BIDEN—THE GREAT LIBERAL AGAINST RACISM
Vice President Joe Biden said to a predominantly black audience in Virginia that the Republicans are “going to put y’all back in chains.” Giuliani and Republicans accused Biden of racism. Richard Durbin said “There isn’t a racist bone in Joe Biden’s body….”
Durbin’s suggesting that Biden doesn’t have a racist bone in his body is not realistic and is in itself racist. In order to rid ourselves of racism we have to recognize it in ourselves and grow beyond it.
To naively believe that we have no racism is simpleminded and indicative of liberal fantasy. Racism is what it is and we should not be ashamed of it but deal with it so that it doesn’t interfere with human relations.
Making racism a bigger deal than it is gives it more credibility and power. For Biden to take credit as the great liberal leader of anti-racism is ridiculous.
If we are to eradicate racism we must realistically embrace it and understand it.
