Fellow white voters who, like me, are excited about the Biden-Harris ticket? Let’s remember:

1. The BIPOC community is NOT monolithic. Each individual has their own opinions on these two politicians, with many nuances.

2. Each of these politicians has their own flaws. While their policies and track records are quite different from those of Trump-Pence, the launch of the Biden-Harris ticket is just the beginning of a long, arduous road toward a more equitable and just America. They have a lot of difficult work to do, and so do we—individually and collectively.

3. It doesn’t matter how much you like Biden-Harris if voter registration, access to the ballot, and full and fair ballot counting are undermined by states and counties—because then Trump will win anyway. Place and keep constant pressure on your elected officials to do all they can to ensure every adult voice is heard this November.
