A skeptical young black voter asked Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Thursday for some substance behind the swagger of Biden’s attitude toward black voters.
In May, the former vice president told host Charlamagne Tha God on “The Breakfast Club” that there should be no question that black voters will support him.
“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden said then.
In a humiliating reminder that gaffes never die, those words were thrown in Biden’s face Thursday by Cedric Humphrey, a student from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, who asked a question at Biden’s ABC News town hall event in Philadelphia.
“Many people believe that the true swing demographic in this election will be black voters under the age 30 — not because they’ll be voting for Trump, but because they won’t vote at all,” said Humphrey, who was identified as a “progressive Democrat.”
