Joe Biden Says You ‘Ain’t Black’ If You Don’t Support Him

( Joe Biden can’t help himself when it comes to telling people not to vote for him.
On Thursday, during an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president said a popular black radio personality “ain’t black” if he were still trying to decide between Biden and President Donald Trump.
Biden was appearing on the nationally-syndicated hip-hop morning show that is based in New York. Over the years, it has been a popular stop for White House candidates.
On Thursday, Biden was sitting with co-host Charlamagne tha God when things got a little testy, and Biden didn’t respond all that well. Charlamagne started pressing Biden on his record regarding racial issues and whether he was considering a black female to be his running mate.
In response, Biden said:
“I’m not acknowledging anybody who is being considered, but I guarantee you, there are multiple black women being considered. Multiple.”
In the background after he said that, one of Biden’s campaign aides injected and could be heard trying to cut the interview short, saying: “Thank you so much. That’s really our time. I apologize.”
Charlamagne responded back: “You can’t do that to black media!”
And that’s when Biden lost composure and exposed himself as being weak. He retorted:
“I do that to white media and black media because my wife has to go on at 6:00. Uh oh. I’m in trouble.”
Charlamagne tried to plead for more time: “Listen, you’ve got to come see us when you come to New York, VP Biden. It’s a long way until November. We’ve got more questions.”
Biden’s reply: “You’ve got more questions? Well, I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
Apparently, all African-Americans, by nature, have to be for Biden and against Trump, according to the Democrat. They aren’t allowed to have an opinion for themselves.
Charlamagne’s response: “It don’t have nothing to do with Trump. It has to do with the fact [that] I want something for my community.”
Biden retorts: “Take a look at my record, man! I extended the Voting Rights [Act] 25 years. I have a record that is second-to-none. The NAACP’s endorsed me every time I’ve run. I mean, come on. Take a look at the record.”
Charlamagne was pressing Biden hard throughout the interview on some tough questions, including why Biden was so reluctant to say the 1994 crime bill “was damaging to the black community.” In the early 1990s, Biden was a U.S. senator representing Delaware, and he helped author the legislation in question.
Since then, the crime bill has been blamed for targeting marginalized communities and people of color disproportionately. Still, Biden has refused to issue an apology for the bill, even going as far as saying Hillary Clinton shouldn’t have apologized for it when she was a candidate back in 2016.
Of Clinton’s apology, Biden said:
“She was wrong. What happened was, it wasn’t the crime bill. It was the drug legislation. It was the institution of mandatory minimums.”
