[Ed. – Strange bedfellows]
President Joe Biden and the Democrats are in power, with control of the White House and both chambers of Congress thanks to Black voters. Meanwhile, the Dems are having a debate among themselves over whether they should use their power and pass legislation to combat GOP voter suppression and gerrymandering, or flush it all down the toilet and tell Black voters to out-organize themselves — and the Democratic Party — out of this mess.
If Biden and his party believe Black people marching in the streets, protesting at the offices of recalcitrant, racist white lawmakers, and getting arrested is sufficient, they are mistaken. And if they think they can disrespect Black voters without consequence — once again they are wrong.
Black people cannot save a party unwilling to use the power Black people gave them in the first place. This is not the 1960s, and we are not going through this again.
