OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.


President Joe Biden created a firestorm of criticism for a racially charged and unsubstantiated claim against whites in a commencement speech at a historically black college on Saturday.

Biden stoked more racial division during his speech at Howard University when he said the biggest threat to American democracy was “white supremacy.”

Biden delivered the commencement address at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. During his speech, where he expressed a pessimistic view on America’s ongoing struggle against racism, in which he claimed it is “a battle that’s never really over.”

Afterward, Biden told the graduates to be on constant guard for what he says is the most dangerous “terrorist threat” to the country.

“The most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland is white supremacy,” Biden told the crowd, which responded with applause. “And I’m not saying this because I’m at a Black HBCU. I say it wherever I go.”

In addition, Biden took a not-so-veiled potshot at his most like 2024 opponent, former President Donald Trump, who signed bipartisan legislation providing more than $250 million a year to the nation’s historically black colleges and universities, along with dozens of other institutions that serve large shares of minority students” in 2019, the AP reported.

“Let’s be clear: There are those who don’t see you and don’t want this future,” Biden said. “There are those who demonize and pit people against one another. And there are those who do anything and everything, no matter how desperate or immoral, to hold onto power. And that’s never going to be an easy battle.”

Apparently, Biden did not see the irony of his own words, in which he singled out the largest ethnic group in the country, literally pitting all Americans of color against whites.

Earlier, as he began his speech, Biden decried the nation’s historic racial divisions before making it seem as if there has been little-to-no progress at all on the issue.

“We know American history has not always been a fairy tale. From the start, it’s been a constant push and pull for more than 240 years, between the best of us – the American ideal that we’re all created equal – and the worst of us, a harsh reality that racism has long torn us apart,” he said.

“It’s a battle that’s never really over,” he said. “But on the best days, enough of us have the guts and hearts to stand up for the best in us, to choose love over hate, unity over disunity, progress over retreat…”

Conservatives reacted with fury — and some history lessons of their own — in response to Biden’s horrific tone.

“The Democratic Party spent most of the 19th Century and much of the 20th using overt racism to win elections. They are doing again in the 21st century. The racism just looks a lot different than the 19th century version,” Foundation for Economic Education managing editor Jon Miltimore wrote in a post that included a period political poster depicting a white Democratic candidate against an opponent who favored rights for blacks.

Conservative influencer Elijah Schaffer added, “Biden just told a bunch of black people that white supremacy is the greatest threat to America.”

RNC Research’s Jake Schneider shared the clip and wrote, “Divider-in-chief Joe Biden, at Howard University, says ‘the most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland is white supremacy.'”

OutKick.com’s Clay Travis found the statement completely ridiculous. He tweeted, “I mean, this is completely bonkers. Did anyone talk like this in the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s or even 2010s? Of course not. Yet suddenly white supremacy is the BIGGEST THREAT in America? I don’t even think…”
