Civil Rights Activist Says Biden Is Losing Support

A farmer and civil rights activist is complaining about the treatment of farmers under President Joe Biden’s leadership, saying that Democrats have taken the Black vote for granted.

Speaking to Fox News Digital, Dr. John Boyd (Jr.), the founder and president of the National Black Farmers Association, spoke about how he has not been able to meet with Biden to discuss farming issues and debt relief for Black farmers.

“From a Black standpoint, many Blacks, including my son, have voted Democrat for a very long time, and it looks like, when we raise issues like this, our votes are being taken for granted,” he stated.

He then added, “He’s losing support in the Black community because he’s not communicating with the Black community and high turnover and senior level staffers that should be communicating with the Black community. I haven’t had one meeting in the White House, not one meeting in the White House since he’s been president.”

Boyd, a fourth-generation farmer, went on to point out how odd it is that he has not been allowed to meet with Biden even though he has met with “every president since Jimmy Carter” “to talk about issues that are relevant to our national body.”

Even as it’s Black History Month, Boyd made it clear that he has not received any invitation from Biden for a conversation.

Weighing in on concerns about Biden’s age which have increased lately, he stated, “President Biden’s age is an issue for many Americans, and not just for Black folks, but a lot of people are looking and wondering, can he really govern the country over the next four years if he’s reelected, in the condition that he’s in.”

Boyd also took issue with Biden over his inaction at the U.S. border with Mexico, emphasizing that the border would be closed if it was up to him.

“The border remains wide open. It’s in complete chaos at the border. Here we are letting people who are not U.S. citizens coming into this country, and we’re giving them debit cards and money and putting them up into hotels,” he stated.

“And you know, I just described my rich history, both good and bad, my forefathers being slaves here on American soil, brought to the country by force, and here are these people coming into the U.S. who aren’t citizens, and we’re treating them better than U.S. citizens. What does that say to the nation’s hardest occupation in history, which is farming?” he added before saying, “If I was president, I would close the border, simple as that, I don’t need an act of Congress to do it.”

Boyd’s remarks come as polls show Biden and Democrats generally are losing support among Black voters. Democrats’ advantage over Republicans in a recent Gallup poll is the smallest the polling has ever recorded since 1999.
