1. Joe Biden addresses voter suppression
Joe Biden got a better reception than Mitt Romney when he addressed the 103rd NAACP Annual Convention.
The Vice President, who brought along televised salutations from President Barack Obama, addressed the issues of racial profiling and voter suppression as it relates to Black America.
"Vice President Biden offered an inclusive vision for moving our nation forward, not backward,” stated NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous. “His life-long commitment to civil rights shone through as he directly addressed pressing issues facing communities of color. We were glad to hear his robust defense of voting rights in the wake of attacks on the franchise, and his timely critique of racial profiling should send a message to anyone looking to replicate New York City’s failed policy of stop-and-frisk policing.”
