What you need to know:

- In June 1985, then-President Ronald Reagan nominated William Bradford Reynolds to be associate attorney general of the United States

- Joe Biden, who was a senator at the time, spoke about a court ruling concerning a Louisiana redistricting plan approved by Reynolds that was criticized for being biased against Black residents, Reuters reports

- Biden read out parts of a memo addressed to Reynolds that contained racial slurs, Snopes reports

 

"Biden was wielding the quote with the racist slur as evidence against Reynolds’ fitness for the position." — PolitiFact
