Joe Biden apologizes for saying black voters choosing between him and Trump ‘ain’t black’
See the original posting on Boing Boing
Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden, on Friday, May 22, addressed a remark he made during an interview with Charlamagne Tha God:
“I should not have been so cavalier. I have never ever ever taken the African American community for granted.”
“I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy,” he added.
No one should have to vote for any party based on their race, their religion, their background.”
He was apologizing for saying “you ain’t black” if you’re deciding between Biden and Trump.
A testy exchange at the end of the interview with @cthagod. Biden, clearly frustrated by the insinuation he hasn’t done enough to help the black community, tells him “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump then you ain’t black” https://t.co/7u1IReMy6B
