Joe Biden continues to struggle when it comes to discussing race. His latest comments about Trump’s racism shows our former Vice President might need a bit of a history lesson.
Biden appears to have a bit of amnesia. We have had more presidents who were openly racist than not. Ronald Reagan supported Apartheid in South Africa, which was a racist system that gave whites political control over 90 percent of the county that was Black. His administration even labeled opponents of Apartheid, like the African National Congress, as being Communists (the same language Lindsay Graham was using). Not to mention Willie Horton and popularizing the racist term “welfare queens.”
