BREAKING: Joe Biden says he 'should not have been so cavalier' in comments he made about African Americans. Earlier, he had said anyone who had trouble choosing between him and President Trump 'ain’t black.'

ATLANTA (AP) — Joe Biden said he “should not have been so cavalier” in comments earlier Friday in which he suggested African Americans who back President Donald Trump “ain't black.' Biden...

Biden responded, “I do that to black media and white media” and said his wife needed to use the television studio.He then added: “If you’ve got a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or for Trump, then you ain’t black.”The comments come at a critical point in the presidential campaign as Biden tries to revive the mutli-racial and mulit-generational coalition that twice elected Barack Obama. He has already committed to picking a woman as his running mate and is considering several African American contenders who could energize black voters. But with black voters already overwhelmingly opposed to Trump, Biden is also considering candidates such as Klobuchar.

Trump and his allies, on defense for weeks over the president’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, were eager to seize on Biden’s comments.South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, a Trump supporter and the Senate’s sole black Republican, said he was “shocked and surprised” by Biden’s remark.

“I thought to myself, as an African American, been black for 54 years, I was struck by the condescension and the arrogance in his comments,” Scott said in a conference call quickly arranged by the Trump campaign. “I could not believe my ears that he would stoop so low to tell folks what they should do, how they should think, and what it means to be black.”

Symone Sanders, a Biden senior adviser who is also black, said his comment in Friday’s interview was “made in jest.”“Let’s be clear about what the VP was saying,” Sanders tweeted. “He was making the distinction that he would put his record with the African American community up against Trump’s any day. Period.”

Full Coverage:Election 2020Trump himself has a history of incendiary rhetoric related to race.When he launched his presidential campaign in 2015, Trump called many Mexican immigrants “rapists.” Campaigning in 2016, he asked black voters, “what the hell do you have to lose?”

In 2017, he said there good people on “both sides” of the clash in Charlottesville, Virginia, between white supremacists and anti-racist demonstrators that left one counter-protester dead.Last year, during a private White House meeting on immigration, Trump wondered why the United States was admitting so many immigrants from “shithole countries” like African nations. He also blasted four Democratic congresswomen of color, saying they hate America and should “go back” to where they come from, even though all are U.S. citizens and three were born in the U.S.

Biden encouraged listeners on Friday to “take a look at my record,” citing his work as senator to extend the Voting Rights Act of 1965.“The NAACP has endorsed me every time I’ve run,” he said. “Come on, take a look at my record.” Read more: The Associated Press »

Seem to remember Trump asking a rather large crowd, 'Where's my African American?' I'm not voting for Biden. And I ain't black Wow Liberal fools will defend liberal fools and don't mind him saying dumb things but is so critical of others . It's called hypocrisy! When was the last time you said ain't? That part of Biden's statement implies that that's how black people talk too? That's even more offensive!

I'm with you JoeBiden Jesus said in Matthew 15:18, '...the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart...' when Joe Biden said what he said on a whim, he exposed the contents of his heart. What's amazing is that he held this mentality even as he served as VP to a mixed President. Lol if Trump said this they’d demand he drop out of the race

I still have the hardest time understanding that an apology gets this much press compared to the systematic dismantling of our democracy and encroaching authoritarianism of the Republican Party. Sorry Joe. What politicians blurt out is what they REALLY believe. What they say to calm the waters afterward, is politics. Some people need to believe the narrative of compassionate Joe. If that helps, believe anything you want.

Disgusting. It’s okay! He should spend the day at sirusxm radio. Spend the whole day at urbanview! The 2008 photograph shows Biden with Robert Byrd, a West Virginia senator who was during the 1940s a member and organizer for the Ku Klux Klan. This man is a white man in a slew of nonsense racism; he’s not a racist. When you show me a picture of Biden kissing the coattails of Stephen Miller the way trump does, then I’ll say, whoa. Foh.

