Biden: “A Black Man Invented The Light Bulb, Not A White Guy Named Tom Edison…We’ve Got To Give People Facts”

By

Joe Biden on Thursday said that a black man created the light bulb, ‘not a white guy named Edison’ during a speech while in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  

Biden made the remark at the Grace Lutheran Church while speaking with community leaders after a private meeting with the family of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old father who was shot seven times in front of his children this month.

He traveled to the embattled city after President Trump made an appearance earlier this week, despite push back from local leaders and the Blake family refusing to meet with him.

In footage shared to social media, Biden addressed instances of racial inequality in institutions, including the education system.
