We Can't Ignore Biden's Blatant Racism
While former President Donald Trump was in office, the left would constantly call him racist, citing his anti-illegal immigration policies and travel bans to countries with terrorism risks. Now that President Biden is in office they are silent about the President’s racism despite his racist history and continuous racist comments.
During a CNN town hall last week Biden said, “Not everybody in the community in the Hispanic and African American community particularly in uh rural areas that are distant and, or inner city districts know how to use, know how to get online to determine how to get in line for that COVID vaccination at the, at the Walgreens or at, at, at the particular store.”
His comment was a huge insult to minorities but this isn’t his first time he’s insulted the intelligence of minorities.
In 2019, Biden said, “Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”
The President of the United States should not be creating harmful racial stereotypes, he should be working to tear them down. In a culture where the left “cancels” public figures for any small sign of racism in their past, they still chose to ignore the fact that the President of the United States is blatantly racist. More than anyone else, Biden should be held accountable for his racism because of his position.
Biden also believes that he’s entitled to the support of African Americans because of racial stereotypes.
During the 2020 election Biden said, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
In addition to Biden’s pattern of racist comments, he has a shady history when it comes to civil rights and racial legislation in Congress. As a senator, Biden voted and advocated against desegregation in schools and busing, which provided students of color with a way to attend better schools that were normally reserved for white students.
When defending his position against busing in 1977 Biden said, “Unless we do something about this, my children are going to grow up in a jungle, the jungle being a racial jungle with tensions built so high that it is going to explode at some point.”
Biden was so passionately against busing that in order to further the anti-busing cause he worked with Ku Klux Klan member, Senator Robert Byrd who had filibustered in order to prevent the 1964 civil rights bill from being passed. Biden later referred to Byrd as “a very great friend of mine, one of my mentors”.
In 1975, Biden co-sponsored and passed legislation that made it more difficult to racially integrate schools, taking away the federal government’s ability to defund schools that were not abiding by the government’s integration standards.
It’s vital that we acknowledge and condemn Biden’s racist history and continuous racist comments.
