I despise identity politics. To reduce one’s worth or meaning to an arbitrary feature or characteristic like skin color is the antithesis of progress.
It’s no secret that leftists and Democrats love their identity politics. They’re always identifying things like racism or sexism under the cynical idea that it’ll help unite voters under their banner.
The truth of the matter is that identity politics, by definition, don’t unite. They divide.
Frankly, the content of one’s character and beliefs should always be more important than the color of one’s skin or ethnic background.
Those are just some of the reasons why seeing a legislator like Caleb Hanna rise in prominence is so exciting.
