Back in his saner day, Joe Biden worried that schools would become "racial jungle[s]" if integration was not orderly imposed.
"Unless we do something about this, my children are going to grow up in a jungle, the jungle being a racial jungle with tensions having built so high that it is going to explode at some point," he said.
The remark was made in 1977 and "appears to come from a congressional hearing related to anti-busing legislation, Biden emphasized wanting to 'insure we do have orderly integration of society,' adding he was 'not just talking about education but all of society,'" according to businessinsider.com [Joe Biden worried in 1977 that certain de-segregation policies would cause his children to grow up 'in a racial jungle', by Grace Panetta, July 15, 2019].
The far-left "mainstream" media came to Senator Biden's defense after the remark was made public by the NYT's Stolberg, above in July, 2019 [How Joe Biden Became the Democrats’ Anti-Busing Crusader, by Astead W. Herndon and Sheryl Gay Stolberg, July 15, 2019]. Biden, the media assured us, was advocating for racial integration. He just wanted it done in an orderly fashion.
Nonetheless, the choice of words reveals a long history of "insensitive" comments made by Biden. Those words, in turn, expose Biden's racially "insensitive" thinking.
Perhaps the former vice president requires a sensitivity training class; the type that was recently banned by President Donald Trump.

Biden has a long history of advocating for racial integration. He also has a long history of practicing racial segregation.
He reportedly resides at 1209 Barley Mill Rd. in the Greenville neighborhood of Wilmington, Delaware, 19807, according to zillow.com. Greenville is a predominantly white upscale neighborhood with a black population of 0.47 percent, according to datausa.com. He also rents a $4.7-million mansion in the Washington, D.C. suburb of McLean, Virginia. McLean, is a city of nearly 50,000 of whom about 1.8 percent are black, according to the 2010 census.
For comparison, the nation's black population is about 13 percent.
