Stacey Abrams claims 'the attack on DEI is an attack on Democracy'

"The attack on DEI is an attack on Democracy, it's an attack on education, it's an attack on how our economy works."


Howard University professor and former Democratic candidate for governor in Georgia Stacey Abrams claimed in an interview on Monday that in the US "the attack on DEI is an attack on Democracy" as well as other institutions.  

The comment came from Abrams in an interview with Al Sharpton on MSNBC.  

"We have to remember that built into every victory are the seeds of defeat, but also built into every defeat are the seeds of victory," she began. "We have seen victory, but we cannot rest on that victory and think that it is impermeable and impervious to harm." 

"What we know is that the attack on diversity, equity, and inclusion, DEI, is an attack on democracy, it's an attack on education, it's an attack on how our economy works." 

She then said that Sens. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff represent "are pathways to the American dream, they are proof points." 

Abrams then speculated that the Democrat senators from Georgia "scare those who want this world to be more narrow and more restrictive." 

She failed in an election bid against Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp in 2018 and over the last several years has denied the loss dozens of times.  

Her denial of the election results is often pitted against talking points that Democrats bring up about Trump not immediately conceding to President Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election. Trump has been facing a legal case in Georgia brought by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, during the lead-up to his 2024 election bid.  

DEI has lost much favor in recent months. Affirmative action was overruled by the Supreme Court and many bills have been introduced to strike down DEI measures at colleges throughout the US.
