President Biden has continued to use attacks on black Americans as a cudgel to sow racial division, civil rights attorney Leo Terrell told Fox News.
In an interview that aired on ‘Life, Liberty & Levin’ on Sunday, Terrell discussed the mass shooting at a Buffalo supermarket, allegedly carried out by an 18-year-old Broome County man who wrote a 180-page racist screed and intentionally targeted Black people.
Terrell agreed with Biden that the shooting was a hate crime, but added that Biden again used the tragic crime as a way to turn white Americans and black Americans against each other again.

“As a civil rights lawyer for 30 years, this was a hate crime,” he said. “This attacker hated black people.”
“What bothers me is…the left is playing this offensive narrative of the moment they see a black victim and a white assailant [and says]’Oh, we’re back in 1860′ – yet when it comes to black-on-black crime, the crickets.”
“When you had a situation in Wisconsin [with] a black supremacist – let me give the Democrats the name – Darrell Brooks – he mowed down white people. He killed white people,” Terrell recounted, suggesting the left and the media were reluctant to name the suspect or shine a light on the mass murder.

Terrell said Biden is “using black people,” underscoring the dichotomy between Biden rushing to Buffalo and less fervent after the Waukesha attack.
Terrell reflected on being a former Democrat, telling Levin his breaking point was when Biden told a New York radio show that if black voters didn’t support his presidential bid, they wouldn’t. weren’t black enough.
