“Seventy-two percent of black people in this city from ages 18-44 are unvaccinated,” said BLM organizer Chivona Newsome, according to reporting by National Review’s Caroline Downey. “So what is going to stop the Gestapo, I mean the NYPD, from rounding up black people, from snatching them off the train, off the bus? … We’re putting this city on notice that your mandate will not be another racist social-distance practice. Black people are not going to stand by, or you will see another uprising.”
“We are serving notice on the mayor, on the governor, on the restaurant industry that we will not allow for you to use this pandemic, vaccination cards, and masks as another reason to be racist, to put us in prison,” said Black Women’s March co-founder Kimberly Bernard. “Because there’s enough of us in there.”
We must confess some admiration at these remarks. As far as white gentry liberals are concerned, blacks are not supposed to say such things out loud. Democratic politicians want to use black votes to advance themselves, but all they offer in return is their bankrupt ideology and their sense of entitlement. Bit by bit, more black voters are figuring this out.
