Black Lives Matter Turns On Biden After He Doesn’t Invite Any BLM Leaders To Meeting With Civil Rights Leaders

Former Vice President Joe Biden may have just lost the support of Black Lives Matter forever after he held a meeting with civil rights leaders on Tuesday and failed to invite anyone from their organization.

“Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Rep. Cedric Richmond met with several civil rights groups yesterday. @blklivesmatter — as the largest social justice movement in history — was not invited,” the official Black Lives Matter Twitter account tweeted.

Not stopping their, the radically leftwing political organization later added, “The night of their victory, we sent @joebiden and @kamalaharris a letter requesting a meeting. It has now been 32 days and we have yet to receive a response. To set up a meeting with civil rights leaders, without BLM, is unacceptable.”

Do you think President Biden should be impeached for the crisis in Afghanistan and loss of American lives?

Black Lives Matter then demanded a “seat at the table” alongside a petition calling for Biden and Kamala Harris to meet with them.

Black Lives Matter was triggered after being left out of a Tuesday meeting in which Biden talked about various positions in his administration, most notably the type of person he would nominate as attorney general.

Politico reported of the meeting:

The conversation was centered on racial justice and equity — racial equity is among the four pillars Biden laid out as top priorities on his transition website. Race was also a key issue in the presidential election, as Americans all over the country took to the streets to protest racial injustice amid a pandemic that has disproportionately affected black and brown communities. Plus, black voters not only saved Biden’s presidential primary campaign but also helped elevate him to the White House in November.

“You cannot respond by not having an attorney general that has a background in civil rights,” Reverend Al Sharpton reportedly recalled telling Biden during a news conference. ” My preference, I said to him, is to have a black attorney general. … I said, however, the least we could have is someone that has a proven civil rights background, not someone that’s gonna handle this heightened, racist, bigoted atmosphere with on-the-job training.”

Perhaps Biden is finally regretting getting in bed with Black Lives Matter and other radically liberal groups.
