Sen. Cory Booker, who just recently dropped out of the 2020 White House race, declared Monday on SiriusXM’s The Joe Madison Show that he doesn’t believe two white men should be on the Democrat ticket.
“No matter what, whoever the next nominee is for our party, they better have an authentic connection to the African-American community and inspire, and I use this word very purposely, trust,” Booker stated. “Because the Democratic Party has done a lot of things — mass incarceration is an example — that doesn’t necessarily align with the interests of African-American communities. I was excited in this election to see so many young folks, people of all ages in the black community really beginning to recognize their power.
“But we have a lot more work to do,” he added. “I’m hoping that the next nominee is someone who has that connection. I don’t think we should have two white men on the ticket anymore.”
The party that preaches diversity now has only four old white people as candidates for president. Awkward.
