If there was ever a case against affirmative action, it would be the sitting vice president.
All of the things opponents of race quotas say — that they inspire mediocrity, lead to lower standards, and set unqualified people up for failure — are precisely what we’re seeing in the shockingly poor job performance of Kamala Harris.
President Biden has admitted he chose her as his running mate, first and foremost, because she is a woman. “I’ll pick a woman to be vice president,” he declared during a Democratic primary debate.
