Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden appears to believe that white women are never, ever, ever pulled over by the police for traffic stops. Never!
He expressed this factually incorrect and arguably racist belief while answering a question at the Second Step Presidential Justice Forum on Saturday.
“If I were your daughter, what advice would you give me the next time I am stopped by the police?” a young black audience member asked him during the event.

“If you were my daughter, you’d be a Caucasian girl and you wouldn’t be pulled over,” he said. “That’s what’s wrong. Institutional racism should no longer exist. As president, I’ll put forward change to help put an end to it.”
His pandering remark was so grossly wrong that, though it, of course, earned praise from the fact-free left, it provoked incredulity from those not blinded by ideology.
“@JoeBiden is a sick individual. If anyone is trying to cause a racial divide in this country, it’s him & his deranged Socialist/Communist Party formerly known as Democrats. Can’t these people see he’s pandering for votes. Do they really think white people don’t get pulled over??♀️,” one critic opined on Twitter.
Apparently, they really do.
Not only that, but contemporary Democrats also seem to believe that there’s no such thing as a poor white person, never mind mountains of contradicting evidence.
“When you’re white, you don’t know what it’s like to be living in a ghetto,” fellow 2020 candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders said while campaigning unsuccessfully for the Democrat nomination during the last presidential election three years ago.
“You don’t know what it’s like to be poor. You don’t know what it’s like to be hassled when you walk down the street or you get dragged out of a car.”

BS @JoeBiden! My race is White! I’ve been pulled over and ticketed once! I’m an excellent driver! Moreover, my ex-husband, a 32-year veteran of LASD (Lieutenant), would never have enforced the law based on sex! You’re a fool @JoeBiden, and an ignorant one at that! #SwampRat

@JoeBiden says that white people don’t get pulled over by the #police. How many of you white folks have been pulled over? I have, 3 times; cooperated fully and drove away safely with my ticket. #Biden #Bullshit

I get a ticket every time lol. I was married to a cop and got pulled over, and he knew my ex husband, still made me do a “sobriety test” (completely sober) and shined his flashlight up my dress. Bad cops are equal opportunity jerks. @JoeBiden is a fool

As an ex:cop for 23 plus years, @JoeBiden‘s statement offends me & I can speak for most cops that his comments were stupid, ignorant, WRONG, and pandering! I pulled over 10 times more whites than blacks & Hispanics! Joe is an IDIOT!! @realDonaldTrump https://t.co/nFkaDLU68f

What a disgusting answer from Joe Biden. I was unaware that white girls are allowed to speed, get intoxicated while driving or break other laws on the road without consequences but that’s apparently what @JoeBiden believes. He’s VILE for framing our heroic police as racists. https://t.co/6h2U0DJ2kY

@joebiden I am a white Woman and I have been pulled over by the Police many times in the past for speeding. I was speeding and got a ticket, being a white woman made no difference but I did learn my lesson and haven’t had a ticket in 10 years.

This sort of pandering and disingenuous grievance-mongering has become standard-fare among Democrats, who seem to believe that the key to winning the party’s nomination is to besmirch white people (including white cops).
While such antics may win them the nomination, it’s unclear whether smearing the majority of the country will win them the presidency. Biden appears to be particularly fond of this strategy nevertheless.
Two months ago he asserted that racism is a “white man’s problem” and suggested that only whites can be racist.
“It’s a white man’s problem. White men are responsible for it, not black men,” he said.
One month later, he falsely declared that white people “can never fully understand” racism.
“White people can “never fully, fully understand” racism~ @JoeBiden

These incessant observations about “white people” are themselves inherently racist and wholly antithetical to deceased civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision of a world where individuals would be judged by their character and merit (or lack thereof), not by the color of their skin.
This isn’t to suggest that Biden’s daughter would be treated just the same as everybody else. Many seem to believe that she would indeed receive preferential treatment from the cops — but not because of her skin color, but rather because of her last name, i.e., the same last name shared by Hunter Biden …
It’s true! If she were @JoeBiden‘s daughter she’d be busy with a sweet job earning $50-$100k per month in some job she knows nothing about but somehow was inexplicably hired for while he was vice president.

And if you were @JoeBiden daughter you would’ve be pulled over because he & his family get special treatment‼️

Joe-I’m white and have gotten pulled over and handed a few tickets. It’s not white privilege your daughter has, it’s ELITE privilege.

Are you freaking kidding me?!?! If she was @JoeBiden‘s daughter, she would have been making millions off of contracts with Ukraine, Romania, and China. #SitDownandShutup
