Op/Ed: Kamala Is Revealing Folx!

In less than three days, Kamala Harris has galvanized the nation, and both sides are inside their feelings. Hmmmm, I wonder WHY?

What has it been, 72 hours?

Three days since the announcement that a woman of color is poised to be the next Vice President of the free world and there are factions up in arms. 

They have lost their collective sh*t!

To those that opine that the system is broken, Kamala is flawed, and better leaders are in order?

That’s just fine. 

That’s just dandy. 

That’s just peachy f*ckin’ keen. 

You take your sweet precious time looking for that unicorn candidate. You can search all your life for all I care!


Election Day is in November. 


So what viable option do you propose between now and then? 

I waited three days patiently for all these naysayers to provide me with real solutions if they did not support a Biden-Harris ticket. And by real solutions, I meant those that adhere to facts that have been vetted by academic journals, not the ‘feelings’ found on YouTube or f*ckerized FoxNews. But what did I hear?

What’s that I hear?


Not a goddamn thing!

Our system has been flawed for decades, generations, centuries, but all of a sudden, there is this uproar over just how flawed it is? The screaming is telling. I didn’t hear too much of a broken system when Reagan, and the Bushes were occupying that coveted spot. 

The rants are probably because leadership is getting browner by the day. 

The indignation is probably because more estrogen is coming to local government, Congress, and the Senate. 

The screams are raging because another person is coming to the White House that has a name that you can’t find on t-shirt or cup. 

If you cannot come up with a viable option, then you need to sit down and just stew. 

Marinate in your MESS. 

Vote for your precious third party and be at peace with your precious conscience. 

If Biden wants to really make certain people lose their sh*t?

Make that Cabinet look like the Dora Milaje

White women mad because Gretchen or Liz didn’t slide into Biden’s ride?

Guess the f*ck WHAT?

You HAD your chance 4 years ago!

And what did you do?

You left Hillary high and dry because she wasn’t that perfect candidate you wanted. You threw a capable, viable, flawed woman aside in favour of a f*cked up pumpkin!

Words of advice, #Becky, #Karen, #MissMillie?

Don’t make the same mistake again!

if Biden’s Cabinet looks like this, it will kill Trump’s supporters on the spot!

These white women clinging to a GOP that has allowed them little to no power across 30 years want to look at the Democratic party as the enemy, but look at your own party first and cast a few stones. I don’t see much change over there. STILL looks overwhelmingly white and male to me. 

To the black people claiming Kamala ain’t black enough?

Kamala is from Oakland and do you really want her to catch you outside in a dimly lit parking lot? Everybody already knows Mike Pence don’t want none of her smoke because she is a lover AND a fighter!

She is black, Tamil, and a graduate of an HBCU. But you will tell anyone that cares to listen about that smidge of native American blood running through your family tree?

Sit yo’ ass down, ‘sis’!

To those people calling Kamala ‘half-black’ and ‘half-Indian’? Let’s set you straight too:

Black is ALREADY multiracial. There is no half-black in America. You tried that MESS with Obama AFTER he won too. When he was running, he was black. When he won, suddenly he was ‘half-white’. 

We will pass on that with Kamala NOW. 

These borderline haters want to claim she locked up black men in droves. 

Excuse me?


I’m gonna need you to stop reading only the ticker at the bottom of the FoxNews screen and being done with your ‘research. Allow me to educate your wilfully ignorant ass!

Kamala Harris didn’t ‘lock up black men’. She worked as a prosecutor under a racist criminal justice system that targets men of color. There IS a difference and if you cannot break that down then you probably got your GED from Trump University. And if you STILL want to cling to that notion, then please present to me a candidate that has not worked under this system in some capacity. Her being an attorney general doesn’t make her any more ‘flawed’ considering our current system. 

Get to STEPPIN’!

Undercover Trumpers?

There are some that are conspiracy theorists that are already trying to snatch Kamala’s citizenship from her. You tried that bullsh*t with Obama and look how well that turned out for you. But when pressed to the wall and scared of defeat, that’s what the GOP does time and time again.

All these people that claim to have common sense yet are doing everything, EVERYTHING they can to drag this Biden-Harris ticket need to check themselves. If you are still a Trump supporter at this point and time, then you already know what you are. And many of you are smart enough to know that your stance is not popular. 

Let’s be clear here. 

It’s not just that it’s not popular because it’s not popular. It’s not popular because it’s wrong, it’s racist, and you don’t like that label. Because I don’t know a single racist person I’ve ever come across that boldly states, “I’m a racist!”. So, per your M.O., you want to say everything BUT that. You want to deny qualifications, facts, and history as it suits you. 

If you can’t show me receipts, I’m showing you the door!

At this point in time, in our American history, I refuse to sit idly by and say nothing. A generation from now, I want to be able to boldly say that I was on the right side of history. And when I say right side of history?

I mean LEFT. 

Biden-Harris or bust, muthaf*ckas!
