Black Eyed Peas With Jennifer Hudson Redo Lyrics Of ‘Where Is The Love’ For Powerful Biden Ad

There are seven days left until the 2020 presidential elections. Democrats and Republicans are doing everything they can to make sure that their party wins. The Black Eyed Peas and Jennifer Hudson joined the fight for a Biden/Harris administration with a powerful ad.

The Black Eyed Peas, Jennifer Hudson, and Joe Biden are appealing to the love of the American people.

The Black Eyed Peas with Jennifer Hudson reworked the lyrics to the groups mega hit “Where Is The Love” to appeal to the American voters. The video starts with Joe Biden quoting the late civil rights activist Ella Baker saying, “Give people light and they will find the way.”

Biden’s ad is a final push to appeal to the American voters’ compassion and love. Images of protesters fighting against police brutality and white supremacy stand alongside the white supremacists marching with torches. The stark realities of two Americas is shocking as people from all walks of life hold up hearts with their hands to appeal to voters.

The ad is resonating with voters who are desperate for a hopeful message from the White House.

Fear and hate have dominated the past four years. Marginalized communities have lost rights and progress under the Trump administration. The administration has apologized for white supremacists while underplaying the danger it poses to the U.S. The FBI has named white supremacy the biggest domestic terror threat in the U.S. yet the Trump administration has done little to limit it. During the first presidential debate, President Trump was asked to condemn white supremacy and he was not able to do so.

For Biden, the election is a referendum on what kind of nation we want moving forward.

People are excited to see this collaboration. It is tugging at everyone’s heartstrings. Hate crimes have increased significantly under the Trump administration and police brutality has become more visible. The deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor highlighted the need to better train our police forces and change policing in the U.S. Americans took to the streets for months protesting the disproportionate share of local and state budgets allocated to police departments.

People are focusing on the issues on the ballot.

The Democratic Party is highlighting the issues represented on the ballot this election. From immigration to healthcare to democracy, the argument from the Democratic Party is that this election is the most consequential election of our lifetime. Furthermore, the Democratic Party and the Biden/Harris campaign argue that the soul and spirit of our nation are on the ballot.

Don’t forget to vote on Nov. 3 or send in your mail-in ballot in time to make sure that your vote and voice are heard.

An Alleged Rapist Is Running For Governor In Mexico And Still Has The Support Of President AMLO

An Alleged Rapist Is Running For Governor In Mexico And Still Has The Support Of President AMLO

For years, Mexicans have been taking to the streets to denounce violence against women and to demand accountability from their leaders. However, much of that messaging doesn’t seem to have reached the very top as President Andres Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) continues to support a candidate for governor facing multiple allegations of sexual assault.

A candidate for governor faces multiple sexual assault allegations and still enjoys widespread support.

Félix Salgado Macedonio, a federal senator (currently on leave) is accused of sexually assaulting five women and yet is still in the running for governor of Guerrero.

Despite the accusations he faces, 64-year-old Salgado, has maintained the support of President AMLO, who has claimed that the allegations are politically motivated, and other high-ranking party officials including national party president Mario Delgado. He was considered the frontrunner in the election for governor.

AMLO came to the candidates defense, calling on people to stop politicking and avoid “media lynchings” and asserting that people should trust the party process that was used to select Salgado as candidate.

“We have to have confidence in the people, it’s the people who decide. If polls are taken and and the people say ‘I agree with this colleague [being candidate],’ I think that must be respected. Politics is a matter for everyone, not just the elites,” López Obrador said.

The MORENA party has committed to reselecting its candidate for governor but Salgado is still in the running.

Officials from the MORENA party announced that they would conduct a new selection process to find a contender for the June 6 election. The party’s honesty and justice commission said its members had voted unanimously to order a repeat of the selection process.

While the honesty and justice commission has ordered a new candidate selection process, Salgado was not precluded from participating in it. He indicated in a social media post on Friday night that he planned to seek the party’s backing for a second time.

“Cheer up colleagues! There is [still fight in the] bull,” Salgado wrote on Facebook.

Activists continue to fight back against his candidacy and the president’s support for an alleged rapist.

Women have protested in Mexico City and Guerrero state capital Chilpancingo and the hashtag #NingúnVioladorSeráGobernador (No Rapist Will be Governor) has been used countless times on Twitter.

Yolitzin Jaimes, a member of the feminist collective Las Revueltas, said the withdrawal of Salgado’s candidacy is a positive first step but urged the authorities to continue investigating the rape allegations.

“… He has to go to jail, … he mustn’t return to the Senate and he mustn’t be nominated [for governor] by any political party because … it’s very probable that he’s seeking to go to the Labor Party [a Morena ally],” she said.
