The guilty verdict in the murder trial of former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin “can be a giant step forward in the march toward justice in America,” President Biden and Vice President Harris said Tuesday.
That march, they added, has too rarely delivered “basic accountability” for Black Americans.
America has a “long history of systemic racism,” they said, calling it a “stain on the nation’s soul.”
A panel of jurors found Chauvin guilty on Tuesday on all three charges in connection with the May 2020 death of George Floyd — the Black man in Minnesota who died after he was seen on video – handcuffed – saying “I can’t breathe” as Chauvin kneeled on Floyd’s neck.
Floyd’s death sparked nationwide protests last spring and summer over police brutality against minorities and systemic racism.
Chauvin, 45, was charged with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. After the jury announced the verdict, Chauvin’s bail was immediately revoked and he was led away with hands cuffed behind his back.
Biden and Harris, following the verdict, took the podium at the White House.
Harris, speaking first, thanking the jury, and the Floyd family, saying the verdict brought “a sigh of relief” but “cannot take away the pain.”
“A measure of justice is not the same as equal justice,” Harris said. “This verdict brings us a step closer and the fact is we still have work to do. We still must reform the system.”
Harris added: “America has a long history of systemic racism.”
Biden then took the podium, saying Floyd’s murder was one “in the full light of day.”
“It ripped the blinders off for the whole world to see the systemic racism,” Biden said. “Systemic racism — a stain on our nation’s soul.”
“The knee on the neck of justice for Black Americans — profound fear and trauma, the pain, exhaustion that Black and Brown Americans experience every single day,” Biden said. “The murder of George Floyd launched a summer of protest we hadn’t seen since the Civil Rights [era] in the ’60s.”
Biden said that the protests “unified people of every race and generation in peace and with purpose to say, ‘Enough, enough, enough of these senseless killings.'”
“This can be a giant step forward in the march toward justice in America,” he said.
Biden touted officers for “testifying against a fellow officer,” saying they “should be commended,” and the jury who “carried out their civic duty in the midst of an extraordinary moment, under extraordinary pressure.”
“For so many, it feels like it took all of that for the judicial system to deliver just, just basic accountability,” Biden said, adding that “racial disparities” exist in “policing and in our criminal justice system more broadly.”
So, Joe Biden is calling America a Racist Country.
Irony is embarrassed.
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 the Biden and his handlers face is the fact that Trump made great inroads into securing some of that “expected” support from Black American Voters.
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 and Biden’s racist comment to Charlemagne last year poses for the Democrats is the fact that it shows the hypocrisy. is attempting to blame the amount of arrests made of black Americans on “Systematic Racism”.
The Democrats are the ones who tore apart the Black Family United with the advent of their “Great Society” under President Lyndon Baines Johnson and the subsequent generations who either could not or did not wish to get off of the Government Dole.
Unfortunately for Sleepy Joe and the Democrat Elite, Americans are very aware that they are not only supporting the racial unrest in our cities, their Vice-President Kamala Harris has bailed out rioters.
I thought Sleepy Joe was supposed to “unite” us..
With the existence of “Uniters” like President “Sleepy Joe” Biden and his Vice-President, “Heels Up” Harris, America’s “racial divide” has become another Grand Canyon..
