So we couldn't have a debate about #ClimateChange, but apparently the next debate is going to be about #segregation and #busing. In 2019. So here is some data.

This issue was decided by the US Supreme Court in 1954 in Brown v. Topeka Board of Ed, which desegregated the schools. But since white people still refused to integrate the schools, we needed another #SCOTUS ruling.

In 1971 the #SCOTUS ruled--UNANIMOUSLY, in an opinion written by conservative Chief Justice Warren Burger-- in Swann v. Charlotte-Mecklenberg Board of Ed that busing was essential to speeding up the process of desegregation mandated in 1954 by Brown.

This interview!
Apparently there's no one under 65 on Biden's team with any influence to tell him that 71% of Americans support #M4A among other things.

Exclusive: Biden expresses skepticism of Democrats' leftward tilt and AOC's mass appeal

cnn.com/2019/07/05/pol…
#Biden seems not to have even read the demographics from 2016 or the issues voters prioritized in 2018 (climate, healthcare, immigration, guns). He resorts to referring to AOC as "bright" but "not representative," which is how he famously referred to Obama in 2007.
2/
#Biden also says he wasn't prepared for #KamalaHarris to come after him because she knows him & knew his late son, Beau. (He needs to stop using Beau for sympathy points. He should reference his living son, Hunter, who gave a heart-wrenching interview about his addiction.)
