Happy MLK Jr. Day.
Never forget–

Joe Biden delivered the eulogy at KKK Kleagle Robert Byrd’s funeral.

Joe Biden warned about young black men becoming “predators on our streets” when pushing the 1994 crime bill, back when Democrats cared about crime. And in 1977 Joe Biden warned that non-orderly racial integration policies would cause his children to grow up in “racial jungles.”

Desperation met stupidity on the corner of bad luck and despair, and the democratic party was born.

Biden: ‘Make sure you have the record player on’ so children hear more words

Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) drew online chuckles and some confusion when he said parents should turn on record players for children at night during the third Democratic primary debate Thursday.

Biden said there is “institutional segregation in this country” while addressing racially based gaps in education, housing and other issues during the debate, suggesting programs to bring social workers into homes to address inequalities.

“We bring social workers into homes with parents to help them deal with how to raise their children. It’s not that they don’t want to help. They don’t know quite what to do — play the radio, make sure the television, excuse me, make sure you have the record player on at night,” Biden said.

“A kid coming from a very poor school, a very poor background, will hear 4 million words fewer spoken by the time they get there,” Biden said.

Greg Schultz, Biden’s campaign manager, was quick to support the candidate, tweeting an article about the popularity of records and sharing “Just so everyone knows – record players are really popular (we have one at home!)”

But some Twitter users went online looking for answers on the former vice president’s comments.

Others added their own jokes about Biden’s suggestion.
