Applause! Applause! Applause!
Regardless of where you sit, honesty will not allow denial of the historical nature of Joe Biden’s pick of Kamala Harris as his vice presidential running mate.
We’ll get to what such a selection says about Biden. First, let’s dive a bit into what Kamala Harris represents.
The contributions of the Black population are continually overlooked and ignored. Black people have a particularly connection to foundation of these United States of America. Amongst that foundation is the even more so overlooked Black woman.
The extent of inequalities and injustices run long and deep. Yet, these roadblocks are no match for the strength, tenacity, courage and intelligence of the Black woman. She has withstood the test, time and time again. She rises to the occasion of her challenge rearing her family. She makes the most of her resources. She works tirelessly and selflessly to provide for her family and to be a caregiver to all who are relying upon her.
When the means are not available to pursue traditional paths to self-improvement, she finds a way.
She rises. She shines. Always tending to the wellbeing of others.
All this, and so much more, is what Kamala Harris represents.
Frankly, women, generally speaking, are a force to be reckoned with. If this administration has done anything at all it is bringing the female power to the forefront and into the spotlight. Whether through the various social conscious movements or the phenomenal female representation in our government, the progressive actions for equality and justice have intelligent and unrelenting women at the head.
Females of all ages and backgrounds can see themselves, somewhere, in Kamala Harris. For most, she represents everything described here. For others, if nothing else, she still represents how far brains, strength and character can take a female even with the obstacles she encounters.
As for Joe Biden, clearly, he demonstrates what it means to be a real man. What do I mean? Well, there is no doubt his choosing Kamala Harris was strategic but that is only part of the magic here. A lesser man could acknowledge a woman’s intellect and tenacity as superficial kudos and be done. But not Biden. Biden wants to be the next President of the United States so he’s not going to play around with his running mate. He can’t afford to make some shallow point. Biden’s pick means he believes In Kamala Harris! Period!
Not only does Joe Biden not hold grudges, he is a man of true honor and character.
The Biden-Harris ticket, too, is one of honor and character, ready to represent the people of this country.
Again, I say, “Applause! Applause! Applause!”
