Amid internal fissures, the official Black Lives Matter movement erupted Wednesday after none of its leaders were invited to a high-profile meeting with presumptive President-elect Joe Biden.
“Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Rep. Cedric Richmond met with several civil rights groups yesterday. @blklivesmatter — as the largest social and justice movement in history — was not invited,” the organization vented on Twitter, following that up with complaints that BLM was vital to Biden and therefore deserved to be invited.
“The night of their victory, we sent @joebiden and @kamalaharris a letter requesting a meeting. It has now been 32 days and we have yet to receive a response. To set up a meeting with civil rights leaders, without BLM, is unacceptable,” the group tweeted.
