Daily Beast: Joe Biden thinks that around 10 to 15 percent of Americans are “not very good people,” but that the “vast majority of the people are decent” and want to get along with each other.

The former vice president and presumptive Democratic nominee appeared to get his figure out of thin air during an online town hall event with some of his black supporters on Thursday night.  From 2017, not censored by YouTube.

“Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that,” Biden said during the event, which was hosted by actor Don Cheadle.

“There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are. The vast majority of the people are decent, and we have to appeal to that and we have to unite people—bring them together.”

Biden was discussing the importance of a president setting a good example for the nation on race issues, and accused President Trump of actively working to divide the country and making “the worst of us to come out.”

  1. As far as that percentage of 10 – 15% goes I have some questions, but what surprises me most, is that the main part of this “bad” lot congregates around Washington DC.

    Must be something in the air there.
    The question, of course, is: Are these people already bad before they aim for Washington DC,or do they turn rotten after they arrive there.
    This is something Americans should take into consideration a few days (tongue in cheek) BEFORE they head for the polls.

    The principle of this issue is, of course, not limited to the USA, but a world wide phenomena.
    Power attracts shit!.
    It doesn’t float to the top, we put it there. Every four years, again and again.

    It seems humans judge only words but have a hard time recognizing actions.

    It is like, when as a kid I had to drink milk, which I hated.
    “Think strongly about strawberries, and it will taste like strawberries” my Mom used to say.
    Not true!

    Neither are the betterments we are promised every four years, tasting any better than the putrefied lemons dished out after election day.

    But… for four years we just “grin and bear it”, because next time we will vote for a different and better candidate.
    And so, as Gordon says, it goes.

  2. one of the new third world country to live with a colored revolution, I hope that will happens as happened in Ukronazia where to make a coup (helped by Cia and Mi6) we seen many shooting to police and rioters only to take advantage of the confusion and create a puppet regime.
    We are ALL in front of what happened after the shooting, and from the eyes of many good people all over the Middle East many of them are awaiting for the same outcome of Ukronazia, famine, nazi squadrons which kills people, poor people suffering

  3. this is a very colored revolution, born as did in all Middle East, thanks to many secret agencies which acted for years all around of Middle East, now it’s the turn of another middle east country to explore this route……

  4. We shouldn’t forget that the 1994 crime law passed by Congress and signed by President Bill Clinton was one of the key contributors to mass incarceration in the 1990s. It led to more prison sentences, more prison cells, and more aggressive policing. Blacks were disproportionately more likely to be incarcerated. And if you didn’t know that, “you ain’t black”.
