Even as bad news continues to pile up on all fronts for the Biden Administration, it seems they now have a new problem emanating directly from The White House: the mass departure of black staffers.

As Politico reports:


At least 21 Black staffers have left the White House since late last year or are planning to leave soon. Some of those who remain say it’s no wonder why: They describe a work environment with little support from their superiors and fewer chances for promotion.

The departures have been so pronounced that, according to one current and one former White House official, some Black aides have adopted a term for them: “Blaxit.”

Public engagement aide Carissa Smith, gender policy aide Kalisha Dessources Figures, National Security Council senior director Linda Etim, digital engagement director Cameron Trimble, associate counsel Funmi Olorunnipa Badejo, chief of staff Ron Klain advisers Elizabeth Wilkins and Niyat Mulugheta, press assistant Natalie Austin, National Economic Council aides Joelle Gamble and Connor Maxwell, and presidential personnel aides Danielle Okai, Reggie Greer and Rayshawn Dyson have all departed too. Deputy White House counsel Danielle Conley and Council of Economic Advisers aide Saharra Griffin are among others planning to leave in the coming weeks, according to White House officials.

“I have heard about an exodus of Black staffers from the White House — ‘Blaxit’ — and I am concerned,” said Spencer Overton, president of the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, which tracks government staff diversity numbers. “Black voters accounted for 22 percent of President Biden’s voters in November 2020. It is essential that Black staffers are not only recruited to serve in senior, mid-level and junior White House positions, but are also included in major policy and personnel decisions and have opportunities for advancement.”

The Biden administration had previously entered office with the pledge that the White House ‘would look like America looks.’

The closer some of these idealistic black political wannabes get to the liberal Dems, the more they see that the Democratic party is still the party of slavery it’s been for hundreds of years!

Biden corruption, Pelosi corruption, Clinton corruption. When will the public awaken and realize the democrats are totally fxxxing over our system of law? Hunter and family corruption, Pelosi and family corruption, these people are not royalty, just over paid crooks, inside trading, you bet. pay to play,of course, accepting money from China, Russia without any doubts etc. Same game the Clinton’s like to play only worse, Biden and Pelosi love Chinese money, they made a ton over the years, at what cost to the American tax payor? One can only hope after the midterms American justice will be served. All money made against the laws of the United States for their disloyalty should require full restitution for any monies obtained, require monetary pay back.
