"We have the chance to rip the roots of systemic racism out of this country," Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden says in a video released on the Fourth of July.



In the video Biden says "American history is no fairy tale" as the country has never lived up to the words of the Declaration of Independence that  "all men are created equal." "Jefferson himself didn't. He held slaves," Biden says. Adding that there have been "more than 200 years of systemic racism."

Biden's video comes a day after President Trump delivered a speech at Mount Rushmore where he criticized the "cancel culture" of activists and those who are trying to wipe out American history.
