With Kamala Out, Democrats Face Likelihood of Next DNC Debate Being “All White”

With Kamala Harris out, Democrats face a high likelihood of the next DNC debate being made up of only white candidates, a potentially disastrous PR move for the party that is supposed to be built around “diversity.”

So far the 6 candidates who have qualified for the debate are all white – Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Tom Steyer and Amy Klobuchar.

Cory Booker will not make the cut and Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Yang are below the cut but could possibly qualify depending on if they can meet the polling requirement in the next week.

Booker spoke out on the lack of diversity in the race amid Kamala Harris’ exit during an appearance with Chris Hayes and said “We’re spiraling towards a debate stage that could have 6 people with no diversity whatsoever.”

Julian Castro, who will also not qualify for the next debate, wrote:

The media’s flawed formula for “electability” has pushed aside women and candidates of color.

Our party’s diversity is our strength, and it’s a shame that we’re headed for a December debate without a single person of color.

Many other liberals on Twitter also chimed in.
