People should be chosen on who they are not what they look like. I have no issue with Sanders reps

on the platform committee.

Who they are = ideas, qualifications, experience, etc.

What they look like = male/female, black/white/Asian, etc.

1. I agree

Qualifications and ability to produce is what matters, not appearance.

I don't think cornel west is qualified.

2. I believe that the population make-up needs to be represented

Would you be OK (and I'm not saying this is the case here) with only men deciding what's best for women?

ETA: Sex/race are more than "appearance"

3. Yep- our history proves excluding women has dire consequences for them! To ignore that is ignorant.
