President Joe Biden released a message for the graduating class of 2021 that highlighted several so-called “crises” that the graduates will face.
In the video released on Twitter, Biden said the class of 2021 is graduating at an “inflection point” in history and described one of the great crises of our time being “systemic racism.”
Biden explained that his generation faced an “inflection point” and three years after he graduated and he surprisingly, based on his apparent determination to prove “systemic racism” exists, described Dr. Martin Luther King as of of his “political heroes.” He added that his generation was “in the midst of a great movement 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.”
He seemed to have overlooked some of the actual crises that the country is facing such as the unprecedented surge at the southern border of illegal immigrants which may have been caused by Biden’s own policies.
“And because of you, your generation, I’ve never been more optimistic about the future than I am today,” he added and described the graduates as “one of the most gifted and talented and well-educated generation in American history.”
“And you’re going to see more change in the next 10 years than we saw in the last 50 years,” he said, which seemed to some as more of a threat than encouragement as the past year and half of pandemic restrictions, Black Lives Matter riots and Critical Race Theory infiltration have snowballed the country towards what appears to be totalitarianism and communism.
“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,” he said.
He ended by saying, “May God bless you and your families.” To his credit, he used a traditional close to his speech that referenced God.
However, it may be surprising because despite being a so-called devote Catholic, his message this past Easter was absent of any reference to Jesus Christ, the very person the holiday is supposed to represent.
Congratulations to the Class of 2021. You’re graduating at an inflection point in our nation’s history – and you have a genuine opportunity to change the trajectory of our country. Seize this moment. I can’t wait to see what you accomplish. pic.twitter.com/pl3Or74lxg

Biden has emphasized systemic racism as an issue in the past, although he has also tried to say American’s themselves are not racist.
“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.
Reactions to the video seemed to be full of socialists who demanded he give them other people’s money. Some asking for reparations, and many demanding to know when Biden was going to live up to his campaign promise of using other people’s hard earned money to pay of their student loan debt.
So not even a discussion of reparations?

When is the student loan forgiveness coming? We have paid for 10 years on loans that have barely moved. That’s one campaign promise I would love to come to fruition!

Now cancel student debt so they can go into the world without the crushing burden of debt.

One user even suggested that the debt was not the student’s but the responsibility of the country itself.
It’s hard to hear you over the sound of the nation’s crippling student loan debt.
