Anita Hill to support her oppressor

Joe Biden

I don’t know that there is a way for the saga of Joe Biden and Anita Hill[1] to end well. But I doubt supporting him for president[2] is it.

Hill is, obviously, recognizing the reality of the two-party system in which she perceives Donald Trump is worse. And in some ways he is. But in other, equally important ways, Joe Biden is worse. This is not a step even toward mitigating oppression, let alone relieving it.
