Biden Is Not A Racist

Joe Biden of Delaware is many things, plagiarist, liar, politician (oh wait I already said liar) but he is not a racist. He is in a bit of hot water for some remarks he made about Indians (not the native kind):

“I’ve had a great relationship. In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian-Americans moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”

I do not care for Joe Biden. I think he showed his ass when he was questioning Roberts and Alito and he proved that he does not belong in the Senate much less the White House. He is nothing more than a partisan hack. Having said that I think his remarks were more stupid than anything. I think he was trying to connect with the Indian folks and he said something before thinking. This is similar to the joke Hillary Clinton made about Gandhi running a gas station. If I had to pick the racist from these two it would be Hillary. Her willingness to invoke the race card and the way blacks were allegedly treated in the Clinton White House make her the more reasonable choice.

I don’t think that either statement was racist but I think the reaction by the MSM shows that Democrats get more leeway when it comes to these kinds of statements. Trent Lott was vilified for remarks he made and they were innocent. He got trouble for what people thought he meant. But the left has blown so much smoke about being the friend of minorities that they get a pass when they are not PC.

The reaction of some and the statement that was supposed to clear it up came under scrutiny and this is solely because of the PC attitude that the left has given us. You make a statement that someone does not like you are a racist. You are a black Congressman woman and hit a white police officer and he is a racist. It is all because of PC. Biden has never given indication that he is a racist and the statement he released tried to clear it up but it was a bunch of mumbo jumbo. He would have done himself better to apologize and say that the words did not come out the way he wanted or that he meant something else.

In any event, there are many things that Joe Biden is but racist is not one of them. I just wish that the MSM and liberals would give people like Bill Bennett the same benefit of the doubt. Fat chance.
