Being at Kamala’s rally yesterday was amazing except for the part where the leftist white guy behind me started screaming harassment at her, we had to chant “Ka-ma-la!” in an attempt to silence him, and I was all too reminded of this same situation happening to Hillary in 2016.
Not going to lie: I was very nervous that this guy was behind me and was afraid to say anything to him because we were packed in and I was surrounded by women. The security guard in our section eventually escorted him out which I was grateful for but it left me shaken a bit.
I worry for our female candidates, especially Harris being a woman of color, not because I don’t think they can take the heat but because there are men out there that are *really* mad there are more of them now. We haven’t really accepted that misogyny played a big role in 2016.
"She was not accessible," they say, though she walked through rain to shake hands and listen to concerns.
There's a reason why you never saw these photos in the news or attached to articles. Let's make sure they are for the next female candidate who runs for President.
Going through hundreds of @HFA photos for @TATLGDoc has been a bittersweet experience. It reminds me of the good times but also, retrospectively, I realized that these photos were not circulated because it contradicted the campaign and woman the media painted.
What's passed has passed. It has been a year and a half since I stood in the crowd. But as I approach post-production for #ToAllTheLittleGirls, I'm reminded that we have to challenge our media now more than ever to show women as they are: candidates and beyond.
I agree with what Diane said here. While I understand that #WI1 has national implications because whoever wins will challenge the Speaker of the House, this primary has become completely one-sided because of national discourse, which is steeped in sexism.
When are Democrats going to understand that we didn’t lose the Oval in 2016 because we didn’t have the *middle class* on our side?
We lost because of voter suppression, foreign interference, sexism, racism, media bias. Not because we didn’t pander to ¡white! concerns enough.
A Must Read: “Here is the troubling reality for civically minded liberals looking to justify their preferred strategies: Hillary Clinton talked about the working class, middle-class jobs, and the dignity of work constantly. And she still lost.” theatlantic.com/business/archi…
Let’s be clear here: when we turn the discussion away from #DACA and to the *middle class*, we are turning our backs on people of color and deeming their issues as lesser.
