Good, that’s what I want to hear. If we are to get rid of racism, then we shouldn’t celebrate or denigrate race in instances where ideas should be the deciding factor. If these women want to celebrate their heritage as part of a community that’s for them to decide, but for the news to make a bigger deal out of their race rather than their politics means they are racist themselves.
I think in this context it means people (hopefully) are looking past their skin tone and are actually voting based on policies or voting because of their skin tone to set the precedent that they can have people of different skin tones in office. I think. Maybe I’m wrong
