I’ve been asked repeatedly what my thoughts are on Joe Biden’s talking about working with segregationists as an example of being able to work with anyone.
All I can/will say is that I am not going to tear-down any of our candidates. It is just playing into the Republicans hands to have our traditional Democratic circular firing squad; let the Republicans spend big bucks, don’t give it to them for free. The media is already running with this as an early 2020 version of “But her emails,” and I refuse to play Democrats in Disarray.
Here’s my advice: watch the polling that will undoubtedly be released soon, and see if Biden is losing Black America’s support. And here’s a big hint a black Twitter buddy gave me yesterday (emphasis mine):
“…the “Black vote” is a misnomer. It is actually the Obama vote… Everyone knows Biden is part of Obama’s inner circle… The dynamics are extremely complicated.”
The candidates that go after Biden with hammers and tongs are making a mistake. They must sell their own goods and services and convince us to support them, not to go after each other.
All that said, I’m still (as of right now) favoring Warren and Harris, but I will absolutely support our final nominee.
