CRINGE: Joe Biden Refers To Famous Historic Baseball Player Satchel Paige As ‘The Great Negro’ (VIDEO)

Joe Biden has a talent for saying things that make people cringe, and this week he did it again.

He was speaking about the famous baseball player Satchel Paige, who was black, but Biden called him ‘the great negro.’

Paige played for the so-called ‘Negro Baseball League’ but Biden didn’t have to use that word.

Biden was honoring former U.S. Ambassador to Hungary Donald Blinken, an Army veteran and father of Secretary of State Antony Blinken, during his speech when he launched into a story about Paige, who played in the so-called “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 of the Negro leagues, who went on to become a great pitcher in the pros — in Major League Baseball — after Jackie Robinson. His name was Satchel Paige,” Biden recalled.
