    Presidential-elect Biden sure thank his lucky stars that Black voters brought out the vote !!! President-elect Biden must do more than give lip service to Black voters ! When he said to Black voters ” I have your back.” – He must actively, legislatively and urgently have the collective back of Black voters nationwide. The time for redress for Black people in America is long, long overdue !!! Turning out the Black Vote was a herculean task. It took a lot of back-breaking work to locate, encourage and mobilize Black people to exercise their civic duty, their right to vote ! Now a significant percentage of Black people know the power of their vote and that their vote is power. So President-elect Biden remember your words to Black America – “I have your back because you had mine.” No lip service this time. No betrayal of Black America will go unchecked this time!!! President-elect Biden take heed and deliver on those words !!!

  5. What a great episode! Hearing her talking about having 100% voter turnout was wow. Knowing how hard everyone had to work to make that happen 🙌🏼

  6. on Meachum has been dropped by MSNBC because he wrote a speech for Joe Biden. This is ridiculous. His voice added authenticity and passion.
    Let MSNBC know how you feel.

    The NY Times Morning Briefing has an interesting thought experiment this morning. Here is part of it:
    “The political scientist Brendan Nyhan has often responded to events during the Trump presidency by asking a question: What would you say if you saw it in another country?
    “Let’s try that exercise now. Imagine that a president of another country lost an election and refused to concede defeat. Instead, he lied about the vote count. He then filed lawsuits to have ballots thrown out, put pressure on other officials to back him up and used the power of government to prevent a transition of power from starting.
    “How would you describe this behavior? It’s certainly anti-democratic. It is an attempt to overrule the will of the people, ignore a country’s laws and illegitimately grab political power.
    “President Trump’s efforts will probably fail, but they are unlike anything that living Americans have experienced. “What we have seen in the last week from the president more closely resembles the tactics of the kind of authoritarian leaders we follow,” Michael Abramowitz, the president of Freedom House, which tracks democracy, told The Times. “I never would have imagined seeing something like this in America.”
    “It is “one of the gravest threats to democracy” the country has faced, Ryan Enos, a Harvard social scientist, wrote yesterday. He added in an email, “The result is crystal clear and, yet, the incumbent is creating ambiguity by baseless claims.”