ᕼE ᗩIᑎ'T ᑎO ᗷIᒪᒪ ᑕᒪIᑎTOᑎ HE WAS BEING HIMSELF: A REPUBLICAN At least he’s willing to apologize when he steps in it. Trump pretends nothing happened or blames everyone else! crilly_jim You would not see Trump apologizing..... He would just be on here tweeting about it and calling us wrong, not him... Remember he's a God he is never wrong.🙄

Be honest, this 80yr man has lost it. Trying to understand what the Dems have up their sleeve to win White House is baffling. Lol. I would appreciate having a president who is able to apologize. Do NOT condone ‘labeling’ of people solely on race NOT even JoeBiden who NOW says, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump then you ain’t black,” Insult to injury, 'ain't' - Seriously?! We deserve better than Biden or Trump

Well sheeet! Joe is 100% correct Using a word like 'cavalier'...In a casual way...Then a potus who doesn't know what 'per capita' means .... Imagine, a politician that can admit a mistake. Hi, Joe ! You aren't either Joe, stay in your lane. I don't want to regret my vote for you in the fall. What a loser

If Joe Biden knows Black Ppl as well as I think he does... there's no need for backstepping! Please don't do it again on anybody's advice. Right on! Such a non issue. Joe Biden is not a racist. The racist is the guy who said there are good people on both sides of a KKK rally in Virginia, the same rally where a young lady was killed. He’s also the guy that said beat em up more and no more Muslims. He’s the racist.

A guy that admits to a misstep. Props He will get a pass because he is a Democrat. It is the epic hypocrisy of the progressive left. If Trump or any Republican for that matter had said this, the media would not stop talking about it 24 hours a day for weeks. Oh good. Now BigMedia Bigot army can stop attacking him as a bigot... I'm sorry but I haven't watched the nytimes contributers to CNN, & NBC who MUST be repeating their Thousands of lines of copy. ... Bigot Army gonna get ya next time JoeBiden

This is a man that owns up to his mistakes. How refreshing. He should have apologized and he did. Breaking: We don’t give a shit! Was it Biden who made up lies about the first and only Black President in American history not being born in the U.S.? Did Biden hire known KKK members to his administration?

Humble man. Love him. Now, report on the real news = almost 100K dead. Ok he’s apologized media. Move on. Unless you want to address the litany of trump gaffs. Hmmm thought so I agree that he was too cavalier in his statements. While Trump has been abusive in his rejection of voting rights and anti-discrimination laws that project the rights of African Americans.

That toothpaste won’t go back into the tube. Trump has 3% African American support. There is a reason for that. He is bad for their every day lives. Amazing how soon you're willing to forgive his condescending and racist remarks to all black people. Black people will show him at the polls He merely expressed how Dems truly feel. Always have.

YouAintBlack Most blacks understood exactly what he meant. A lot of blacks are saying, have said, and will say the same thing. No controversy. He seems to be apologizing a lot. First it was for harassing women and children, and now for overtly racist remarks. Uh huh 🙄 Hey Joe, you go white bread! Cavalier or truthful.

Really tired about Joe Biden excusing himself. What is he doing to help the country? Excellent use of ‘air stealing’ Biden chooses a controversy that he knows he wins. Takes all the air from Trump, all day. Well Played 👏 I’ve repeatedly ask black liberals what Trump has done that has hurt black Americans as President and they don’t answer. He’s helped, but not hurt. Dems Believe they own the black vote and I say own purposely

Joe's aight. Better to be to a little too slick than an out and out racist, lying, science denying grifter (and etc). 🤷🏾‍♀️ Oh hell, JoeBiden just spoke the truth. Why is this news when SecPompeo is found stealing taxpayer money for his own political benefit & Trump the perverted pathologically lying Birtherism sadist is setting us up for WW3!

A senile old man was the best that Democrats could nominate He meant exactly what he said and knew he would get a pass for it from the liberal media Joe l think you meant. Cava liar Oops. too late to put the cat back in the bag it was clearly a joke. I'm voting for Biden2020. He is an idiot Leave joe alone. We gotta choose this old white guy over the other old white guy.

Yep he just sealed his fate. Well he wasn’t gonna win anyway, this just made it worse. That desperation says they have something to do with this too So no 'I'm sorry'? Can't even say it because to them it admits fault. Thought so. fuckhim Joe Biden is a man that takes responsibility for his actions... unlike 45.

Really? After everything that Trump has said Biden has to apologize for stating the obvious in an indelicate manner? Give me a break! The AP Aint Black! YouAintBlack He is human and can make mistakes or miss speak like everyone of us.Nobody is perfect! Istandwithjoe And with that, CNN drops reporting of his racist statement as if it never happened

Translation: 'I shouldn't have been so honest' Vice President Biden you most definitely have my vote sir but can we move away from identity politics in America? When I grew up in the 70s and 80s it was about wages and taxes and corporations versus the little guy, and the character of the candidate, that’s all.

