The Democratic candidate for vice president said recently that Trump lives in a "different reality" because he constantly denies the existence of systemic racism in America.
"The reality of America today is what we have seen over generations and, frankly, since our inception, which is we do have two systems of justice in America," said Kamala Harris.
"I think that Donald Trump and Bill Barr are spending full time in a different reality," said Harris, the first woman of colour on a major US White House ticket, referring to the President and his attorney general.
Harris' statement came two days after Trump ordered federal agencies to stop funding anti-racism training for employees. As Trump argues, it is "divisive, un-American propaganda" that suggests the country is "inherently racist." With this statement, Trump seems to want to say that racism does not exist in America, and we all know that it is a big lie, and that non-American propaganda is spreading through such training and pointing out the existence of the problem of racism. Indeed, as Kamala says, such statements can only come from a "different reality".
Also interesting is the statement from “parallel reality” given by Barr. He dismissed the idea that there is, effectively, one justice system for whites in the United States and another for blacks.
"I think we have to be a little careful about throwing the idea of racism around," Barr said. "I don't think it is as common as people suggest."
On the other hand Harris insisted that peaceful protest is an American right and that racism is indeed embedded in the country.
