Democrat Al Sharpton has responded to Sen. Tim Scott’s declaration, that the United States is “not a racist country," by claiming “the practice of America was built on racism."

Sharpton stated in his speech during the funeral of Andrew Brown Jr., a black man who was shot by law enforcement in North Carolina:

“I watched, the other night, the president make his first address to the joint session of Congress."

“And then I watched the rebuttal by the senator from South Carolina."

"Seems something awkward to me, where a white president talked about white supremacy, and a black senator said…

"America is not racist. Seemed a little strange to me.”

“Now, everybody in America is not racist,” he added.

"But are you talking about whether the practice of America’s racist or the people, cause the practice of America was built on racism."

Police say Brown was shot as he drove away while Pasquotank County Sheriff’s deputies were trying to serve an arrest warrant for drug charges.

Sharpton joins a slew of left-wing figures who have attacked Scott.

“When America comes together, we’ve made tremendous progress, but powerful forces want to pull us apart,” Scott said in his remarks.

“A hundred years ago, kids in classrooms were taught the color of their skin was their most important characteristic, and if they looked a certain way, they were inferior,” he continued.

“You know this stuff is wrong. Hear me clearly: America is not a racist country,” Scott declared.

“It’s backwards to fight discrimination with different types of discrimination.”

Scott was compared to the racist "Uncle Tom" trope that depicts black people as subservient after he defended America as not racist.

While making the point that he had personally experienced discrimination, Scott spoke extensively about race and concluded that he does not believe the United States was an inherently racist country.
