Although he’s not the full-blown progressive social justice candidate they had hoped for, Black Lives Matter is cozying up to projected president-elect Joe Biden, declaring that “Black people won this election.”
According to Fox News, BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors wrote a letter to Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris over the weekend, requesting an audience to discuss the organization’s agenda and list its expectations from the Biden administration.
“Without the resounding support of Black people, we would be saddled with a very different electoral outcome,” Cullors wrote. “In short, Black people won this election.”
Cullors went on, stating that BLM wants “to be heard and our agenda to be prioritized.”
Cullors pointed out to Biden and Harris that they had each previously “expressed regrets regarding your record on issues impacting Black people,” advising them to “take your direction from Black grassroots organizers that have been engaged in this work for decades, with a legacy that spans back to the first arrival of enslaved Africans.”
“We would like to be actively engaged in your Transition Team’s planning and policy work,” Cullors concluded. “Let’s get to work!”
“The African American community stood up again for me. They always have my back, and I’ll have yours,” Biden said during a victory speech at the Chase Center in Wilmington, Delaware. “I said from the outset I wanted a campaign that represented America, and I think we did that. Now that’s what I want the administration to look like.”
