I don’t make predictions.
But, after Joe Biden’s potentially devastatingly stupid “I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black” statement, it seems clear that he and his people are virtually certain to pick a Black running mate.
The reason is simple: based on the way they have operated for decades, they will figure that doing so will be their best shot at solidifying the near-monolithic Black support they’ll need to win the 2020 presidential election.
In other words, “show those Black folks a Black face on the ticket and they’ll come running”.
If I’m right about this – and I would bet money I am – the disdain Biden & Co. show for Black voters makes me sick to my stomach.
