The Morning After: Race or Gender? Neither


The Morning After: Race or Gender? Neither.

Ru Freeman

Gloria Steinem, writing an op ed in the New YorkTimes yesterday, the day after droves of older people turned out to vote for the status quo in New Hampshire, hands her support over to Hillary Clinton. She claims this is because of her qualifications, or the "experience argument" that we've come to know and loathe, not her gender, and that she is not anti-Obama. Why then is her entire piece an argument for why we should vote for this white woman over that black man?
