This is what @ewarren should be thinking about: the pragmatic black voters who pick Biden b/c they think he’s the most electable. She needs to be making a more indirect argument (e.g., that she can win b/c she’s for working people* and fair play). Reparation talk might scare off a bunch of white people and hurt that “electability” argument.
*”Working people” NOT a code phrase for “white people”.
«Henry Singleton of New York watched all the major Democratic candidates make their pitch to black voters at the NAACP convention in Detroit last month. He was impressed with Kamala Harris, but he plans to vote for Biden in the primary.
“We can’t play with this. This is very, very serious,” Singleton said. “The rhetoric and what Donald Trump is doing — we got to get this man out of office. We can’t take a chance, and Joe Biden is our best chance.”»
