Putting the first Black woman and the first Asian American woman on a major-party ticket at a moment when the country is facing a racial reckoning was historic to say the least. Senator Biden, drove home the importance of this moment in his remarks.
“This morning, all across this nation, little girls woke up, especially little Black and Brown girls who so often may feel overlooked and undervalued in our society,” Biden said. “But today, maybe, just maybe, they’re seeing themselves for the first time in a new way.”
Senator Harris highlighted President Trump’s failed response to the pandemic, with the result being illness, death and unemployment.
“America is crying out for leadership, yet we have a president who cares more about himself than the people who elected him, a president who is making every challenge we face even more difficult to solve,” Harris said,
