- President Biden used the word “boy,” a term considered to be racial epithet when used to describe black men, to refer to Democratic Gov. Wes Moore, Maryland’s first black governor, in a speech on Wednesday.
- “You got a hell of a new governor in Wes Moore, I tell ya,” Biden said during remarks on the economy Wednesday to an audience of IBEW union workers in Lanham, Maryland.
- “He’s the real deal, and the boy looked like he could still play. He got some guns on him,” Biden added, eliciting cheers from the crowd.
- Moore, who played wide receiver on the John Hopkins University football team as a student, was elected governor of Maryland in a landslide last November. He is 44-years-old.
