Biden Fumbles Race Question During Summit, Claims White Women Do Not Get Pulled Over

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden flopped a question during the Second Step Presidential Justice Forum on Saturday where he implied in his answer that white women are never pulled over by law enforcement.

BizPac Review reports “a young black audience member” asked the former vice president how he and his family should respond during an interaction with police officers.

“If I were your daughter, what advice would you give me the next time I am stopped by the police?” the individual asked.

“If you were my daughter, you’d be a Caucasian girl and you wouldn’t be pulled over,” Biden answered. “That’s what’s wrong. Institutional racism should no longer exist. As president, I’ll put forward change to help put an end to it.”

It should be noted that Biden has previously struggled with questions on interracial issues as RealClearPolitics reports he once described racism as a “white man’s problem.”

“It’s a white man’s problem. White men are responsible for it, not black men,” he said during a South Carolina campaign stop over the summer.

And, Biden is not the only Democratic candidate in recent history that has botched this issue as Senator Bernie Sanders previously suggested that white people do not live in ghettos or know what it is like to be poor.

“When you’re white, you don’t know what it’s like to be living in a ghetto,” Sanders said during his 2016 presidential primary run. “You don’t know what it’s like to be poor. You don’t know what it’s like to be hassled when you walk down the street or you get dragged out of a car.”
