The Democratic Party worked tirelessly to blind African-Americans about its long and disturbing history of institutional racism. But repeated comments by former Vice President Joe Biden are a stinging reminder that left-leaning politicians have lied.
For decades, liberals posed as social justice warriors claiming they are determined to reverse the bias against people of color. But no matter how many times African-Americans supported Democrat politicians, nothing changed until President Donald Trump’s “America First” agenda created jobs, higher wages, and opportunities for citizens of all walks of life. Biden’s inflammatory comments tie the Democratic Party to its racist past.
Let’s take a look at three of Biden’s worst offenses as of May 2020.
1: “You Ain’t Black!”
Biden recently set off a firestorm after making overtly racist statements on the Breakfast Club radio show. Hosted by African-American celebrity Charlamagne tha God, the sometimes bewildered 77-year-old presumptive Democrat nominee went full-rant: “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black!”
The remark was met with widespread condemnation by prominent African-American leaders on both sides of the aisle. But the most damaging rebuke may have come from the Breakfast Club host himself.
“The whole system needs to be dismantled and rebuilt, and he has been a very intricate part of that system,” Charlamagne said of the interview. “He really was one of the people on the front lines when it came to the war on drugs and mass incarceration.”
What has not made splashy headlines in the mainstream media is that a Biden campaign official tried to stop the interview. Apparently, the former VP also said that black people in jail “can’t read.”
2: Bragging About Working with Racists
It may make your head spin, but Biden has such deep-seated racism in his DNA that he once called former President Barack Obama “a bright and clean” black man. Obviously, that implies he thinks African-Americans are generally neither bright nor clean. That being said, Biden has a troubling history of working cooperatively with known racists tied to the Ku Klux Klan.
“I was in a caucus with James O. Eastland (and Herman Talmadge),” Biden once said, mocking the Southern drawl. “He never called me boy. He always called me son. Well, guess what? At least there was some civility. We got things done.”
The former Senator from Delaware certainly did get things done. He is credited with orchestrating mass-incarceration laws during the Clinton Administration that doled out disproportionately high sentences to black offenders. President Trump and the GOP led the charge to strike down the Biden-supported laws.
3: Black Kids are “Stupid Roaches“
In many ways, Biden’s remarks are ongoing Freudian slips, much like Hillary Clinton’s comment she planned to put a lot of coal mines out of business. As disgraceful as Clinton’s intention to crush American companies was, few statements are as disgusting as Biden implying African-Americans are inferior.
“We should challenge these students. We should challenge students in these schools to have advanced placement programs in these schools,” Biden said. “We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”
Maybe these were “bright and clean” African-American children and not the ones Biden referred to as “roaches” in another statement.
Biden once said, “I think the Democratic Party could stand a liberal George Wallace.” The former Democrat Alabama governor and segregationist is best-remembered for blocking black students from entering the University of Alabama.
If you are having a problem figuring out the difference between racist Joe Biden and job-creating Donald Trump, well, you ain’t paying attention.
