No one is arguing this! Quit trying to change the narrative to “omg racism!” This is what lost Hillary the election: people see right through your game.
Nobody is arguing that Obama shouldn’t be paid for his speeches because he is black… they’re arguing he shouldn’t be doing $400,000.00 speeches for Wall Street because he used to be the President of the United States and claimed to be a progressive icon when really he was just the first black neoliberal president.
The argument is the same one that was made against Hillary: it’s not wrong because she’s a woman, it’s wrong because it’s a revolving door of making a profit off of your time in government. It looks like a payoff.
This is why you and the Democrats will continue to lose: you are spineless. When it comes to corporatism and corruption, there is no difference between a Democrat and a Republican. So why should people vote for the Democrat? At least Republicans don’t hide the fact that they just want to give money to themselves and their friends.
