President Joe Biden ginned up racial tensions at the graduation ceremony for Howard University on Saturday, claiming that America’s greatest threat comes in the form of “white supremacy.”
Biden gave the commencement address for the historically black college and university (HBCU) at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C. In the speech, the president took a pessimistic view of America’s fight against racism, claiming that it is “a battle that’s never really over.”
Then, Biden told graduates to be on guard for what he views as the greatest threat to our nation.
“The most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland is white supremacy,” Biden told the crowd who responded with applause. “And I’m not saying this because I’m at a Black HBCU. I say it wherever I go.”
