'Imagine if a Republican Said This': Biden Criticized for What He Just Called Maryland's Black Governor

President Biden was criticized Wednesday for referring to Democrat Gov. Wes Moore, Maryland’s first black governor, as “boy,” which is considered to be a ‘dehumanizing’ term for black men, according to Sen. Cory Booker.

“You got a hell of a new governor in Wes Moore, I tell ya,” Biden told a crowd of union workers during a speech in Lanham, Maryland. 

“He’s the real deal, and the boy looked like he could still play. He got some guns on him,” Biden said of Moore, who played football for John Hopkins University. 

This is not the first time Biden has used the offensive term, and in 2019, Booker called him out for it. 

“I know the deeply harmful and hurtful usage of the word ‘boy’ and how it was used to dehumanize and degrade [black men]," Booker said. 

Biden “should know that using the word boy in the way he did can cause hurt and pain,” Booker added. “We need [Biden] to be sensitive to that.”

According to the New York Post, however, Biden has also referred to white lawmakers as "boy."

During a speech on student loan forgiveness in October, Biden used the word to refer to Democrat Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware.

“And Chris Coons, who has the seat I used to hold. Only difference is that he not only has a law degree, he has a divinity degree. The boy can preach,” Biden said.
