The comments made at the end of the Breakfast Club interview were in jest, but let’s be clear about what the VP was saying: he was making the distinction that he would put his record with the African American community up against Trump’s any day. Period.

Which is what makes this rebuttal to Sanders from fellow leftie Roxane Gay so notable:
Ma’am. What? He doesn’t get to “jest” like that. It wasn’t funny. It played into the long standing notion that the black vote is uncritical and guaranteed and the notion that blackness is mutable and defined by whiteness. https://t.co/wk1uWA5bzM

So at least there are a few liberals out there willing to acknowledge that what Joe Biden said was racist and wrong.
so cringe. And he had to say “ain’t” while he was at it 🥴

Imagine, just imagine the outcry if Donald Trump said to a white guy, “If you don’t vote for me you ain’t white!” OMG.
