On Friday morning, former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presumptive nominee Joe Biden said black voters who have trouble deciding whether to support him or Pres. Donald Trump “ain’t black.”
This comment by Biden was given during an interview with co-host of the popular urban radio show, The Breakfast Club host, Lenard McKelvey, also professionally known as Charlamagne Tha God.
Charlamagne told Biden, you’ve got to come see us when you come to New York. It’s a long way until November. We’ve got more questions.”
Biden responded, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me for Trump, then you ain’t black.”
Charlamagne replied, “It don’t have nothing to do with Trump. It has to do with the fact that I want something for my community,” which Biden said his record in that area was “second to none.”
Charlamagne responded to all of the criticism of Biden’s statement, “We have been loyal to Democrats for a long time, black people have invested a lot into that party, and the return on investment has not been great. As Biden said in our brief interview, when I asked him if Dems owe the black community ABSOLUTELY was his answer. So let’s see what you got!!! Votes are Quid Pro Quo. You can’t possibly want me to Fear Trump MORE than I want something for my people.”
