    A black leadership group slammed President Biden after his State of the
    Union address Wednesday night, with one member stating, “Joe Biden used
    black Americans to ascend to the White House, but has basically turned
    his back on them.”

    Members of Project 21 — a 25-year-old group that is an “initiative of
    The National Center for Public Policy Research to promote the views of African-Americans whose entrepreneurial spirit, dedication to family
    and commitment to individual responsibility have not traditionally been
    echoed by the nation’s civil rights establishment,” as their website
    states — issued a press release Wednesday lashing out at Biden.

    Project 21 Co-Chairman Stacy Washington stated, “The policy needs of
    black Americans always come last with liberals – regardless of the high percentage of blacks who support them. President Biden claimed his administration is on track to cut child poverty in half, but failed to
    cite any metrics or data to support that claim. Thirty percent of black
    kids live in poverty. There are over 97,000 black children in foster
    care. In less than 100 days, the Biden Administration has admitted over
    20,000 migrant children into the country, putting their needs ahead of
    those of black children. What are your plans for American children, Mr. President? Black Americans want to know.”

    Project 21 member Marie Fischer echoed, “Joe Biden used black Americans
    to ascend to the White House, but has basically turned his back on
    them. The examples are epic. By allowing biological boys to compete in
    women’s sports, he will cause girls – especially black girls – to lose
    out on college scholarships that could help them attain a better life.
    Then there’s amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. Studies like one
    from the National Bureau of Economic Research have shown that, as
    illegal immigration increases, jobs become increasingly scarce for
    black Americans while incarceration rates rise. A $15 minimum wage will similarly decrease employment opportunities for black youth. Biden got
    into office with the typical bait-and-switch that the left always uses
    on black America.”

    “A hundred days of divisiveness have hurt the black community, with
    damaging policies bringing more harm than help,” asserted Project 21
    member Martin Baker. “For example, while every other ethnic group has
    seen their unemployment numbers diminish, blacks have seen theirs rise
    since Biden entered office. A recent H&R Block survey of black-owned
    businesses revealed more than half have suffered from a 50% loss of
    revenue during this pandemic — yet Biden and his allies champion a
    higher minimum wage that would make the outlook even more bleak. These
    are not actions that benefit our community.”

    Member Derryck Green added, “Joe Biden once proclaimed in an interview
    on an urban radio station that, if blacks had trouble deciding between
    him and Donald Trump, they ‘ain’t black.’ But what have those blacks
    who proved their authenticity received for their votes? What they
    usually receive after blindly supporting liberal politicians:
    racialized talk about ‘justice’ and ‘equity’ and promises to support
    minority businesses, without significant action to actually empower
    American blacks trying to recover in a post-COVID economy. Biden signed executive orders for gay and transgendered Americans, for illegal
    aliens and Latinos and for gender equity. But blacks have been
    predictably ignored.”

    Trump won.
