Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden was being skewered by black Americans and others online Friday after he suggested in an interview with a prominent black New York City radio host that if he struggled to vote for him over President Donald Trump he “ain’t black.”
The testy exchange came when Charlamagne Tha God, co-host of the popular The Breakfast Club radio show on New York City’s Power 105.1, questioned Biden about reports that he was considering Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, who is white, to be his vice president even though his campaign was saved by loyal black women voters from the south.
“I don’t know if you saw the op-ed in The Washington Post by some of the leading black women voices in the country and they feel since black women are such a loyal voting bloc and black people saved your political life in the primaries this year. They have things they want from you and one of them is a black woman running mate. What do you say to them?” Charlamagne Tha God asked.
“What I say to them is that I’m not acknowledging anybody who is being considered but I guarantee you, there are multiple black women being considered. Multiple,” he said, before he was interrupted by a handler for a second time during the interview telling him they had to wrap up.
