And no one in the field has picked it up as vigorously since his exit. Even when the dire need for it is so clear.
Folks really believe that communities of color will do the heavy lifting of voting and that Joe Biden’s gaffes are our biggest threat to that. But communities of color, especially Black folks, are failed by the lack of pressure and policy leveraged to make America safe for us.
It is done for the price of White comfort. And there is no Instagram video with a celebrity that changes how little we see the leaders of the the party rise up in indignation and do something with their power for its most powerful voting block. That is the danger.
You would be amazed at the sheer verbal stupidity we could be fine with if folks were willing to put their power at risk for justice, consistently.
