Sen. Cotton vs. Biden DOJ Nominee Vanita Gupta: "Against Which Races Do You Harbor Racial Bias?"

|

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AK) took on President Joe Biden's nominee for associate attorney general Vanita Gupta at a confirmation hearing last week for a past comment alleging that all Americans "have implicit biases and racial biases."

"You said we all have implicit biases and racial biases. That's all. Every single American you accused of implicit bias and racial bias. So, I'm asking you again against which races do you harbor racial bias?" Cotton asked.


"I am quite aware that I know that I hold stereotypes that I have to manage," Gupta responded. "I'm a product of my culture. I believe that all of us are able to manage implicit bias, but only if we can acknowledge our own and I am not above anyone else in that matter. I think implicit bias is something that is part of the shared human condition."
