BREAKING NEWS: Joe Biden Refers To Black Governor As “Boy” And Instantly Gets Blasted By Netizens For This “Racist” Remark
President Joe Biden is getting severely grilled after he called the new black governor of Maryland “boy”.
Several Americans believe he used a racially charged term.
According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of the word “boy” suggests “a dated, offensive : a male servant or an enslaved man.”
It is an offensive term used to address a black man.
On Wednesday, while delivering a speech to union members from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers in Lanham, Maryland, Biden stated:
“You got a hell of a new governor in Wes Moore, I tell ya.”
“He’s the real deal, and the boy looked like he could still play. He got some guns on him.”
Many Twitter users blasted the president for using the derogatory term.
A Twitter user wrote:
“President Biden on Wednesday referred to Maryland Gov. Wes Moore, who is Black, as ‘boy’ during his opening remarks to an audience of IBEW union workers. Dementia can’t even hide Joe Biden’s racism.”
Another user wrote:
“Of course Joe Biden called Black Maryland Governor Wes Moore, ‘boy.’ He called Barack Obama, ‘the first mainstream [Black man] who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.’ And those are some of his *least* racist comments — let alone his policies.”
Another Twitter user pointed out:
“Can you imagine if a Republican said that ~ ~ Biden refers to Democrat Wes Moore — Maryland’s first Black governor — as ‘boy.’”
Another angry user asked:
“Biden called a black man ‘boy.’ This was not 50 years ago, it was today. He was talking about Maryland Gov Wes Moore. Where is the outrage from the media?”
The former GOP Congressional candidate, Kimberly Klacik, wrote:
“President Biden refers to black men as boys. He also said @BarackObama was ‘clean & articulate’ when he ran for president. How much longer must we listen to blatant racism before @CoriBush or @AyannaPressley or even @AOC calls him out on it?”
