Former US Vice President Joe Biden said that systemic racism in the United States has been around for over 200 years. The politician made such a statement in a video message on the occasion of US Independence Day, which was published on his Twitter.
Biden said that the principle of equality was never fully implemented in the country.
According to him, the idea of the equality of all people survived “200 years of systemic racism in the United States.”
“American history is not a fairy tale,” Biden said.
He notes that in the USA there has always been a struggle between the “idea that everyone is created equal” and the “racism” that “divides” the Americans.
