An Observation

Please note:

1. "You are holding Kamala Harris, for example, to standards, scrutiny, and shaming to which white men who hold her positions (or even worse ones) are never held. I see you."


2. "Kamala Harris is above criticism! She is perfect and you are not allowed to have valid criticisms of Black women!"

are not the same thing. They are different things!

And if you read someone making the first point, but accuse them of making the second point, you are an asshole who is deliberately misrepresenting their point in order to deflect accountability for engaging in transparent double-standards.
