It isn’t narcissistic to realize you’re not stupid. I never said anything about her being solely judged on gender and race. You did. Your view of my ‘lack of intelligence’, is moot. Always be yourself unless you can be a witch then always be a witch. If old and white equals corrupt, what does old and Native American equal, oh magic Genie?
Hot Always be yourself unless you can be a witch then always be a witch items!
I didn’t say that either. She sounds passionate on the surface. Again, this whole thing starts off with her gender and heritage. Not my doing. I’m just stating the opinion. And defending those, like you, who try to put words in my mouth. I definitely agree with your point that it should be about a person character but women are pretty underrepresented Always be yourself unless you can be a witch then always be a witch. in Congress and minorities are even more underrepresented. And because of this, I think we may be missing many voices and opinions. So in these cases, yes its based on their heritage or background but maybe for a good reason.
Being smart, level-headed and honest and fair are all important things that a leader should be. But a true and compassionate leader needs to regard all the people. In a broad perspective we are all one tribe now and for far too long the voice of the ancestors and the descendants of this land we share have been snuffed out, we are here, we deserve an active voice in Congress. In an ideal world, it wouldn’t be about race but these countries have been built on slavery and genocide and tried to cover up history. Let’s be realistic. Please don’t let your privilege blind you. This woman speaks for all and I’m thankful.
Click it and be cool with our tee!
To those who questioned, I never said ‘solely because’ of anything: Native American or female. But the reality is that she is both, coupled with a law degree and public service. In the video, she stated exactly who she is, and what she has done. I feel that is a totally reasonable argument, and yes, all factors should be considered collectively. Funny shirts. Why “should” I feel the same way you do? Arrogance and wrong-headed thinking, Mr. Marsh, name one representative in Congress that represents the broader population to the exclusion the needs of his/her local constituency. You make no sense!
The reason why women and Native people are underrepresented at all levels of government is that we have raced and gendered concepts of who and what is smart, honest, fair, and level-headed. If the rest of the country had this kind of judgement based, “prove you are worthy of office” thinking, we wouldn’t be in this kind of mess. Listen to her before you make such ignorant comments. Don’t vote her in for her gender, ethnicity, or any other reason, other than she is trying to do good in an area where she experiences a lack of support. I support anyone who recognizes injustices being done
