Joe Biden just keeps the gaffes going.
On Friday morning the former VP said, that if black Americans are unsure whether to support him over Trump in the November 2020 election, “then you ain’t black.”
Such is the scourge of identity politics within the ranks of the Democrats that Biden is not the only one to think that minorities aren’t entitled to individual thought. Democrat Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (of The Squad) infamously said during the Trump “shith*le country” saga,
“We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice. We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice. We don’t need Muslims that don’t want to be a Muslim voice. We don’t need queers that don’t want to be a queer voice.”
How quickly The Squad (AOC, Pressley, Tlaib and Omar) denounced America’s treatment of minorities when it was that very system that enabled them to attain public office at the highest level.
Essentially, they hold on to the tenet of telling constituents to shut up and conform to the stereotype of their minority status so it can be exploited. Funny how the supposedly racist Trump has done more for black Americans in economic and employment terms before the pandemic than any Democrat preceding him.
Biden, Pressley and other like them behave like the very racists they condemn.
Biden later apologized on a call with the Black Chamber of Commerce, “I should not have been so cavalier. I’ve never, never, ever taken the African-American community for granted…I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy.”
