( – Over the weekend, reactions emerged from Black voters following President Biden’s commencement speech at Morehouse College in Atlanta, where some accused him of engaging in “race baiting” amidst waning support from the Black community as the November elections approach.

Lou Valentino, a New York resident, expressed his dissatisfaction with Biden’s remarks on “Fox & Friends,” criticizing the president for allegedly trying to hinder the progress of Black Americans. “It’s tough to hear that because imagine you going to college for four years… ready to… hit the world, start a career, and… this guy is trying to set you back literally, I don’t know, civil rights,” Valentino said to Lawrence Jones.

During the speech at Morehouse College, President Biden reflected on the challenges faced by African-American graduates, questioning the efficacy of American democracy for them. “You missed your high school graduation, you started college just as George Floyd was murdered, and there was a reckoning on race. It’s natural to wonder if the ‘democracy’ you hear about actually works for you,” Biden said.

Virginia business owner Ajay Brewer also criticized the Democrats on “Fox & Friends First,” suggesting that the party promotes a narrative of dependency and victimhood that he believes is no longer appealing to many Black voters. “It’s hopelessness, man… it’s the party of hopelessness,” Brewer remarked.

The discontent was further highlighted by a new Fox News poll indicating a 7% decline in Biden’s support among Black voters since October 2020, while former President Trump’s support increased by 9% in the same period.

Bernadette Wright, an independent voter from Georgia, voiced her frustration on “Fox & Friends First” about the generalizations made about Black voters. “America is changing and people are becoming more sensitive to what’s affecting us as individuals, as business owners, as parents. They can’t keep putting us in these race baskets,” she said.

The address at Morehouse was also marked by a minor protest where a few students and faculty members turned their backs on Biden, showing their displeasure without disrupting the event. This act was part of a broader context of unrest on college campuses, where issues like anti-Israel protests have influenced other universities to cancel their commencement ceremonies.
