The Inherent Racism of the Chelsea Clinton PR Campaign

If you think that Chelsea Clinton is everywhere on mainstream media, you're not alone. The New York Post has a nice piece, but a casual search of the internet will reveal Chelsea's fabulousness in a Variety of ways.  She has joined the "conversation" about breast feeding, how brave.  She has also weighed in on sexism, Trump's kids, and how she is fighting President Trump. All this is reported with either breathless admiration for a young one (she's 37) so brave, or all of the intellectual depth of the high school cheerleading squad.

The problem is that it's racist. Why? Because she is crowding out the young progressive voices of LGBTQP POCs who are not being heard.  Who are these people you ask? Well, how should I know? Their voices are being squelched by the unending trumpeting of the next coming of Queen Hillary.  How do we know that more deserving voices aren't being heard? Well, they're persons of color, aren't they? Who could possibly more deserving?

If you are a progressive or Democrat, you should demand that media stop its fawning adulation of Chelsea's white privilege to make space for proud persons of color.  So typical of whites to take up all the space available; its like the slaughter of Native Americans all over again.
