Biden to Blacks: ‘You Ain’t Black’ if You Don’t Vote For Me


At the close of a virtual interview Friday with Breakfast Club co-host and rapper Charlamagne tha God, White House hopeful Joe Biden astonishingly declared that if black Americans don’t support him over President Trump in the November election, “then you ain’t black.”


After Charlamagne ended with “It’s a long way until November, we’ve got more questions,” Biden added, unsolicited, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

“Imagine if Donald Trump said this,” Donald Trump, Jr. tweeted in response. The media would be apoplectic.

This witless statement perfectly crystallizes what Democrats — especially white Dem leaders — think of black Americans: that if you don’t stay on the leftist plantation, you’re not really black. That is how Democrats keep blacks in chains today — by threatening potential runaways with ostracism from the black community, by tarring-and-feathering them as race traitors. It’s condescending and blatantly racist, and it reveals just who Joe Biden and his party are.

Claiming That Voter ID Laws Are Evidence of Racism and Hatred

During a Black History Month event on February 25, 2014, Biden expressed frustration with a recent Supreme Court ruling that had struck down a provision of the Voting Rights Act that required certain (mostly Southern) jurisdictions with a pre-1965 history of voting suppression to pre-clear any changes in their voting laws (such as the implementation of Voter ID requirements, or changes to early-voting or same-day-voting regulations — with the Justice Department. Biden also claimed that new voter ID laws in North Carolina, Alabama and Texas were evidence of “hatred” and “zealotry.” Said the Vice President:

“At least 11 states have introduced legislation recently requiring voters to show ID at the polls, making existing voting laws more restrictive. Lawslike in North Carolina which imposed a new photo ID requirement, shortening early voting, and eliminating same-day registration and early voting. These guys never go away…. You guys [African Americans] know it, but it’s an important lesson for me. Hatred never, never ultimately goes away…. The zealotry of those who wish to limit the franchise cannot be smothered by reason…. This fight has been too long, this fight has been too hard, to do anything other than win — not on the margins, but flat-out win.”

    I couldn’t have replied much better than this from President of NAACP and the first black billionaire.

    In a statement, NAACP president Derrick Johnson underscored: “Yesterday, former Vice President Joe Biden made a comment about the NAACP’s endorsement. We want to clarify that the NAACP is a non-partisan organization and does not endorse candidates for political office at any level.”

    Johnson issued the statement in response to Biden’s racist, entitled insult to black Americans that “you ain’t black” if you don’t vote for him.

    The NAACP’s Derrick Johnson warned Biden that he should not assume that black voters will automatically vote for him just because he’s a Democrat. He also cautioned Biden to be better-prepared before interviews, so he doesn’t make sloppy gaffes that accidentally reveal what he really thinks beneath the virtue-signaling veneer.

    “You cannot take the African-American vote for granted,” Johnson said. “It is the vote that brought him this far. There has to be stronger preparation when you go on platforms like ‘The Breakfast Club,’ because it is an aggressive platform. But it’s also a platform that many millennial and younger African-American voters listen to. So it will, and can, leave an impression.”

    “In order for his campaign to win, he must garner more support from the African-American community, and those [‘you ain’t black’] comments take away from that,” Johnson said. “If his campaign is not taking that serious at this juncture, there’s a lot of questions that need to be answered.”

    Other prominent black leaders agreed. Robert Johnson was America’s first black billionaire and the founder of BET (Black Entertainment Television).
    After Biden made his racist remarks, Johnson issued a statement blasting Biden for acting like he and the Democrats own the black vote.

    “Vice President Biden’s statement represents the arrogant and out-of-touch attitude of a paternalistic white candidate who has the audacity to tell Black people — the descendants of slaves — that they are not Black unless they vote for him.
    This proves unequivocally that the Democratic nominee believes that Black people owe him their vote without question. He should spend the rest of his campaign apologizing to every Black person he meets.”

    Robert Johnson is a lifelong Democrat who has praised President Trump for producing record-low black unemployment and making strides to help the black community.

    “I give the president credit for doing positive things, particularly for African-Americans,” Johnson said in September 2019.