Yikes. He basically said blacks are unintelligent and can’t choose without him telling them what’s good for them. Wake up and vote Bernie. Senile ol coot So hes admiting hes a racist and yet the media and news organizations are running defense for him. Gotcha. He did not have to apologize for that shiggady. I swear we’ll do anything to hand Trump this win.

Cavalier? New euphemism for stupid? Very refreshing hearing someone take responsibility for a mistake. Trump said - -that White Nationalists are fine people, -that a judge was unfit to preside over a case because he was a Mexican-American, -that African-Americans originate from shit-hole countries, -that Mexicans are all drug dealers and rapists.....

What does that even mean? kfdinews Wait until he announces Stacey Abrams as his VP running mate. That will make everything better. This dude is shot the f out. 44years of these comments, remember it's because of him that Trump is in office He shouldn’t apologize, NO ONE who has seen Chumps racism in the last 4 years can’t deny Joes right. Love how all the repubrussians on here r suddenly outraged.

All is forgiven. Sure, Joe supported segregation and wrote the 1993 Crime bill. And sure, he associated black people with cockroaches. But none of that compares to Trump's racist policies since becoming President. I would list them here but my phone is dying. YouAintBlack JoeBiden I’m definitely disgusted with the current administration but you need to face it: you’re out of touch to the point of being regressive. I’ll still vote for your tired old white man ass, but know that I’m goddamned sick and tired of this lesser than two evils dialectic

How long did it take him to comment? He should have done right there Meh. Not a big deal. Hello'captain obvious' ! If you can’t choose Biden over Tara Reade, you ain’t women He was speaking what he absolutely believes Too late, Joey. Your racism is noted. 'I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man.' Joe Biden

Racist YouAintBlack Ahhh JoeBiden you pronounced racist wrong. 2020Elections If Trump said this, this tweet would be worded way differently. The presidential debates are going to be hilarious. 😉 Any black person voting for trump is a disgrace to there race blacklash There you have it Black People, If Romney said if you vote for Obama you ain't white. Wake up Black People we Don't deserve this kind of racism from Democrats, I wonder if he had his Hot Sauce in his pocket when he said that?

Who does he explain talking in slang quote “ give me a break man...man!? Never heard a presidential candidate say that to a non person of color or to say one of your reports MAN!!! Stop trying g to make this ok it’s not ppl of color don’t need RacistJoe or u sugar coating it. Biden views Afr Americans as nothing more than a voting block, not individuals with their own hopes and aspirations... this is pathetic and insulting.

Biden has always been a 'gaffe machine'. It's more obvious to me that he is and always has been, just a ridiculous, arrogant, a*shole. If I vote for Biden will I be a better dancer? Will it give me the power to fry chicken better? How about basketball skills? Don’t worry Joe. The media has your back!! So here's my issue with this. Dems are again dealing with a crazy double standard. Biden made a foolish remark, but Trump has call El Salvador, Haiti, and Africa (a continent) shithole countries. They are both wrong but we should not equivocate these two men's stances.

African Americans? Isn't that like a '90s racist term? I wouldn’t have a problem with this if OBAMA said it. I don’t have a problem with Biden either. I would have a problem if Trump said it. Y’all get my drift? The guy is a classic bigot! Hmm yes perhaps just a bit too cavalier I get what he meant but what about the white folks having the same trouble?

Totally Racisttheyallsuckgiveusachoice Trump: Checkmate IMO: JoeBiden was essentially saying if you vote for a president who does give 2 F’s about ANY race, especially people of color, and if you vote for Trump after seeing what he’s about, you ain’t down with progression of racial equality. I just don’t think our boy Joe realized

This guy is a loser big time!!! Too bad so sad... you said it and we know he means it. Sad people even think this way. Who cares. COVID-19. No national strategy. You mean not so arrogant and stupid ? Who really cares anymore and does it even fucking matter? The big orange 🍊 monster is going to win again and will be hell on wheels during term 2. And you know this, man.

Please don’t apologize. I think this error will make it very likely that Biden will pick a Black Woman as VP. Look at all of these white people outraged. 😂😂😂 The problem is...he's kinda right. Trump is so anti-minority...it's insane. But Biden has proven himself to ALSO be pretty racist. So who are minorities expected to vote for? The DNC fucked up REALLY bad...like way worse than with Hillary. Biden is horrible...so is Trump.

