After the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial was announced this week, Joe Biden accused America of having a systemic racism problem.
But if that’s true, isn’t he part of the problem? He’s been in office for almost 50 years.
Amazingly, Jen Psaki was asked about this at the White House.
Naturally, she dodged the question.

White House Dodges Questions on Joe Biden’s Role in History of ‘Systemic Racism’
White House press secretary Jen Psaki dodged questions about President Joe Biden’s role in the history of “systemic racism” Wednesday.
“To what extent does President Biden acknowledge his own role in systemic racism? And how does that inform his own policy positions?” Steven Nelson asked Psaki.
“One of the president’s core objectives is addressing racial injustice in this country,” Psaki replied, sidestepping the question. “Not through his rhetoric but through his actions,” she added.
Psaki then detailed Biden’s pending legislative “action” before saying that Biden has “asked his leadership team, here in the White House, to prioritize these issues in his presidency,” which she added, “is current, today, and not from thirty years ago.”
Nelson followed up, “Does he [Biden] believe it’s important to accept his own culpability…”
Psaki cut Nelson off, ” I think I have answered your question.”
The reporter initially prefaced his query by detailing Joe Biden’s history of being an “architect of federal laws in the 1980s and the 1990s that disproportionately jailed black people and contributed to what many people see as systemic racism.”

Does the Biden White House think he can accuse America of racism and then exempt Biden himself?
Sorry, it doesn’t work that way.
