TSU President Glover 'outraged' by Joe Biden campaign VP pick controversy
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) -- Tennessee State President Glenda Glover has fired off an angry open letter to the campaign of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
Former Senator Chris Dodd, a member of the panel helping Biden choose his vice presidential running mate, touched off a political fire storm last week when he questioned whether Biden VP front-runner Senator Kamala Harris was a viable candidate.
Dodd wondered if Harris would be loyal to Biden given the way she aggressively attacked him in the primaries.
The Senator’s supporters blasted Dodd for suggesting Harris was too ambitious.
In her letter released yesterday, Dr. Glover said all Americans should be “outraged by the commentary that a qualified African-American woman is ‘too ambitious’” to be considered for the vice presidency.
Glover asserted that, historically, “references to Black women as ‘overly ambitious’ have been code words designed to marginalize Black women.”
