May 22, 2020 - Biden Talks about a Black Woman Running Mate and Support from Black Voters on “The Breakfast Club”

In an interview on The Breakfast Club, Biden responds to reports that his team is vetting candidates to be his running mate and hopes that he will choose a Black woman. He says, “I am not acknowledging anybody who is being considered, but I guarantee there are multiple Black women being considered.” Biden also makes news for saying, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black.” While he later walked back his comment and emphasized that he would not take the Black vote for granted, the comment heightened fears about Biden’s racial awareness and sincerity that were already rooted in Biden’s legislative record.
