What’s especially depressing to me as what I guess we’re now referring to as a Warren Democrat is that I honestly believe that she is where the majority of the Democratic Party actually is, but Democrats have this nasty habit of not believing in themselves or fretting over what other people will think of them. Democrats defeated themselves in this primary campaign, and it’s just…sad-making and all-too common a thing in this party and it needs to stop.

  1. Worth reading this Brittney Cooper thread on gender, “Black voter pragamatism”, and “a revolution for women”.
  2. Also worth reading this Data for Progress report on how sexism really did play into Warren’s campaign trajectory.
