Towards the end of an interview Friday morning, host Charlamagne Tha God asked about Biden choosing a black woman as his running mate. After his answer, an aide can be heard telling Biden: "That’s really our time. I apologize."
"You can’t do that to black media!" replied Charlamagne.
"I gotta do that to white media and black media because my wife has to go on at six o’clock," Biden said. "Uh no, I’m in trouble."
This morning @Cthagod sat down with Democratic Presidential Nominee @JoeBiden to talk about a few things including his plan for African American communities in America, if he will be choosing a black female running mate + more!🇺🇸— The Breakfast Club (@breakfastclubam) May 22, 2020

"Listen, you gotta come see us when you come to New York, VP Biden, because it’s a long way until November and we got more questions," Charlamagne said.
"You got more questions? Well I’ll tell you, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black," Biden shouted.
"It doesn’t have nothing to do with Trump," the radio host replied. "It has to do with the fact I want something for my community."
"Take a look at my record, man. I extended the voting rights 25 years, I have a record that is second to none. The NAACP has endorsed me every time I've run. Come on, look at the record."
The end of Jim Crow Joe's interview statement was not In Jest; it was an "Insult" to black people who choose to think for themselves!#SayNoToJimCrowJoe#YouAintBlack #BeJoeBiden#Charlamagne#AfricanAmericans#BreakfastClub https://t.co/xeH7gZynlb— Diamond and Silk® (@DiamondandSilk) May 22, 2020
A former Sanders surrogate replied:
Yo @JoeBiden would you sit in front of the millions of black people that you help lock up for long periods of time by writing the crime bill that they aren’t black if they don’t vote for you? That line was rehearsed and way outta line! #YouAintBlack is basically #YouStupid— Ja'Mal Green (@JaymalGreen) May 22, 2020
