WATCH: Biden calls white supremacy ‘a poison’

President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden visited families of the victims, first responders and local officials on Tuesday in Buffalo, New York, following this weekend’s racist massacre at a grocery store that left 10 Black people dead and three other people wounded.

In public remarks, the president called on Americans to speak up against white supremacy ideology that he says has been able to “fester and grow right in front of our eyes” in the U.S.

“We need to say as clearly and forcefully as we can that the ideology of white supremacy has no place in America. None. And look, failure to say that is going to be complicity. Silence is complicity. We can not remain silent.”
