An extraordinary moment in the debates on Thursday was when Harris took Biden to comment on his work with segregation senators and his previous stance on federal busses for school integration
Bidden called for co-operation with segregation senators James Eastland of Mississippi and Henry Talmage of Georgia in the 1970s gave an example of past civilization in politics. I was in a group with James O. Eastland, "Biden said at the event. "He never called me a boy, he always called me a son." Booker said Biden's reference to the boy was painful given the story of how the term was used to neglect blacks and asked for an excuse for his comments on segregation lawmakers
"You are not joking about calling boys of blacks," the senator said in a statement.
Harris drew attention to Biden's comments during the debated phase on Thursday .] "I do not believe you're a racist," she told him, "and I agree with you, but I also believe – and it is personal, it was painful – to hear you speak of the reputation of two United States senators who have built up their reputation and career in the segregation of race in that country .
"Not only that, but you also work with them to resist the bus," said Harris. given the former vice-president's historic position that the federal government should not interfere with buses to eliminate the desegregation of schools. "And there was a little girl in Calif who was part of the second grade to integrate her public schools, and she went to school every day, "Harris went on." And that little girl was me. "
Biden answered, calling Harris' mischaracterization of my position across the board. "
" But do you agree today that you were not right to oppose buses in America at that time? Do you agree? "" I did not oppose buses in America, "Biden said.
Harris said that almost two decades after Brown against the Education Board, she was part of the second grade to integrate public schools in Berkeley, California.
Here the federal government must enter, "she said. "That's why we have the Law on the Rights and the Civil Rights Act. That is why we need to adopt the Equality Act – that is why we have to move to the ERA, because in history there are times when states fail to preserve the civil rights of all people. "
A bookkeeper does not share a debate with Harris. because he was part of the first group of 10 Democrats who debated on Wednesday with candidates including Warren and O'Rourke.
