The Biden Crime Bill of 1994. Liberal icons Feinstein, Kerry, Biden and Wellstone are clearly visible with President Clinton. The bill is known for its sentencing disparities which led to mass incarceration of Blacks.[1]

Cumulatively since the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 (commonly known as the Biden Crime Bill) passed, 2.5 million adult black males—more than 10% of the population—were incarcerated leaving untold damage on black families.[2] 250,000 more African-Americans were imprisoned in the United States than under conservative President Reagan,[3] a fact for which both Joseph Biden and Hillary Clinton take credit.[4] The Rev. Jesse Jackson said the crime bill portended “the most fascist period of our history.”[5]

At the same time, Biden and Clinton raised mandatory sentencing guidelines, which, according to Wikipedia's statistical methods which distort figures from Chinese Communist Party gulags and other totalitarian leftist regimes, disproportionately sent African-Americans to prison, "giving the U.S. the highest mass incarceration rate in the world."[6]

Biden and the Clintons championed the "three strikes, you're out" law, mandated life sentences for some three-time offenders and authorized more than $16 billion for more state prisons. Human Rights Watch reported that in seven states, African-Americans constituted 80 to 90 percent of all drug offenders even though they were no more likely than whites to use or sell illegal drugs. Prison admissions for drug offenses reached a level in 2000 for African Americans more than 26 times the level they had been under Ronald Reagan.

Title VI, the Federal Death Penalty Act, created 60 new death-penalty offenses under 41 federal capital statutes,[7]

After repealing it by signing the First Step Act, Donald Trump tweeted to Biden and his allies why the bill was bad and anyone who is associated with it will not win the 2020 presidential election.[8][9]