Biden didn’t say anything that wasn’t true when he made the comment. He was keeping it real. But some got there panties in a bunch so he manned up and apologized. But to call him racist is just dumb..Really 🤦‍♀️ So cavalier... Biden wrote the 1990s mass incarceration bill that jailed tens of thousands of blacks. Biden represented the predatory credit card companies and banks over changing blacks for credit. Biden supports open boarders to flood the US with cheap Latin Labor taking jobs from blacks.

But many of all colors, creeds, etc. will vote for him regardless Does he know what day it is and what the hell he saying and the Democrats want him for president Joe is so out of touch he hasnt noticed Trump has the black voters that think for themselves, the ones that have walked away from the plantation. It isnt the Republicans we support, it is Trump. We will back the Republicans that back Trump and help us get our country back

Who the hell pissed in JoeBiden’s Cheerios today? Hindsight is always 20/20 Any African American who identifies as a Republican in the 21st century is self-loathing. There I fixed it. With all the racist things that Trump has said & done - it's a joke this is being given any attention whatsoever. But he’s not racist, right? Smh

Terrible things said: Trump: 17,847,362 Biden: 4 Joe Biden is out of touch. Americans have every right to choose a candidate of their preference no matter what race, religion or sex. Crazy to think that a comment like this will probably get very little attention from main stream media... WakeUpAmerica wake

Oopsy Be Cavalier and have balls.. It’s out there. Jerk At least he admits when he screwed up as opposed to the glorified douchebag currently occupying the White House. You know the guy who has the reincarnation of Josef goebbles on his staff SleepyJoe strikes back realDonaldTrump he is always gaffe prone Basically he is just a clown like Trump Americans tend to pick idiot

I love how White people are angrier than Black people about this Ya think? Crazy how the mind works when your true feelings get caught up and you accidentally let it slip out 😂 honkyjoe Cavalier? It was racist, and disgusting 'joke' that shows he has already assumed he has the support by default I guess everything is A OK!

SORRY, AS****E, PERMANENT DAMAGE HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE.... Nah Joe... hold this L All of these offended white conservative MAGA people in the comments. Stop pretending like you’re offended. You only care about minorities when it is convenient. Democrats and the media will spin I am sure. It will fit their narrative. Joe is just being joe. No biggie lol

So it’s now ok in America to tell racist jokes if you apologize afterwards? Just trying to understand the new PC rules while JoeBiden is running for President. Democrats defended Joe Biden after TaraReade & now they defend Joe Biden after these racist comments? YEAH TELL ME HOW REPUBLICANS ARE THE PROBLEM!!! JoeBidenIsARacist AintBlack YouAintBlack

JoeBidenIsAnIdiot An apology and a bandaid doesn't cover up inner soul remarks. .... well they're not...lol. I often wonder about the sanity of a black trump supporter... He said if you don’t vote for me you ain’t black. Just another misleading headline to try and save the senile dem nominee and soften the blow. The media is crooked and I’m sick of it.

🤦‍♂️ Black people are not slaves of Democratic Party. Please Joe, ya gotta bring your ‘A Game’ every single time. That's damn right he's sorry. How is the current white supremacist system meant to benefit POC? JoeBiden you are not entitled to the votes of people of color just because you are a Democrat. You said the quiet part out loud, fool.

Now we know why he's searching for a female VP, he couldn't find a qualified black man (i.e. Obama, Booker). Go ahead, mock Trump, at least his IQ is higher than a potato! Lol...after learning that most of the blacks are actually voting for trump.. I feel that way about Christians who support trump, for sure. If you support him, you ain't Christian.

Cavalier? More like racist! Hey Joe, reserve your spot at the nursing home now!!! If Trump ever said that... I don’t necessarily think Joe is a RACIST! He, like so many politicians, just say ANYTHING to get votes. Most of the time Joe’s Media would have covered this up, but they were too late on this one.

Ohhhhhh.... that makes it all better It’s not like those poor black kids will ever get the same education as white boys I’m 100% black and I take no exception to JoeBiden comment. I fully understand the context of his comment and believe that he meant no harm. Trump is not an option especially for blacks and minorities.

Hahahaha this campaign should be called Gaffe 2020. These two are meant for each other This time or the last 50? “Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success” -henry ford (not a commentary on henry ford) “Poor kids are just as smart and as talented as white kids.” “He’s gonna put y’all back in chains!” You guys, joebiden isn’t racist, he’s just too cavalier.

