Social Justice demands that Joe Biden immediately resign as President
Joe Biden's first act as President of the United States must also be his last
One of the arguments in favor of Joe Biden’s election as President of the United States must be his experience as both a United States Senator from Delaware and as Vice President of the United States during the regime of Barack Obama, which amounts to over four decades working in the U.S. government for Mr. Biden. It would not be incorrect to say that he has seen it all, done it all, and knows how to work with both Democrats and Republicans to get things moving.
But that experience is solely the result of the white male privilege that propelled him to those positions.
If not for the patriarchal and racist society of early-70’s America, would Biden have been elected to the U.S. Senate in the first place, or might it have gone to an intelligent, hardworking, person (probably a woman, possibly transgender) of color? It’s impossible to say, because such a person did not and would not have received the opportunities that Biden did. If not for him riding the far more impressive coattails of Obama and Kamala Harris to the White House would he have ever been elected Vice President or President?
This is not to deny that Biden certainly overcame his own obstacles in his life, but that is obviously more a function of his whiteness and maleness than any personal talent or virtue that he might possess in overcoming adversity.
And it’s also true that Joe Biden has been an ally to women, people of color, and the LGBTQ+ community—even when he hasn’t, because Facebook/Instagram and USA Today have unsullied his reputation by now declaring any claims that legislation he pushed in the 90’s led to mass incarceration of black Americans are categorically false. The claim that Biden’s legislation was racist is itself racist and furthers the cause of white supremacy that propelled Biden to prominence in the first place.
Regardless, if Joe Biden is truly an ally to women, to people of color, and to the LGBTQ+ community, his first act after taking the oath of office to become the 46th President of the United States will be to resign effective immediately to make way for the 47th President of the United States, Kamala Harris: The first woman, the first South Asian, and the second African-American person to be President.
What America needs now is someone who can speak for all of us, except white supremacists. Joe Biden, who was propelled to a position of battling white supremacy for his entire public career by white supremacy, cannot be that person. His whiteness is a celebration of white supremacy, and is itself an incitement to violence against women, people of color, and the LGBTQ+ community.
Mr. Biden, we thank you for your service, but you must step aside to strike a final blow against your own ingrained white supremacy to save the country.
