13. The Democratic Party since Nixon has traditionally

 

represented those people which have not been afforded power by the Republican base, which is comprised largely of white males. Recall Republicans sneering that Democrats were the "mommy party" because they took up issues that affected women? We have been a coalition of people of color and women, with black women at the heart of the party. I trust their judgment.

What better north star to follow when it comes to seeking and keeping democracy and justice than those who have fought so hard to gain it for themselves and their families? We join them in common cause to keep freedom and justice first and foremost in the consciousness of the nation.

This is why Sanders took so long to gain traction. He failed to recognize that economic grievances are not enough in the face of injustices stemming from racism and misogyny. In fact, he has had a slow learning curve and problems with both in his campaigns. Bloomberg has similar issues to overcome an, frankly, should drop out and use his money to better causes than a campaign.

We should keep this in mind when dealing with Trump and his red caps. The broader Democratic Party must be mindful of how Republicans target our specific groups, the language used, and that their marginalization of people springs from a deep well of entitlement based on traditional beliefs that women and people of color are inferior to white males.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
