(TheConservativeNews.org) – Joe Biden was under intense pressure to choose not just any running mate — the RIGHT running mate. That pressure was turned up another notch right before he announced his pick.

On August 10, over 100 leaders in the Black community, including men from sports, entertainment, and legal worlds posted an open letter threatening the former vice president with a simple ultimatum:

Either choose a Black woman as your running mate or lose the election.

The letter says choosing a Black woman VP is no longer something that should happen. It now “HAS to happen.”

Among the men who signed on to the letter were Sean “Diddy” Combs, Van Jones, and Lenard “Charlamagne Tha God” McKelvey. Several prominent Black lawyers signed it as well, including Benjamin Crump, who represented the families of Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin. He now represents the family of George Floyd.

On August 11, Biden took his marching orders. He did, in fact, choose a Black woman as his veep — Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA). We’ll see how this pick sits with the BLM crowd.
