Pete Buttigieg vowed to use his “privilege of whiteness” to advocate for black Americans as he struggles to woo African American voters, a demographic he needs to win over to secure the Democratic presidential nomination.
The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate sent a fundraising email Friday with a subject line of “Seneca Falls,” referring to the first women’s rights convention in 1848.
The article goes on to state the following:
Buttigieg said Seneca Falls showed it is “important that people from every walk of life stand up for each other,” and, as a male candidate, it is “particularly important that this campaign be outspoken about women’s equality.”
“It’s why I welcome my obligation as a candidate with the privilege of whiteness on my side to speak about systemic racism in this country,” the email said.
