Lefty Pundits Rage At Whiteness Of Democrats’ 2020 Candidates After Kamala Drops Out

Peter Hasson 

The skin color of Democratic presidential frontrunners moved to the forefront of discussion among left-of-center pundits after Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris dropped out of the race Tuesday.

Harris’s announcement means the only candidates who have qualified for the next Democratic debate are white, a fact that caused chagrin among media figures and liberal activists.

“Obviously I’m no centrist but it’s downright effed up that smart, compelling, *very* experienced, centrist Democratic candidates of color are floundering while a smart but wildly inexperienced, centrist white mayor of teeny tiny city is surging,” liberal writer Sally Kohn wrote in a tweet. “Bad look, Democrats.”

Left-wing commentator Lauren Duca implied that Democrats have a racism problem, as evidenced by Harris’s struggling campaign. “White supremacy is not just a Fox News problem, folks,” she charged.

“It’s really fucked up that straight white male billionaires (plural) are going to qualify for the next debate while Kamala Harris is leaving the race. Like, immensely,” wrote Adam Peck, a staffer at the left-wing Center for American Progress.

“Harris dropping out leaves the Democrats with an all-white debate stage for December — Biden, Sanders, Warren, Steyer, Buttigieg, Klobuchar,” commented left-wing writer Judd Legum, who complained that “The Democratic Party has created a process with [sic] includes Steyer but excludes Cory Booker.”

“Kamala may not have been my number one candidate, but she belongs in the race,” added Imani Gandy, an analyst at left-wing outlet Rewire News. “Now we’ve got rich white dudes papering the airwaves with their bullshit,” Gandy wrote, adding: “I’m not voting for Biden or Buttigieg.”

“Moderate white guys are performing so well in the polls in large part because of how they are being propped up by the media,” wrote left-wing activist Adam Best.

Jezebel’s Esther Wang wrote that “it’s hard not to notice that with [Harris’s] departure, and with the struggles of both Cory Booker and Julián Castro to fundraise and qualify for the upcoming debates, the top tier of candidates remaining are all white.”
