Kamala Harris Defends Attacking Biden on Bussing: It’s Important That We Never Forget the ‘Dark Days of Our History’

‘I was that little girl’

EXCERPT:

HARRIS: “So on the issue of and in the conversation with Vice President Biden, it was through the lens of that, which is that these segregationists pushed policies and really made — built their careers and reputations off of policies that were about segregation of the races in our country. And it had real consequence. The policy perspective that was opposed to bussing had real consequence. I was that little girl. And there are many others around the country who were those little girls and boys who were bussed. And so I felt the need to speak truth about that. I think it’s important that we as Americans never forget our history, including those dark days of our history. And so that’s why I felt the need to talk about it.”
