The RADICALS: Take a Look at More Biden Nominees and Appointments, and related stories

Five firebrand Biden nominees and appointments:
Kristen Clarke
Biden's pick to lead the Justice Department's civil rights division apologized last month for past comments on racial superiority and for hosting an event with a professor who espoused anti-Semitic views while a student at Harvard University.
In 1994, as the leader of Harvard University's Black Student Association, Clarke invited the late Wellesley College professor Tony Martin to speak at an event where he attacked Jewish people for a "tradition" of targeting blacks.
Amid criticism, Clarke defended Martin, stating, "Professor Martin is an intelligent, well-versed black intellectual who bases his information of indisputable fact," according to a report in the student newspaper, the Harvard Crimson.
That same year, Clarke, citing neuroscientist Carol Barnes, co-authored a letter to the paper arguing that black people had "superior physical and mental abilities," and that melanin skin pigment "endows blacks with greater mental, physical, and spiritual abilities–something which cannot be measured based on Eurocentric standards."
In January, Clarke apologized, telling the Forward that hosting Martin "was a mistake," as was defending him.
Asked to disavow Martin and his views, Clarke told the outlet, "I do, 100%. I unequivocally denounce antisemitism."
Her letter about racial superiority was intended to skewer a study purporting to tie intelligence to race with an equally "absurd claim that Black people are superior based on the melanin in their skin," she said.
She defended signing a petition to support Women's March co-President Tamika Mallory, who was forced to resign amid charges of anti-Semitism and a refusal to condemn Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. --->Read about the other 4 HERE
Another Member of the Equity Squad Joins the Biden Administration:
Marcia Fudge, the Ohio Congresswoman, and now Secretary of Housing and Urban Development appointed by President Joe Biden, is an unabashed advocate of equity. In her confirmation hearing before the Senate, she explained to Senator Tom Cotton exactly what she meant by “equity” — and she made sure to distinguish the term from equality.
"From my own perspective, the difference is that one just means that you treat everybody the same… Sometimes the same is not equitable."
Fudge went on to elucidate her points with examples: --->READ MORE HERE
