I am literally sitting here because of people — marchers in Alabama and volunteer lawyers in New Jersey — who saw it as their affirmative duty to pursue justice.
Remarks as Prepared for Delivery: Sen.
Cory Booker

A shining example from a top student at the Obama School of Identity Politics. Senator Booker barely mentions race in this short bio section, but he makes his point emphatically.

Anyone who wants to even consider running for office should take note. Personal stories matter — especially insofar as they connect you to other people and the bigger picture — and they allow you to engage in identity politics w/o the loaded language of identity politics.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
