Without the resounding support of Black people, we would be saddled with a very different electoral outcome. In short, Black people won this election. Alongside Black-led organizations around the nation, Black Lives Matter invested heavily in this election. “Vote and Organize” became our motto, and our electoral justice efforts reached more than 60 million voters. We want something for our vote.

We want to be heard and our agenda to be prioritized. We issue these expectations not just because Black people are the most consistent and reliable voters for Democrats, but also because Black people are truly living in crisis in a nation that was built on our subjugation. Up until this point, the United States has refused to directly reckon with the way it devalues Black people and devastates our lives. This cannot continue. Black people can neither afford to live through the vitriol of a Trump-like Presidency, nor through the indifference of a Democrat-controlled government that refuses to wrestle with its most egregious and damnable shame.

Nothings says devalue black lives like 3 in 10 black pregnancies ending in an abortion. 89% of black murders being committed by other blacks. 7 in 10 black children being raised by single moms. 7% high school drop out rate for black students.

I remember when they outlawed Amos and Andy because it was said the show hurt the black image.
IMO nothing hurts the black image any more than the Maury Povich show.

Black Lives Matter: We ‘Invested Heavily In This Election’ And ‘We Want Something For Our Vote’


“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.”

Despite an entire summer of violent protests, riots, and police reform in cities and states all around the nation in the name of racial justice and BLM, Cullors claimed the “United States has refused to directly reckon with the way that it devalues Black people and devastates our lives,” calling for even more progressive action.

“This cannot continue. Black people can neither afford to live through the vitriol of a Trump-like Presidency nor through the indifference of a Democrat-controlled government that refuses to wrestle with its most egregious and damnable shame,” she said.

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.”

We have Affirmative Action, Integration, and have spent a sh1t ton of money trying to improve the status of blacks and bring them up to a standard where they no longer need help to attain the America Dream.

Many have attained that dream. Many have not.

There will always be the have nots of every race.
It is the have not's screaming for a free dream, but he dream is not free. It requires hard work and study.
I do not know how we can get the dream for the have nots when all we have already done has never achieved it.

BLM is just a front for AntiFa. There aren't any black people in it, it's all ugly white girls that Daddy didn't love. Best of luck Patrisse Cullors, but you better start pan-handling for quarters because Joe and Kamala don't owe you anything. Dominion Voting Systems are getting that fat wad.💲
