*Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden released a new ad Thursday that deals with police brutality and the systemic racism within the criminal justice system.
The ad will begin airing digitally on Thursday in the key battleground states of Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, as well as on top cable TV networks beginning over the weekend.
The 60-second ad begins with the former vice president asking: “Why in this nation do Black Americans wake up knowing they could lose their life in the course of just living their life?”
“Part of the point of freedom is to be free from brutality, from injustice, from racism and all of its manifestations,” says Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris.
The ad goes on to highlight some of the ticket’s policy proposals, including the slashing of qualified immunity for police officers in an attempt to hold them accountable for misconduct.
