Nina Turner Op Ed: 'Joe Biden has repeatedly betrayed black voters'

While Bernie Sanders has always stood up for African Americans, Joe Biden has repeatedly let us down

In choosing between the two Democratic Party candidates atop the polls, African American voters have a consequential decision to make:

Will our community side with former Vice President Joe Biden, who has repeatedly betrayed black voters to side with Republican lawmakers and undermine our progress? Or will we stand with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and a movement that has been fighting for racial and economic justice since the civil rights era?

(snip) As a recent NBC News headline said of Biden’s time in the Senate: “Biden didn’t just compromise with segregationists. He fought for their cause.” The NBC report quoted the NAACP’s legal director saying that one Biden-backed measure “heaves a brick through the window of school integration.”

(snip) Biden facilitated the public degradation of Anita Hill, an esteemed professor already victimized by a powerful man.

Biden also fought alongside right-wing Republicans to pass so-called “welfare reform” that reduced financial support for low-income families. Biden echoed former President Ronald Reagan’s dishonest “welfare queen” language and wrote a column conjuring an ugly stereotype of “welfare mothers driving luxury cars and leading lifestyles that mirror the rich and famous.”

If this contest has proved anything, there is nothing more counter-productive than attacking Obama's VP on civil rights. This dog will not hunt.

Nina also went on to repeat David Sirota's most recent lie of attack. "Biden has repeatedly worked with Republicans to try to slash Social Security". Rated by Politifact: False. Nothing good will come from this for the Sanders campaign.

As usual, she was difficult to listen to, always angry and always loud. A terrible choice for a surrogate.

7. Thanks

 

Don't give me too much credit. I rarely watch Sharpton. I happened to turn on the TV because it was too quiet. I was going to turn it off, but when I saw Nina Turner, I was curious what she had to say. She was far worse than I had imagined, talking over Sharpton, barely letting him respond or ask her a question. Clearly he didn't seem to agree with a lot of what she was saying. When she was done, I turned the TV off and took a nap!

20. I like Rev Al when I catch him as a guest during the week; he's very sharp on the subject of Trump

 

As he likes to say, they are both New Yorkers and he (Sharpton) has known of Trump's career there for 35 years.

Delegates will vote against him to keep the likes of Gray, Sirota, Turner and Weaver, well away form the next Democratic Administration.

17. Turner turned her back on the country in 2016.

 

That includes completely selling out the black community. She did it for personal gain. What she isn’t smart enough to realize is that we all lost.

25. African Americans trust and support Joe Biden -- and Bernie Sanders' dirty tactics won't change that

 




Joe has more relationships in our communities than anyone else in this race.

He has more history with our communities than anyone else in this race.

And Joe is more comfortable in our communities than anyone else in this race.

To say that Joe has betrayed black voters is not only dangerous, it is flat-out wrong. We already know his character, his heart and his record; you can’t try to make us believe something that runs counter to our own experiences with Joe Biden.

Not only has Joe spent his entire career fighting for civil rights, voting rights, equal justice and equal opportunity, it is what brought him into public service in the first place. In fact, Joe led the charge as a United States senator to extend and strengthen the Voting Rights Act in 1982.

He has fought for more resources to prosecute hate crimes, including resources for the Justice Department and FBI to reopen painful, unsolved murders from the civil rights era.

And in one of the greatest achievements of his career, Joe forged a path for the protection of women and girls — including women of color — by writing and spearheading the Violence Against Women Act.

Here’s what I don’t understand: If Joe Biden wasn’t a champion for black America, why did Barack Obama, our nation’s first African American president, choose Joe to be his vice president?

In my lifetime Joe’s steadfast support as Obama’s No. 2 was unprecedented; it was one of the first occasions when people who look like me were able to see a white man standing proudly and loyally behind a black man. And I can tell you this: South Carolina voters will never forget that.

Nina is totally right about Joe.

"If you have a piece of crack-cocaine no bigger than a quarter, we passed a law that says you go to jail for five years."
