Joe Biden Vows to Unite America as President

President-elect Joe Biden called for an end of “a grim era of demonization in America,” as he promised to unite a deeply divided nation mired by a pandemic, racial unrest and an economic recession.

“I pledge to be a president who does not seek to divide, but unify, who doesn’t see red states and blue states, but only sees the United States,” Mr. Biden said at a drive-in rally in his hometown of Wilmington,

“I pledge to be a president who does not seek to divide, but unify, who doesn’t see red states and blue states, but only sees the United States,” Mr. Biden said at a drive-in rally in his hometown of Wilmington, Del.

Mr. Biden addressed the nation hours after the Associated Press declared that he had garnered the 270 electoral votes needed to defeat President Trump.

#NNPA BLACKPRESSRECAP: Rev. Raphael Warnock’s Historic Win in Georgia Senate Race

By Lauren Victoria Burke, NNPA Newswire Contributor Rev. Raphael Warnock, who is the pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, the Atlanta church where Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was pastor during the civil rights movement, is now the first Black Democrat to be elected to the U.S. Senate in the Deep South in the modern political era. Warnock is the first African American to win a U.S. Senate seat in Georgia’s history. The runoff election featured historic turnout. A voter registration strategy implemented by former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, along with a push by grassroots groups like Black Votes Matter, led by LaTosha Brown, was a deciding factor in Warnock’s decisive win. Black voters in Georgia over-performed in the early vote and on Election Day. The balance of power in Washington and on Capitol Hill will now shift dramatically to Democrats who will now control Congress and The White House. The dual victories on the same night by Rev. Warnock and Jon Ossoff marks a repudiation of the GOP under Donald Trump.

Is Ketamine the New Police Weapon Against Black Lives?

police. By the time the paramedics had arrived, he was lying in the grass next to his own vomit, surrounded by at least four cops barking “chill out!” and threatening to sic a police dog on him if he moved. McClain was clearly helpless, and yet the officers still saw him as a threat who needed to be further subdued. The fire medics rolled up McClain’s shirt sleeve and reportedly injected him with a 500-milligram shot of ketamine, a powerful sedative. Less than two minutes later, the 23-year-old started snoring, and after lightly slapping him a few times to make sure he was out cold, the medics lifted McClain’s limp body onto a stretcher. On his way to the hospital, McClain went into cardiac arrest. Less than a week later, he was dead.

America's COVID-19 health crisis is becoming an economic crisis

In the U.S. election season and with COVID-19 cases approaching the 10 million mark, a survey recently conducted by Reputation Leaders found six in 10 Americans reported both their health and finances were impacted by COVID-19. A survey of 1000 U.S. adults nationally found 47% of Americans had self-isolated to protect their health while 18% said their health had suffered during COVID-19. Over half, 57% of adults have been impacted financially during COVID-19. On a positive note, nearly half (48%) of adults surveyed reported receiving Federal stimulus money. The CARES Act channeled an enormous $2trn into the U.S. economy, supporting families and small businesses, but it expired in August. With no political consensus on more stimulus, The Economist estimated America's poverty rate to have risen from 9.3% in June to 11.1% in September.

Nina Turner announces bid to succeed Marcia Fudge in Congress

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Former state Sen. Nina Turner made her bid official for Rep. Marcia Fudge’s congressional seat in Northeast Ohio, becoming the third candidate to jump in to what will likely be a crowded primary. Turner, 53, of Cleveland, held multiple elected offices in both the city and state before becoming a national name through her work with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. She becomes the third candidate to enter the race for the 11th Congressional District seat, which would be open for only the third time since 1968 pending Fudge’s confirmation as Democratic President-elect Joe Biden’s Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

Innocence Project Calls for Policy Reforms in Wake of Landmark Report on 25 Wrongful Convictions in Brooklyn

Today, the Kings County District Attorney’s Office released a landmark report examining how and why the KCDA’s Conviction Review Unit (CRU) in Brooklyn, New York, agreed to exonerate 25 wrongly convicted people in a five-year period (between 2014-2019). These 25 wrongly convicted persons served a staggering 426 years in prison before their exonerations. And virtually all of them — 24 out of 25 — were Black and/or Latinx. They served an average of over 17 years in prison; the one white exoneree, a victim of a politically motivated election fraud prosecution, served no prison time. The report also finds that the evidence police gathered against many of these exonerees was clearly flawed from the outset — raising obvious questions about why so many Brooklyn citizens of color were prosecuted at all, and why none of the system’s actors stepped in to halt these prosecutions or rectify them for decades.

As citizens and lawmakers both, we are joining to demand the Contract with Black America be addressed immediately to finally create the “more perfect union” all Americans deserve. As such, it is time for a complete paradigm shift in how we run our institutions and operate our country. The problems facing America are too deep and wide to simply reform one area or another. Long-lasting solutions demand a comprehensive thorough “rethink” of America so that each new approach in each area supports the success of the others. This Contract with Black America will provide conceptual approaches in several areas. https://blacklivesmattercandidates.com/
