A United States senator vowing to oppose all nominees of a particular race? Could that happen in 2021? The answer is yes. It happened this week, in fact, when Democratic Senator Tammy Duckworth declared she would not support any white nominees for any administration positions. (The only exceptions, Duckworth said, would be for white nominees who are also lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer.) Duckworth said she would not stop until the Biden administration picked more Asian-American and Pacific Islanders for cabinet-level positions. After some sweet talk from the White House, Duckworth gave in, but the episode offered a troubling preview of the future of identity politics.
