Dem. Strategist: Georgia Organizers Didn’t Get Recognized Because of ‘White-Lash’ at Capitol Hill

‘So we are really sitting inside a continuum of this type of white rage’


BYRD: “I mean, even as were you saying that, there was just that memory of that pit in my stomach where I thought Georgia organizers aren’t going to get the coverage that they deserve, because once again, white lash, which has long in the history of the United States followed civil rights progress. So we are really sitting inside a continuum of this type of white rage and extremism that follows our progress. And so I think it’s everyone and what I say to myself is, progress will still always win, because the multi-racial majority, intergenerational, across geography, across state, it will win.”
