It is according to South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham who made those recent remarks, Black Enterprise reported.
He said recently that “America is not a racist country,” and he cited that President Barack Obama was formerly elected to the highest office and Vice President Kamla Harris is presently in office.
According to the New York Post, during an appearing on Fox News this past weekend, Graham shared his views on systemic racism after being asked about the recent guilty conviction of former Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin for killing the unarmed George Floyd, Black Enterpirse reported.
“So our systems are not racist. America is not a racist country. Within every society, you have bad actors. The Chauvin trial was a just result. What’s happening in Ohio where the police officer had to use deadly force to prevent a young girl from being stabbed to death is a different situation in my view,” he said in the article.
“So this attack on police and policing, reform the police, yes; call them all racist, no. You know, America is a work in progress but best, best place on the planet and Joe Biden spent a lot of time running the place down. I wish he would stop it,” Graham said per the article.
