Joe Biden And I Are ‘Representing Who America Really Is’ (Kamala Harris)

by birtanpublished on August 15, 2020

AND IT WAS A REAL POINT OF PRIDE AND JOY FOR ME TO BE WITH THOSE WOMEN ON THAT STAGE. >> WELL, I KNOW WE HAVE TALKED BEFORE ABOUT YOUR BELIEF THAT THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN A WOMAN ON THE TICKET, PERIOD, WHETHER

IT WAS GOING TO BE IN THE NUMBER ONE OR NUMBER TWO SPOT. CERTAINLY, YOU KNOW, WITH JOE BIDEN DECLARING THIS SPRING THAT SHOULD HE BECOME THE NOMINEE, HE WAS GOING TO PUT A WOMAN ON THE

TICKET WAS VERY EXCITING FOR THE MAJORITY OF THE ELECTORATE WOMEN IN THIS COUNTRY, AND YOU KNOW, AS THAT CONVERSATION CONTINUED, THERE WAS SOME TALK ABOUT WHETHER — WHO THAT WOMAN SHOULD

BE. SHOULD THAT BE A WOMAN OF COLOR, AND SPECIFICALLY A BLACK WOMAN. I WANT TO ASK YOU, DID YOU FEEL THAT JOE BIDEN NEEDED TO CHOOSE A BLACK WOMAN OR A WOMAN OF

COLOR AS HIS RUNNING MATE, AND IS THAT SOMETHING YOU TALKED TO HIM ABOUT AT ANY POINT IN THIS PROCESS? >> WELL, LET’S SIT BACK AND THINK ABOUT THIS.

JOE BIDEN HAD THE AUDACITY TO CHOOSE A BLACK WOMAN TO BE HIS RUNNING MATE. HOW INCREDIBLE IS THAT, AND WHAT A STATEMENT THAT IS ABOUT JOE BIDEN.

THAT HE DECIDED THAT HE WAS GOING TO DO THAT THING THAT WAS ABOUT BREAKING ONE OF THE MOST SUBSTANTIAL BARRIERS THAT HAS EXISTED IN OUR COUNTRY. AND THAT HE MADE THAT DECISION

WITH WHATEVER RISK THAT BRINGS. I THINK AS MUCH AS ANYTHING, IT’S A STATEMENT ABOUT THE CHARACTER OF THE MAN THAT WE’RE GOING TO ELECT AS THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

>> YEAH, I MEAN, YOU TALK ABOUT THAT AS A RISK. THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO HAVE ASKED ME, YOU KNOW, IF THEY THOUGHT JOE BIDEN WAS MAKING THE SAFEST CHOICE BY DOING THAT.

I CERTAINLY DON’T AGREE WITH THE PREMISE OF THAT QUESTION, BUT I WONDER WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THE RISK THAT THAT IS, YOU KNOW, THAT THAT IS THE CHOICE THAT HE MADE THAT HE DID CHOOSE YOU AND

HE IS MAKING A HISTORIC CHOICE. THERE’S NEVER BEEN A BLACK WOMAN NOMINATED FOR VICE PRESIDENT ON A MAJOR PARTY TICKET BEFORE. >> RIGHT. AND SO THAT IS A STATEMENT, I

THINK, ABOUT THE VISION THAT JOE BIDEN HAS ABOUT WHO WE ARE AS A NATION AND THE FUTURE OF OUR NATION. AND THAT’S ONE OF THE THINGS, FRANKLY, ABOUT WHO HE IS THAT

GIVES ME SUCH EXCITEMENT ABOUT THE BIDEN/HARRIS TICKET. BECAUSE THE BIDEN/HARRIS TICKET IS ABOUT AN AGENDA THAT IS ABOUT REPRESENTING WHO AMERICA REALLY IS AND KNOWING THAT AMONG US

THERE MAY BE THOSE WHO SEEMINGLY HAVE NOTHING IN COMMON BUT HAVE EVERYTHING IN COMMON. JOE BIDEN KNOWS THAT. AND IT IS ALSO ABOUT SAYING THAT THIS IS GOING TO BE AN

ADMINISTRATION, THE BIDEN/HARRIS ADMINISTRATION, THAT IS FOCUSED ON THE FUTURE OF OUR COUNTRY. MOTIVATED BY WHAT CAN BE UNBURDENED BY WHAT HAS BEEN. >> YOU TALKED ABOUT THAT, EVEN

DURING YOUR PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN. JUST TO THE IDEA OF WHAT THIS DOES FOR THE AMERICAN IMAGINATION, TO SEE SOMEBODY THAT COMES IN A PACKAGE LIKE

YOURS STANDING FOR THIS OFFICE. >> BUT ERRIN, LET ME ALSO SAY THIS. I AM NOT UNIQUE. THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE LIKE ME.

THERE ARE A LOT OF FOLKS WHERE I COME FROM, I COME FROM PEOPLE. AND THAT IS PART OF THE POINT. MAYBE IT IS FOR SOME TO STIMULATE THEIR IMAGINATION, BUT FOR OTHERS, WHAT WE KNOW IS THAT

THIS IS ACTUALLY WHO WE ARE. AND WHAT WE ARE. AND IT IS A STATEMENT THAT IS AN AFFIRMATION ABOUT WHO WE TRULY ARE. AND THIS, IN THE FACE OF THE

CURRENT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, WHO HAS SPENT FULL TIME TRYING TO SOW HATE AND DIVISION IN OUR COUNTRY. AGAIN, WHEN WE’RE LOOKING AT THIS ELECTION WHICH IS COMING UP

IN 80-SOMETHING DAYS, THERE’S A CLEAR CONTRAST BETWEEN THE CURRENT OCCUPANT OF THE WHITE HOUSE AND THAT ADMINISTRATION AND THE BIDEN/HARRIS TICKET. AND A LOT OF IT HAS TO DO WITH

NOT ONLY ABOUT UNITY BUT IT HAS TO DO ABOUT REALLY KNOWING WHO THE PEOPLE OF OUR COUNTRY ARE. AND BEING FOCUSED ON THEM, AND IT BEING ABOUT THEM, AND IT BEING ABOUT WORKING FAMILIES, IT

BEING ABOUT CHILD CARE, ABOUT MAKING SURE PEOPLE HAVE JOBS, THAT THEY HAVE HEALTH CARE. THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT REALLY
