One of the things that I have come to learn over the course of my life is that there are some people that will turn on you in a second.
For example, there was a relative of mine a while ago that would once a month want to borrow fifty dollars from me for whatever reason. I would oblige and then one day I couldn’t do it.
This person went ballistic on me and for whatever reason, I haven’t spoken to this person since. It is sad to see stuff like that happen, although when it comes to situations like this involving liberals it is almost unavoidable. You have so many different people that think that so many different things should be the most important topic of discussion that they turn into snarling beasts the moment their pet project isn’t at the forefront.
Amid internal fissures, the official Black Lives Matter movement erupted Wednesday after none of its leaders were invited to a high-profile meeting with presumptive President-elect Joe Biden.
“Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Rep. Cedric Richmond met with several civil rights groups yesterday. @blklivesmatter — as the largest social and justice movement in history — was not invited,” the organization vented on Twitter, following that up with complaints that BLM was vital to Biden and therefore deserved to be invited.
“The night of their victory, we sent @joebiden and @kamalaharris a letter requesting a meeting. It has now been 32 days and we have yet to receive a response. To set up a meeting with civil rights leaders, without BLM, is unacceptable,” the group tweeted.
“The civil rights movement of the 21st century involves BLM. To leave us out is to ignore the millions of people who brought the Biden Harris victory [email protected] @KamalaHarris we are watching, we are waiting, and we are tired of waiting.”
The group was miffed not to be part of a meeting in which Biden, joined by presumptive Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and Democratic Rep. Cedric Richmond of Louisiana, who Biden has chosen to lead the White House Office of Public Engagement, met with activist groups.
The virtual meeting focused in part on filling potential administration positions with black appointees, particularly at the Cabinet level, according to Politico.
“You cannot respond by not having an attorney general that has a background in civil rights,” Rev. Al Sharpton said he told Biden. “My preference, I said to him, is to have a black attorney general. … I said, however, the least we could have is someone that has a proven civil rights background, not someone that’s gonna handle this heightened, racist, bigoted atmosphere with on-the-job training.”
