Is this lip service or is uncle Joe really going to right these social wrongs and fix them.
I mean this stuff has all been said before but nothing changes. Are we expecting too much?



WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Joe Biden and two of his top cabinet members on Wednesday promised U.S. economic and criminal justice reforms that would benefit Black communities at a conference organized by longtime activist Al Sharpton.

Attorney General Merrick Garland, the top U.S. law enforcement official, spoke about reforming the criminal justice system, cracking down on police misconduct and ending mass incarceration and federal use of private prisons.

"This is a profound economic and moral challenge," Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen told the conference, underscoring her personal and lifelong commitment to reversing the persistent disparities in wealth and employment that plague Black communities through targeted policies and programs.
