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_whistle3.gif

    It turned out that, when the pressure was on, Mrs Emhoff was not up to the job.
