On Thursday, the activist‚ who has led protests against police brutality and other issues through Black Lives Matter Chicago, declared the meeting would be little more than a photo boondoggle for the President. She wrote:
I was under the impression that a meeting was being organized to facilitate a genuine exchange on the matters facing millions of Black and Brown people in the United States. Instead, what was arranged was basically a photo opportunity and a 90-second sound bite for the president. I could not, with any integrity, participate in such a sham that would only serve to legitimize the false narrative that the government is working to end police brutality and the institutional racism that fuels it. For the increasing number of families fighting for justice and dignity for their kin slain by police, I refuse to give its perpetrators and enablers political cover by making an appearance among them.She couldn't stop and continued by writing that the federal government cannot be counted on to bring about the change she’s calling for in America. “We assert that true revolutionary and systemic change will ultimately only be brought forth by ordinary working people, students and youth – organizing, marching and taking power from the corrupt elites.”
The black Chicago community organizer who is running the country and the black Attorney General who just happens to be black, have not yet responded to Pulley’s letter.
Mutatis mutandis, I guess black is the new black and we don't use African-American anymore. You never see anybody demanding that AALM.
