African-Americans exploded at presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden after he told “The Breakfast Club” during an interview Friday black voters “ain’t black” if they haven’t decided to vote for him.
“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black,” Biden said during “The Breakfast Club” broadcast.
Conservative podcaster and activist Candace Owens called Biden’s comments “disgusting” — and of course, they were, to say the least.

Democrats, she said, “view black people as trained chimpanzees who should not ask questions, but perform the same circus act every 4 years,” she wrote on Twitter.
The 2020 campaign of President Donald Trump immediately condemned Biden.
This is disgusting.

U.S. Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) called Biden’s comment “par for the course” for Democrats.
“1.3 million black Americans already voted for Trump in 2016. 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 brow beat those that don’t agree,” he wrote on Twitter.

Former George W. Bush spokesman Ari Fleischer saw some parallels between Biden’s insult and a previous statement by twice-failed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016.
“There’s not much difference between what Biden said this morning [sic] about blacks who support Trump “aint black” and what Hillary said about deplorables. In both cases, they’re saying if you don’t support me, there’s something wrong with you. Both statements are awful,” he noted.

Jeffrey A. Dove Jr., an Army veteran running for Congress in Virginia as a Republican also blasted Biden.
“WTF…because I don’t support your failed policies. Things like the 94 crime bill, Obamacare and others “I ain’t black” based on @JoeBiden‘s words. That is basically saying the Dem party owns me because of skin color. I wonder if Rep. Wexton feels the same way. #VA10,” he wrote.

Others were equally disgusted and disturbed by Biden’s comment.
@JoeBiden is the same typical Democrat that has been around in Washington for centuries. Democrats have always racist and for whatever reason have always gotten the Black voters. The Democrats just want the votes, they could care less about the Black community.

Joe Biden just said the quiet part out loud. The Democratic Party DOES believe that minorities are their property. The Democratic Party keeps minorities in social cages and farms them for votes.

Finally, Biden says what I have known for years. The Democrat party is the modern Plantation owners. They promise minorities that they will care for them, all they have to do is keep voting democrat. Thanks for dropping the mask #QuidProJoe

But of course, black Democrats defended Biden., including Nikole Hannah-Jones, who won a Pulitzer Prize last year for her bogus “1619 Project.”

The Left-wing, Democrat-supporting media will, of course, rally around Biden as well — because Democrat racism is okay.
