Buttigieg does it again. (re Kamala Harris) [View all]

I was glad that Harris found a way to emphasize her black identity. To be honest, it was months into the primary season before I realized she was black. By looks alone she could be Hispanic or even Italian or Greek. I'm ambivalent about her attack on Biden, but I was very happy to see photos of her as a bussed child. Here's what Buttigieg had to say about it.

South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg wrote: “The presidential competitive field is stronger because Kamala Harris has been powerfully voicing her Black American experience. Her first-generation story embodies the American dream. It’s long past time to end these racist, birther-style attacks.”

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
