Jill Biden was enraged when Kamala Harris used the race card, bringing up Joe Biden’s history of racial issues.
“I’d like to comment on the topic of race as the only black person on this stage,” Harris said. “So, on the subject of race, I couldn’t agree more that it’s still a topic that’s not being discussed openly and frankly. There isn’t a black man I know who hasn’t been profiled or discriminated against in any way, whether he’s a relative, an acquaintance, or a coworker.”

“When I was younger, my sister and I had to deal with a neighbor who threatened us that her parents wouldn’t let us play with them because we were black,” she added. “And I’ll also add that — that in this campaign, we’ve also learned — and I’m going to direct this at Vice President Biden right now — I don’t believe you’re a bigot, and I agree with you when you say it’s important to find common ground.”
“But I also believe that it was hurtful to hear you speak about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputations and careers on the segregation of race in this country,” she continued.
Then Biden spoke up.
“It’s a complete misrepresentation of my position,” he said. “I didn’t applaud racists. That is not the case, for starters. Second, if we want to get this campaign litigated over who supports civil rights and whether or not I did, I’m willing to do so. I used to work as a public defender. I did not pursue a career as a lawyer. When my city was in flames because of Dr. King’s assassination, I came out and quit a good law firm to become a public defender.”
