"This is erasure of Elizabeth Warren! Not a good look!"
"This is what many Dems signaled they wanted, and the media elevated white candidates."
"You're white."
"It’s sickening DNC cherry-picked their polls to get rid of candidates of color like @TulsiGabbard and @AndrewYang who are only 1 'qualified' poll away."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang "@andrewyang and @TulsiGabbard only need one more qualifying poll a piece, so there's a good chance we'll see 2 non-white candidates on the debate stage. Relax a little."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang "We need diversity on the @TheDemocrats debate stage. Fix this @TomPerez."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez "Conviniently [sic] they are all white..."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez "White voters are completely rejecting POC candidates and are now completely telling on themselves. Whiteness as a currency is too strong of an allure for white voters to ever choose a candidate who challenges that head on. Subtle white supremacists exist on the Dem side too."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez "Lol you want poc talking mouths who push for the current neo-liberal agenda (kamala with her cop-ass), not actual candidates who want to create significant change."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez "It's not quite clear to me who's fault this is though.
Kamala suspended her campaign.....who's fault is that? Cory and Julian aren't getting the donations/polling to qualify for the debate......who's fault is that?
I know folks are angry, but I'm not sure who's to blame here."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez "The media raised the profile of white candidates so they didn't need to spend as much on advertising. The systemic bias simply makes the playing field uneven and Harris ran low on funds as a result.
Basically no one person is at fault but system needs to be changed."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez "I am for #MayorPete but I have contributed to Corey and Julian for the express purpose of helping them qualify. The number of contributors matters so if you feel diversity matters ante up. Even the price of a burger helps."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez "There should be an unspoken understanding that if a white male gets the nomination a WOC must be VP."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez "If it was candidates of color, supported by POC being rejected by white voters, maybe? But that isn't the case. I think it's more a generational issue than a race one, except that the longer back you go, the less candidates of color you see. Only shames(?) are Booker and Pete."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez "I'm more sickened by how many are capitalists..."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez "This stinks. I really hoped that this would be another election in which a non-white person ended up President. We need the leadership to reflect *all* of our people."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez "What’s sickening is at least 5 out of 7 people on the DEMOCRATIC debate stage are republicans."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez "I'm white and damn, I'm sick of all white ppl monopolizing
*everything *.
I left middle rural America 33 yrs ago to go the farthest west in order to live in a very diverse area. I hope Warren wins and picks Kamala as VP."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez "Looks like I’m sending @JulianCastro some $$$ today."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez @JulianCastro "Jim we're tired of your precious corporate democrats. Just because they might be POC doesn't change our minds!"
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez @JulianCastro "Real fucked up thing to say about Elizabeth Warren, bro"
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez @JulianCastro "@TomPerez THIS IS ON YOU. The Black vote is under attack. From gerrymandering to voter suppression they'll do ANYTHING to block our vote. Even worse you're too stupid to realize that COMPLETE lack of representation is ALSO a deterrent. This is tragic. Not one POC on that stage."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez @JulianCastro "Progressives talk a big game to get minority vote but it’s all about control for a different set of rich White people."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez @JulianCastro "If there is no person of color nor a woman on the democratic ticket come November, Democrats will most likely lose. That's just my opinion."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez @JulianCastro "Who knew the democrats were so racist.
Don't forget, three of them are old as balls too."
@TulsiGabbard @AndrewYang @TheDemocrats @TomPerez @JulianCastro "Nothing says cultural dismissiveness like throwing 'purple' in the mix like it doesn't even fucking matter."

-----------------------------------------------

That's my favorite, because it's saying that race is culture.
