NAACP Responds to Joe Biden Comments: We Never Endorsed Him, Or Anyone.
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) responded Friday evening to comments earlier in the day by former Vice President Joe Biden, who claimed — falsely — that the NAACP had endorsed him.
FNC’s Harris Faulkner: Biden’s Comments ‘More Than Just a Little Offensive’ – I’ve Fought This Notion ‘My Whole Life’.
On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Outnumbered,” co-host Harris Faulkner criticized 2020 Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden for his remarks about black voters by stating that the remarks are “more than just a little offensive.” And “I’ve been fighting against this notion that you’re not black enough unless you think a certain way, you vote a certain way, you speak a certain way, you do certain things, my whole life.”
Wait! There’s more:
John James: Biden’s ‘You Ain’t Black’ Comment ‘Pathetic’ — ‘Carry Hot Sauce in Your Purse Next Time’
“Vice President Biden, with all due respect, your latest comments are both pathetic and hurtful,” he said in a video shared to social media.
“I think in a civil discourse, we can have our disagreements on politics, but you challenging me, and millions of other people out there on their blackness. Descendants of slaves, from you,” he said, pointing at the camera.
“You’re embarrassing yourself, Mr. Vice President. Should you even be running for President in a Democratic Party that says they’re for black people?” he said.
Hudson: A Deplorable Moment for Every Black American in This Country.
Joe Biden saying, “You ain’t black” if you’re on the fence about voting for him over President Donald Trump is beyond insulting. Am I insulted? Hell yes. Am I surprised? Hell no.
I’ve been called a coon “with bad African blood” because my skin is black, and I’ve never, nor would I ever, vote for a Democrat. And why the hell would I? The Democratic Party was founded in the 1820s in part to preserve chattel slavery in America. After the Civil War, pro-slavery zealots in the Democratic Party became pro-segregation barbarians who brutalized, terrorized, and lynched those of my parents and grandparents’ generation if they even thought about voting for a Republican.
Sen. Tim Scott: Biden’s ‘You Ain’t Black’ Line ‘Sadly Par for the Course for Democrats’.
Scott, one of the most high-profile black elected officials within the Republican Party, took to social media shortly after Biden appeared for an interview on the Breakfast Club, a popular radio program, and made the controversial remarks.
“1.3 million black Americans already voted for Trump in 2016,” Scott wrote. “This morning, Joe Biden told every single one of us we ‘ain’t black.’ I’d say I’m surprised, but it’s sadly par for the course for Democrats to take the black community for granted and browbeat those that don’t agree.”
