Kamala Harris attended a meeting with disability rights leaders and promptly made a fool of herself by announcing her pronouns and telling what color suit she’s wearing. By doing so, she was copying two obnoxious leftist trends and outing herself as a follower who can never be a serious leader.
I don’t need to tell you about the “announcing of the pronouns” trend because that’s been sickening us for years now. Another less common trend is for speakers to describe a little bit about their skin and hair coloring and their clothes for the visually impaired. I have friends who are blind, and I find it difficult to believe that this brief description really matters to them for the simple reason that, by virtue of being blind, they inhabit a mental world that usually isn’t big on colors. Theirs is more of an auditory world than a visual one.
These little announcements are pure virtue-signaling, highlighting the speaker’s exquisite sensitivity. They’re also a good way to force the issue of race on people who, by rights, don’t need to be burdened by such considerations. (Just think of Dave Chappelle’s brilliant black white supremacist shtick.)
