Joe Biden Claimed He Attended Historically Black University; University Disagrees

(Breitbart) – Delaware State University (DSU) has refuted Joe Biden’s claim that he attended the historically black institution — the latest example of Biden being caught embellishing his academic credentials.

Biden made the little-noticed claim in October 2019, as he was campaigning in South Carolina.

The Washington Times reported Friday:

Carlos Holmes, director of news service for Delaware State, said that Mr. Biden was never a student, although he has made appearances twice on campus for commencement speeches at the public university in Dover, one of the nation’s historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs).

“Vice President Biden did not attend DSU,” said Mr. Holmes in a Thursday email. “However he was the Commencement keynote speaker in 2003 and [2016], and during the former he was awarded an honorary doctoral degree.”

Mr. Biden made the claim ahead of the South Carolina Democratic primary during a town hall held Oct. 26, 2019, at historic Wilson High School in Florence, which was founded in 1866 by the Freedmen’s Bureau for Black children seeking an education.

“I got started out of an HBCU, Delaware State — now, I don’t want to hear anything negative about Delaware State,” Mr. Biden told the audience, drawing laughter, as shown on video. “They’re my folks.”

In his 2007 biography, Promises to Keep, Biden never mentioned Delaware State University, though he described his experience at the University of Delaware.

The university’s website notes:

DSU enjoys a long history as one of America’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Founded in 1891 as the State College for Colored Students, DSU is proud of our heritage as one of the country’s first land-grant educational institutions. Today, we’re a welcome center of learning for students from many backgrounds. Our current population includes a 63% African-American enrollment and an increasing number of Caucasian, Hispanic, Asian and other international students.

Public statistics suggest that nearly 10% of the student body today is white.

Biden’s false claims about his academic record helped destroy his first presidential campaign in 1987. Among other claims, Biden said he had graduated in the top half of his law school class. He graduated near the bottom.


  1. Biden attended the all-black school on a basketball scholarship. He led the school to four straight national championships, led the nation in scoring and rebounding four straight years, was drafted by the LA Lakers and is in the NBA Hall of Fame. When he retired, he ran for Senate and was first elected to office180 years ago.

    And if you don’t believe him….you are a lying, dog-faced pony soldier.

  2. Definitely elder abuse. His wife should be ashamed of herself. Guess she chooses wealth over the welfare of her husband.
    Shameful Catholics both.

  3. And since when is going to a Black college any kind of ’embellishment’? What a joke! hell; ambulance-chaser Benjamin Crump sounds like a better speaker than bite it ever did-maybe he is even a better liar-who knows?
    And another thing: What is with the draft-dodgers? Ol’ heel spurs and ‘wheezy-peazy’ certainly seem to be neck and neck in doing the good ol’ draft-dodger stomp; this masters debate ought to be interesting-to say the least! I’ll say this: Trump may be a draft-dodger and women might not like him-HOWEVER, I checked old ‘bitten’ out and Trump has done more in three years and change then biden, and his black sister ol’ camel-face heels-up have done in their whole careers-combined!

    • Sure he does. Biden is smart, Just ask him. It’s Tuesday! Ugh, It’s Tuesday! It’s Tuesday!
      Ugh, What was the question?? I have three degrees. Ugh, It’s Tuesday! I want to go home!!!! It’s Tuesday!

  4. Pervert Biden is in the Progressive Socialist Communist Fascist Racist Democrat Party that is a Party of Lies, Slander, Hate, violence. He is in the that portrays him and supports his lies. The Communist Governments are proud to call Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, Shifty, Clinton and all the Democrats COMRADES. They will conquer America without firing a shot as Russian leader Khrushchev once stated.
    The Progressive Socialist Communist Fascist Racist Democrat Party is making it come true. This is why anyone who supports this evil party are traitors to God, Country and themselves.

  5. OMG , Biden lied, say it isn’t so !

    *Biden lied about working in a mine. (valor stealer)
    *Biden lied about being shot at in Iraq. (valor stealer)
    *Biden lied about marching in the civil rights marches. (valor stealer)
    *Biden lied about the truck driver and his wife/child’s death. (Malicious deception)
    *Biden lied about the affair with his current wife. (shameful)
    *Biden plagiarized others. (no conscience)
    *Biden’s Vietnam draft conduct. Concluding with an exemption for youth asthma**. Something that never stopped him from playing or bragging about football. Nor, mentioning having it in his “Promises to keep” memoir. Who, or how many died in his place (4 deferments, 1 exemption) ? With all of Joe’s lies and conduct. Joe, wouldn’t shy away from misusing the closing line in Private Ryan ; ‘Tell me I’m a good man’.. (no way to sum this up as other than spineless).

    ** Did he have it ? Or, was it just another fabrication (bought and paid for)? One would logically think he’d have declared it first time drafted. Or, was he just good Old Joe; F’n STUPID?

  6. As Biden is exposed more and more with long period between him being sen by the voting public is my experience to see him a a straw stuffed scarecrow wearing the clothing of a once cognitive competent person. This would be embarrassing to anyone with all his faculties in tact functioning as they should. This does not say that Biden’s integrity has been of one that could be respected, but intellectually he has been better. So now the handlers are stuffing him and propping him up with the speeches and protecting him from having to speak his mind which does not appear to be intact. This is no shame to a person dealing with dementia or other neurological disability, but it is shameful and reflects on those around him s packaging him up to be something he is not so they can use the image they have built to deceive the voting public.

    But they are not totally depending on the promoted image and the lies they have created with their window dressing. Voter fraud is their tool of choice. We know it and they know it , BUT THE DEMOCRATS PERCEIVE THAT THEIR DENIAL WILL GET THE FARCE ELECTED.
