We have to get away from this type of politics. I see people big upping this based solely on the fact that she is his wife and is expected to ‘continue his legacy’ of devoting 101% of his energy to the Democrat Party’s agenda and 0% to a black agenda for residents in Baltimore who put her husband in power. I see some big upping this because she is a black woman or a soror… the same reason many black women supported Kamala Harris without so much as a glimpse at her record.. Nobody can point to or are even asking about his wife’s politics, specifically what she will do to improve the lives of black people in Baltimore. Most of these black faces in high places of the Dem Party are there to push a Democrat agenda, not ours.
