Presumptive 2020 Democrat presidential nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden used the N-word 13 times during a Senate hearing according to US Senate transcripts.
Video has also surfaced of Biden using the N-word twice quoting someone else.
Well where was the dignity and respect of Black Americans or in your words @JoeBiden “Niggers” when you made this statement? Democrats this is YOUR nominee for President of the United States and @RepMaxineWaters endorsed this scoundrel! Explain this please! https://t.co/JY8XPqilOW pic.twitter.com/SX7hsB0e1F

During a senate hearing in 1985, Biden used the term over and over again while questioning William Reynolds, former President Ronald Reagan’s assistant attorney general for civil rights, who was being considered for promotion to associate attorney general.
Biden was specifically asking Reynolds about his role in providing clearance for a redistricting plan in Louisiana that was later struck down by the courts.
Breitbart News reports:
A memo was submitted to Reynolds before he approved the redistricting plan that included a racist quote from someone described as a “key legislator” in defeating the alternative redistricting plan. According to this memo, that legislator, then-Republican Rep. Charles Emile Bruneau of New Orleans, allegedly said he opposed the left’s desired redistricting plan for Louisiana in starkly racial terms. We already have a n***** mayor (in New Orleans), and we don’t need another n***** bigshot,” Bruneau was quoted in that document as saying.
During the hearing, Biden brought up the exact quotes and kept saying the N-word over and over again. The US Senate transcripts show that Biden used the term 13 times.
But, Biden doesn’t need to fear because MSNBC’s Joy Reid gave good old Joe a pass.
Reid, who is black, during her first broadcast at her new primetime spot on MSNBC interviewed Biden and after the story broke on Monday evening she refused to question Biden over the incident.
Even Georgia Democrat State Representative Vernon Jones called out Reid and Biden.

Reid’s decision to give Biden a pass exposes her hypocrisy because he has consistently called people out for using the slur.
