    A massive shoutout to Black women across this country who showed up and showed out. A massive shoutout to Black voters across this country who showed up and showed out.

    Black women are the backbone of this country. We are the backbone of the Democratic party. We are phenomenal. We are unmatched. We are the blueprint. We thanklessly put in the work over and over again to save this country from itself. We are magic, yes, but we are also human and we need protection, care, resources, and we need our demands met.

    It is not enough to say thank you to Black women from saving America from the worst of itself. What are you going to do to ensure that Black women’s voices are not only heard but our policies are championed and implemented. How are YOU going to be an active ally in ensuring that Black women do not have to do the work alone. How are YOU going to be an active anti-racist. What are YOU going to do to begin dismantling these oppressive white supremacist systems. How are YOU and YOUR community going to show up every time.

    Black women will keep on doing the work because we want better for ourselves and those coming after us and we do not have the luxury of waiting on others to have our backs. This is a moment for those who call themselves allies to really take a deep look at their community and its failings and do the work.

      First I’m hearing of it, but I’m sorta kinda LOVING this idea! Stacey Abrams’ talent should NOT be wasted in a same-old same-old role. This is perfect for her, if she wants it. I don’t think she’s the type who wants to limit herself because of all the possibilities in front of her (and her brilliant mind).

    The highest-ranking Black person on Donald Trump’s White House staff, Ja’Ron Smith, has left his job, according to people familiar with the matter.

    Smith was a deputy assistant to the president who worked with senior adviser Jared Kushner. His last day was Friday, the people said.

    His White House e-mail returned an automated message on Friday: “Hello, I’m no longer at the White House.”

      Only johnny come lately, snowflake white folks who have not worked or suffered for any cause give up after a defeat. Black people cannot afford to do this; politics is truly a matter of life or death for us. We have no privilege, no pass, no real citizenship no matter how gifted we are or how much we accomplish. We know change is incremental and that for every forward move this country slaps us back two feet or more. They are going to make us pay for electing Barack Obama for 3 generations or more if we just sit back.

      I hope that some of the outcomes that resulted from the aggressively active voter suppression efforts of the GOP, liberal/progressive/Democrat/Independent voters…especially those who are labeled “unlikely” voters, or those who are first time voters do not discourage them.

      Instead, I hope that they will look to Stacey Abrams (and others) as a role model, inspirer, and motivator to do the things needed to overcome suppression, educate and register voters, and achieve — or move closer to achieving more desirable outcomes in future elections.

      Please don’t hold your breath, Don. Fox is not going to make that call. They called AZ on Tuesday. Trump went bonkers. Today, Jake Tapper & Brian Stelter of CNN reported that at Fox, the directive now from their top folks is to Never address Joe Biden as the Pres-elect because of all the controversies & litigations. This is why I am with those calling for the US Media to stop catering to Trumpism, Rs & treat this election as they’ve done since 2004, & call the election for Joe Biden & Kamala Harris.

This thing could drag on into next week and I am emotionally and physically exhausted. Nothing is straightforward for democrats because of all of the republican fuckery. Even Florida did better than this; mail in /absentee ballots were counted when they came in and this iis with an asshole like Desantis for a governor. Gonna disconnect for awhile except to check to see if Joe and Kamala speak at 8 pm or later. Hang in there, guys. Hopefully we will be celebrating sooner than later.
