    WHINY LIBERALS=Classify everyone according to their race and not as an individual: Always loudly acknowledge the skin color of every person you talk to and make it the main subject of the conversation. If you are white, do not have any black friends: This may trick you into thinking you aren't racist. To help atone for our racist past, try some casual segregation: Create safe spaces where everyone is segregated by race, gender, and gender identity. It's the only way to achieve unity. Anyone who objects to this is racist. Always have extremely low expectations of minorities: Be sure to constantly remind them they can never overcome their circumstances without your help. Vote for policies that sound virtuous, no matter how much they actually harm people of color: Always vote for policies with virtuous-sounding names, even if they destroy black and brown communities. Appearance is everything!

    I know we're only allowed to call European-Americans articulate. People got criticized for referring to candidate Obama as an "young articulate black man," but, wow, Mr. Kenyatta is articulate. He knows what he wants to say, he knows how to say it concisely, confidently and convincingly, which makes me think there is nothing artificial or misleading in his words. I assume his actions and votes as a state senator have reflected the vision of the direction this country should take that he expresses in words. That will be checked during the campaign. When asked, "Why you?" other candidates should be ready to explain why they'd be better than Kenyatta as a U.S. senator. He deserves serious consideration by PA voters. Thanks to Mr. Capehart for introducing him to us.

    You need an Education Program with Moonshot level funding. The youth of America need the best Education available, which should be a right. It’s as important as healthcare, policing, you name it. It offers solutions to all those issues. And smart people just don’t support Fascism or Racism. That’s just a fact. Offer them THAT, and explain WHY it’s an urgent issue ✌️

  • Kenster

    At the end of the day, the main dividing line in PA (as in most states) is CLASS and intergenerational POVERTY. That is why folks like Kenyatta and Fetterman are really important to have in politics at a high level (state or federal). The Southern Strategy duped poor southern whites into supporting conservative and even fascist movements by making them feel special somehow simply for being white, and yet they mostly remained stuck in poverty, and were materially only slightly better off than poor Blacks in the South. And the reactionary MAGA ideology essentially copied the Southern Strategy, just with more dog-whistels and fewer blatant slurs. Lower-class whites in remote towns and villages need to realize this and see through this. And as Kenyatta mentioned in this interview, that is exactly what happened in Georgia! 🤍

    MY ADVICE to Democrats running for Congress in 2022: Trump voters are BEFRIENDING grassroots progressives and black grassroots. Your base is not solid and Trump is not on the ballot in 2022. Democrats better make sure grassroots progressives & black grassroots vote Democrat in 2022 or they will stay home or vote 3rd party.

    I think Fetterman would be much more electable to the overall population of Penn, especially swing voters. Fetterman has already won a statewide election as Lt. Governor also.

    • Kenster
      Kenster

      I was just thinking that. But in a way, they each represent their own half of the state, Fetterman would appeal to the western half. These two men are both valuable assets to PA politics at a high level, whether state or federal.
