But 44 years ago, facing a backlash against busing from white voters, the future vice president voiced concerns not just about the policy of busing, which he had supported when first seeking election in 1972, but about the impact of desegregation on American society. He argued that segregation was good for blacks and was what they wanted.
I think the concept of busing that we are going to integrate people so that they all have the same access and they learn to grow up with one another and all the rest, is a rejection of the whole movement of black pride, said Biden. Desegregation, he argued, was a rejection of the entire black awareness concept, where black is beautiful, black culture should be studied; and the cultural awareness of the importance of their own identity, their own individuality.
Mark Levin leading with this.
Asked if he was a racist.
Biden replied...I don’t know.
Yeah. Remember Southie in ‘74. He was marketing to his constituency: Irish Catholics.
Who could ever accuse Plugs of being consistent?
He knows all about groping women if nothing else.
Fellow dem opposition thinning the herd already.
Hillary’s minions clearing her path?
The groper has no shame or sense for that matter.
Biden is right about the black pride thing.
There are a lot of black people who would agree with him on this.
They don’t want to intergrate with whites.
They don’t like whites. WHITE liberals will be upset with Biden, but a lot of black people would agree.
There are lots of rumors he’s considering a run so it’s possible someone wanted to kneecap him.
This is more fun than “Game of Thrones”
(Not that I watch Game of Thrones)
So Biden was stupid back in 1972. Not surprising.
Hey its all good, he’s EVOLVED(Like a Pokemon I guess) and he has a D next to his name
Biden isnt necessarily wrong.
I lived with some blacks and several were for separate but equal. Was quite surprised. They also thought dating white women was fine for them, but not for a white guy to dTe a black girl.
An eye opening experience I decided I wasnt going to repeat again.
Clinton scouting out next park for future “Fostering”
Thats what the pic looked like to me.
Levin brought this up on tonight’s show.
The funniest thing ever (which I’m sure any and all media is buried) was when Biden was explaining to constituents about Obama, “Sure he’s black, but he’s well educated...and he’s clean.” Thanks, Joe, please stay off my side.
