You more than likely won't hear about it in the major media, but the Trump Campaign has released a video showing that the president has denounced white supremacy 38 times going back as far as the early 2000s.

As reported in, the video was in response to the continuing attacks by Democratic Party nominee Joe Biden and repeated questions from the media on whether the president would denounce racism.

The campaign should have also included a compendium of Biden’s racist comments over the decades.

Joe Biden has said, basically, that Blacks are a monolithic group, have no political minds of their own, and march to the Democratic Party drumbeat.

Have you noticed that the media has not given Biden the same scrutiny on his real history of comments? Comments which some would argue are difficult to interpret any other way, except as being racist.

Here are a few illustrative examples of Biden's comments in this regard, descriptors going back years:

In a 1977 U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on busing, Biden said that non-orderly racial integration policies would cause his children to "grow up in a . . . racial jungle."

Even after his busing position was criticized during the Democratic debates by Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., his vice-presidential running mate, I do not recall the press ever following up with a steady barrage of questions over what he meant by his "jungle" comment.

A jungle is a place where wild animals dwell. Maybe that's why Biden sought to cage so many Black men with his draconian and merciless crime bill he authored in 1994.

It resulted in the mass incarceration of thousands of Black men. He justified the bill saying that it targeted "predators on our streets" who should be cordoned off from the rest of society."

Realizing the damage his bill was doing to his campaign and image among Black voters, he agreed it was a mistake during an ABC Townhall.

In 2006, Biden also slurred Indian Americans saying, "You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking."

A year later, after announcing his presidential candidacy, Biden said of presidential candidate Barack Obama: "I mean, you've got the first sort of mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a story-book, man."

In 2010, he eulogized Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W. Va., at his funeral calling the former recruiter and "exalted cyclops" for the Klu Klux Klan, the brutal organization that bombed, burned and lynched Blacks, a "mentor" and a "friend."

In 2012, Biden’s racial insensitivity was again on display when he told a racially diverse Virginia audience that Republicans and Wall Street were " . . . going to put ya’ll back in chains."

I guess he has no idea of the pain and anguish those words bring to Black Americans whose ancestors suffered the reality of real chains and shackles during slavery.

Blacks seem to be Biden’s favorite ethnic group to slur.

One would think that the Democratic party Nominee would have at least tempered his racial comments during his presidential campaign.

Not so.

When it comes to racially insensitive remarks, he can't help himself.

In May, he hit a "double" in this regard.

When a Black journalist asked him if he had taken a cognitive test, Biden angrily shot back, "Are you a junkie."

He later told "The Breakfast Club" radio host Charlamagne tha God: "…if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black."

If that were not bad enough, in August, in another insult, he declared that the Latino community, unlike the Black community, had incredibly diverse attitudes about different things.

Some would argue that serving as vice president for a Black president, being endorsed by Black Congressman Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., and naming a Black woman as his running mate, insulates Biden from criticism of his history of racist comments.

It's amazing how forgiving and protective Black Democrats and much of the media are when so-called liberal whites actually make comments at best insensitive, at worst racist.

It makes no difference whether such descriptive comments are intentional or not.

If a Republican had made any of Biden's comments, we would have heard a "he, or she, is a racist!" from Black and white Democrats and the same media that habitually shields Joe Biden.

Joe Biden seems to possess an unhealthy fixation on race. 

As it stands now, his record on race and ethnicity falls pitifully short!
