Joe Biden is Demented Racist Shark Food
Paul Street | counterpunch.org | 2020-03-09
Biden helped author and worked to pass the racist federal mass incarceration Three Strikes crime bill of 1994. He has boasted of his ability to work with segregationists as a U.S. senator in the 1970s, when he opposed federal desegregation busing orders and worried about sending his children to desegregated schools. He boasts about his ability to work with racist Republicans today. He offered creepy racialized praise for presidential candidate Barack Obama by calling him "articulate" and "clean."
