South Bend mayor and 2020 hopeful Pete Buttigieg will continue its efforts to try to reach to black voters in a new fundraising E-Mail, where he says he welcomes the “obligation to speak as a candidate with the privilege of whiteness on my side” against the systemic racism.

In the Friday E-Mail divided by Political reporter Daniel Strauss, Buttigieg began with the commemoration of the 171st anniversary of the Seneca Falls Convention, the first women’s rights convention in the United States, and praised the historical participant, Frederick Douglass, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott, which he would help to pave the credits for the way to earn women the right to vote, ownership, and run for political office. He also expressed that he is “running proud” “in addition to half a dozen formidable women.”

“But for all our progress, we know that the work set in motion in the year 1848 remains unfinished today,” Buttigieg wrote. “We have not yet realised the promise of Seneca Falls, when decisions about reproductive freedom dictated by male politicians or when women are still not paid the same as a man-no matter whether it is a worker or a member of the women’s national soccer team.”

The 37-year-old candidate also stressed that women of color, especially “stay, be disproportionately disadvantaged.”

“As important as it is for women in this country in the way, it is also important for people from all walks of life Buttigieg stand for each other” explains. “It is why, as a man running for President, it is especially important to be in this campaign, the outspoken on the equality of women.”

He continued: “It is the reason why I welcome my talk of duty as a candidate with the privilege of whiteness on my side, about the systemic racism in this country. The submission of a Douglass Plan to the women and men of Black America, named in honor of a Black man, the common thing with the women in America.”
