  1. Well said. Lets just remember this past election

  2. I proud of American voters especially the black or brown citizens than you again.

    • They realize and should every election there is something to vote against, the donor and white nationalist party. I hope progressives come to the same realization, that protest voting or all the same non-voting has led us to the current Senate and Supreme Court, you have to vote every where every election.

    • So true 💯

  3. So they don’t trust their own party observer that has been there the whole time. 🤔. Okie dokie. And lewandoski and bondi will make a difference standing 6ft away. PA judge just grant trump’s campaign access to the counting facility. 🤣😅😂😅🤣

  4. If we don’t take back the Senate this time, there is still reason to hope!

    Picture the scene two years from now, during the 2022 midterms:
    Biden’s A.G. will be deep into proving Trump’s Administration was criminal, and stole from us.
    Several (more) of Trump’s goons will already be in prison, having been proved guilty in a court of law.
    And the GOP will be seen as complicit in Trump’s criminality.

    It’s interesting how proving people are criminals in a court of law, drives voter opinion.
    It will be a blowout…

  5. We had to do something to save ourselves and this country from trump and his team of racists. But we are done getting nothing for our vote.

    • Sparky McSpark ….how

    • There’s a second, more important vote to be made for Christ, ma’am. And that’s done with heart bowed to His wise, omniscient love.

    • @Sparky McSpark They are beginning to see the racket from which they emerged, in the light of the demands of the grace of God.

    • Black people aren’t the only ones who feel that way.
      I’m white Anglo Saxon Protestant male and the Republicans sure as H377 don’t have my back, and Democrats don’t exactly promote my interests either. Too much protecting ultra wealthy and giant corporations. Too much “privatize profits, socialize losses” in the financial world for one. WAKE UP DEMS: There’s money in the Green New Deal – Promote _THAT_

    • The Black Community is Due and that’s a fact ! The debt is owed !!! 😔
      But to be fair DJT Is an ENORMOUS Piece of Racist 💩 and that trash needed taking out !
      The man offends everything good and decent in this country. 🤷🏼‍♂️

    I’m surprised MAGAS haven’t stormed the Counting Building to physically stop them from counting. BLM BVM please please save us!!

    • @LivingTheDream They don’t have to now. They are eagerly spreading the “Kung Flu” and hatred. Satan will accept any weapon.

      (90%+ of BLM protests see no major crime)

    • Thats what Democrat’s do

    • LivingTheDream | November 5, 2020 at 3:07 PM | Reply

      @hawkturkey your statement isnt a helpful justification, here let me try it out

      Less than 2% of the tens of millions police encounters every year result in the use of force by the officer

      yes there have been peaceful protests, but over 550 declared riots, 37+ dead officers and counting , 25 + civilian deaths from them, and 2+ billions in damages , and this is data from 3 months ago…

    • If MAGAS storm the building and interfear with the vote count they all should get long prison terms. It would also disprove the BS that they are nonviolent. Spoilt right-wing white rich kids the lot of them.

      @Paul Wyatt as much as you want that to happen it won’t lol

  7. Right on! Well put!

  8. Such a waist of the court’s time and money. Just lose like a man !

    Nothing but the TRUTH 👏

  10. Black Americans have done their part for Biden, now Biden needs to do HIS part for Black Americans!!

    • wowwhatnow thosepeople | November 5, 2020 at 8:52 PM | Reply

      @Cowboy Bob & it’s those very votes that delivered this win for Biden…Face the facts…Without the black vote there would b not Biden presidency… Just ask Hillary…He better come thru with meaning legislation for blacks in particular or Harris will be seated next to Hillary

      @Oh Yes, Please! I’ll Have Another Bowl Of TDS! Over 71+plus million votes for the Democratic prez Biden, the biggest vote in American history !!! We Democrats are the majority & keep on getting bigger & bigger

  11. Thanks Black Community for loving and serving America as you have and continue to do!!!!

    • Ok Sally I think your heart in the right place, but, and I’m white, that comes over as if all Black folk are of one mind. Indeed the Black community just like the Latino, Asian and White communities are diverse communities with totally different values from each other. Just a point. Not trying be mean, suspect you voted with your heart, so love to you. You on the right path.

    • @James Thomas Joe Biden said Black people are all the same.

    • Librarian-at-Large | November 5, 2020 at 3:40 PM | Reply

      Thanks white community for standing with us and marching against racism to reveal to America how mean law enforcement is to black, brown, yellow red and poor white men. You have been heroes against racism since the Abolition movement and we appreciate all of you!

