Biden apologizes for warm comments towards segregationists

July 08, 2019

On Saturday, former Vice President Joe Biden apologized for speaking warmly about his working relationships with Southern segregationists.

“Now, was I wrong a few weeks ago to somehow give the impression to people that I was praising those men who I was successfully opposed time and again?” he said to a crowd in which many African Americans were present. “Yes, I was. I regret it. I’m sorry for any of the pain and misconception I may have caused anybody.”

The audience applauded, and Biden asked if he should let “that misstep define 50 years of my record for fighting for civil rights, racial justice in this country?”

“I hope not,” said the former vice president. “I don’t think so. That just isn’t an honest assessment of my record.”

Opponents of the former vice president have sought to scrutinize his senatorial career such as his support for the 1994 Crime Bill which led to the mass incarceration of predominantly African American men and his working history with Southern segregationist lawmakers.

Instead, Biden tried to focus on his time as vice president under Barack Obama.

“It’s as if my opponents want you to believe I served from 1972 until 2008 – and then took a hiatus for the next eight years,” said Biden. “They don’t want to talk much about my time as vice president of the United States.”

“I was vetted by him and ten serious lawyers he appointed go back at every single thing [in his record],” Biden continued. “From finances to anything I had done, everything. And he [Obama] selected me. I’ll take his judgement about my record, my character, my ability to handle the job over anyone else’s.”

“I know that many want this campaign to be about my past,” Biden acknowledged. “I get it. That’s the game. But this isn’t a game. Every one of you know, no matter who you’re for, I know in your bones, know this election is different.”
