Tell me why…

…Sen. Kamala Harris was right when she she said Friday black women deserve to have  a bigger voice  in the upper echelons of the Democratic Party.   She wasn’t correct,  because they don’t of course,  no more than white women do,  or pale African-Americans or copper-skinned Indians.  She is well experienced in identity politics because that is all she has, so she is going  after critics  of the practice early and often.

As for  “…thanking women of color for electing progressive leaders,”  we should be showing them the error of their previous ways.  We should point out what progressivism has done to Baltimore,  Detroit,  Cleveland,  Chicago,  Los Angeles,  Seattle,  Portland — I could go on,  but you get my drift.   No city with progressive government  does well by the people who live there.  Regardless of what Democrats claim,  socialism is not designed to level the playing field.   It is quite effective at keeping the elites living the high life while turning everyone without connections into the wretched poor of your average Third World country.

Sen. Harris need look no further than Maxine Waters in the House,  who is under  investigation  yet again for corruption.   Living in a fancy home outside of the district she represents,  while her constituents are amongst the poorest in the state — this is the face of black females in the Democratic Party,  and Sen. Harris won’t be the one to change that.
