President Biden pressed his call Thursday for the United States to combat “systemic racism” through policy initiatives, in his first public response to remarks made by Republican Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina.
Scott delivered the GOP rebuttal to Biden’s first speech to Congress on Wednesday night. In the speech, Scott argued that liberals have ignored America’s progress in addressing racism and attempted to stifle debate on key issues.
“America is not a racist country,” Scott said. “It’s backwards to fight discrimination with different types of discrimination.”
In an interview with NBC’s “Today” show, a clip of which aired Thursday evening on NBC Nightly News, Biden was asked to respond to Scott’s remarks and say whether he felt was America was racist.
“No, I don’t think the American people are racist, but I think after 400 years, African-Americans have been left in a position where they are so far behind the eight-ball in terms of education, health, in terms of opportunity,” Biden said.
“I think the overhang from all of the Jim Crow and before that, slavery, has had a cost, and we have to deal with it,” Biden added.
During his speech to Congress, Biden said his “American Jobs Plan” and “American Families Plan” – the two parts of his $4 trillion infrastructure and spending package – would provide the country with a “real chance to root out systemic racism that plagues American life.” The packages face a difficult road to passage in the Senate, where the Democrats hold a razor-thin majority.
Biden also urged Congress to pass a police reform bill by the end of May, to coincide with the first anniversary of George Floyd’s death.
Let me get this straight: Biden says that he does “not think that the American people are racist” and then goes on to rail about “Systemic Racism”.
Meanwhile, the Liberal Trolls on Twitter had been calling Sen. Scott “Uncle Tim” and other racist epitaphs ever since his brilliant rebuttal to Biden’s boring speech last night.
Sen. Scott is 100% correct.
AMERICA IS NOT A RACIST COUNTRY.
However, the Liberal Democrats certainly are…including Dementia Joe, himself.
Back in February of 2007, Delaware Senator Joe Biden described his future boss, contender for the Democrat Presidential Nomination, Barack Hussein Obama, in the following manner…
I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Biden said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”
Liberals’ arrogance often lead them to reveal their own intolerance.
Sleepy Joe became chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in the late 1980s and as Delaware Senator supported a crime bill in 1994, saying at the time that his aim was to control violent crime.
Thomas Frank, a Liberal, wrote an op ed for The Guardian back on April 15, 2016, about the unexpected results of the 1994 Crime Bill. In the article he wrote that…
…what is most shocking in our current journo-historical understanding of the Clinton years is the idea that the mass imprisonment of people of color was an “unintended consequence” of the 1994 crime bill, to quote the New York Daily News’s paraphrase of Hillary Clinton. This is flatly, glaringly false, as the final, ugly chapter of the crime bill story confirms.
Back in the early 1990s, and although they were chemically almost identical, crack and powder cocaine were regarded very differently by the law. The drug identified with black users (crack) was treated as though it were 100 times as villainous as the same amount of cocaine, a drug popular with affluent professionals. This “now-notorious 100-to-one” sentencing disparity, as the New York Times put it, had been enacted back in 1986, and the 1994 crime law instructed the US Sentencing Commission to study the subject and adjust federal sentencing guidelines as it saw fit.
The Sentencing Commission duly recommended that the 100-to-1 sentencing disparity be abolished, largely because (as their lengthy report on the subject put it) “The 100-to-1 crack cocaine to powder cocaine quantity ratio is a primary cause of the growing disparity between sentences for black and white federal defendants.” By the time their report was released, however, Republicans had gained control of Congress, and they passed a bill explicitly overturning the decision of the Sentencing Commission. (Bernie Sanders, for the record, voted against that bill.)
The bill then went to President Clinton for approval. Shortly before it came to his desk he gave an inspiring speech deploring the mass incarceration of black Americans. “Blacks are right to think something is terribly wrong,” he said on that occasion, “… when there are more African American men in our correction system than in our colleges; when almost one in three African American men, in their twenties, are either in jail, on parole, or otherwise under the supervision of the criminal system. Nearly one in three.”
Two weeks after that speech, however, Clinton blandly affixed his signature to the bill retaining the 100-to-1 sentencing disparity, a disparity that had brought about the lopsided incarceration of black people. Clinton could have vetoed it, but he didn’t. He signed it.
Today we are told that mass incarceration was an “unintended consequence” of Clinton’s deeds.
Liberal Democrats have taken the votes of Black Americans for granted for a long time now.
The Democrats, decades after the advent of LBJ’s “Great Society”, naturally assume that they are going to get the majority of black Americans’ votes in every Presidential Election.
They not only expect it, they rely on it.
However, the problem that they are attempting to overcome is the fact that Trump has made great inroads into securing some of that “expected” support from Black American Voters by being responsible for the lowest Black Unemployment Rate in American History before the Covid-19 Pandemic hit.
Candace Owens has done a great job of waking black Americans up to the reality of the Democrats’ feigned “benevolence”.
The problem that the “unintended consequences” of the 1994 Crime Bill, Biden’s racist comment to Charlemagne back in May, and his calling Trump a racist poses for the Democrats is the fact that it shows their hypocrisy.
Instead of fighting against the bill and the “sentencing disparity” which it allowed to continue unabated, Joe performed his imitation of a matador and waved it on through, allowing President Bill “Bubba” Clinton to sign it into law.
And now, unfortunately for Sleepy Joe, the progress of his obvious dementia is causing him to say things which he might be thinking out loud with no filter in between his thought process and his voice box.
Despite what the Main Stream Media and the Democrat Elite on Capitol Hill may get in front of the camera and say, a lot of Black Americans are beginning to wake up to the Plantation Mentality of the Democratic Party.
They know, that given the chance, if Trump runs in 2024, he will bring Black Unemployment back to the record lows seen before the Chinese Coronavirus hit our shores.
Watch for more allegations of Systematic Racism to be made by Biden to try to win back Black Americans.
Even with the Democrats holding the power of the political majority on Capitol Hill, they no longer have the “sure” vote of Black Americans.
And, they are desperate to get it back.

One thought on “Biden Responds to Sen. Scott, Says That He Does “Not Think That the American People are Racist”, Then He Proceeds to “Go Off” Again About Systematic Racism”
Biden was a Northerner segregationist in the 1970s, and best buddies with Jesse Helms (a brilliant conservative but a racist).
