From Derecka Purnell, “Notable & Quotable” in the WSJ:
The Democratic Party holds black people in an abusive relationship but says you cannot leave because the other option is more abusive. That’s why I don’t believe that a vote against Biden solely means a vote for Trump. Perhaps it is a vote against being captured by the party that makes empty promises every four years when it is election time, and delivers nothing. . . . Perhaps it is a vote against covert and overt racism.
What Will Biden Actually Deliver
Biden and others will rightfully argue that Trump is worse, and I agree. But what can Biden actually deliver? Will there be fewer drones if he’s president? Maybe not. Fewer deportations? Maybe not. Less money to police departments? No. Will fewer black people die from police? Unlikely. Will black people have healthcare? Unlikely. Will black wealth increase? Unlikely. Will Palestinian lives be safer? Unlikely. Commitments to preserving our climate? Doubtful. If black people have a hard time figuring out the differences between Trump and Biden, then that is Biden’s problem, not ours.
Blacks Deserve Better than Biden
Joe Biden refuses to reckon with the harm that he has caused to people all over the world. His best line is that he is better than the other guy, and that is exactly how abusive relationships function. Black people—all people—deserve better than Biden and the Democratic party. And yes, we are still black.
Biden’s Lack of PC and Intersectionality
David Marcus writes in The Federalist:
This is really the key aspect of political correctness and intersectionality that Joe Biden doesn’t quite comprehend. In most cases it is not so much the speech itself that is offensive but the identity of the speaker that makes it so.
Progressive whites and those in their orbit have learned a whole set of rules regarding all of this, from cultural appropriation to tone policing, Uncle Joe Biden it seems has not.”
