Sen. Cory Booker vowed during Thursday’s Democrat presidential debate to create an office to confront the mythical “problem of white supremacy.”
“Racism exists. The question isn’t who is racist, it’s who is and isn’t doing something about racism,” Booker said. “This isn’t an issue that just started yesterday. It’s not just an issue that we hear a president that can’t condemn white supremacy,” though President Trump has in fact condemned it on numerous occasions.
“We have systemic racism that is eroding our nation, our healthcare to the criminal justice system,” Booker added. “We have a criminal justice system that is so racially biased. We have more African Americans under criminal supervision today than all the slaves in 1850.”
“If I am president of the United States, I will create an office in the White House to deal with the problem of white supremacy and hate crimes and we will make sure that systemic racism is dealt with in substantive plans,” he said. Racism is not systemic in America, however, but it is endemic in the Democrat Party.
