Light Creamy Coleslaw
While I was enjoying the last of the Light Creamy Coleslaw I made last week I noticed former Vice-President Joe Biden proposed a Build Back Better Plan. If he is elected President of the United States in November Biden says he would initiate multiple measures to stimulate the economy. In the plan he proposes tuition be waived at all Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). That sounds great on the surface except that the majority of Black students attend and graduate from predominately white institutions of higher learning.
The Vice President also recommends a student loan forgiveness program for students that attended HBCUs, again somehow forgetting about the bulk of Black America. Just like Pete Buttigieg’s Douglass Plan before, it appears no Black people were consulted in developing the Biden plan even though I know his several key campaign staff members are Black. I truly cannot fathom what the rationale behind the HBCU measures are.
Equally disappointing is the weak and vague verbiage about forming a police reform commission is quite underwhelming at a time when the entire world is peacefully protesting for police to stop killing Black people. Because Black women are the the backbone of the Democratic Party as well as in the Black Lives Matter movement, the Biden campaign should probably consult some of us before November rolls around.
I don’t fundamentally have an issue with students from HBCUs receiving special treatment, my late father is a graduate of Howard University School of Dentistry. If the Democrat cohorts however believe they have done enough to attract the young, progressive or any Black vote really, I believe they are remiss. In the meantime, prepare a healthy, light creamy coleslaw and some Guaymas Shrimp for yourself.
