Ever since Joe Biden chose Kamala Harris to be his running mate, I’ve been seeing everyone bashing her. Women who claim to support other women and want women to break that [invisible] glass ceiling. People of color wanting someone in office who looks like them. Women wanting equal rights. Men who still want to keep us down and don’t think we are equal. It’s the women I want to focus on though. Why is it that you pretend to cheer each other on and lift each other up but when one of us finally gets that opportunity and rises to the top we’re the first to try and knock her down?
I find it highly disturbing that the same women who say, “we need more women in politics” or “ let’s raise each other up and lift each other's crowns” or “women are equal to men, we should have the same rights and be judged equally.” Are the same women who are quick say, “she doesn’t deserve it. She slept her way to the top. She’s not even black. She’s a disgrace.” And then turn around and support a know adulterer, who’s cheated on every single one of his wives (including a pregnant one) and has multiple allegations of sexual assault and rape against him! What is wrong with us?
Now, I’m not saying Kamala is perfect and never made any mistakes, but what the fuck dude? How can you expect to get anywhere when you’re constantly bringing each other down? Why can’t we just be happy for one another and celebrate people’s accomplishments rather than trying to tear each other down and point out all their flaws? Everyone has flaws. No one is perfect. But when someone opens a door for you, why not try holding it open for the next person rather than slamming it in their face?
For the past four years, yall have been crying about how people didn’t give Trump a chance and they never showed him any respect and they oughta be ashamed of themselves and here yall are . . . Pot meet kettle . . . doing the same exact thing you criticized others for! Hypocrite much? I guess yall were never taught that two wrongs don’t make a right. It’s easy to judge another’s mistakes while turning a blind eye to your own. It’s something we’re all guilty of. But not everyone is willing to admit it and/or work on it.
My hope for the next four years, and the future in general, is that we all learn how to come together and work as a team. Not even just the United States, but people in general. The world would be a much better place if people could just get along and stop judging each other and discriminating against each other. Hold people accountable for their mistakes and hold yourself accountable for your mistakes. Don’t condone mistreatment or discrimination or injustice; but if someone is different than you, thinks differently than you, looks different from you, is less wealthy or a different religion or race, or whatever don’t look down on them. Don’t treat them badly. Don’t discriminate against them.
Those of us who support Biden and Harris aren’t naïve enough to think they can change the world or fix (all) the countries problems, but we do have faith in the fact that that four years of them will be a hell of a lot better than whatever the fuck we endured the past four years. We believe they want a united states of America rather than a divided one. We feel more comfortable knowing they will work with both sides for the good of the country rather than push their own selfish agendas. I don’t understand why people wouldn’t want that. Why you wouldn’t want everyone to feel safer and more secure. Instead people keep regurgitating these conspiracy theories about how Biden and Harris will destroy the world. Really? That’s how arrogant we’ve become as a country to think our President and Vice President have so much power that they can ruin THE WORLD!
There are so many girls in this country right now who are looking at Kamala and thinking, “Wow, I can be Vice President of the United States of America when I grow up!” Don’t be the hater who ruins that for them. Don’t be the one to kill their dreams and bash someone who just literally opened so many doors for others. Be better than that. Build each other up. Celebrate the achievements of others. Practice what you preach. Don’t just talk about it, be about it. Your girls are looking up to you and when you look down on others they see that. Let them know they’re good enough. Let them know they have the strength, the intelligence, and the power to succeed. Let them know they’re worthy. Let them see you lead by example.