JoeBiden Since when is cavalier another word for racist? Honestly Biden could just walk around naked and screaming and he’d still be the nominee and the only person most Dems would vote for. Just go mask off, dude- it’s not like you’ll remember this race anyways. Lol old dude knew EXACTLY what he was saying for the first time in months and he’s gotta backtrack it 😂

If Trump said that the democRATS would be screaming bloody blue murder claiming Trump is unfit to be re-elected an should step down IMMEDIATELY if not sooner Screaming Trump is racist!!! Yet Biden gets a pass and from the LIBERAL OWNED MEDIA.....CRICKETS!! So he's not admitting it was wrong, just that he should've said it differently.

Lying sack of schiff I’ll take the guy that hasn’t deliberately killed 93,000 Americans through willful, criminal negligence because he’s too busy live tweeting Fox News all day. DeedsNotWords! realDonaldTrump has been blatantly racist for as long as shit’s been brown. You want to stack an off the cuff comment from Biden & say it’s equivalent to demanding innocent kids get executed or refusing to rent to Blacks? Then you are too brainwashed to vote.

“I am sorry I am a racist. Please don’t hold it against me in November” - Joe Biden Another apology tour for joebiden. He always apologizing. Geez Wow, a candidate who apologizes. Got my vote Where’s the lie? Oh my!! Blacks have become chips in a political poker play. How embarrassing for the country to have to go from Trump to Biden. We really are the Florida of the world.

If there were trump, no thought of apologizing to us! We have a clown president, giving medical advice like ingest cleaning fluids but grab our pearls over this foolishness. White man telling blacks how to vote then judging them Either way, I would vote for a blind three-legged goat before I vote for Trump.

I'm black and I will say it for you JoeBiden . Your right they ain't black. You know -- glib, breezy, edgy, flip. It's not racism, just a certain devil-may-care bravado that got a little ahead of itself. We straight. Biden Translation: 'I'm sorry you mistook my clear and obvious racism as racism.' JoeBidenIsARacist

He ment it, all .... Blacks call it clownin’ until they decide to take offense only because a white guy said it. Challenge me on this? My husband is a black guy from Harlem. You’ll lose against me. The is news because media love to go along with distractions instead of just writing about how Trump and his administration are most corrupt in US History. Beginning to think they welcome another 4 years of chaos.

Too late, it’s a clip that we’ll hear thru November. CreepyJoe Yeah no shit. Wish realDonaldTrump would take a lesson from JoeBiden and learn to apologize! TrumpLiesEverytimeHeSpeaks WhiteHousePressBriefing TrumpIsANationalDisgrace Good to have a President who is apologetic. In real news: The COVID-19 death toll is nearing 100,000.

It’s morning radio. He was just having fun. But yes glad he said sorry. This is a NothingBurger. Time to move on.

Biden Says Black Voters ‘Ain’t Black’ if They’re Considering Trump Joe Biden said on Friday that black voters torn between voting for him or President Trump “ain’t black.” His comments came at the end of a testy exchange with Charlamagne Tha God on “The Breakfast Club.” Joe Biden means no ill will by saying that. He is simply trying to drive home a point. But I would have preferred he said, you ain't humane if you are thinking of voting for Trump! Biden is not much different than Trump on Race issues. Biden is a racist as well, however, he needs Black Votes more desperately than Trump.

Black Voters Who Support Trump 'Ain't Black,' Biden Tells Charlamagne Tha God“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump then you ain’t Black,” the presumptive Democratic nominee told the radio host. Start your outrage engines, white people Joe Biden is gangsta my friends 🙏🏾 that’s why Banjeet endorse In jest.

Joe Biden, in testy interview, says 'you ain’t black’ if you're undecided over him vs. Trump Joe Biden , in a testy exchange with radio host Charlamagne tha God, said "you ain’t black" if you&39;re undecided on whether to back him or Trump. Not even 10:45, and this will probably stand as the most racist thing I've seen all day. EricSturrock Why... would.... he....say.....that...... ?!?!?! He needs some better people prepping him. Yikes

Biden Facing Backlash After Suggesting ‘You Ain’t Black’ If You Support TrumpThe comments came on the popular “The Breakfast Club” syndicated radio show. well, I mean This guy is a liability. Can the democrats really do no better? He’s a dinosaur. Where’s the youth, energy, diversity, dynamism? JoeBiden has lost his mind.

Biden tells African American Trump supporters 'you ain't black' Joe Biden tells The Breakfast Club's Charlamagne tha God and African American voters in an interview Friday that 'you ain’t black' if they back President Trump's reelection. Making the same mistakes as 2016 Literally telling black people he isn't going to do anything to get their votes. Biden proves that Democraps are still the party of slavery.
