Black Entertainment TV Founder Says Biden Should Spend The Rest Of Campaign Apologizing

Black Entertainment Television (BET) co-founder Robert Johnson condemned former Vice President Joe Biden following comments from the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Friday claiming that if black voters are still undecided, then they aren’t black.

“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden said on “The Breakfast Club” podcast.

“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,” Johnson said in a statement to Fox News. “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.”

BET is the largest cable network dedicated to a black audience.

Biden’s remarks also drew swift condemnation from conservatives shaming the comments as offensive.

South Carolina Republican Sen. Tim Scott chastised Biden’s words as “the most arrogant, outrageous comment that I’ve heard in a very long time,” but also said he was unsurprised, given Biden’s hand in crafting the 1994 crime bill as a Delaware senator leading the Judiciary Committee.

Biden, Scott said, sponsored the legislation that “jailed more African-American males than any other legislation.”

“And President Trump comes along, and through his criminal justice reform, corrects the absolute mistakes made by Joe Biden; 1.3 million African-Americans voted for Trump. He’s saying to 1.3 million African-Americans that you are not black? Who in the heck does he think he is?”

Former Utah Republican Congresswoman Mia Love, who now works as a CNN political commentator, also issued a sharp rebuke over Biden’s comments, labeling them as “racist.”

“It’s incredibly offensive to hear this kind of rhetoric from anyone, let alone the presumptive nominee of the Democrat party,” Love wrote on Twitter. “Joe Biden’s comments were racist and an affront to the millions of African Americans who voted Republican in 2016.

Some Democrats, however, came to Biden’s defense, while others claimed the former vice president was just making a “joke.”

This article was sourced from TheFederalistpapers

Joe Biden really stepped in it today. He basically said to a black man who was interviewing him that if you didn’t vote for him, you’re not really black.

Then the co-founder of the BET slammed him for his “arrogant and out of touch attitude.”

First take a look at Joe’s latest incredibly racist claim:

Biden said “”If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” The host, Charlemagne tha God replied “It don’t have nothing to do with Trump, it has to do with the fact — I want something for my community.”

Can you imagine the 24/7 outrage that would ensue if President Trump ever said anything like that?

But of course Joe Biden get a pass, even though the clip makes it clear he’s a throw down racist.

First Sen. Tim Scott blasted Biden followed by Robert L. Johnson the founder of Black Entertainment Television (BET) who told Fox News:

“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 has to hurt!
