The Democrats seem to want to run against Joe Biden on the issue that Joe was, horrors, against forced racial school busing of children. After all, who doesn’t love busing? Look what a happy and pleasant little girl busing made of Senator Kamala Harris:

Forced racial school busing (which in the U.S. is spelled with one S, not two) has been pretty much memoryholed. For example, the 1978 implementation of busing in Los Angeles — shipping white kids an hour from the San Fernando Valley to South-Central — caused the near instant White Flight of almost all the Jewish students from L.A. public schools. But who can remember events that happened in such an obscure location to such a marginalized ethnicity with so little access to the media?
But nobody ever brings that up, so maybe most Democrats younger than Joe Biden think busing sounds like a great issue to run for President on.
