Not only does Biden not sound great here, but also called Cedric Richmond "boy," something the left would lose it if he were a Republican: "I'm here with — with my senior adviser and boy who knows Louisiana very, very well — man — and — and New Orleans, Cedric Richmond." pic.twitter.com/T11qNAGJhu

His use of the term that is perceived to be derogatory towards Black people received criticism online. GOP national spokesperson Paris Dennard, who is black, pointed out that Richmond “is a 47 year old man.”
Cedric Richmond is a 47 year old man.
While Ja’Ron Smith was 38 years old when he was in a similar role for President Trump I can assure he was not called a “boy" by President Trump.
Joe Biden just continues to insult Black men openly and in public because he doesn’t care. https://t.co/LdTQ6CrTFb

“Joe Biden just continues to insult Black men openly and in public because he doesn’t care,” Dennard wrote.
Lavern Spicer, a Florida congressional candidate, called Biden a “rude, condescending racist,” adding that Richmond is “nobody’s boy.”
How DARE Joe Biden call Cedric Richmond “boy”?
Cedric is 47 years old. He’s nobody’s boy!
What a rude, condescending RACIST!!!
You just know he wanted to call him a “N” but knew that wouldn’t go over well.
What a sick, racist man Joe is.
