Kamala Harris pulls out of South Carolina criminal justice forum over Trump award
NBC News ^ | October 25, 2019 | Deepa Shivaram and Dareh Gregorian

Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris said Friday she won't take part in a forum being held a historically black college in Columbia, South Carolina this weekend after President Donald Trump was given a "Bipartisan Justice Award."

“As the only candidate who attended an HBCU, I know the importance that these spaces hold for young Black Americans," Harris, who was slated to participate in Second Step Presidential Justice Forum at Benedict College on Saturday, said in a statement.

The California senator cited the fact that only a limited number of students from the school were allowed to attend Trump's remarks as the final straw.

"Today, when it became clear Donald Trump would receive an award after decades of celebrating mass incarceration, pushing the death penalty for innocent Black Americans, rolling back police accountability measures and racist behavior that puts people’s lives at risk, and then learned all but ten Benedict students are excluded from participating, I cannot in good faith be complicit in papering over his record," Harris said.

The event's organizer, the 20/20 Bipartisan Justice Center, cited Trump's work in getting the criminal justice reform measure the First Step Act passed as the impetus for the award.

Trump tweeted that it was "my true honor" to receive the award.

Not the first civil rights award that President Trump has been awarded and it won't be the last.

Must be nice to make wild accusations “without evidence”, and never ever have anyone in the media question them

Typical lying democrat: make up stuff and never called out for the lies.

Trump should give Rudy a full time job suing democrats for libel / character defamation.

pushing the death penalty for innocent Black Americans

Projection. She is a champion of the death penalty for innocent Black Americans - pre-born ones.

She is Jamaican/Indian, she has no connection to the American black experience.

I read this as a BLACK woman not going to a BLACK event because one of the recipients of an award is WHITE.

Ok, and she will still say WE are racists.
