Video: Show Host Gives a Reminder of Biden’s Racist History

It’s not very often that someone as much in the limelight as presidential candidate Joe Biden says something as blatantly racist as he did last week and can get away with it. But that is precisely what he has done, at least for the most part.

On May 26, the former vice president appeared on radio host Charlamagne Tha God’s show “The Breakfast Club,” where it didn’t take long for Biden to make yet another horrible error is speech. Charlamagne, who has no shame about being a progressive liberal, admitted that he, like many Americans, are still on the fence about choosing Biden as their president.

Biden’s reply was if that, as a black American, “you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me for Trump, you ain’t black.”

Obviously, the comment did not go over all that well, causing Biden to receive plenty of criticism over the matter. Biden and his campaign staff were quick to say that he was joking, hoping that it would all blow over. But then later, during an appearance of CNN with Don Lemon, Biden actually apologized, while at the same time blamed Charlamagne for the comment.

He said, “I apologized immediately for responding to Charlamagne, who was baiting me, and if you looked at that film, you’ll see I was smiling at him.” Biden goes on to explain that he was speaking directly to Charlamagne and that the comment was never meant for “all African Americans.”

However, this half-hearted apology and one that further tries to the point the finger elsewhere has does little to convince those like Charlamagne that Biden should be their leader.

And Charlamagne actually said this recently, claiming that he needs to see “some action” from Biden to further form an opinion.

He was talking to CNN on Tuesday, giving his impression of Biden’s speeches in Philadelphia earlier that day. Charlamagne remarked that while he like what he had heard from Biden, “I need some action, like, I need him to really lean into blackness now.”

He went on to describe the former VP as being the Lyndon B. Johnson to Obama’s JFK.

“To me, it’s like this: If Barack Obama was JFK, then Joe Biden needs to be Lyndon B. Johnson. You know he has the opportunity to be as progressive as Lyndon B. Johnson. Lyndon B. Johnson may have been labeled a racist, but his record doesn’t reflect that. LBJ’s record showed that he had, like, the most effective progressive record on race and class of any Democratic president of the past 80 years.”

And Charlamagne definitely has a point there. LBJ, on a personal level, is regarded as one of America’s most racist presidents, in part for saying things like, “I’ll have those n**gers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” However, when it came to policy and legislation, some of the most liberating civil rights movements came about during his time in office.

And when it comes to Biden, Charlamagne thinks he can do similarly.

“I think, you know, Biden’s record in the Senate actually reflects very racist legislation, but he has the chance to correct that by doing right by black people.”

Now obviously, “doing right by black people” doesn’t include insulting them on national television and insinuating that if you don’t vote for him, you are somehow not black.

Nor does it mean that you can say things like “poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids.” However, as Charlamagne seems to suggest, words don’t really mean much. Instead, it’s all about action. And if he can take action and “lean into blackness,” he might have a shot at this.

Then again, we also have Charlamagne saying on record that he doesn’t “understand the hype behind Joe Biden” and that “to quote Tupac, when I see Joe Biden, I’m like, ‘Yo, you really ain’t sh- without your homeboy.”

What he is saying is that the party isn’t even voting for Biden. They are voting for Obama’s legacy.

Just like LBJ, Biden would have never made it to the White House without “his boss.” Yes, he might be liked because of his allegiance to Obama, which is why LBJ was elected to a second term. But unlike LBJ, Biden’s predecessor wasn’t tragically killed.

Obama is still out there living his legacy. And as much as Biden and his supporters might want to say it, he is on his own. And as Charlamagne suggests, that isn’t enough.

  1. Nancy Pelosi is a TRAITOR to the American People!
    The Constitution defines, “Treason against the US.. ..adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” Illegal aliens are enemies that invade our country with drugs, human trafficking, and terrorist causing death and crime to American citizens. Nancy Pelosi adheres to these enemies by voting for and providing them aid and comfort through Sanctuary policies funded by US citizen tax dollars, and refuses to protect American people by refusing to fund our border wall, leaving our borders open and unsafe. Pelosi refused to meet with Angel families, caused the government shut down then traveled on US dollars to Hawaii and Puerto Rico while 800,000 Fed workers don’t get paid, and uninvited Trump for SOTU. IMPEACH Pelosi for treason!

  2. Joey gave he eulogy for the grand wizard of the KKK himself former senator for a long time Robert Byrd. Didn’t seem to matter to anyone then that the US Senate had a card carrying klansman in its ranks. Thats why I am saying that all of this today is Liberal bullshit. The snowflakes and the participation crowd is trying to take over the country and run it like a bunch of pansies Wake up you pussies it won’t work this is a tough world we live in and it is going to take someone stronger than a guy who can’t make it out of his own basement to run it, Trump 2020

  3. Two consecutive elections and once again the Dems pick a candidate who’s corrupt, a liar, someone who has enriched themself illegally by using their power to do so… and in this case, their candidate can’t finish a thought either. Pick
    Kamala Harris for VP you freakin numbskull!! That should make you and your ilk happy. Once you’re gone Joe, she should be able to ( like Obama) bring this country to its knees again.
    Thank You GOD ALMIGHTY for intervening and saving our country in 2016.
    We all need to pray for Trumps return to the White House in 2020. It’s our ONLY chance to survive at least 4 more years.
    To you lifelong Dems….. wake up people and stop watching news that isn’t, ok?!!!! I was a dem for my entire life…. then Hillary happened. I’ll not vote for anyone with a “D” behind their name ever again. I feel not only stupid, but totally ignorant that I didn’t know what and who the Democrats really are for so long… at least I’m aware of their “fuck the people” attitude now
    TRUMP 2020

  4. When checking statistics, I found that more black people were killed by police under Obama.
    And when I checked the cities where it happened: Of 20 Black Lives Killed 18 were killed in DEM ruled cities!
    And DEM governors or mayors also means DEM police!

