President Joe Biden has been slammed for his racist comment. At a White House reception honoring African Americans throughout the country’s history, he said, “I may be a white boy, but I’m not stupid.” This statement has caused an uproar among Americans who view this as an example of the president’s long history of racism.
Throughout his political career, President Biden has been accused of making numerous racially insensitive remarks and decisions. Now with his latest statement, many Americans are calling out what they deem as blatant racism from the current president.
The RNC released a 7-minute video last August detailing all of the president’s racism. Conservative author Nick Adams tweeted that President Biden is “the most racist president to occupy the White House since Lyndon Johnson.” Right-wing media personality Collin Rugg tweeted “he is white but he is also stupid,” while political columnist Benny Johnson wrote: “Biden makes entire White House crowd CRINGE in horror after calling himself ‘white boy’ at Black History Month event.”

The reaction from those on both sides of the aisle shows just how serious this issue is taken by some people. Leaders like President Biden need to be mindful of their words and actions so as not to alienate any particular group or demographic unnecessarily.
