OFFICIAL Biden thread, since it looks like he's getting in

Recommended Posts

 

The post reporter writing this is black btw - 

 

"After the staffer’s second try, Charlamagne said, “You can’t do that to black media.” He said it leaning into the camera as Biden said, “I gotta do that to white media and black media because my wife has to go on at 6 o’clock.” Glancing at his watch, Biden said, “Uh oh! I’m in trouble.” Charlamagne laughs and asks that Biden come see the Breakfast Club crew in New York because November is a long way off and they have a lot more questions. “You got more questions, but I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden said with a smile on his face.

 

When heard in the context of the previous 17 minutes and 21 seconds, you know that Biden is joking around. Perhaps he got a little too comfortable talking to a community with which he has a strong relationship that spans decades. Add to that being the vice president to the nation’s first black president and you know his affinity with black folks runs deep."

 

Also, only the willfully obtuse could not see that Biden was nodding at the belief among an overwhelming majority of African Americans that President Trump and his policies are detrimental to the health, safety and well-being of the black community. Saying someone “you ain’t black” in this context is the equivalent of questioning my blackness back in March because I hadn’t seen the 1990 movie “House Party.” It’s more of an exasperated “Where’ve you been?!” as opposed to “You’ve been voted off the island.”

Are they that different? 

No, because both come from an old wealthy white man. I don’t really know to be honest. Race is a weird thing when it comes to discussion. If Biden was Buttigieg would it have been less or more racist? If Trump wasn’t a retard would it have been less or more racist? It’s an interesting thing to note and ponder. As for how they’re categorized I would say they’re equally tone deaf and categorically racist.
 

As for intent, yes they’re vastly different. I base that on my beliefs of the two men and their respective Ethos. Biden’s internal reasoning for saying that, regardless of outcome or how it is compared, is a lot different than Trump’s.

I’m sure because this won’t really hurt Biden much people will say it doesn’t matter, but what a disgusting unforced error. 
 

 

The quotes following that tweet are pretty alabaster

The common thread with Biden is that he seems to be a stubborn old man who doesn’t realize that he gets overly familiar with people. 
 

Seems similar to the weird touching of women and children that made them uncomfortable. It doesn’t seem sexual but I think at the least it made people uncomfortable. 

 

I don’t think he’s a racist or a molester. Lol

 

But he seems to get overly familiar people and overstep boundaries. It doesn’t seem to be enough to cost him votes right now but it seems obvious that it’s at least not ideal. 
 

Even the polling suggested more people believed the Reade story than disbelieved it but that it wouldn’t effect their votes. That should be crazy!
 

This is a special moment in time where people are making exceptions for things that normally would make people want someone else.

This is definitely true. Good take. 
 

Im hoping unlike his apology to the ladies, which was necessary, that he just takes the L internally on this one. I appreciate the fact he is willing to see a flaw and change. If he he apologizes to black people for the statement it’s going to create a shitstorm 😆

I’m not a fan of diametric thought processes, but think of Biden apologizing about his statement because he realizes it was tasteless and categorically a racist statement versus Trump’s response. One person realizes inherent flaws while the other refuses to do so. 
 

ETA: then think about how that inherently plays into the structure of power achieved versus power derived from power handed. And then think of who you want as a leader, because at the end of it these are our only two options at the moment. 
 

Im not saying to think of it like a gun to the head. I’m saying we have an imperfect system, and personally I am willing to forgive someone for a mistake if they are willing to own up to it, be it explicitly or internally.

He'd be better off just saying "STFU PC clowns" on this. 

 

He was clearly kidding. 

 

I took it that he's bragging, in a jokingly way, that he has a great relationship with the black community.   Nothing more.  How could that comment be taken as insulting?  So odd, this world we live in.

Hey man, it's just Joe being Joe.

Put him back in the basement where he doesnt have to talk to people.

 

It's easy to see if you challenge Joe on anything he is going to go off script and say something racist or stupid.

This is also true about Trump, except he’ll say it with malice.
