“But we also do have to speak truth about the history of racism in our country and its existence today,” Harris said.
Vice President Harris on Thursday said she agreed with South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott’s (R) claim that America is not a racist country, but noted the U.S. needs to “speak truth” about the history of racism in the country.
“No, I don’t think America is a racist country,” Harris said during an interview with ABC News’ “Good Morning America.”
“But we also do have to speak truth about the history of racism in our country and its existence today. I applaud the president for always having the ability and the courage, frankly, to speak the truth about it,” she said.
Harris noted that domestic terrorism manifested by white supremacists is “one of the greatest threats to our national security.”
“It doesn’t help to heal our country to unify us as a people to ignore the realities of that,” she said.
