WASHINGTON - Joe Biden is under pressure to pick a Black woman as his vice presidential running mate. But polls suggest the most popular prospect among Black Democrats is white.
Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., are widely seen by Democratic officials and activists close to the process as front-runners, though other candidates remain in the mix and a Biden aide told NBC News that "the process is dynamic and ongoing and no final decision has been made."
I dont support an all-white ticket, said Aimee Allison, the president of She the People, a progressive group that works to promote women of color in politics. That was a tremendous mistake in 2016. We have a party thats half people of color and a quarter Black. The ticket needs to reflect that.
Allison said Harris would be one of several excellent candidates for vice president, citing the former California attorney generals outspoken push for racial justice in recent weeks as the Senate debates police reform.
'A Black face in a high place' not enough?
Jorden Giger, a 29-year-old teacher and Black Lives Matter activist in South Bend, Indiana, disagreed. While he understands the need for a diverse ticket, he wants Biden to pick Warren.
Descriptive representation is not enough. It's not enough just to have a Black face in a high place, Giger said by phone. We need someone to actually champion our positions in a real way and she's the best there is.

Give Harris a little time. Once she caucuses some more she’s in.
Lizzie probably has an old family tapioca recipe from the teepees of Oklahoma
He’s pretty much trapped into picking a black woman.
He’ll be called a racist otherwise.
So Harris is out then
Biden will have susan rice chosen for him as his VP nominee in order that obama can continue his reign to remake America.
I’ve had enough of the jealousy and the intoleration!
blind gossip item
lord help us if true
guesses are Hillary Clinton and Moochie ...mixed with Oprah
Snopes says yes -
Kamala Harris was born in Oakland, California, on 20 October 1964, making her at least 35 years old and unambiguously a natural-born United States citizen. Any child born on U.S. soil is a citizen of the United States from birth, regardless of the naturalization status of the childs parents, and regardless of Jacob Wohls perplexing assertion to the contrary. Though Harris spent her high school years in Canada, she has been resident in the United States since her time as an undergraduate at Howard University that began in 1982, and she has served in public office in the U.S. continuously since the 1990s.
Well alrighty then. If it’s harris, you can vote for the
“pervert and the prostitute-2020”
It's not a binary world any more, there are subtle nuances, intentions, and the like.
The choice is not white/black, it's white/black/fake indian.
Either of those are total unqualified idiots....but all of them are...
Susan is the clean up woman. She'll make sure to clean up any infor Barr stumbled over but didn't release.
I don’t see a problem...Warren can identify as a black if it will get her the nod.
“So Harris is out then”
Yep, I think it’ll be Rachel Dolezal. :)
Piss on both of ‘em. (Oooooh Stacey gonna be so pissed!!)
She's a democrat. So yes.
(I wish that was just a sarcastic joke, but unfortunately it's true.)
