How is this not disqualifying on its face?
Eastland never called #Biden "boy" because he wasn't black. I guarantee you he called black men "boy" and worse.
Why are we on a nostalgia tour of the Jim Crow era with Biden?
This is as terrible as #Biden's stance on abortion, his assurances that Pence and Cheney are actually really nice guys and that #AnitaHill should just get over herself already.
My parents--Biden's generation-- were Civil Rights workers. Talmadge and Eastland who #Biden invoked with fondness tonight, were notorious. These were not names to drop with nostalgia. These men were purveyors of white supremacy. They were no different than Trump. Just smarter.
At some point people have to pay attention to history, to facts. Many of you are so busy dissing #HillaryClinton you've forgotten that she had what is still, to date, our most progressive platform. Match that. Exceed that. But please, do NOT take us back 60 years or more.
