Joe Biden Spreads Lies about Blacks

Pres. Joe Biden gave this speech, after watching a silly Emmett Till movie:
The Emmett Till Antilynching Act, making lynching a federal hate crime.

You know, folks, lynching is pure terror, enforcing the lie that not everyone belongs in America and not everyone is created equal. Pure terror to systematically undermine hard-fought civil rights. Innocent men, women, children hung by a noose from trees. Bodies burned, drowned, castrated.

Their crimes? Trying to vote. Trying to go to school. Trying to own a business. Trying to re- — preach the gospel. False — false accusations of murder, arson, robbery. Lynched for simply being Black, nothing more. With white crowds, white families gathered to celebrate the spectacle, taking pictures of the bodies and mailing them as postcards.

Hard to believe, but that’s what was done. And some people still want to do that.

Hard to believe, because it is entirely false. No one was ever "Lynched for simply being Black, nothing more." Nobody wants to send pictures of it on postcards.
You know, before 14-year-old Emmett Till left on his trip to visit his family in Mississippi, Ms. Till, a teacher who knew the history, reminded him: “Be very careful how you speak. Say ‘yes, sir,’ ‘no, ma’am.’ Don’t hesitate to humble yourself if you have to get down on your knees.”
If he had followed that advice, he would be alive.
That conversation is not in the distant past. Same talk today. So many Black and brown family — parents have to have that similar conversation with their children, worrying about whether they’ll come home from a walk down the street or playing in the park or just driving their car — like we saw Tyre Nichols, just last month — and becoming a victim to too many acts of hate and violence unleashed on those known and unknown.
No, Nichols was not lynched in a racist hate crime. He was beaten by Black cops while resisting arrest.

I don't know whether Biden is too senile to understand these falsehoods. He was reading prepared remarks off a teleprompter. The White House is run by folks who stir up racial hatred at every opportunity.

And stories of Black racism are all over the news. Blacks pay more income taxes, and get audited more. They do not visit national parks as much. Black CNN anchor Don Lemon appears to have been fired for saying that the slightly brown-skinned Nikki Haley has aged past her prime.

Update: Possible Lemon will be allowed back, after sensitivity training. He may have to learn details about menopausal women, and how be sensitive towards them.
