You are assuming for the purpose of representation. That is where your racism is. All the Black women being considered are just as qualified, if not more so than the white women. So your assumption that picking a Black woman would indicate it was simply only for representation is so disrespectful and racist. That would be like syaing "Let's not pick a woman because it would be just for representation". To be honest, white women like you who claim to fight for womens rights often drop the ball when the issue does not benefit other white women. Absolutely shameful.
