Town Hall Voter Jabs Biden: What Do You Have to Say To Black Voters Besides ‘You Ain’t Black?’

An undecided African-American voter at Thursday night’s town hall asked Joe Biden what his message is for young black voters “besides ‘you ain’t black.'”

The man was identified as Cedric Humphrey, a progressive Democrat.

“Besides ‘you ain’t Black,’ what do you have to say to young Black voters who see voting for you as further participation in a system that continually fails to protect them?” Humphrey said.

The subtle jab was in reference to Biden’s controversial comments in which he told radio host Charlamagne Tha God that anyone struggling to decide between him and President Trump in the general election “ain’t black.”

“I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black,” Biden said at the time.

Humphrey also noted during his questioning that millennials in the black community could be the ones who swing the election.

“Many people believe that the true swing demographic in this election will be Black voters under the age of 30,” he said.

“Not because they’ll be voting for Trump, but because they won’t vote at all.”

Biden struggled to focus with his response, engaging in a long meandering explanation of why black voters should show up for him.

The former Vice President launched into a lengthy monologue about racism and wealth inequality.

“It’s about accumulating wealth,” he replied at one point.

“And it’s very – you’re behind an eight ball. The vast majority of people of color are behind an eight ball.”

Biden encouraged young black voters to vote for him citing the words of civil rights icon John Lewis.

“As my buddy John Lewis said, it’s a sacred opportunity, the right to vote,” he explained. “You can make a difference.”

“If young Black women and men vote, you can determine the outcome of this election. Not a joke.”

Town Hall Question Shows Black Voters Still Skeptical

Humphrey’s question seems to indicate young black voters won’t soon forget Biden’s “you ain’t black” insult to those who don’t support him.

Perhaps they also recall past comments he’s made about how Republicans would put blacks “back in chains.”

Or perhaps, as demonstrated by this young man’s comments, they’re a little irked with being spoken down to.

Senator Tim Scott ripped Biden’s ‘you ain’t black’ statement as the “most arrogant, condescending” comments he’s ever heard.

Scott (R-SC) noted that Biden is “the man who sponsored and led the charge on the 1990s crime bill that jailed more African-American males than any other legislation.”

Robert Johnson, the founder of Black Entertainment Television, responded to the comments by blasting Democrats for thinking they “own” black people and that they “can take [them] for granted.”

Condoleezza Rice, former Secretary of State under President George W. Bush, weighed in on the topic shortly after Biden’s racially charged comments.

“You look at somebody who’s Black and you think you know what they think, or you at least think you know what they ought to think,” she said.

During this portion of the town hall, moderator George Stephanopoulus had to step in during Biden’s long-winded reply.

“Did you hear what you need to hear?” he asked the young man.

“Um, I think so,” Humphrey replied.

Not exactly a ringing endorsement.

  • I don’t think Joe answered the question with reality! The dems want the black vote to win. Then people of color will be ignored again, just look at Obama’s Chicago, and in three years the dems will send out more empty promises hoping that the black community has no memory of belie lied to, again.

    President Trump though has worked on getting better jobs, better pay, better schools, better housing and a future. Not once did he say, “vote for me cause I gave you people a bunch of stuff.” He’s going to continue bettering your lives, other peoples of color lives on through the next four years. Just think what he could of accomplished if the dems would of left him alone to run the country? Instead he constantly had to dodge fake news, fake lawsuits, and a fake impeachment. Then Chine sent us this virus and he has done everything in his power for ALL the people. All the while dems and RINOs throw crap at him.

  • God bless America!! Democrat Blacks are waking up! I even heard a Black say: "Even if Trump was the f- Devil himself, he is still doing all the right things. I will vote for him!!". There's something very special and very powerful about African-American bluntness when they have a direct meeting with the Truth. God bless America!!

  • Dems have always been racist they were the original party of the kkk look it up. They also voted against human rights everytime while republicans voted for rights for blacks and women. They want you to forget that, and remember hillary calling them super predators, The dems also had a high ranking kkk member a dem senator Robert Byrd in their ranks for like 30 years Hillary's mentor. They project what they are on others, an old Karl Marx tactic. Biden is a racist period.

  • biden is not trying to confuse you, he's trying to hide the fact that he is clueless about what he will do if he becomes President, other than move his family into the WH and scheme to make the Democrats more powerful

  • would not be the first time people were sent in to ask softball questions with pre addressed answers !!!!

  • I cannot believe theses statements are allowed to fly so far under media radar, every. time he is asked any questions about race or the black community, he gets ( if you can believe it) more stupid, tripping over every word that comes spilling out of his mouth more than normal. What has this man done in the past to this community, that sends the fear vibe into his confused brain, it has to be something terrible from his past, that is another thing that should bother the Democratic voters. Another liar for a candidate, Trumps not perfect. But think about it, he has been in the lime light most of his life. We knew his dirty laundry way before he ran for office. This guy (Biden)has been in office for 47 years. Nothing much accomplished, but a fat checkbook, with our money in it.
