Is THIS what systemic racism looks like?

California Rep. Maxine Waters declared in an interview this week that presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s vice presidential pick MUST be black, saying in explicit terms, “[H]e can’t go home without a black woman being VP.”

Below are her full remarks to Essence magazine:

“He has certainly committed on the progressive side, we know that we’re going to have a Black woman who is going to be the vice president. … Let me guarantee you this, based on everything that I know and understand, and the help that he’s already gotten from the Black community … he can’t go home without a black woman being VP.”

The congresswoman’s bold remarks rubbed many people the wrong way, because it seemed to reek of racism — a systemic, innate form of racism, that is.

As the top-voted comment at The Hill reads, “This is what Systemic Racism looks like.”

Isn’t it, though?

While it’s true Biden has already boxed himself in by vowing to choose a black woman, the notion that he MUST choose a black woman does seem to raise legitimate questions about black supremacist racism and discrimination.

In fact, it’s the exact sort of mentality that renowned black Christian actor Terry Crews warned of in a tweet posted amid the George Floyd riots in late June:

At the time, Crews was attacked and mocked by members of the left over his concern, yet two months later it seems as if he’d been 100 percent accurate.

After all, Rep. Waters is a high-powered, 29-year Democrat politician with power and privilege, and here she is applying that power and privilege to issue racial demands.

Even everyday Democrats who loathe President Donald Trump and are desperate to see Biden win come November were bothered by the congresswoman’s remarks.

While irksome, Waters’ remarks didn’t seem that surprising given the Democrat Party’s bizarre and quickly expanding obsession with race.

There used to be a time when all Americans stood by deceased civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream of a nation where people would be judged by their character and merit, not by the color of their skin.

But these days one party has chosen to stand in opposition not only to MLK but also the country. Like Fox News host Tucker Carlson noted last year, the modern Democrat Party is obsessed with race in a country where most Americans don’t give a darn about it.

“All race, all the time. Americans don’t want this. They’re not racially-obsessed unlike the buffoons running for office and most other cable news shows. They care about jobs, security and fairness. The press insists on pitting black against white, Kamala Harris versus Joe Biden.  But real life is far more complicated than that,” he said.

What remains unclear is whether the Democrats will pay a price for this obsession.

Back in 2016, a few weeks after the 2016 race, black columnist Jason L. Riley suggested that the Democrat Party’s tendency “to view Mr. Trump’s victory through a self-serving racial lens” might cost them.

Four years later, not only do Democrats still claim Trump won in part because of racism, despite no evidence to corroborate that specious allegation, but they’ve now openly embraced actual racism themselves. It’s probably not a good look.
