Biden Slammed Over ‘White Boy’ Remark At Black History Month Event
President Joe Biden is once again under fire for racist comments — this time for implying that White men are unintelligent during a reception honoring African Americans throughout U.S. history, where he stated: “I may be a white boy, but I’m not stupid.”
In the White House reception on Monday marking Black History Month, the president said that “Black history matters.” This comment was likely a response to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ (R) recent rejection of a high school Advance Placement course for African American studies over radical leftist dogma being shoved into the curriculum, which came after the Republican governor’s “Stop Woke Act” that aims to ban Critical Race Theory (CRT) in Florida’s public schools. Democrats have attempted to ignore DeSantis’ criticism of the woke elements of the course, instead falsely claiming that he wants to prevent students from learning Black history.
“It’s important to say from the White House for the entire country to hear: history matters. History matters and black history matters,” Biden told the roughly 400 people in attendance. “I can’t just choose to learn what we want to know. We learn what we should know. We have to learn everything, the good, the bad, the truth, and who we are as a nation.”
“That’s what great nations do,” he continued.
While paying tribute to the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) — a collaborative umbrella council made up of nine historically African American fraternities and sororities also known as the “Divine Nine” — Biden went on to bizarrely state: “I may be a White boy, but I’m not stupid.”
“I know where the power is,” the president added. “You think I’m joking? I learned a long time ago about the Divine Nine.”
Critics took to social media to blast Biden for his “racist” remarks.
“Joe Biden is the most racist president to occupy the White House since Lyndon Johnson,” conservative author Nick Adams tweeted.
“Fact check: Misleading. He is white but he is also stupid,” said Collin Rugg, a right-wing media personality.
“Biden makes entire White House crowd CRINGE in horror after calling himself ‘white boy’ at Black History Month event,” political columnist Benny Johnson responded.
“They make these pandering, self-deprecating jokes… because they are actually the racists,” bestselling author John LeFevre replied.
This is far from Biden’s first “racist” comment, as he has a history of making racially-charged statements throughout his time in politics. In August, the Republican National Committee (RNC) published a 7-minute video compilation highlighting Biden’s long history of racism.
