Look, I'm no Biden fan, but clearly these millennial journalists have no clue why Biden made his comments. First, he was saying that he wasn't quite referred to as a child like the word "boy" means to black men, but he was dealing with condescending a-holes. That being said, as hateful as those segregationists were, at least there was dialogue across the isle unlike now where there is just hate. That is what his point was. These journalists are focusing too much on the who rather than the comparisons.

Shannon Domarski Interesting explanation. If Biden has a future he will have to explain himself at least this clearly.
