BREAKING NEWS – Houston, Texas – Former Vice President Joe Biden referenced record players while answering a question during Thursday’s 2020 Democratic debate about how to repair the legacy of slavery — and the internet collectively scratched its head.
Moderator Linsey Davis of ABC brought up Biden’s 1975 statement that he’d “be damned if I feel responsible to pay for what happened 300 years ago” and then asked him “What responsibility do you think that Americans need to take to repair the legacy of slavery in our country?”
“Look, there is institutional segregation in this country,” the 2020 Democratic primary front-runner said, continuing to address racial inequality in the educational system. “It’s not that [some parents] don’t want to help. They don’t know what quite to do: Play the radio, make sure the television… make sure you have the record player on at night playing those big black cds.” Further confirmation that Biden was confused on what time period he was in, was when he thought Linsey Davis was Ed Sullivan.
