Former Bernie Sanders campaign co-chair Nina Turner on Friday blasted Joe Biden over the comments -- which he later walked back -- about black voters choosing between him and President Trump in November's election.
Earlier in the day, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee raised eyebrows during an interview with Charlamagne tha God on the radio show "The Breakfast Club" as he defended his record with the black community.
I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether youre for me or Trump, then you aint black, Biden said.
Turner offered a blistering response to the progressive media outlet Status Coup.
"Pure unadulterated hubris, the taking for granted of the black vote, the insult to us as he tried to quote on quote answer that question in a black vernacular," Turner said. "What other racial or ethnic group in this country has to deal with that kind of foolishness? Not one ... where all of a sudden you change your speech pattern to answer the question too? Too many white politicians have a habit of thinking if they change their speech pattern they're really relating to the black community.
She added, "As I said all along, the black vote must be earned; it is not owned, it is earned. For any white person to think that they are the authority on what is and what is not black is the highest insult."

Biden is really going to be ‘Hidin.’
Naw...like an abused spouse, Blacks will vote for the dems and Biden despite the fact that Trump has done more for them than Obama or Biden.
These folks are just upset that the drooling idiot said it out loud for all of the world to hear.
The know what he said is true, for christ sakes, They act that way to ANY black person that wanders off the plantation.
They are a monolithic voting block, and it only goes one way, so deal with it folks, Biden and the dems OWN you.
Of course they will, but its the “enthusiasm gap” that is at stake. Can he get them to turn out?
Or many will now sit it out.
So is Sanders now going to borrow some of Gov. Northam’s blackface and go out preachin’ to the black folks?
Socialist government check to you every week of the year paid for by the rich.
Sounds great, Bernie. Where do I vote?
There can be those who just flat out decide to sit it out, and then those who may not do this, but rather go back and forth on whether to vote, and end up not being too enthused to bother to vote.
There’s a shoot-out on the Plantation.
Bernie is out. Unfortunately for Biden though, this is all his to deal with now.
Even if this comment was a joke, which it wasnt, would that change the significance of what he was saying? At all? No.
Joke Biden enjoys Objectifying Good People...
I am 100% sure you are right. I sometimes listen to the all black am talk radio station for Detroit.
One guy said Trump needs to be locked up or executed for "causing" the deaths of people who swallow fish tank tablets as a Trump endorsed cure for Covid.
Talk host said she would never, never, ever under any possible circumstance vote for Donald Trump.
That line has been said by their phone callers and I heard a couple of people say it at a restaurant in January before Whitmer shut them down.
“Earned...” With my money, my schools, my neighborhoods, my hospitals, my job....
Oh, I don't know about that.
"Where do ah git me uh huntin' license" Kerry might say different.
I’m starting to wonder. Is Biden on Trump’s payroll? I can’t believe that all these self-inflicted wounds are free of charge. Biden has to be getting paid for this.
