DNC Candidate: Blacks Experiencing ‘Justified Fear’ in Wake of Trump Victory

‘Until all of America understands the fear that is out there, the justified fear because of what we’re seeing happen across the country, to African-American lives, we’re never going to be able to move this country forward’

RUSH EXCERPT:
BUCKLEY: "We were all grieving and I was shocked that America elected Donald Trump. I could not believe -- I got home around 4:00 in the morning. But at 6:00 in the morning I was woken up. I saw that it was my niece Tunisia. What had not even processed I was upset about the results is how she was going to as a young African-American 20-year-old, how she processed what happened the night before and she was sobbing so hard I couldn't understand at first what she was saying and I kept saying, what is wrong, what is wrong? She goes, Uncle Raymond, you have to get me out of here. She feared for her safety by what happened on Election Day. Now, until all of America understands the fear that is out there, the justified fear because of what we're seeing happen across the country, to African-American lives, we're never going to be able to move this country forward. It is important. I never again want to ever get a call from "The Today Show" like that. It was a soul crushing experience for me because when Tunisia was saying get me out of this country because my life is in danger because she had that overwhelming fear. That is something that is not just certain cities. It's not just certain parts of the country. That fear is all across the country. It's even in rural new Hampshire. So when people say black lives matter, you are damn right they matter."
