Biden: Systemic racism in US present beyond police

Former United States Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden said that "systemic racism" in the US is present in the police, as well as in other areas.

"It's across the board. It's in housing, it's in education, and it's in everything we do. It's real. It's genuine. It's serious. And it is — it is able to be dealt with," Biden said in an interview with CBS. The Democrat added that he laid out a plan on how he would deal with the issue if elected in November, which would include a national standard on appropriate policing.

The comments come amid nationwide protests in response to the police killing of African-American man George Floyd after he was apprehended for trying to use a counterfeit $20 bill. US President Donald Trump, who has received criticism for his response to the protests, also called for a law enforcement reform.
