NewsOne Now: Progressive Contract With America Is “Back Of The Bus Treatment” (VIDEO)

On Tuesday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio will unveil what is being called a “progressive contract with America.” All of the items highlighted in the “progressive contract” sound wonderful, but according Roland Martin, something is missing.

Roland Martin explained to the NewsOne Now panel that the progressive contract with America is an example of African Americans “are going to have to stop being silent and impotent when various issues are put forth and White progressives are expecting Black support and then they don’t come through in a convincing manner.”

NewsOne Now panelist Avis Jones DeWeever said, “It’s the back of the bus treatment once again.”

She added, “We’re getting disrespected yet again by people who claim to be our friends when they are begging us for our votes.”
