Joe Biden said he will select a black woman for VP.?

Would that make Kamala Harris an Affirmative Action choice by specifically naming a race and gender before choosing the person?

Update:

Okay, let me rephrase that: By saying "I'm only going to pick a woman." He excluded 159.4 million men right out of the gate. Does that appear to be pandering rather than truly wanting the best person for the job? I'm not saying she isn't capable, I'm asking if you're okay with excluding 159 million people based on gender alone.

    It’s not okay to exclude so many good ppl. Inslee would have been better than her he could solve global warming which is a huge crisis. Many other good candidates left out bc of their race and gender.

    Harris is horribly corrupt. I’m not thrilled about this decision to choose a vp based solely on race without seeing if they’re fit to lead. It’s corrupt.

    Because his short list was almost entirely  "ethnic" females , part of that charge is likely to stick .

    And in todays America ,that indicates tacit support for the BLM movement and its bigoted extremism .

    Possibly. His other choices included Tammy Baldwin, Karen Bass, Tammy Duckworth, and Elizabeth Warren. I think he made a good choice given. She's a senator, a former candidate and opponent, and Trump had also donated to her Attorney General of CA campaign before he was president, so I don't think it had much to do with affirmative action. She is very qualified. It terms of demographics, I don't see who he would have picked otherwise - Sanders? lol

    She was already deemed more than capable as a candidate.  She got there on her qualifications first.

    Biden NEVER stated he would select a black woman, he merely stated he would chose a woman for his VP.

    "At a Democratic primary debate in March, the former vice president pledged to pick a woman as his running mate.

    “If I’m elected president, my — my cabinet, my administration will look like the country,” Biden said in response to a question about how a Biden administration would handle women’s issues. “And I commit that I will, in fact, appoint a — I’ll pick a woman to be vice president. There are a number of women who are qualified to be president tomorrow. I would pick a woman to be my vice president.”

    No, he only said he would choose a woman. And if you want to see a token VP, look no further than Mike Pence.
