During a Joe Biden campaign livestream on Monday about black Americans and coronavirus, Rep. Marcia Fudge claimed the pandemic proves that “systemic and institutional racism” exist in the United States.
“Black people have always been aware of systemic and institutional racism. COVID-19 just proved to the rest of the country that it exists,” Fudge said. “You know, they talk about underlying health conditions, but we’re not the only people that have them. We live in a country that is obese, not just black people. Heart disease is still the number one killer in this country, not just (of) black people,” she added.
“If we do not elect Joe Biden, we will not recover in my lifetime. I’m not being dramatic, I’m being honest…,” Fudge continued. “We would never be in this place had we had a real leader in the White House. If Joe Biden were there, this would have been handled very, very differently.” She claimed that Biden is “allowing us to interact with people about these very things.”
Claiming “systemic and institutional racism” is the left’s strategem for maintaining their demonstrably false Victim Narrative.
