HARRIS: Pandering to far left

| August 16, 2020 1:00 AM

Talk about racism. Yes, I am talking about Joe Biden’s pick for vice president nominee Kamala Harris. Remember the famous speech by Martin Luther King when he said “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

How can anyone say that the pick was not based on race and pandering to the Black Lives Matter group? I know absolutely nothing about Kamala Harris, other than she is of color.

Talk about pandering to a group of people just to get their votes, what a shame. I believe he is dumbing down people of color, just to get their votes. He is hoping they will be ignorant of the issues and vote by color only. What she thinks is irrelevant on any issue, other than she is of color.

Admittedly, as time goes by and we learn more about her, she will probably not be my choice, especially as an independent voter.

In the end, I guess it really does not matter, although it should. Predictions are Biden will not last his first four years, due to health issues. So who is she and what does she stand for? We all know if he wins, he will not be running the country, it will be all the far left radicals and groups he panders to, that call the shots.
