All Woke Up: White liberals unhappy about Biden’s whiteness

Empower Wisconsin | April 27, 2020

Nothing eats at a woke white liberal like being forced to have to vote for an old white guy.

A recent poll by the Pew Research Center shows about 41 percent of all Democratic voters are bothered that their party’s nominee — former Vice President Joe Biden — is, well, Joe Biden.

Half of white respondents are uncomfortable with Biden’s whiteness. Black and Hispanic respondents, not so much. About 28 percent of African-Americans surveyed had a problem with the pale rider, and 30 percent of Hispanics thought Biden’s whiteness was an issue.

“The younger, more liberal, more highly educated, and whiter the respondent, the more likely they were to care about the candidate’s identity,” Reason’s Robby Soave wrote.

Apparently those polled had no problems with Biden’s handsy past, his weird stories about children playing with his leg hair, his hyper-aggressive behavior when confronted by heavy-set Iowans, or the fact that his cognitive issues may make him wholly unfit to serve as president.

But his age and whiteness, that’s a big problem for the painfully woke.
