COVID-19 has killed 1 in every 645 Black Americans. As of March 1, only 7% of vaccine recipients has been Black. @wkamaubell  joined a group of Black doctors to spread the truth about the vaccine.

Republicans keep using evidence-free allegations of voter fraud to cover up their blatant efforts to suppress votes by Black Americans.

Devil is in the details: Why Americans need to know more about Black Lives Matter's $90 mln earnings @Blklivesmatter 

For too long, the Senate has not worked for the American people. We can't let the filibuster that enabled Jim Crow & denied Black Americans voting rights continue to impede the American people’s fundamental, constitutional right to free and fair elections.

the interesting part comes just before this, where harrison is reminding Congress that the country has a debt to pay to black americans

In an interview with WBEZ's @natalieymoore , @SenKamalaHarris  Kamala Harris acknowledged the “righteous, righteous reason” Black Americans are hesitant to get vaccinated against COVID-19, but still urged Chicago residents to line up for shots. Full story:

2020 saw the Sharpest Rise in Poverty Rate in US in More Than 50 Years. Concentrated in 2nd half 2020 when CARES was allowed to expire. 5.4% leap for Black Americans = 2.4m individuals. Meyer & Sullivan work is essential stuff.

What Amazon has done is a disservice to anyone—black or white—who is interested in the rich history of black Americans, writes @jasonrileywsj 

Even though slavery was abolished more than 100 years ago, the wealth gap between white and Black Americans still exist.​

🚨🚨Tonight at 7pm:🚨🚨 EXCLUSIVE: Channel 4 News investigation reveals a huge Trump campaign data leak, exposing how 3.5 million Black Americans were listed as ‘Deterrence’ - to try to stop them voting in 2016. #DeterringDemocracy 

BREAKING: UK’s Channel 4 has obtained a huge data leak from Trump’s 2016 campaign. The leak reveals personal data of almost 200 million voters used by Trump’s campaign, which manipulated algorithms to deter millions of Black Americans from voting.

Trump demanded early this morning that the votes of Black Americans in Milwaukee, Detroit, and Philly not be counted. Now he is pushing to make sure Black Americans in Atlanta not have their votes counted. Like segregationists of the past, he fears the power of their votes.

The police who shot Jacob Blake in the back seven times must be fired, arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Congress cannot wait any longer to act forcefully to end the horrific violence against Black Americans at the hands of police.

If you aren't retweeting the voter suppression going on in Georgia right now impacting Black Americans you obviously don't care. SHAME ON YOU @GOP  @BrianKempGA  STEALING A ELECTION. You can't have a Democracy if you suppress the black vote. RACISTS.

In 3 1/2 years, I’ve done much more for our Black population than Joe Biden has done in 43 years. Actually, he set them back big time with his Crime Bill, which he doesn’t even remember. I’ve done more for Black Americans, in fact, than any President in U.S. history, with...

(2/2) Trevor on George Floyd and the Minneapolis protests: “If you felt unease watching that Target being looted, try to imagine how it must feel for black Americans when they watch themselves being looted every single day. Police in America are looting black bodies.”

Here's the sad reality: what happened to George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery & Christian Cooper has gone on for generations to Black Americans. Cell phones just made it more visible. Dismantling systemic racism in our nation starts with demanding justice & holding offenders accountable.

So if African-American unemployment is now at the lowest number in history, median income the highest, and you then add all of the other things I have done, how do Democrats, who have done NOTHING for African-Americans but TALK, win the Black Vote? And it will only get better!

1.3 million black Americans already voted for Trump in 2016. This morning, Joe Biden told every single one of us we “ain’t black.” I’d say I’m surprised, but it’s sadly par for the course for Democrats to take the black community for granted and brow beat those that don’t agree.
