University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban was one of several prominent sports figures to sign an open letter calling on Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) to support sweeping voting rights legislation.

As he breaks down Saban’s comments on the so-called "voters’ rights" controversy, BlazeTV host Jason Whitlock exposes the Democratic Party's long-standing hypocrisy when it comes to race issues. Why is the party that has the most horrible record of racism to be trusted by black communities now? How can President Joe Biden, who has been in politics most of his long life and never made a significant contribution to the black community, be a relevant voice on this issue?

"When black people were being denied the opportunity to vote systemically, the Democratic Party was nowhere to be found. It's almost like, to make a golf analogy, they want a 'mulligan' on racism. They blew it, the Democrats blew it during the Civil War. And they blew it during the civil rights movement, and now they want a mulligan," Jason said, referring to Democrats' opposition to President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation and Dr. Martin Luther King’s civil rights movement to end Jim Crow laws.

Jason went on to say that, as a 54-year-old black man, he has lived in many different parts of America and has never known anyone who felt that they couldn't vote because of "white supremacy" or being denied the opportunity to vote. He pointed out, however, that voting rights for black people "were in real jeopardy" in the 20th century.

"When black people were being denied the opportunity to vote, systemically, the Democratic Party was nowhere to be found. When we were enslaved, the Democratic Party was nowhere to be found. When the KKK was lynching black people to intimidate them in the ways that they voted or to keep them in line, the Democratic Party was nowhere to be found," Jason stated.

"But now that we're five years removed from having a two-term black president, our current president is holding speeches and rallies telling Americans that the greatest threat to America is white supremacy. Joe Biden has been in political office, I believe, for 48 years … he's had the opportunity to give speeches and say, 'This white supremacy, we've got to do something about it.' He didn't do that. At that time [of] the desegregation of schools, he didn't want his kids going to a 'racial jungle.' He ran around and celebrated Robert Byrd, a member of the KKK," he continued.

"And we're supposed to believe ... that now Joe Biden has found his voice?" Jason added. "This man was alive when the KKK was burning crosses and killing black folks at random and he said nothing."
