A Humorous Critique of Voting One’s Identity

Posted in exnomination, gender, intersectionality, oppression, race and racism, U.S. politics at 8:26 pm by LB


A (humorous) reminder that women and black Americans (not to mention black women!) actually vote for who they think is the most qualified candidate– shocker, I know. And what a f*cking insult that the media persists in insinuating they don’t. And funny, no one appears to be asking white men voting for John McCain if they’re voting their gender or race. Oh that’s right, McCain gets to be an unmarked “candidate” while Senators Clinton and Obama are marked as sexed and racial ‘others.’
