This just in: President Joe Biden assumes most white guys are natural-born idiots.

At least, that’s what the Unifier-In-Chief suggested during a pandering speech Monday night at a Black History Month event at the White House, where he backhandedly slammed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for banning anti-white Critical Race Theory materials in the state’s public K-12 curriculum.

"It’s important to say from the White House for the entire country to hear: History matters. History matters and Black history matters," he said. "I can’t just choose to learn what we want to know. We learn what we should know. We have to learn everything, the good, the bad, the truth, and who we are as a nation.”

To prove he's read up on his history, Biden then bragged about his knowledge of the nation’s nine historic black fraternities and sororities, dubbed the “Divine Nine.”

"I may be a White boy, but I'm not stupid," Biden told the laughing crowd. ”I know where the power is. You think I’m joking? I learned a long time ago about the Divine Nine.”

Biden’s got a solid history of making divisive, offensive, and sometimes just downright bizarre racial statements. He once told black voters that if they didn’t support him over President Trump, “you ain’t black,” and in 2012 told a black audience in Virginia that Republicans “want to put y’all back in chains” by not supporting left-leaning banking regulations. He’s also touted his own street cred among minority communities with some pretty outlandish anecdotes, claiming that he grew up in a Puerto Rican community in Delaware and saying he used to attend a black church.

While it’s certainly not true that all - or even most - white boys are stupid, I think we’ve zeroed in on one who is.
