Tim Scott, the only black Republican senator currently serving, said that America is “not a racist country” last night in a Republican rebuttal to President Joe Biden’s first address to Congress.

Watch the video clip below:

He then went on to contradict himself by talking about the racism he has experienced in America.

I know what it feels like to be pulled over for no reason and to be followed around a store while I’m shopping.

Apparently, Tim Scott doesn’t consider those acts of racism.

“Uncle Tim” was trending on Twitter in response to Senator Scott’s speech, and Republicans implied that Twitter and the people posting to the hashtag were the real racists because of the play on words between “Uncle Tom” and “Uncle Tim.”

That is a super reach!
