(SNews) – The mysterious White House handlers have been forced to run damage control once again after Democrat President Joe Biden declared during a speech that “African American and Hispanic workers” don’t have “high school diplomas.”
Biden faced backlash online after a video of him making the “racist” statement went viral.
The president made the remarks while discussing “Bidenomics” during a speech at Prince George’s Community College in Largo, Maryland.
“We’ve created 13.4 million new jobs,” Biden claimed.
“We not only recovered all the jobs we lost during the pandemic, we’ve added millions more.”
“We’ve seen record lows in unemployment, particularly — and I’ve focused on this my whole career — particularly for African Americans and Hispanic workers and veterans, you know, the workers without high-school diplomas,” he continued.
“The lowest unemployment rate in 70 years for women now.”

The comments were met with a widespread backlash online.
“I keep saying I am almost 51 years old and Joe Biden is the most explicitly racist president in my lifetime,” said attorney Aaron Walker. “Good lord.”
National GOP spokeswoman Madison Gesiotto Gilbert, now a former congressional candidate, responded: “Nooo, he didn’t…”
Rep. Burgess Owens (R-UT), who is black, responded, “Another day, another racist comment from Biden.
“Crickets from the mainstream media.”
The sentiment from Ownes was echoed by many on social media.
Several Twitter/X users noted that the corporate media circus would run wild if President Donald Trump made the same remark.
Biden’s handlers scrambled to correct the president’s comment, however.
The White House quietly edited a transcript of Biden’s remarks to clean up the “racist” comments.
To make his remarks appear less racist, the handlers stealthily added the word “and” after “African American, Hispanic, and veteran workers.”
For those who don’t believe their lying ears, according to the White House transcript, Biden said:
“We’ve seen record lows in unemployment particularly — and I’ve focused on this my whole career — particularly for African Americans and Hispanic workers and veterans, you know, and the workers without high school diplomas.”
Biden later suggested that he uses race and sex to discriminate against some candidates while making his cabinet hires and judicial nominations.
“You know, and, by the way, when I got elected, I promised that I wanted an administration that would look like America.
“I got more women in the Cabinet than any president has ever in history.
“And I got more women — more women than men in the Cabinet,” he said.
“And I put more black women on the appellate court and the Supreme Court than every other president combined in American history.”
