PTM: Kamala Harris and the Power of Symbolism
Jemar and Tyler are back to discuss what everyone is talking about: the appointment of Senator Kamala Harris as the Vice Presidential nominee of the Democratic Party.
They discuss the inevitable reality of racism and misogynoir that has already risen up against her, the concerns about her policies, and how voters interpret her progressive record.
But most importantly, they discuss what it means to be in the tension of symbolism and structural change. How do we balance our desire to see “firsts” and the imperative of actually changing the systems that we live in? This is an important conversation, fam!
