Former Vice President Joe Biden who is mulling a run in the 2020 Democratic primaries, is coming under fire for his old views on desegregation. Back in the 1970s, desegregation was being rolled out across much of the United States, leading to tensions within communities, particularily white ones.
Then Delaware Senator Joe Biden was one of the leading voices against “busing.” Through busing, some black students were taken to predominately white districts, while some white students were taken to predominately black districts.
We have suppressed the black man for 300 years and the white man is now far ahead in the race for everything our society offers. In order to even the score, we must now give the black man a head start, or even hold the white man back, to even the race.’ I don’t buy that.”

Forced integration and I can tell you it never works when forced. It breeds anger and hatred

The father thing is universal. Research shows that the kids most hurt by lack of fatherhood are boys. Where do we see young men with the most issues? In the communities with the highest rates of fatherlessness, but no one wants to seriously address that problem. They'd rather instead blame racist police.

Yes, the elephant in the room is that the black community in general has anti-success cultural problem. On an individual basis, things like busing can help alleviate this issue, but the problem is a lot broader and bigger.

Biden is an old rich white guy in the Democratic party that is already too alt-right by the new Socialist Democrats.
He has no boxes to check with them as far as identity politics go so he has no appeal.
I was seriously surprised when he threw his hat into the ring...
Because nobody cares about Joe Biden anymore.
