Such solid support helps explain why a 77-year-old white man is leading the most diverse presidential field in history among black voters.

After Kamala Harris challenged Joe Biden’s past opposition to school busing in a nationally televised Democratic presidential debate, the former vice president who prides himself on strong relationships in the black community was in an unfamiliar place, playing defense on race.

But Bebe Coker had a message for the man she’s known for decades: don’t back down. The 81-year-old education activist remembered the history differently than Harris’ portrayal, recalling black parents encouraging Biden to reject forcing black students to attend white schools.

    Re: Democratic-Socialism

    Why are some Black Americans supporting Demorats? Because they’re freaken STUPID or COMMUNISTS!

    Do any of you know anything about this vile piece of garbarge? What about when Joe Biden chaired the Senate Judiciary over Clarence Thomas and tried to railroad him?

    Communists use “The Curly Affect” to keep Americans poor.
