Biden cannot appoint Rahm Emanuel as ambassador because of Lacan McDonald

President Joe Biden Allegedly a choice Rahm Emanuel, Former Chicago Mayor and Chief of Staff Obama, elected US Ambassador to Japan. Emmanuel is the worst choice for diplomats in any country. He offends people, so no one attacks as a diplomat. But more importantly, Rahm Emanuel does not play any role in the Biden administration or public institutions related to it.

Emmanuel doesn’t know the first Japan or diplomacy, Other than him Love for war.. As a person living in Japan and majoring in East Asian Studies at university, I must have much more knowledge about Japan and experience in the region than Rahm Emanuel, but that’s another story. ..And the man allowed near the government’s position, even responsible for cutting the lawn of the White House, for his record of despising blacks and concealing the police murder of a named black teen. Should not be Lacan McDonald..

Did Joe Biden think we forgot this, or is he just politically deaf?

When Biden was considering Emmanuel to the US Trade Representative, after a backlash from progressives put his bid on the Secretary of Transportation into the tank, Person in charge Alexandria Ocasio Cortez New York Tweet: “What’s so hard to understand about this? Rahm Emanuel helped conceal the murder of Lacuan McDonald. Concealing the murder is a qualification for public leadership. This is not about the “visibility” of the post. It’s shameful and worried that he’s even taken into account. “

Rahm Emanuel concealed the murder of Chicago mayor Lacan McDonald, a black teenager. ” Congressman Mondea Jones.. “It is completely exorbitant that he is believed to hold a cabinet position, and to be honest, it is very hurt.”

This is not the only reason to deny the man such an important and difficult task, as the death of the cover-ups of Lacan McDonald and Rahm Emanuel may have resulted. Emmanuel has a long record of despising Chicago and the blacks since then. Obama must have seen something in him to keep him — and Biden wants to get him back — but that’s someone’s guess.

As mayor, remember that Rahm Emanuel has saved millions of dollars. Chicago Public Schools, Counselors and social workers, and two-thirds of school librarians have been significantly reduced.he Closed 50 schools To Mainly black neighborhood, And he promoted the privatization of public schools and the weakening of commercial alternative schools, charter schools, and teachers’ unions.

Emmanuel showed sexism and racism and adopted racial stereotypes that were detrimental to other groups.For example, in 2019 he asked Asian American woman, Climate activist: You are “ready for adoption? … you are quiet, are you studying a lot?”

You disregard the AAPI community and your Japanese experience Sushi rolls Named after you, you must not be the US Ambassador to Japan. But if your legacy in government services is focused on concealing the execution of black boys by white police officers and bullies, it further disqualifies you from this job and other jobs. must.

Ambassador Rahm Emanuel is nothing more than a slap in the face of the Black Lives Matter movement with black voters who supported Biden. If Biden wants to maintain the support of blacks, he must not give Rahm Emanuel any position in power.
