Presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden has a terrible habit of putting his foot in his mouth. This poor habit is also exacerbated by the former vice president’s tendency to lash out when he’s challenged by other people.
On Friday morning, Biden sat down for an 18-minute interview with The Breakfast Club co-host Charlamagne Tha God. During this time, the presumptive Democrat nominee spoke about his record and why he believes African-Americans should support him.
Finally when Charlamagne asked Biden to visit The Breakfast Club in New York to answer more questions, the former vice president made a very telling remark.

According to Biden, black voters who remain unsure of whether to vote for him over Trump merely “ain’t black.” Since making this asinine and condescendingly untrue statement, Biden has taken immense heat.
Sources report the numerous individuals who have called out the former vice president, leaving no option but for him to apologize.
What to Know About the Blowback Against Biden’s “You Ain’t Black” Commentary
The former vice president’s remarks speak to the reality that Democrats believe they are entitled to black votes and loyalty from the black community. Left-wingers also view black Americans as monolithic, as made clear in Biden’s assertion that blackness and support for Democrats are one and the same.
After facing so much heat, Biden attempted to walk back his statements, alleging that he has “never” taken African-American support for granted.

Many black conservatives weighed in on Biden’s telling statements, as did Vice President Mike Pence. While spending time in Georgia yesterday, Pence stated that he was “taken aback” by the presumptive Democrat nominee’s claim.
The vice president furthermore noted that Biden’s statements are “racist and offensive” to black Americans across the nation, regardless of their political beliefs.

Here’s the reality: no matter how much damage control Biden’s 2020 campaign tries to run, he will forever be on record vocalizing his assumed entitlement to support from black voters; he will also be on record revealing his belief that black Americans are a monolith.
This is the person who Democrats have chosen to all but nominate and collectively support to run against Trump in this year’s general election.
