Vivek Ramaswamy

Like many black and brown-skinned immigrant undesirables (by law in the past) and first-generation somethings, Vivek Ramaswamy has had to grapple with the realities of what exactly makes a person of their profile redeemable.

He’s joined politics with an anti-black slant because he’s not dumb. He’s witnessed how non-whites are treated in this country, but more importantly, he’s had enough time to test out the easiest way a brown face earns a spot on the good side.

If anyone is bought and paid for, it’s probably Vivek Ramaswamy. A social cockroach who probably hasn’t had time to learn much about anything else (our history).

His whole act of a grumpy old man who believes in conspiratorial demagoguery makes it easy to see why he’ll say whatever he thinks will earn him a cookie.

His go-to thingy has been hypothesizing half-understood and incoherent ideas. He seems rather eager and or on a mission to regurgitate seemingly rehearsed talking points quickly before you interject.

He has managed to say so much at this point including completely opposing ideas.

He almost imagines that performing his mastery of the English language as a first-generation Indian American makes him look smart and will shield the long sentences from the scrutiny of substance.

I’m yet to meet a trustworthy fast talker, and I say this with a heavy heart.

Vivek Ramaswami strikes me as the kind of person who plays their notes fast enough to make you believe you heard a good-sounding melody. But that’s not gonna cut it for the Presidency now will it?
