‘View’ Co-host Claims Black GOP Senator Tim Scott Doesn’t Understand What ‘Systemic Racism’ Is

President Barack Obama records an episode of The View at ABC Studios in New York, N.Y., July 28, 2010. Pictured, from left, are Whoopi Goldberg, Barbara Walters, Joy Behar, Sherri Shepherd, and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza) This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House.

Two of The View’s co-hosts had radically different takes on Republican Senator Tim Scott’s rebuttal to President Biden’s first address to Congress.  

Liberal Joy Behar believed Biden gave a “wonderful” address but was appalled by Scott’s take that the country wasn’t racist.  

“Tim Scott, he does not seem to understand — and a lot of them don’t seem to understand the difference between a racist country and systemic — systemic racism. They don’t seem to get the difference,” Behar remarked. “Maybe it’s not a racist country. Maybe Americans, the majority, are not racist. But we live in a country with systemic racism.”

She went on to explain that systemic racism isn’t just about people being racists, but the impact of racism on education and living conditions.  “The fact that Tim Scott cannot acknowledge this is appalling. How can you go out there and say that when you just said two minutes ago you were the object and the victim of discrimination?” She continued. Then he says this is not a racist country. At least acknowledge that there is systemic racism. That’s what I wanted to hear from him and he didn’t say it.”

During the discourse, co-host Meghan McCain called out liberals for their racist attacks on Scott over Twitter. “[Scott] was trending on Twitter being called ‘Uncle Tom’ and ‘Uncle Tim,’ which many Americans consider a racial slur,” McCain commented. “It’s okay to be racist and use racial slurs towards black men as long as they are Republicans. I’m disgusted by the response to him.”

She went on to slam liberals for how they’re quick to call out racism until it’s directed at their political opponents. “Don’t talk to me about the problems we have in this country with racism when it’s okay to speak and treat a black man this way who happens to be the most famous Republican black senator in the country. It’s okay to treat him that way,” She continued.

McCain also turned her ire towards Twitter, who allowed the “Uncle Tim” to trend for hours without taking action. “It’s okay to let it trend against Senator Scott. I don’t believe it would have happened if he was a Democrat,” McCain concluded. “It hurt me, saddened me, and disgusted me. It literally ruined my night and my morning because of it. I’m so grossed out

In truth, Obama speaks through Obiden. It was Obama who was just 2 miles from the white house directing the subversion against Trump and the American people the whole time. Now he is Biden’s puppet master, which is why it feels the same as when Obama was in office. This will keep happening as long as ‘We The People’ keep allowing them to steal elections.

Obummer brought it back. The only way the Nazi party of democraps can have power is to keep blacks as victims under their thumb and their foot on their neck. Too bad so many BLACK AMERICANS cannot see behind the masks that the democraps are hiding behind. They are and have always been the party of racism just read a history book, all the civil war men they attack were all democraps,jim crow was a democrap, they filibustered the Senate to stop equal rights,black voting,to end segregation ect. They talk about the semitic racism in education…..Well the democrap liberals have been destroying our education system since the early 60’s so WHO is to blame? They don’t educate they DUMB DOWN AND INDOCTRINATE. LOOK HOW STUPID THE LAST 3 GENERATIONS HAVE BECOME!!!! College kids go to college and leave dumber than they were when they started. A college degree especially from ivy league, Berkeley type institutions are as worthless as a wet rool of toilet paper, total waste of time and money unless you are going to learn how to operate a beer bong or learn how to protest. It blows my mind that anyone even tunes in to these low I.Q. knuckle dragging morons on the herd. They are just fat cow talking heads, if you total up all their i.q.’s together it would total -30. Who cares what behar or no talent goldberg says anyway?

I’ll tell you what systemic racism is. It’s the result of nitwits like those on the View constantly shoving racism to the fore of their listeners’ attention. Such democrats have invented this absurd and violent form of political campaigning and now have created a partition between the races, again.

Most of us thought it couldn’t happen. Blacks and whites have been partying together, eating at each other’s homes, carpooling together, marrying each other and all the normal things that were a problem 70 years ago. Leftist fools have unraveled improved race relations again, with a capital “R” this time. 

Leftist bosses now are engaged in another hysterical crusade to create hatred for Trump and improve their chances of winning the 2024 general election. These manufactured spectacles hammer on a nonexistent reversal of improved race relations earned over the past half century. 

Unhinged big city bosses will reduce police department funding or support racist driven violence on peaceable, lawful citizens. Journeymen cops will hesitate allowing perps to escape justice. It’s the nature of doing business with America’s greatest criminal enterprise — the democrat party.

Other results of democrat strategy are peaceful reactions. Once again non-blacks are crossing the street, avoiding eye contact, catching the next elevator, mumbling when verbally greeted and skipping meetings where vocal blacks are likely to attend. Executives more carefully scrutinize job applications. Lenders tighten qualifications.

We’ve seen it after every racist based uprising. Hopefully, concerned voters will reject this racial flimflam and fix much of the democrat wrong by reelecting Trump.

Systemic means of or relating to a system. Are there racist systems in this country? Yes, especially in education in Democrat run cities. Indeed, the Democratic Party is a system of racism with its black overseers on the Democratic Party plantation which included the late Elijah Cummings and several others still living.

History proves systemic racism is part and parcel of the Democrat party. The Republican party was actually created to end slavery. You’ll never hear these lying hags (witches in disguise as talk show hosts) admit this, yet alone apologize for being the purveyors of race wars. Truth is foreign to these globalist psychopaths.

Sick of these people telling us what to think, what racists means and in general really ignorant self centered bull crap coming out of her mouth. Hopefully she’ll be off the air soon but regardless I stopped watching that program during the Trump Administration’s four years.

United States isn’t racist or it’s system. Point out in the U. S. Constitution where it’s racists or systemic racist. Foreigners and people that haven’t read and comprehend the U. S. Constitution don’t know the difference between U. S. Government and the everyday people. A free people can discriminate and be racists if they so choose to be. It’s the U. S. Government under the U. S. Constitution that can’t discriminate or be racists because if they were you would get genocide.
