Biden: Black Voters Considering Trump ‘Ain’t Black’

SourceBBC NEWS

BBC News:- Democratic White House candidate Joe Biden has said in an interview African Americans “ain’t black” if they vote for President Donald Trump over him.

The controversial exchange happened as radio host Charlamagne Tha God pressed the former vice-president on Friday about his outreach to black voters.

Mr Biden later expressed regret for the comment, insisting he had never taken African American support for granted.

Loyal support from black voters has been vital to Mr Biden’s candidacy.

Throughout the 18-minute interview, Mr Biden, 77, stressed his longstanding ties to the black community, noting his overwhelming win this year in South Carolina’s presidential primary, a state where the Democratic electorate is more than 60% African American.

“I won every single county. I won the largest share of the black vote that anybody had, including Barack,” he said of President Barack Obama, the country’s first African-American president, who picked Mr Biden as his running mate.

Mr Biden also “guaranteed” that several black women were being considered to serve as his vice-president. The presumptive nominee has already committed to selecting a woman to join him on the Democratic ticket.

Toward the end of the interview, a campaign aide interrupted to say the former vice-president was out of time.

When an aide for Mr Biden tried to end the interview, Charlamagne protested, saying: “You can’t do that to black media.”

“I do that to white media and black media,” Mr Biden replied. “My wife has to go on at 6 o’clock,” he said, apparently referring to Jill Biden needing to use their at-home broadcast studio.

Charlamagne urged Mr Biden to return for an additional interview, saying he had more questions.

“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Mr Biden responded.

Charlamagne said: “It don’t have nothing to do with Trump. It has to do with the fact that I want something for my community.”

“Take a look at my record, man!” Biden said, throwing his hands in the air, seconds before concluding the interview.

Charlamagne’s nationally syndicated Breakfast Club show reaches more than 8 million listeners each month and has nearly 4.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

It has also become an important campaign stop for Democratic candidates. In the most recent primary season, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senators Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Cory Booker all made appearances.

  1. The Real Joe Biden. Judge by color and not by character.
    2006 “You can’t go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent”
    2007 “Obama is the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean”
    2019 “Poor kids” just as bright as “white kids”
    2012 “They’re gonna put y’all back in chains.”
    2020 “I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black”
    2019 “We’ve got to recognize that the kid wearing a hoodie may very well be the next poet laureate and not a gangbanger”

  2. Black Americans have been used and abused by both parties. Yet they are always in the forefront in partisan politics. Biden and other rednecks should not abuse us …se.nd them a message…don’t vote for either

  3. What is affecting the black people ,is the same for the latino the asian the europeans,all those that live in the USA.This racial thing will never end

  4. Afterall Biden is correct after observing trump,s records…trying to male America great again!

  5. America can either rise or fall depending on the black vote, if they come out to vote or not. They came
    out to vote for Obama twice – what does that tell you. If they mess this up with their silly belly aching
    on who is black enough, then you’ll blow it and Trump wins it, and you will be blamed for blowing your
    chances. I can see WAR on the horizon – Trump will cripple Venezuela as a starter, cold war with China.
    This is only the beginning of what is spoken of to happen, Prayer can turn things around, only if Biden wins.
    The days that we are living in are the ‘Last Days’ open your eyes and look up, very strange things will happen.

  6. Former NFL player Jack Brewer said “the mask is off,” reacting on Sunday to former Vice President Joe Biden’s comment during an interview where he said that African-Americans unsure about whether to support him or President Trump “ain’t black.”
    “America can see the real Joe Biden, hopefully all of my African-American brothers and sisters,” Brewer stated. “It’s time to look in the mirror and have a real soul check to see the man that has really mass incarcerated black men over the last two-and-a-half-plus decades,” Brewer said on Sunday. Brewer was referencing Biden’s deep involvement in drafting the 1994 crime bill.
    Biden’s past has only harmed black Americans. Meanwhile Trumps economy provided the lowest unemployment in history. established enterprise zones in poor areas, provided significant support to Black Colleges, the list goes on and on.

  7. Then, according to you bro, go right ahead and vote for Trump, no one is stopping you. This has always
    been the history of America from way back. None so blind as he who would not see; but there’s a God above.
