P Diddy and BET Founder Robert Jonhnson Turn On Joe Biden, Doom Campaign: “Apologize to every black person he meets”

by J.C McCallum

Joe Biden just got smacked by two of the most influential African Americans in the USA and it will doom his campaign.

Check out this statement by Robert L. Johnson, founder of Black Entertainment Television and The RLJ Companies:

“VP Biden’s statement today represents the, arrogant and out-of-touch attitude of a paternalistic white candidate who has the audacity to tell Black people, the descendants of slaves.”

“That they are not Black unless they vote for him. This proves unequivocally that the Democratic nominee believes that Black people owe him their vote without question; even though.”

“We as Black people know it is exactly the opposite.  He should spend the rest of his campaign apologizing to every Black person he meets.”

“That they are not Black unless they vote for him. This proves unequivocally that the Democratic nominee believes that Black people owe him their vote without question; even though.”

From The Hill:

Speaking on a call with black business leaders, Biden described the remarks as “cavalier” and said he never meant to seem as if he was taking black voters for granted.

“I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy. I shouldn’t have been so cavalier,” Biden said.

“I don’t take it for granted at all and no one should have to vote for any party based on their race, religion or background. There are African Americans who think Trump is worth voting for. I don’t think so and I’m prepared to put my record against his, that was the bottom line and it was really unfortunate, I shouldn’t have been so cavalier.”

The former vice president sparked a firestorm of controversy on the popular radio show “The Breakfast Club,” after Charlamagne said he wanted to continue discussing issues impacting the black community at a later point.

“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.”

Republicans, and even some Democratic leaders, blasted the remarks, accusing Biden of lecturing black people on how to think and questioning the racial authenticity of black voters.
