Joe Biden: If You Can’t Decide on Voting for Trump or Me, ‘Then You Ain’t Black’

Former Vice President Joe Biden sparked some controversy over remarks about race during an interview on the New York City radio show “The Breakfast Club.”

In the interview on Friday, Biden was asked if he will name a black woman as his running mate.

The former vice president declined to name anybody that he is considering as a running mate but said, “I guarantee you there are multiple black women being considered.”

Biden’s team had called the interview over but the Democrat added as a parting message, “If you have a problem figuring out whether me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

He added, “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.”

See Biden’s comments below:

Katrina Pearson, who leads Trump’s outreach to black voters responded, “It is clear now more than ever, following these racist and dehumanizing remarks, that Joe Biden believes black men and women are incapable of being independent or free thinking.”

She continued, “He truly believes that he, a 77-year-old white man, should dictate how black people should behave. Biden has a history of racial condescension and today he once again proved what a growing number of black Americans and I have always known — Joe Biden does not deserve our votes.”

Charlamagne tha God, the radio host of “The Breakfast Club” told Mediaite after the Biden interview, “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!!!”

Biden’s senior advisor Symone Sanders hit back at the criticism, saying on Twitter, “Vice President Biden spent his career fighting alongside and for the African American community. He won his party’s nomination by earning every vote and meeting people where they are and that’s exactly what he intends to do this November.”

She continued, “The comments made at the end of the Breakfast Club interview were in jest, but let’s be clear about what the VP was saying: he was making the distinction that he would put his record with the African American community up against Trump’s any day. Period.”

  1. He’s channeling the spirit of LBJ there but he still has some parts of his dementia riddled mind to contain his true nature in public. Why do you think his handlers called the interview over they saw his outburst coming, and were still unable to prevent it before it spilled out to some extent.

  2. Biden is right. The only thing he has to campaign to are the undecided whites. He has the black vote he has the Hispanic vote” except for the Cubans”.

  3. Democrats have been using blacks for decades. They offer free stuff in return for their vote. Once blacks get used to getting trinkets, they have to vote to keep getting them. It’s like getting someone hooked on drugs. Democrats are the most racist people on earth. Just look at their record since the Civil War. Look to their involvement in the KKK.

  4. ‘If You Can’t Decide on Voting for Trump or Me, ‘Then You Ain’t Black’’ No problem deciding there, but I’m white. Not sure what any of it means.

      1. There little shits.
        There are pathetic little shits.
        There are really pathetic little shits.
        Then there is you Stan.
        The most pathetic little shit ever.

        Slither back under your lump of shit.

        1. John seriously I’m still waiting for you to present a coherent or point in general. All you’ve literally ever done is use coded curse words and rant or just use whatever curse words won’t get you moderated. I’m serious as I can be right now please present a point with a fact based argument to support it, and I’ll take you seriously instead of immediately thinking you’re a troll.

          1. Go phuhk yourself William.

            Clear enough for ya ?

            I honestly do not give a shit what you think of me or why.

          2. John, a coherent point of view? Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!!! You’re talking to a mentally challenged dolt, prancing around in his basement, smearing peanut butter on himself or a child on his mommy’s computer, thinking he’s cute.
