It is the biggest issue for the Minnesota US Senator who is vying to become Joe Biden’s possible Vice President choice…
She does have work to do….
She like Kamala Harris ?
Spent time as prosecutor……
Does having that job disqualify one from being a Democratic President or Vice President?
Does apply the law even in FOR blacks cost you their political support?
Could Biden’s recent comments to a hip hop radio host cause problems for Klobuchar?
Is this just the media amplifying some blacks pushing for a minority Vice President, be she experienced or not?
At this time….
Joe Biden and Amy Klobuchar ARE finding out about political IOU’s that become the chess game for politicians looking for support and votes….
Sharpton let the senator from Minnesota speak, but when she was done he instructed her to talk to Martin, pointing him out from the stage. “Y’all need to talk to the black press,” he told her as the audience looked on.
The unusual public scolding underlined a chief weakness in Klobuchar’s current drive to be Joe Biden’s running mate: her strained relations with African Americans. The tensions, rooted in part in her record as a Minneapolis-area prosecutor, hurt her presidential aspirations and have come storming back into the spotlight now that she is increasingly seen as a top candidate to join the ticket.
In response, Klobuchar is urgently courting the black community. In recent weeks she has aggressively reached out to African American groups, introduced a voting rights bill, joined an NAACP town hall, worked with black leaders and granted interviews to African American journalists.
But some say it’s too late to improve her standing after decades of friction. “In the next two weeks? I don’t know what that would look like,” said Rashad Robinson, executive director of the Color of Change, a racial justice nonprofit.
As a county prosecutor, Klobuchar was too harsh toward nonwhite defendants, particularly African Americans, critics say, and as a U.S. senator she’s done little to help the black community. In seriously considering Klobuchar, Biden’s camp is making “a dangerous and reckless choice,” said Aimee Allison, a leading activist for women of color.
Biden has strong support from African American voters, but many of his allies in the black community warn him not to take it for granted…
Joe Biden STILL needs help with Obama white voters that defected from Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump….Black voters are STILL gonna vote for Biden…
