Facts are what facts are. It’s a fact that the current crop of Democrat primary contenders is among the whitest, most well off, and most geriatric assembled by either party in a very long time. Funny how the crowd that says they are for tolerance, diversity, the youth, black lives matter, and the downtrodden have three contenders for their party’s nomination who are demographically identical (aside from gender). Where is their candidate of color?
That candidate will have to be Joe Biden. Hands down. He’s already turned his campaign into a personal story of victimhood. The loss of his son was no doubt incredibly traumatic for the man and certainly this author will not question the pain Biden endures as a result. That’s not at issue. It was predictable that he would turn the entire event into a political sales pitch. He’s at once a figure people can empathize with. And a victim. Democrats love them some victimhood. Name a Democratic contender for office that hasn’t played that card in recent history.
Now that he’s got that on his resume, his next step is to establish his credentials as a black man. Bill Clinton did it. In fact, he did it so well he denied Obama the title of “America’s first black President”. So when do we get to see black Joe Biden?
Black lives matter, right?
