I don't see Biden as a racist.
I see him as a person who likes to stereotype people. Here is an example:
Explaining why schools in Iowa are performing better than those in Washington, D.C., Biden told the Post, “There’s less than one percent of
the population of Iowa that is African American. There is probably less than four of five percent that are minorities. What is in Washington? So look,
it goes back to what you start off with, what you’re dealing with.”
I see Obama as a person who is determined on getting into the White House and I feel that this type of stereotyping could hurt Obama.
Here's what I would do if I were Obama.
I would tell Biden no more stereotyping period.
I would bring up Biden's past history before McCain does and Biden would be by my side to show and express his regret over such words.
I would send Biden into minority schools and churches and areas to show that he does care about them.
The only problem is that if Biden gaffed again it could spell serious trouble for Obama.
How do you think Obama should justify Biden's previous history of stereotyping people?
Should he downplay it?
Should he confront it?
Should he excuse it?
Should he say that Biden is right?
Should he say Biden was misunderstood?