  5. They misplaced my comments:
    they should go for comment -then, answer 1
    and THIS ONE above here IS CORRECT.

  6. That is the same sort of dangerous sh.. !
    It’s brainless stuff like that which causes harm.

  7. That is dangerous sh.. !
    It’s brainless stuff like that which causes harm.

  8. Ah mannn? Geez Come on mannnn I`m cool I`ve got lots of nigg— black friends. Come on- come on mannn! Corn pop was a bad dude.

  9. You obviously have not read up the records of NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo, or the Governors of PA & NJ who followed Cuomo’s idiotic lead in the treatment of Coronavirus patients. Their action of forcing infected people into ill equipped nursing homes lead to the death of thousands. I don’t know where you find your facts but you obviously need a new source.

  10. Fake news. Conspiracy theories

  11. Great honest post. Thank you

  12. The k k k was formed 160 years ago. Lets talk about the racists in todays world. Trump and his father were racist their whole lives

  13. Maybe what’s “plain to see” is that you are blinded by ignorant hate! Trump isn’t the most “gentile” person on twitter but if I, or even Obama had to deal with what Trump has had to deal with at the hands of Obama operatives like Comey and his gang of cowards such as Brennan, Clapper, Pelosi, Schumer, Maxine”DOGFACE” or ANY Democrat that has existed for the last 5 years in Washington, they would have gotten NOTHING done in Washington. There isn’t one instance that the left can point to that would be proof of “RACISM” that is a tag he carries with no basis in fact. I only hope that somehow we can rid the government of those who think they can be subversive of an incoming elected President, Republican OR Democrat. What we have had to witness this last 3 1/2 years from the left is shameful!!

  14. Frankly, when someone posts something so idiotic as the first post on this page, first. It is readily apparent that the poster is ignorant. Second, I think anyone who posts something SO ignorant, is just trolling, I would be surprised if the person is a conservative because, that’s just not something an intelligent conservative OR liberal would post. Whoever posted that should be just taken out back and shot, and that is coming from a conservative who believes we ALL need to respect other human beings regardless of race! If people TRULY want to be treated equal then they need to also treat others with respect. The one thing that aggravates me most with these social posts is the BALLS people have when they can hide behind anonymity! I just wish people would think about the people they are hurting in their own neighborhoods, when they riot and loot.

  15. you sound like a true blue left wing hate monger, liberals attack people who is doing the looting? demorats funded by that nazi George Soros!

  16. he said 200 years!

  17. its the media stupid!! They are part of the divide and conquer mentality! they are demorats!

  18. You are full of shit. Which party formed the KKK you moron? In case you are completely ignorant,it was the Democrats.
    Until the slogan becomes “All Lives Matter “ this country will be very divided.
    If the Black population want the White population to support their plight, they need to pick respectable people not lifelong criminals or individuals that are breaking the law.
    Try someone like Tiger Woods or Ben Carson or Oprah.

  19. He and the loser turn my stomach……….. his wife looks petrified/terrified every time she is standing near him and he opens his mouth……..

  20. And you are the biggest ASS. HOLE on this website

  21. Did you all forget about trump’s 19 different women accusing him of sexual misconduct. And having sex with a PORN STAR while his wife was having their son

  22. Biden’s no LBJ. Obama’s still breathing.

  23. He hasn’t told 18500 lies like trump has told. You fools should never call anyone else a Lier when you’re lord and master has told that many

  24. Trump should get down on his knees and beg forgiveness for his incompetent handling of the Coronavirus

  25. Well it’s plain to see incompetent trump doesn’t have what it takes

  26. GOOD RIDDANCE. Take the rest of the racist republicans with you

  27. Oh really. Read the first post on this page. Than tell me it’s the dems. You people have been trying to pin racism on the dems when in reality it’s the Republicans and has been for decades. Quite trying to pull the same BULL SHIT trump pulls

  28. You are nothing more than a white trash racist prick. Its people like you and trump and Steven miller that separating and destroying America.


