You owe us! Oh, wait

Perhaps without checking the numbers, two new Democratic members of Congress say President-elect Joe Biden owes his win to Black and brown people.

"Black and brown communities organized across the country to make sure Joe Biden won the White House," said Congressman-elect Jamaal Bowman of New York, "and he did that, but now it's time for payback. And now it's time to make sure that we invest the resources necessary to rebuild our nation in a way that is representative of all of us, so we can truly have the people's house."

Said Congresswoman-elect Cori Bush, a Black Lives Matter activist from Missouri: "Black and brown communities showed up and made sure that people were out showing up to vote. So we're asking you to show up for us."
