Biden Blames ‘Bunch of White Guys’ for Failing Anita Hill

Former Vice President Joe Biden spoke about the Clarence Thomas hearings on Tuesday night at the Biden Courage Awards in New York City, blaming a “bunch of white guys” in the Senate for failing to grasp Anita Hill’s sexual harassment accusations.

Biden said Hill paid a “terrible price” for testifying against Thomas during his confirmation.

“I also realized there was a real and perceived problem the committee faced. They were a bunch of white guys. No, I mean it sincerely. A bunch of white guys hearing this testimony on the Senate Judiciary Committee,” he said. “So when Anita Hill came to testify she faced a committee that didn’t fully understand what the hell it was all about.”
