Here comes the ‘or else’
Black Lives Matters wants their payment. The group that helped foment the violence that saw parts of cities across the country burn is making it clear that Joe Biden owes them.
From the Federalist:
BLM Co-founder Patrisse Cullors sent a letter to former vice president Joe Biden and his Vice Presidential Nominee Kamala Harris congratulating them on winning the presidential election and demanding a meeting to discuss BLM’s “expectations” for their administration.
“In short, Black people won this election,” she said, noting the group’s efforts to “vote and organize.” “Alongside Black-led organizations around the nation, Black Lives Matter invested heavily in this election.”
Cullors claimed that Biden and Harris, who both ran on a platform that mentioned addressing systemic racism, owed it to the movement to act on their rhetoric and further the work of “Black liberation.”
“We want something for our vote,” she said. “We want to be heard and our agenda to be prioritized.”
