“I think a lot of black voters feel like the black community gave the most during the election, the historic election in 2020, and have gotten the least. When you overpromise so much in the beginning of the year and underdeliver at the end of the year… you suddenly end up with a disappointment factor….
“At the end of the day, ordinary folks are looking at their bills. The day-to-day day reality for black folks hasn’t improved.”
