I think everyone and their sister has heard by now that Joe Biden called Barack Obama the first mainstream African-American – not mainstream African-American presidential candidate, mind you, mainstream African-American – to be “articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.” And basically everyone, correctly, considers this more than a tad racist and in all probability lethal to Biden’s campaign. But not enough words have been spent discussing the fact that Biden considers Obama “nice-looking.” The discovery that even an apparent racist like Biden can have a mancrush on a black man is more than a little encouraging.
P.S. – Just for the record, this isn’t an isolated incident. Biden’s been racially insensitive this whole campaign.
