Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Done if we don't give people the right to vote vice president one one I just wanted to give you a chance to respond I agree completely you should be registration automatically registration turning eighteen to get a driver's license very do you automatically are registered number one number two with regard to what we're gonna see South Carolina we're all going to be there pretty soon we'll see whether or not it works the response to the letter that the person I'm not saying Bernie wrote the letter but the senator wrote the letter was very brisk dance and significant with other African Americans in South Carolina taking issue with her but look Amy is right the senator is correct that is that we in fact there is systematic racism and that's why our justice department works so hard to go after those you know realize there are thirty five states United States America that have come up with a total of seventy eight laws to restrict voting just in the last five years to try to keep African Americans from voting and and and and brown as well black and brown people from voting and that will be it and then Norma's priority in our men and my administration as it was in ours it's just wrong simply wrong senator Warren you know I'm glad to stand on this stage my fellow Democrats who talk about how important the black community is at least election time here after year after year and lay lecture after election after election Democrats go to people in the black community and say boy we really care about these issues racism is terrible we all want to do something and then somehow the problem just seems to keep getting worse well I think it's time we have real concrete plans that are going to make a difference in people's lives I propose to to set wealth tax and let me tell you just one of the things we can do with the two cent wealth tax we can cancel still long for forty three million Americans and African Americans have to borrow more money to go to college or more money while they're in college you have a harder time paying it back when they get out that one wall is going to help black white wealth gap for people with student loans by about twenty points we are making a difference in America we're saying to the rich folks you'll keep your money and the rest of us will talk about racism but not really do anything I think the time for that is over I'm ready to get in this fight and really make okay the system look out of narrative comes policy and we're talking about a lot of policies that affect Americans broadly and disproportionately affect black Americans or brown Americans but what I believe is we should set up a commission on race and deal with race explicitly however in saying we can't have rules that are different for different people but in fact we're here because we had the rules are different for different people I would set up a formal commission on race on day one to retell the story of the last four hundred years in America of systematic racism against African Americans not just legal discrimination injustice and cruelty but also the contribution to the African American community has made to America in building it and in leading the entire country from a moral standpoint for generations and centuries because I believe out of narrative comes policy we need to repair damage that's been done officially and pretending we're all the same is not accurate we got here a certain way let's talk about Jim crow let's talk about Martin Luther king let's talk about Barbara Lee the congresswoman from Oakland is one of our great leaders and then let's figure out how to repair the damage so we can move forward together Mr.
