'We’re addressing the great crises of our time with a greater sense of purpose than before,' Biden said

Democrat Joe Biden told the class of 2021 that systemic racism is one of "the great crises of our time," and they're graduating at an "inflection point."

Biden said his generation faced an inflection point with fights for civil rights, women's rights, and environmental rights.

"And now you face another inflection point," he said.

"As we put this pandemic behind us, rebuild our economy, root out systemic racism, and tackle climate change, we’re addressing the great crises of our time with a greater sense of purpose than before."

"And because of you, your generation, I've never been more optimistic about the future than I am today," he added.

'African-Americans have been left in a position where they are so far behind the eight-ball in terms of education, health, in terms of opportunity'

Biden has expressed his belief in systemic racism in the past.

"No, I don’t think the American people are racist, but I think after 400 years, African-Americans have been left in a position where they are so far behind the eight-ball in terms of education, health, in terms of opportunity," Biden said in April.

Last month, Biden spoke at the Coast Guard Academy’s campus in New London and told graduates there that "the world is changing. We’re at a significant inflection point."

"And you’re going to see more change in the next 10 years than we saw in the last 50 years."

"But it’s going to be up to you to translate that unprecedented change into a greater measure of happiness and prosperity not only for you and our nation but for the world around you, and I know you will," Biden said.

Earlier this month, Biden unveiled a taxpayer-funded $100 billion effort to tackle “systemic racism.”

The effort was announced during his visit to Tulsa, Oklahoma, marking the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacre, which was one of the worst racially motivated violence in United States history.

Biden also announced major changes to federal housing policy and a new “inter-agency effort” combatting systemic racism in the housing industry.

“The White House announced a slate of policies meant to promote racial equity ahead of the trip,” USA Today reported.

"That includes a new inter-agency effort meant to combat housing discrimination, as well as new directives that will increase federal contracting with small, minority-owned businesses by $100 billion over the next five years.”

The grants will add to millions of taxpayer dollars allocated via the Biden administration’s COVID-19 response bill.

It will “include a $10 billion initiative targeting community revitalization efforts, projects retrofitting transit systems to redress the dislocation of minority communities, incentives to end exclusionary zoning, and a new tax credit to develop low and affordable housing,” USA Today noted.
