Well, he’s done it again. President Biden once again proved that he is not fit to stay in the White House. This time he raised more eyebrows after making an awkward racial comment at the White House during a Black History event.
The president was supposed to highlight the influence of the Divine Nine, a group of historically black fraternities and sororities.
Biden said, “I may be a white boy, but I’m not stupid. I know where the power is … you think I’m joking. I learned a long time ago about the Divine Nine.”
This cringing comment came just as he was introducing civil rights and business leaders. It started with a pretty long rant of an introduction of Ted Blunt. Biden talked about what a good basketball player he was, and that he would have played pro ball “except his feet got flatter when he got older.”
There was nervous laughter from the crowd and no doubt Biden’s staff was nervous because the president was going off the rails.
Then Biden turned to the presidents of those fraternities and sororities, the Divine Nine, and that’s when the “I may be a white boy, but I’m not stupid” comment came.
This is just the latest cringe moment from the president that was questionable racially. He told African Americans that they “ain’t black” if they didn’t cast their vote for him in the 2020 elections.
He once said that Barack Obama was the “first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”
He has repeatedly referred to Black people as “boy.”
And in 2019, Biden made this statement, “We should challenge these students, we should challenge students in these schools and have advance placement programs in these schools,” Biden said. “We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”
It’s always weird when I see people enjoying being pandered to but maybe that’s the Holden Caulfield in me
