At the historically Black university in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, Biden stated, “The harsh reality of racism has long torn us apart.” “It’s a fight. Although it’s never truly gone, on the best days enough of us have the strength of character to stand up for what makes us happy and to favour love over hatred.
“Union triumphs over disunion. Advancement triumphs against retreat. To identify White supremacy as the most serious terrorist threat to our homeland and to speak out against it, as I did in my inaugural address.
I’m not saying this because I’m at a Black HBCU, Biden said after the audience applauded. I repeat it everywhere I go.
The speech drew immediate criticism on social media, mainly from conservatives who questioned the administration of Vice President Biden’s priorities.
Clay Travis, the creator of OutKick, tweeted, “I mean, this is completely bonkers.” Was this the way people spoke in the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, or perhaps the 2010s? Obviously not. However, why did this suddenly become the biggest threat in America? It’s not even in my top 50 list of the greatest threats.
Biden received an honorary degree from the university on Saturday, which the institution described as “much deserved for his years of transformational service as U.S. Senator, Vice President, and now as President of the United States.”
