"We're spiraling towards a debate stage that potentially- we're still fighting to get on it, but could have six people with no diversity whatsoever," Booker said during an interview on MSNBC. "The way this is shaping up, especially with the rules of the DNC, it is preferencing millionaires and billionaires and a lot of other things that don't ever translate into viability in Iowa."
Liberal activists decried the potential "catastrophic" all-white debate stage amid the fallout of Harris' withdrawal, some calling it "sickening" and blaming the "implicit racism and sexism of 'electability.'"
At this point, we have 7 Democrats qualified for the December debate stage and they are all white. This is sickening.— Jim Kessler (@ThirdWayKessler) December 3, 2019
No matter your candidate, you have to recognize that going from the most diverse field ever in January to a potentially all-white debate stage in December is catastrophic.
The implicit racism and sexism of "electability" is deeply damaging to democracy.— Leah Greenberg (@Leahgreenb) December 3, 2019
If Kamala Harris is dropping out today, as is being reported, that means--among other things--that no candidates of color are yet slated for the December debate. Six white candidates have qualified. Folks, that's a huge red flag, and we need to talk about it.— Charlotte Clymer🏳️🌈 (@cmclymer) December 3, 2019

Sounds to me like the Hafrican usurper that proceeded President Trump has soured a lot of the American electorate on “persons of color” running 1/3 of the government.
The Kenyanesian Usurper preceded President Trump.
He also set a dangerous precedent.
Since the usurpation the GOP has run three ineligible candidates and the Democrats two.
When did the Dems find someone capable of consternation in their party? Im calling BS on this. They arent smart enough to get by constipation of the brain.
Back to their roots. The democrat party founded the KKK
It’s OK libs - you just need to accept the fact that all of your candidates are losers.
Opens the Door for Michelle my belle
we need to talk about it. Charlotte Clymer
Yes, by all means, lets have a national conversation about it.
These people and their racial preoccupation are beyond pathetic.
Do you suppose they would have the same consternation if there were six POC candidates left and no white ones?
So they pay Cory or Julian (or Yang or Tulsi) to stay in the race even though they have no chance of winning.
They just need to do what happens everywhere anyway - designate an affirmative action podium and fill it with whomever they wish.
The gap-toothed hippo comes to mind. Donna Brazile can feed her answers through an earpiece.
Wait, isn’t Pocahontas still running?
Or they find a tribe that will adopt Warren.

Oh My GOD! These people are pathetic.
Just wait until its down to three white guys all over 77 and older.
Snowflakes are about to detonate!
