With Joe Biden now being the assumed nominee for the Democratic Party, undoubtedly, some within the party are disappointed. Most notably are those who planned to vote for Bernie Sanders, as he was Biden’s closest rival. However, for many, they aren’t just upset that their candidate didn’t make it, they are troubled that Biden did.
You see, as much as the Democrats spout off about Trump being racist and all that, most black Americans know that Biden is as well. He just might not be as “overt,” as radio host Charlamagne Tha God says, as Trump is about it. Then again, some of his more recent “gaffes” could prove otherwise.
In fact, some have even recently compared voting for Biden to eating a bowl of feces.
Yep, that right.
For former Bernie Sanders’ campaign co-chair Nina Turner, voting for Biden will be just that: eating a “bowl of s***.”
In a recent interview with the Atlantic, Turner was asked about her feelings towards voting for Biden in the upcoming general election. And her response was rather crappy…
She said, “It’s like saying to somebody, ‘You have a bowl of s*** in front of you, and all you’ve got to do is eat half of it instead of the whole thing.’ It’s still s***.”
Apparently, the situation 2020 has handed them in either voting for a Republican (eating the whole bowl) or choosing Biden (just eating half of it) isn’t very appealing to her.
And this isn’t the first time she has criticized Biden.
Back in January, you know when her preferred candidate was still in the presidential race, she said that Biden has “repeatedly betrayed black voters.” Of course, she was trying to take votes away from Biden and give them to Sanders at the time, but she said it nonetheless. In fact, she even allowed a newspaper from South Carolina, The State, to write an op-ed piece about it.
In the piece, Turner went on to describe how much of his past work in the senate was based on racist ideology and actually served to hurt the black communities of America rather than help them.
She said, “Biden didn’t just vote for bills designed to prevent black students from accessing white schools: in a series of personal letters he actively courted pro-segregation senators to support the legislation.”
Turner, in this instance, is referring to Biden’s outspoken opposition to forced desegregation for busing, something he has been criticized about before, most notably from former presidential candidate and now VP shortlist candidate Senator Kamala Harris during the Democratic debates.
However, this isn’t the only legislation that Biden has notably worked hard for that has led to the further detriment of those other than Caucasian. Take his work on the infamous 1994 crime bill. It is thought to be the reason why most of America’s prisons are full of more black men and women than any other race.
And as several critics have noted, it’s not just his legislation that proves his racist tendencies.
Take little sayings he has made here and there during his campaign.
There is that time he said that “poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids,” seemingly implying that only non-white kids can be poor.
And of course, there is the more recent conversation Biden had with Charlamagne Tha God, in which he told the radio show host that if he couldn’t figure out how he should vote for in November, “you ain’t black.”
I mean, it doesn’t get any more racist or arrogant than that.
As recently added presidential candidate and musician Kanye West says, to assume that black people vote as a whole and always democratic is racist in and of itself.
Here we are in a time and place when identity politics supposedly means everything to the progressive left. And their candidate is choosing to use stereotypes, placing all of one race into one voting block?
It’s no wonder black Americans are leaving the Democratic en masse. Some are even choosing to vote for Trump.
Turner, obviously isn’t quite there yet, as Biden is only half a bowl of crap still. However, he’s still crap.
