2 Women + 1 Gay Guy = 0 Diversity

Many within the Democratic Party are blaming racisssm as the reason for no blacks on the Democratic debate stage Tuesday night. There were two reasonably well-known blacks – Cory Booker (aka Spartacus) and Kamala Harris in the race, but both dropped out after not having sufficient poll numbers to qualify for the Democratic debates.

Approximately 13% of Americans are black, yet Harris and Booker couldn’t hit 3% in polling. Both trailed white candidates like Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders in polling among blacks.

If Americans are as racist as people like DNC Chair Thomas Perez and members of the Congressional Black Caucus claim, how do they explain Barack Obama being elected president in 2008 and re-elected in 2012? Perhaps the black candidates seeking the 2020 Democratic nomination lacked appeal, even to other blacks.

Democrats are peculiar creatures.

How’s this for “get out the vote” motivation?

Democratic Party National Committee chairman Tom Perez says he’s not to blame for the Democratic Party’s now all-white lineup of candidates for president.  The blame goes to those dirty rotten racist voters — who incidentally are Democrats.

Beth Baumann at Townhall reports:

According to Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Tom Perez, voters are responsible for who lands on the stage. And it’s voters’ fault that the stage lacks any diversity.

“We’ve set forth a clear set of transparent, inclusive rules,” Perez said during an interview on MSNBC. “We set those rules out in advance. And it’s for the voters to decide.”

“If you want to make sure that a candidate of color makes the debate stage, when a pollster calls you, make sure you make that preference felt because that is how you move the polling needle and, again, the voters are the ones who are making these decisions,” the DNC chair explained.

Those weasel words are being prompted by statements like this:

A Democratic presidential campaign field that was once touted as the most diverse in history has been whittled down to six candidates on its debate stage, all of them white. For Oakland Democratic Rep. Barbara Lee, that’s a problem.

Lee says the Democratic National Committee’s rules for determining who can participate in its presidential debates is “systematically discriminatory” against people of color.

But it’s frankly rather fun to see Perez squirm at the incompatibility of Democratic secret-ballot voting and affirmative action.  It’s put a barrage of pressure on Perez, who is himself a minority, given that he can’t deliver the minority candidate the woke leftists want.  He could, actually, but he would have to scrap the Democratic nomination process in favor of an affirmative-action diktat.

This has left him blaming Democratic voters for all that wicked racism that somehow kept them from wanting someone like Julián Castro or a goof like Spartacus at the top of their ticket to take on Darth Trump.  It couldn’t be anything but racism, could it?  All it does is remind the rest of us that Democrats are the party of slavery, Jim Crow, and the Klan.

Perez can have one or the other, but he can’t have both.  Nothing says “vote for Democrats” quite like a party chair who tells voters how racist they are behind that ballot box curtain.

    I read somewhere (a comment here back a thread or two?) that at the same point in the 2016 season there were 3 out of 6 Repubs who were POC, namely Ben Carson, Sen Rubio and Sen Cruz.

    Babylon Bee is still in the game!
    “The FCC announced today that the next Democratic debate will not require viewers to use a color television. The decision was made in part due to the fact that all the remaining candidates are white”
