I was more interested when we had more candidates that looked like America. I just think the process took out a lot of decent candidates with good messages. Castro was awesome on immigration. Beto showed that you could be honest about white privilege and be kind. It was a beautiful gesture when he took time off from his campaign to comfort the victims on both sides of the border after El Paso. Harris had some great ideas on dealing with maternal mortality. I just hate that it turned out this way and I really think part of the blame lies in the double standards that K talks about along with the primary calendar favoring white candidates.

In hindsight, I place some of the blame on the damn campaigns starting way too early at a time when people were desperate for an alternative to Trump to consider. If Booker, Harris, Castro, and O’Rourke had waited as late as even, say, fricking Bloomberg did then by the time they hit periods of intense scrutiny, it would be on the eve of votes when the early states could at least weigh in. Of course this doesn’t explain how fricking Mayor Pete has survived while those four didn’t.
