Biden: ‘If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black’

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday emphatically defended his ties to the African-American community — telling a popular black radio personality that he “ain’t black” if he was still weighing whether to support Biden or President Donald Trump in November’s general election.

The remarks from the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee came during an at-times contentious interview on “The Breakfast Club” that aired Friday morning, during which co-host Charlamagne tha God challenged Biden over his decades-long record on racial issues and current contemplation of a black, female running mate.

“I’m not acknowledging anybody who is being considered, but I guarantee you, there are multiple black women being considered. Multiple,” Biden said of his search process for a vice presidential nominee.

It was then that an aide to the Biden campaign could be heard interjecting into the conversation, attempting to cut short the interview. “Thank you so much. That’s really our time. I apologize,” the aide said.

“You can't do that to black media!” Charlamagne retored.

“I do that to white media and black media because my wife has to go on at 6 o’clock,” Biden shot back, apparently referring to a subsequent media appearance by Dr. Jill Biden, before adding: “Uh oh. I’m in trouble.”

Can anything be covered or spoke about today without black this or black that. Even the bad ass virus making its way across the world. Hits black community harder. But nothing much said about a black coward punching on elderly defenseless people, or a black shooting up a graveyard killing again elderly. I don’t really care what flavor the SOB is. Just carry on without the f’n color.

His ties to the black community end with the servants in his mansions.

Ever notice how white Democrats talk down to blacks when trying to get their votes? Hillary was a champ at it, but she fooled very few. "And you know what I mean."

The Democrats have nothing to offer except paltry giveaways that "keep blacks in their places" (I.e., poor, uneducated, hungry and jobless), while pushing the narrative that the party is their savior.

12:12 Amen! It is so sickening. Look to the inner cities for absolute proof that the democrat party is rampant with racism. Just look at the schools for an example. Only in black areas would a school be allowed to fail so badly. In the better areas a school would never be allowed to get so bad and have such poor performing numbers. Same with the rats and garbage. The democrats think it's okay for black children to have to play amid rat feces and urine and trash. If the rats were all over the better areas they would be dealt with immediately and any trash that is dumped is picked up by the sanitation dept before it hits the ground. But in black neighborhoods it is allowed to remain there for months and sometimes years. In the eyes of the democrats blacks are 2nd class citizens who it is acceptable for them to live worse then I would ever allow my pets to live.

If you cannot open your mouth without incoherent babble pouring out of it and/or just flat sticking your foot in it "You ain't presidential material".

Ok, Biden did not mean that the way it came out and he apologized. Go ahead vote for Trump. He's so MUCH better! He always apologizes for his many racist remarks. RIGHT?
