Joe Biden's checkered history of race relations exposed in new book

A new book about President Biden and his family’s rise to power claims that the residence that he lived in at the beginning of his Senate tenure came with a covenant that barred it from being “owned or occupied by any Negro.”

“The Bidens: Inside the First Family’s Fifty-Year Rise to Power” by investigative reporter Ben Schreckinger of POLITICO is set to hit the bookshelves next week, but Fox News obtained an exclusive chapter from the book. 

During the first years of Biden’s Senate tenure, he moved into the house his parents had vacated in Faulkland, Delaware. Over a decade later it was reported that the house came with a “restrictive covenant” that said the house couldn’t be “owned or occupied by any Negro or person of Negro extraction,” the book claims.

Biden pushed back against the restrictive covenant in 1986, saying that his parents, Joseph Sr. and Jean, “filed a declaration of disavowal saying they find the restriction morally repugnant and they are not bound by it,” according to the Associated Press. Biden also claimed the deed his dad signed did not include the restrictive covenant.
