Okay. But....is it possible for statements that ARE racist to come from anything other than racists? Shocked

"So look, it goes back to what you start off with, what you're dealing with."

THIS part of his quote is, to me, the most indicative of ignorance.

And--again--how would YOU have constructed a response to that Elephant-In-The-Room question in a way that did not invoke racial inequity?

"We have failed our urban youth in this country when it comes to education. We don't give them and their families the resources and support that they need to thrive. Add in the years and years of systematic racism that our minority students have had to face, Washington DC faces challenges that Iowa just does not have. This is why it is essential that we work tirelessly to close the education gap, to give all our students everything they need to succeed, no matter where they live, how rich or how poor, or the color of their skin."

Schools failing minorities vs. minorities failing schools.

Seriously. It is not that hard.

If you can answer a question about education quality without saying "Well, they don't have as many black kids there ... " how can you possibly think you can handle this campaign?

True enough.

Mind you, I am NOT Biden's biggest fan, or anything like that. I am a bit disturbed by the mentality that he might be The Best Choice To Beat Trump, probably driven by his association with our last humanly decent administration--just an indicator of how low we've allowed our Bar of Quality to fall.

That’s not a gaffe.

Certain candidates need to stop trying to woo Trump voters to the detriment of actual Democrats.

Hey Joe, why do schools in Iowa perform better than those in DC?

"There's less than one percent of the population of Iowa that is African American. There is probably less than four of five percent that are minorities. What is in Washington? So look, it goes back to what you start off with, what you're dealing with."


What is the context for this quote?

Very simple: IF you find Biden worthy of your aspersions re: his calling Cheney a decent man, AND it's in the context of criticizing a presidential rival to Trump, then give Fair Credit to Trump for doing far more egregious things, i.e., praising Kim Jong Un, Putin, White Supremacists, etc.


Why is it far more egregious to praise Putin or Kim Jong Un (who we want to act in ways we prefer) than call Cheney a 'decent man' (and was not even a decent man before the Iraq war)? (Biden may have done so in order to pick up some Republican votes) Cheney has a big lead in deaths and destruction.

Trump never praised white supremacists.

You have no idea what your talking about here. There is no point in further dialogue with you on this.

Yes. He. Did. His exact words were: "THERE ARE GOOD PEOPLE ON BOTH SIDES" in referencing the clashing parties at that 'event'.

Then he backtracks and makes his stupid retractions, cuz he knows most of his followers are stupid enough to buy it. CharlottesvilleHoax my A$$! Laughing

Saying “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally” is not a retraction or backtracking on "But you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides.". And they were said in the same press conference less than a minute apart.

But there is a way that people confidently continue to push the #FinePeopleHoax despite Trump specifically excluding the neo-Nazis and white nationalists. They look to another statement as giving them license to disregard his specific exclusion: "No, no. There were people in that rally, and I looked the night before. If you look, they were people protesting very quietly the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee. "

I don't know if there were any photos of people peacefully protesting the night before, as it looked like an event out of a movie with a large number of 20 something college educated males holding torches (and in video, chanting). But besides appearing to have the wrong picture of the previous night (peacefully protesting), Trump then talks about the daytime protest having both types (very fine people and not very fine people): "The following day, it looked like they had some rough, bad people -- neo-Nazis, white nationalists, whatever you want to call them. But you had a lot of people in that group that were there to innocently protest and very legally protest, because you know -- I don't know if you know, they had a permit. The other group didn't have a permit."

Biden not apologizing for remarks on segregationist senators

Quote:
Joe Biden refused calls to apologize Wednesday for saying that the Senate "got things done" with "civility" even when the body included segregationists with whom he disagreed.

His rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination, including the two major black candidates in the contest, roundly criticized Biden's comments. But Biden didn't back down and was particularly defiant in the face of criticism from New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, who said the former vice president should apologize for his remarks.

Biden countered that it was Booker who should apologize because the senator "should know better" than to question his commitment to civil rights.

"There's not a racist bone in my body," Biden said. "I've been involved in civil rights my whole career."

Speaking on CNN, Booker responded: "I was raised to speak truth to power and that I shall never apologize for doing that. And Vice President Biden shouldn't need this lesson."


Quote:
"I have to tell Vice President Biden, as someone I respect, that he is wrong for using his relationships with Eastland and Talmadge as examples of how to bring our country together," said Booker, who is African American.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, a fellow Democratic presidential candidate and a white man who is married to a black woman, tweeted: "It's 2019 & @JoeBiden is longing for the good old days of 'civility' typified by James Eastland. Eastland thought my multiracial family should be illegal."

California Sen. Kamala Harris, a black presidential candidate, said Biden was "coddling" segregationists in a way that "suggests to me that he doesn't understand ... the dark history of our country" — a characterization Biden's campaign rejects.

Former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke, another 2020 candidate, said, "For the vice president to somehow say that what we're seeing in this country today is a function of partisanship or a lack of bipartisanship completely ignores the legacy of slavery and the active suppression of African Americans and communities of color right now."

Joe Biden to rich donors: "Nothing would fundamentally change" if he's elected

Quote:
No one’s standard of living will change, nothing would fundamentally change.”

Biden went on to say that the rich should not be blamed for income inequality, pleading to the donors, “I need you very badly.”

“I hope if I win this nomination, I won’t let you down. I promise you,” he added.

Is Biden the right choice, at the right time?

I see him dropping significantly in the national polls after each debate.

Personally, I wish he'd stayed out of the race.

His argument with Booker is ridiculous.

Joe: I can work with segregationist..they’ve never called me “boy”
Cory:...um..dude....
Joe: you owe me an apology Cory.

And I thought Bernie wasn’t great with race issues..Christ...

Biden called Booker to quell tensions. Things just got worse

Quote:
“I find it remarkable that the surrogate talking points they were sending around, as they were trying to contain this, include no mention of the language the vice president used and instead tried to spin that the vice president is being criticized for working with people he disagreed with,” a Booker aide said. “That’s nonsense and speaks volumes to what they know is true, which is, he should be apologizing for what he said.”


Quote:
“Cory shared directly what he said publicly — including helping Vice President Biden understand why the word ‘boy’ is painful to so many,” said Sabrina Singh, Booker’s campaign spokeswoman. “Cory believes that Vice President Biden understands why the word ‘boy’ is painful to so many. Cory believes that Vice President Biden should take responsibility for what he said and apologize to those who were hurt.”
