On Tuesday I watched and listened to President Biden’s speech in Tulsa, Oklahoma (“Biden visits Tulsa to honor Black victims of 1921 massacre,” Web, June 1). It began well enough with the president highlighting the slaughter of Blacks by White residents of the city in 1921. But with a growing sense of bitterness, I listened as the speech changed into the most hateful, divisive, anti-White speech I have ever heard from a president, including Barack Obama. At the end it sounded much like a racial call to arms.

Mr. Biden, not Jen Psaki, must apologize for his words and affirm that what came out of his mouth was not what he meant to say. I don’t want to see more racial trouble. America has come a long way, but not all the way, in putting racial issues behind us. Now is not the time to throw that away.