  30. Praise GOD!!!

  31. Biden is a low life, corrupt, lying, ass kissing creepy pedophile, RACIST piece of human feces.
    The same can be said for the entire Democratic Party ….. save for the pedophile part…… I’m hoping they’re not all like creepy Joe. He can’t tell his wife and daughter apart. He can’t finish a simple sentence. He can’t tell anymore when he’s saying racist things to people. Everything that he says out his butt is hurtful, controversial, and at this time of out lives, questionable and downright stupid. “C’mon Man”… am I the only one who can’t stand when that phrase comes out of his denture free orifice. Here’s a man who believes he’ll soon run this country. Realistic to believe that he believes all that comes out of his reprobate mouth.
    BACK TO THE BASEMENT Joe!! You need to reassess just what and who the hell it is you are. Did you and Hunter make enough money by extorting Ukraine…. was it enjoyable trying to rape Tara?!!!!…..and why in the name of all things sacred are you still NOT having to answer for that one?!!! Being a leading Democrat in this country means one thing……
    You can do whatever the hell it is you want to do and in the long run it’ll be alright because the Obama’s, the Clintons, the Pelosis’, Shumers’, Nadlers, Schiffs…… they’ll all have your back. We all know that this is exactly how these shit birds do business. The Democratic Party should be called the “Fuck the People” party because that’s all they do is screw with the American people who love this country. Trump had this nation in a place of prosperity and growth like none of us had ever seen!! And the best part of that scenario was that DJT actually loves this country and the people in it. Obama and his whole little nasty ass cabal need to be jailed for treason, obstruction, lying, coercion, …. the adjectives are endless, I could go on for minutes. What these “people” did to Trump is reprehensible.
    I’d rather be a Deplorable any day tan a DISPICABLE!! The Democratic Party is the party of communistic convicts… to hell with the lot of you!!

  32. Biden is a pedophile and a womanizer. Wake up America

  33. Well stated…thank you!
    President Trump does not deserve what the liberals, the left and Democrats have done to him or his family. It’s so far out of line.
    He has my vote for sure in 2020! God Bless him and keep him healthy for years to come while serving us.

  34. Biden has got you snowballed. He lies, Biden will say anything to get your VOTE. You need to look at his record as VP. He is full of lies.

  35. And as President of the United States of America I, Joseph Biden, will get down on my knees and grovel and ask forgiveness from all Blacks whether they are in prison for life or selling drugs to my grandchildren and three concubines.

  36. Biden is grasping a straws, trying to hit the black population now, kisses ass for votes! And like the rest of the democrat’s, Id like to see what you would have done different during this hard time. Does Biden really have what it takes?

  37. if most of the people in my country cant see thru the bullshit to what is,than it is already to late for us
    if trump looses this year i will leave my beloved country never to return..when did americans become so stupid and hurts my heart to see my fellow countrymen acting like scared sheep heading to the slaughter shoot..we used to be strong and fearless..what happened

  38. President Donald Trump!
    Has done his best too keep America
    on track and in first place in the
    World at large! He is not responsible for the actions of others who disrespect America in
    it’s values! He is not a racist !
    He a great President! The Black Floyd was a victim of Police Brutality for sure! He wasn’t innocent him self he had a record!
    We should talk in general about
    about People getting along ! Especially black people and police!
    We should not be fighting over
    one issue! Instead we should stop
    these evil Antifa and exstremist
    and Other groups that are extremist! Put them in jail for there
    acts of violence towards other people who dis agree with them
    and for there looting starting fires
    breaking windows and in many
    cases area wear many underprivileged people of color live! These are not people we want
    in our Country! Peaceful Protestors
    And protest is the America way!
    The rest can go too prison if they
    act in such a Violence way.

  39. Whether Biden is or is not a racist is irrelevant, because Biden himself is irrelevant. He will NEVER be president. Never. Period.

    And while leftists argue racism, it’s a fact that our great president, Donald Trump, has worked tirelessly to create jobs and improve living standards for blacks as well as whites throughout his presidency. Yet leftists continually and falsely harp in the Fake News Media that Trump is a racist.

    It was Democrats who fought a civil war to preserve States rights and their right to continue using slavery for commercial interests, created the violent negro-hating KKK, brought in Jim Crow laws to hurt blacks and keep them subjugated and impoverished, lynched them, and oppressed them for centuries. Yet Democrats now audaciously accuse Republican President Trump of racism.

    Also, anti-America, New World Order Socialist George Soros is lurking somewhere in the shadows of all the current unrest. He has to be pleased with all this bickering and rioting over racism, and with the anti-police, anti-business, pro-looters insanity that’s risen like an evil genie in Democrat-ruled states and cities across America. Divide and conquer is one of Soros’s favored tactics, and his money funds a lot of the current racial and anti-police unrest that we’re witnessing in this ELECTION year. Soros funds Antifa, despises America, and schemes daily to bring about it’s destruction.

    Trump 2020!
    God save America.

  40. When Lyndon B. Johnson pushed The Great Society on the U.S.A. ,he.said ” I’ll have them Negra s
    voting Democrat for the next 50 years . I think that time is over !!
    And it only cost us 18 Trillion dollars, the Poverty Rate is about
    the same as 1968.

  41. The real racists are the Democrats! They hate people. And if they are white they prostrate themselves with guilt and remorse over events that they had absolutely no control over! So basically stupidity is their campaign guideline.

  42. Who is going to remind Charlemagne that he is a racist?

  43. BLM = Butthole Licking Motherfuckers

    Antifa = Another Nigger Total Idiot Fucking Asshole
