(TheRedWire.com) – Over the last three months, President Joe Biden has made race a central part of his rhetoric. He often refers to the police and other government institutions as “systematically racist.” At the same time, he tries to walk a fine line by saying that most police are public servants who work in challenging environments. On Wednesday, April 28, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) declared that the United States is not a racist country. He added that it’s wrong to fight discrimination by discriminating against people and added that politicians shouldn’t be using the pain of history to stop debating today’s pressing issues.

On Thursday, Vice President Kamala Harris doubled down on the administration’s doublespeak. While acknowledging that America is not a racist country, she said America must still be truthful about racism’s history and its presence in society today. So, does that mean America is racist? It’s a bit confusing. She went on to applaud Biden for speaking out on the matter and having the courage to attack it head-on.
So, let’s try to understand. On the one hand, America isn’t racist. On the other hand, should Biden be praised for attacking the racism that doesn’t exist?
