President Joe Biden used Derek Chauvin’s guilty conviction Tuesday to, ironically, once again chastise the United States for being systemically racist down to its very “soul.”
To borrow a line from his White House remarks that night, “Enough. Enough. Enough.”
Enough of the president painting America and its people as racist when it simply is not true.
Biden claimed the killing of George Floyd “ripped the blinders off for the whole world to see the systemic racism … that is a stain our nation’s soul; the knee on the neck of justice for black Americans; the profound fear and trauma, the pain, the exhaustion that black and brown Americans experience every single day,” according to an official White House transcript of his remarks.
Did he watch the trial? Chauvin was convicted of three crimes, none related to race.
