The professor in question is Laurence Tribe and if you’ve ever looked at his Twitter feed, you know how far left he is. He made a big mistake with his fellow progressives here.

Harvard prof apologizes for saying Biden VP pick should center on their ‘results’
Harvard Law School professor Laurence Tribe faced backlash and has apologized for his comments about presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s running mate choice, saying that when Biden picks his running mate, he should do it based on each contender’s qualifications and reputation, not skin color.
Tribe was among the signers of a letter addressed to Biden, urging the vice president to choose Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) as his running mate. While America currently faces “lawless authoritarianism,” Warren would help rid the country of “the two twin pathogens of Trump and Trumpism.”
“Imagine her on stage debunking Mike Pence or needling ‘President Tweety’,” the letter stated.
Tribe said in an interview with the Washington Post that it would be “symbolic” to choose an African American running mate. However, he added, “I think African Americans above all would be the first to say they are more interested in results than cosmetics.”
These statements and the letter have resulted in outrage from Democrats across social media platforms.
Critics claim that Tribe is overlooking the accomplishments of black female candidates such as Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).
Bakari Sellers, former South Carolina state representative, tweeted that Tribe made “snide remarks about the preparedness of the black women being vetted for VP.”…
In response to the pushback, Tribe apologized for his “choice of words” on Twitter soon after the Washington Post published his interview.
