Before anything, I’m a woman of God. Closely afterwards, I’m a black woman. Then I’m a daughter, sister, friend, choir member, sorority sister, and so on. We identify ourselves as so many things nowadays and we tend to forget to prioritize which identifier matter most. After seeing that Kamala Harris was the first black woman to be on a major party presidential ticket, I had nothing but positive thoughts as a black woman myself. After a year of many racial tensions, this is a slap in the face to racism. This news shows that even though America is not over racism, Kamala still made it to the top.
Regardless of what political party you’re voting for, you have to give Kamala her props. This lady worked hard to get where she is now. She was California’s first female attorney general, district attorney, and elected to the Senate. And now, she has the potential to be the Vice President of the United States. Isn’t that what we’re all doing, working to be on top? She has leveled up and shown the entire country that she will not be counted out. I, for one, am glad to witness such a big turn around. To go from bowing out of the race to being asked to be the running mate with Biden shows us all that it’s not over until God says it’s over.
How many times did you throw in the towel, only for God to tell you to pick it back up? If you won’t answer, I will and it’s definitely too many times to count. We all have a Kamala in us as women who want something out of life. We work hard, we get overwhelmed, we quit, we start back, we prevail. I’m hoping that her and Biden win, but even if they don’t, this is a message to get back in the race and give it your all. As the saying goes, rest if you must, but don’t quit. You never know, you may just be the Vice President of the free world.