    • Ahhh, sweet 👍💕

    • @CMDRZero01 Trump deserves to be charged and sent to jail.

  12. Can you Believe the People who claim to be PATRIOTS wanting to stop counting VOTES??? how confused are these idiots anyway ? Patriots of what country ??? NOT AMERICA !

    • Michael Schwartz | November 5, 2020 at 3:55 PM | Reply


    • @SAW Gunner You obviously do not understand the Democratic process..Poll workers take an oath you never have…they work very hard and ..all ballots carefully checked snd rechecked…of course errors happen but are small and corrected…You should do as much in your life…Stop trying to stop Democracy…go to a dictator ship..

    • @SAW Gunner Ballots with no postmark WHICH HAVE ARRIVED IN TIME are accepted precisely because they ARRIVED IN TIME. Sometimes mail accidentally misses getting a date stamp. It is not the fault of thebperson mailing the ballot. It is irrelevant if the ballot has arrived in time and is valid in all respects. It does not indicate any nefarious behaviour on the part of the voter.

    • @SAW Gunner “The integrity of the vote is what makes it valuable” ??🤔🙄
      What do you Trump followers know about integrity??? And that statement right there is the biggest fallacy I have ever heard. I am a Washington DC born Navy Brat and I will tell you that it is our *communal democracy* that makes our votes valuable. Our votes are valuable because in this country, in this democracy, we can agree to disagree and make choices for our future free from the decisions of a few in power. I have family members who have died for your right to vote and for your vote to be counted as valid as an American citizen and as a human being. Maybe you should read the Constitution just once… you and your dear leader

    • ALL of them are Trump zombies. They stubble around blind.

  13. OK! Biden better have a black agenda because 2022 is around the corner.

    • Charles Joseph | November 5, 2020 at 4:03 PM | Reply

      If he does or any agenda that he is going to lay out is going to get shot down by the Republicans just like when President Obama was in office. This is why some of those senators should have been voted out. I.E. that dam turtle 🐢 in Klantucky…

    • @Charles Joseph it’s not so clear now, with Kamala and 2 indies

    • Did you vote for a Democrat senator?

    • Better have a POOR PEOPLE agenda.

    • Jeffrey Whitlock | November 5, 2020 at 4:37 PM | Reply

      I would not hold my breath Rob. Given his history and the probable Republican controlled Senate, he has the perfect excuse to not do anything. He supposed to meet with Ice Cube, and they need to invite McConnell. Cut some deal, make an exchange, like what happens when they pass budget deals and corporate bailouts. See, legislation gets passed when there the will.
      And Biden owes us if he wins for putting him there and for our forgiveness of his awful policies.

    🤔 vote for the guy who doesn’t have over 200 Russian connection

    • Do a web search for “Donald Trump’s Worst Deal”
      It’s the title of a New Yorker article about ONE OF THE ONLY TWO PROPERTIES THE TRUMP ORG. DIVESTED from after the 2016 election. It’s a convincing piece for the argument the property was A MONEY LAUNDERING OPERATION FOR THE IRANIAN REVOLUTIONARY GUARD. _Yep_

    • So true 💯

  15. Batman is Mexican | November 5, 2020 at 2:30 PM | Reply

    💥 remember when Trump called the coronavirus a political hoax against him now hundreds of thousands are deceased Russia are you listening

  16. I agree. They REALLY saved us this time though. Not just us, the world.

    • That’s giving a lot of credit to people fulfilling their civic duty and then being the last to be counted because their local elected and appointed officials don’t have their act together.
      Nevertheless, THANK YOU FOR VOTING.
      Hopefully there will be election reform and two years from now it will be easier to throw the Republican bums out

    • It’s not over yet.

    • Thank you !

  17. I hope ,now that the golfer in chief is going he can show those taxes .

    • January 21: New York indicts
      January 22: Arraignment – Gag order (so trump won’t poison the jury pool)
      January 25: Judge has warned trump 3 straight days to stop violating his bail terms
      January 26: Trump behind bars because he won’t shut up.

  18. As a white man, I agree 100%.

      now donate some money to poor black folks 👍👍

    • Andy Coll aka Scamp | November 5, 2020 at 2:58 PM | Reply

      No need to donate money, you understanding the situation, is priceless

    • @Alexander Mouse I’m all for reparations. There are many governments (state/federal) and companies that should be on the hook to make payments. Crowd sourcing it isn’t a terrible idea either. We need to fix inequality in this country and tax billionaires at higher rates.

    • We are USA citizens. No right no left no liberal. Just USA citizens .

  19. Say it loud ,—– I black and proud !!!

  20. Black people of America, the world salutes you!
