Ow. Michael Harriot responds to Buttigieg’s claim that black folk just need more inspiration to succeed.
It proves men like him are more willing to perpetuate the fantastic narrative of negro neighborhoods needing more role models and briefcase-carriers than make the people in power stare into the sun and see the blinding light of racism. Get-along moderates would rather make shit up out of whole cloth than wade into the waters of reality. Pete Buttigieg doesn’t want to change anything. He just wants to be something.
Read the whole thing. Especially you, Mr Buttigieg, and after you finish you can just go off and quietly retire from the race.
