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."

Slow Joe is the same guy that said that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan were going to put Black Americans back in chains, And he threw in a Yall, to supposedly relate to his audience. Seriously, Mitt and Rino are slave drivers? Creepy Joe will say anything to get elected.
Where were these douches when antifa was bloodying black conservatives while cowardly cops stood by watching the fascisto-communist pact invasion obeying Portland or Seattle’s Beijing’s orders?
Joe’s gonna put cha all back in chains.
I would think so many historical points precisely prove why the DNC is no better than DNC circa Civil War era and beyond.
Biden handed Team Trump a cudgel to beat him with all the way to Election Day. Does it mean that blacks will turn out in droves to vote for Trump? No. But they’ll be presented with ‘two old white guys’, one of whom they’d never vote for as long as there is an (R) by his name, and the other of whom thinks blacks are plantation hands who should vote for him as a matter of preordination (oddly, it’s blacks who let themselves get painted into that corner). So, the black vote may just decide to stew about it and stay home Election Day. Biden’s Hail Mary to try to dig himself out of this may be to tout a black female running mate, and there ain’t a one in the current crop who wouldn’t make for good entertainment.
He said aint.
Met a black male Bernie supporter who plans on voting for Trump.
I figured they would just sit this one out but I guess some may go for Trump.
Its all good.
“Of course they will, but its the enthusiasm gap that is at stake. Can he get them to turn out?”
The polls will be doing their best to ramp up the “enthusiasm gap”, by having Biden up 90% to 10% ala Hillary2016. Reckon that’ll help?
You can bet that someone within "Slow Joe's" handler gang is pleading with Obunga to step forward and say, as a black man, "he was NOT offended" by Biden's rather "brilliant" remark.
In the meantime... the onset of early dementia continues to take its toll with "Slow Joe" as he unexpectedly drops another turd into the party punchbowl.
Gives me a little lift to my mood.
When you see him shake his hand for me, uh, no, give him a man hug, uh,no....Well keep strict social distancing but tip your red MAGA hat to him for me. Thanks.
