Joe Biden Didn’t Just Praise Segregationists. He Also Spent Years Fighting Busing

Former Vice President Joe Biden made headlines last week when he fondly reminisced about his “civil” relationship in the 1970s and 1980s.

During that time, he worked closely with segregationist senators James Eastland of Mississippi and Herman Talmadge of Georgia.

While Biden’s recent comments made the news, far less attention has been paid to the former vice president’s actual record.

In the 1970s, then-Senator Biden was a fierce critic of Delaware’s attempts to bus students in an effort to integrate its schools.

Democracy Now! speaks with National Book Award-winning author Jonathan Kozol about Biden’s track record.
