Transcript for Joe Biden pressed on why Black voters should choose him
From Cedric Humphries a student from Harrisburg Pennsylvania progressive Democrat. Don't jump sooner if you look at your way up there really I think George and good evening former Vice President Biden. Many people believe that they true swing demographic and the selection will be black voters under the age of thirty. Not because they'll be voting for trump but because they won't vote at all. I myself have this exact same conflict. So my question for you than is. Besides you went black. What you have to say to young black voters who see voting for you ask for their participation in a system that continually fails to protect them well. I say first of all as my buddy Joseph Louis and it's a sacred opportunity right to vote can make a difference. If young black women and men vote you can determine the outcome of the selection not a joke. You can do that. The next question is there in my worthy of your vote can I earn your vote. And the answer is there's two things I think that I care I'm damn mr. that I care about my whole career. Warren is in addition to dealing with either criminal justice system and make it fair. And make you more decent. We have to be able put black Americans have just been able and gain wealth generate wealth. And so you look at what they've had entails and tells everything from early education that's why I'm supporting making sure that. When you've title one schools as you know schools with the least tax base to Pamela. Support for schools I increase to fund from them from fifteen and two two 45 billion dollars. That allows every teacher in that school to make up to 60000 marks and a problem dollars and leaving the schools are not there were short about a million. And I have teachers from moon quarter teachers. Number two every three in four and five year old go to school school did not. Daycare school. When all the great universities including when you've gone to go to or went to in fact talks about the last eight years. What's happened what happens when you let them go to school they make up rapidly and whatever and do whatever. Hong failed war where whatever. Shortcoming I hadn't turned her education prior to that. They might have not heard of many words spoken sooner etc. what happens is it. The study showed that 58% well increased by 50% to chants going all through. Twelve years of school and going through successfully. Also provide for the ability to bring in social workers and and school psychologists we have one school psychologists and American now for every. 15107. Kids should be one to 500 not just in and and and schools that are poor urban and all schools. Because we learned that for example drug abuse doesn't cause. Mental illness moose causes drug abuse and failure to get hold of people and and deal with their anxieties. Condition of that I Pryor provide for seventy billion dollars for HBC news for them to be able I have the wherewithal to do in other universities can do. Because they have they don't have. The kind of foundational support they need. And so that would allow them for example like we did our administration the president allow me an endowment. We worded name and unit and cyber security laboratory ability to compete for cyber security laboratory the federal government spends billions of dollars a year. I'm universities because there are the best kept secret or where most from the major conventions come out. And so that school now will be able to produce young black women amend her runner going to a field of the future of its burgeoning cyber security. And that's what that's who's gonna help a great deal an additional. That if you're young man about to graduate and you graduated from school and you want to. All your first home and her well it's awful hard to get the money and depending on the background. Won't Wear or torture Brad your action here choose me your economic background has. To get it down payments are gonna guarantee first term homebuyers a 151000 dollar down payment. For first term homebuyers. In addition of that what do all the studies now show and I'm and arguments for a long time. He's young black entrepreneurs in just a successful white entrepreneurs or anyone else commission but you can't get the money where you go to get to start a money. Some were President Obama might do it we had a program we took a 1000000500. Million dollars. And we invested and all the SBA's around the country in the status BA small -- association's. And that generated thirty billion dollars came off the sideline because if you have a guarantee of 200000 dollars for year new start up enterprises don't want to manure. You're going to be able attractive as government money is guaranteed to be able attract another 100000 dollars it it generated thirty billion dollars. Want to change you have program Ron get this done. Without much trouble I believe in the congress from. From fifteen. 11 point five million dollars to thirty dollar billion dollars to thirty billion. I'll take 300 billion dollars off the sideline and grow because you know. And for example if you in fact and I were in the same age and we split our differences occurred the same page. And we went to the same builder via since the same home. But my home was an all white neighborhood on one side of highway in years and a black neighborhood same exact count. Your home will start off being valued at 29%. Less than my home. Get your insurance for that will be higher. You'll be taxed more for you've got to end this that's it got me involved in politics the first place in called redlining. We can change so much that we can do so much to change the circumstances. To give people a real opportunity xetra it. But do you have any comfort as head here what's needed here. I think cell. Until there's a lot more if you wanna meet you Daryn afterwards until anymore Coca pleasantly nobody really made it is a kid is the key look. This is the way every other. How how to most liked my dad he lost and drop off in Scranton. And it took him three years to believe you move down to Delaware Claremont total steel town. Being sent to solve our grand pop to live with him. Finally got back we lived in apartments became section eight housing much Slater wasn't his normal apartments. And but it took him five years to be able to buy a home. What we bought a three bedroom home with four kids and a greater problem when asked what it accumulated wealth. You built up well that's how middle class folks making a build up wealth and he was able bar a little against that to be able help to skip the school those kinds of things. It's about accumulating. Wealth. And he's very you're behind an eight ball the vast majority people of color behind an eight ball. And it's the same way what's going on now of all this money that's been voted. What's happened to go to the bank if you're black businessman. And I am the president fired the only inspector general to. See over oversee all this help come from the congress and what happens you aware of and they say Seattle got to count here you know. He have a democratic are there's no have you Barghouti Ford know. We build these suckers out. I'm not liable for any money. But they still won't run and they still won't lend a -- we got to change that it's about accumulating wealth.
