>Louisiana’s first Black senator Jesus Christ it’s 2022.


We need young, dynamic, charismatic, relatable Millennial/Gen Z candidates like him (and Alexandra Hunt from PA) running for office from the local level all the way up to Pres. We have so many smart, active people from the younger generations. I can’t see us making changes unless we go into public office in waves, pushing out the old people still in charge. If I was in LA, I would vote for this man. I’d vote for Hunt if I was in PA. For the love of all things living, we can’t wait to inherit this country when we’re old and decrepit and out of touch with the younger generations after us. If we can’t take the country by revolution, we need to force these incumbents out of office by offering something new and better that will motivate the younger, more educated people to vote.


I’d vote for this man for just about anything. The pot commercials were attention-getters, but go listen to him speak. His passion, his enthusiasm for making things better, is fucking beautiful. Hope he can get elected & do that shithole state some good.
