COVID-19/JOE BIDEN/RACISM: “We have to root out to systemic racism… That’s why we have to triple the money we’re spending on Title One schools, those schools that come from low tax base areas, so that we can in fact provide the kind of early education for three and four and five year olds, because we know when you do that, you increase exponentially the prospects of success, no matter what you– where you come from, Black, white, Hispanic, Asian American and so there’s so much we can do.
And the public is ready, the blinders have been taken off. They’ve seen in this COVID crisis who the people who have been lifting them up, who the people are risking their lives, who is stocking the grocery shelves, who are the first responders. And I just think we have an enormous opportunity. Enormous.”
