Rice was Biden’s safe pick. He knew her. He didn’t pick someone with civil rights experience and relationships, he chose Obama’s former National Security Advisor. That is NOT going to fly with Black people anywhere. Biden picked her for Biden, not us. Furthermore, Executive Orders leave with the next President. None of this is substantive. It’s temporary to shut folks up who don’t know any better.

I know better. It’s a weak gesture. A pacifier.
