The Republicans filibustered the most recent voting rights act. Today's republican party is the Dixiecrats of the 60's. In both houses, more Democrats voted for civil rights than republicans. Then in 1964 Republicans nominated a man who voted against the Civil Rights Act. So you're being disingenuous.Really??? Because history shows that the longest filibuster in US Senate history was done by Democrats. The bill that they were keeping from being voted on: The Civil Rights Act of 1964. By percentage of members, I believe more Republicans voted in favor of the measure than Democrats. That would be a weird flex in opposing civil rights.
As far as Biden supporting Civil Rights, he probably has, but he also have instances where his record is less than stellar.
