The Biden administration is being praised for its diversity, having selected minorities for high-profile roles. Just because Biden's cabinet is diverse, doesn't mean people of color should get excited for officials who may push policies that hurt their communities. As a board member of Raytheon, Austin profits from Yemeni casualties, and the fact that he is Black doesn't change this fact. Richmond will head the Office of Public Engagement, working as an intermediary between the Biden administration and grassroots campaigns. Fudge is qualified for the job and will happily accept, but the fact that her criticism of the role was ignored or overlooked by Biden's team is a dramatic sign of indifference.

10 Months Later, Iowa Democrats Blame National Party for Caucus Meltdown
  + stars: | 2020-12-12 | by ( Reid J. Epstein | ) sentiment -1.00   time to read: +2 min
“When the D.N.C.’s database conversion tool failed to work correctly, it caused the D.N.C. from reporting its results, and the I.D.P.’s entire planned reporting process was thrown into disarray,” the report says. Black and Hispanic Democrats argued that a state whose population is 90 percent white did not properly represent an increasingly diverse party. And the party’s internal record-keeping from caucus sites has been proved shoddy for a second presidential election in a row. Iowa and New Hampshire are wonderful places, but they should no longer go first.”Iowa Democrats no longer have an ally leading their party in Washington.
