Former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday emphatically defended his ties to the African American community — telling a popular black radio personality that he “ain’t black” if he was still weighing whether to support Biden or President Donald Trump in November’s general election...
“You’ve got more questions?” Biden replied. “Well, I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
Cue the outrage! A white dude is telling black people they need his approval to be black!
Mind you, I don’t think anybody should be persecuted for saying something like this. It’s a bit clumsy but it isn’t meant to hurt. But selective outrage deployed for political reasons is immoral.
A lot more disturbing is the hint, hidden in the article, that Biden’s wife doesn’t let him do public appearances after 6 pm.
