Joe Biden called famed rapper LL Cool J a “boy.” Live. On TV.
Video of the incident shows that he recovered quickly, but…. come on.
Now, imagine if a Republican did that, even by mistake.
Here is how it went down. It occurred Sat. night as Biden was pandering to the Congressional Black Caucus.
“Two of the great artists of our time representing the groundbreaking legacy of hip hop in America, LL Jay Cool J, uhhh…” he said as the crowd laughed.
“By the way that boy — that man’s got biceps bigger than my thighs,” Biden interjected.
He blew right past the gaffe, as well he should have, granted. Stopping to address such a gaffe would just make it all worse.
And calling a black man “boy” is just one rung below using the n-word to label him.
Take a look:

If this flub was committed by a Republican, the media would be tarring and feathering the dude right now. And the attacks would be piled onto that person’s head for the rest of their lives. But after 42 hours, it is crickets.
The media completely ignored it.
In an age when ANY “example of racism” is excoriated as “systemic American racism,” the fact that the left is ignoring this is all you need in order to see how sold out they really are.
The fact is, the left does not care about racism. They only care about using “racism” to attack the right.
