BLM Activists Demand Biden’s Fealty


But make no mistake: now that Biden’s won the election, he owes this country real racial justice reform.

He must start with the most obvious steps: executive orders that address the immediate need for federal remedies to protect Black and Brown citizens from police brutality; appointing a special prosecutor to investigate both criminal and civil rights violations in the Floyd, Taylor, Blake, Cole and Anderson cases. More broadly, Biden must recognize that poverty and racism are pandemics in their own right, each of which has been exacerbated by Covid-19. Beginning to remedy them will require not just an emergency economic stabilization package, but a national moratorium on foreclosures and evictions for the next 12 months, and a prioritization of funding for the communities of color hit hardest by the virus.

These demands are not coming from Kenosha alone, but from all across the country, where the Black Lives Matter movement – the largest social uprising in our nation’s history – has inspired a new generation of voters and activists. So while racial justice leaders may have helped Biden take back the White House, come January 2021, we’ll be reminding him exactly who got him there.

    Racist Marxists demand special favors because of skin color.

    Why are liberals silent on this? Liberals constantly demanded Trump denounce racism every 1/2 second.

    Why are liberals silent about Biden not denouncing racism of BLM?

    Can’t wait to see who emerges on top of this mutually abusive partnership.

    I think we can all hope that always organizing and supporting the violent protests will bite Dems hard in the ass at some point, but it just never seems to work out that way.  I don’t recall ever reading or hearing headlines about protesters ending up ringing a Democrat’s house.  Somehow Dem politicos point a finger or hold up a cartoon sign pointing at someone else and manage to get all of their followers to run in that direction.

    Black Jesus passed few if any reforms that helped any parts of the BLM platform, why ever would they expect his aged white sidekick to do it?
