Biden has made a huge number of rather colorful statements on race and I was wondering if Biden would be attacked as a racist and white supremacist if he was a Republican. For example, the students interviewed seem to think a lot of Biden's statements are proof of racism when they think Trump said them
For example, opposing busing in the 1970s saying it “codifies the concept that a black is inferior to a white."
2006: You Can’t Go To a 711 or Dunkin’ Donuts In Delaware ‘Without A Slight Indian Accent’
2007: Saying that Iowa school were better than those in Washington due to the lack of blacks and minorities
Calling Obama "the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”
2012: Told a black audience if Republican win“they gonna put y’all back in chains.”
2019: Said "Poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids"
There are probably a whole bunch more. So why don't people recoil at the idea of voting or even supporting Biden since he's a racist the same way they do with Trump. I know a lot in the press also called Reagan, Bush 41 Bush 43, and Romney racist. Yet Biden is not dismissed as racist? What is the standard for labeling someone as racist? Is it just the letter next to their name?
