    when my son was born .... we were told that my wife could chose either black or white on his birth certificate.... but not both ... on his birth certificate has he is Black ... I never get any credit 😂.

    America is not ... and doubt ever will be a level playing field racially .... we have all races of people in the country but each race is looked at differently when it comes to most everything ... lending interest rate .. corporate America and ect ect ect ... if we ever have straight out racial equality across the board... I will be shocked

    Not only did I not approve of Biden picking Harris ... she is very progressive ... but neither did I agree with Biden guarantee to specifically to pick a Black female as VP ... having the best candidate and the most qualified VP is what is America’s best interest ... I don’t think we got the most qualified candidate as VP right now ... we have a cop - prosecutor .. that will throw black men under the jail for a bag of weed.. and smile about it

    Eric Swalwell, who literally banged a Chinese Spy, delivers the articles of impeachment. If you haven't noticed dems are turning America into a Banana Republic.

    As far as I can remember, Joe Biden committed to name a woman only. Pretty much all the leading candidates were women at the time like Harris, Rice, Warren, Klobuchar, etc.

    Kamala Harris is not my first choice, but not quite the boogeyman that a lot of people seem to think she is either.

    The bottom line is the majority of people in the US voted for the ticket with Harris on it.

    “If I’m elected president, my — my cabinet, my administration will look like the country,” Biden said in response to a question about how a Biden administration would handle women’s issues. “And I commit that I will, in fact, appoint a — I’ll pick a woman to be vice president. There are a number of women who are qualified to be president tomorrow. I would pick a woman to be my vice president.”

    In fact, when MSNBC’s Joy Reid asked Biden on July 20 if he would commit to picking a Black woman, he didn’t.

    “I am not committed to naming any but the people I’ve named, and among them there are four Black women,” Biden said.

    You and others are the people making it about her being a transgender.

    Have you looked at her resume and qualifications, maybe compared it against other assistant secretaries?

    You know it is possible she is qualified for the job despite being a transgender person, not because of it.

    America's billionaires have grown $1.1 trillion richer during the pandemic

    https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/26/business/billionaire-wealth-inequality-poverty/index.html

    Cool. The ultra-wealthy people who disproportionately benefited from the K-shaped recovery can afford to pay a higher tax rate.

    Oh no. Some billionaires aren't able to hoard as much money on the backs of the poor and middle class.

    More than 8 million Americans fell into poverty during the final six months of 2020, according to real-time estimates published by economists at the University of Chicago, University of Notre Dame and the Lab for Economic Opportunities.

    The current wealth disparity is simply not sustainable.

    Over here he would be called "a young man" but a very small minority would classify him as "mulatto" which is not a pejorative word.

    that is a good thing IMO ... when he was a child .. he asked me should he identify as White or Black ... I told him ... there is no correct answer as he is white and black ... or biracial ... but I told him when he grew up a little more he would make his own choice as to what to identify... they require a choice on job applications and many things here .. it hasn’t been easy for him being biracial .. he has gotten remarks from black and white people in his childhood ... not so much these days though

    Over here there is NO such thing as requiring to put a classification of your race in ANYTHING.

    Our Prime Minister for the past 4 years is of Indian descent. No one ever mentions that. I don't like him or his useless policies, not because he's of Indian descent, but because he's a left wing Socialist. His policies on Covid has been disastrous especially in the past month. Today nearly 300 dead. When you consider that Portugal (10 million) has 33 times less population than the US, that would be the equivalent of almost 10,000 people dying in the US in one day.

    António Costa... Portugal's PM...

    He should be very proud to be part-White (and your son). Lest we forget.

    Good day.

    Democrats exist by using identity politics to divide people. You can't have equality and equity of outcomes. Some people are incompetent despite their degrees and outward appearance.

    Like him or not, Portugal has become more eco-sensitive. I have my doubts that more lives would have been saved by former right-wing populists that brought about significant rises in poverty and unemployment.

    You're socialist PM brought Portugal back from the brink of catastrophe and provided the largest national economic growth of the century.
