ARLINGTON, VA – On November 11, 2021, U.S. President Joe Biden delivered a Veterans Day speech at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia where he referred to a mid-20th century legendary Black baseball player Satchel Paige as “the great negro”.
For those who may have missed the gaffe from initial shock, Biden did repeat the offensive and outdated word by clarifying it some saying “pitcher in the Negro Leagues” while he was honoring former U.S. Ambassador to Hungary Donald Blinken, an Army veteran and father of Secretary of State Antony Blinken. Satchel Paige played in what Biden described as the “Negro leagues” before moving to Major League Baseball in the late 1940s.
“I’ve adopted the attitude of the great Negro – at the time, pitcher in the Negro Leagues – went on to become a great pitcher in the pros – in the Major League Baseball after Jackie Robinson.”U.S. President Joe Biden

While the term was acceptable and common during the 1930s and 1940s, Biden may have momentarily forgotten either what decade he was in, or that the term is now considered offensive or even racist. For that, many social media users did not let him off the hook.
