The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) just delivered some more bad news to “you aren’t black Biden.”
During an interview with host Charlemagne Tha God on The Breakfast Club with New York’s Power 105.1 FM, Biden – now infamously – said, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” He went on to defend his record on serving the black community, claiming: “The NAACP has endorsed me every time I’ve run.”
In response, Derrick Johnson, president, and CEO of the NAACP issued a statement:
Yesterday [sic], former Vice President Joe Biden made a comment about the NAACP’s endorsement. We want to clarify that the NAACP is a non-partisan organization and does not endorse candidates for political office at any level. Persons affiliated with the NAACP at the national, state, and local levels are free to make candidate endorsements in a personal capacity, but they do not reflect support by the NAACP as an organization. The NAACP has one mission and that is fighting for and advancing our Black communities towards an equitable reality. Our primary focus at this moment is to ensure that our communities that have been victims of domestic terrorism and disproportionately impacted by this pandemic have the opportunity to cast their powerful vote come November.
Biden may have just lost a big portion of the African American vote, which he should thank because they gave him the win during the South Carolina primary to seal up the nomination.
The fact that the NAACP did not even mention that they support and called him out for saying they’ve never endorsed him tells you they aren’t happy. In case you missed it, here’s what Biden said and how he said.
