Why Did Blacks Overwhelmingly Vote For Biden?
J Marsolo 6/5/2021 2:04 PM
We continue to ask why people voted for Joe Biden. Why especially, did blacks overwhelmingly vote for him given his repeated derogatory statements about blacks. Such statements would surely and vigorously be attacked as racist if a Republican said them. Of course, many whites voted for Biden. As Leftists in good standing, they also should have been equally offended by Biden’s comments about blacks. However, the focus here is why blacks overwhelmingly voted for Biden.
I am not accusing Biden of racism in the sense that he discriminated against blacks in hiring or firing employees, or selling or renting a house, or public accommodation in a business. Of course, Biden has never run a private business since he has been on the public dime his entire working life and used it to enrich himself and his family. So, Biden never had to opportunity to discriminate as a private employer. In his business dealings using his public office Biden did not discriminate. He took money from Chinese, Ukrainians, Russians, and anyone else who offered. He was an equal opportunity grifter.
Biden’s statements about blacks show that he does not believe that blacks are smart or competent enough compared to whites.
For example, he said about Obama:
“I mean, you've got the first sort of mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a story-book man.”
This implies that he is surprised that Obama is “clean, bright, and articulate” because Obama is black. Biden did not say this about white politicians. Why aren’t more blacks offended that Biden thinks they are not “clean, bright, and articulate?”
Next, Biden said to Charlemagne the God:
"Well, I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black."
Why aren’t more blacks offended that Biden defines what it means to be black in voting? This implies blacks are not smart enough to decide who to vote for and must always vote for the Democrat.
Biden also said:
“We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids…”
Recently Biden expounded on his views about blacks and economics:
“The data shows young black entrepreneurs are just as capable of succeeding, given the chance, as white entrepreneurs are, but they don’t have lawyers, they don’t have accountants, but they have great ideas,”
Biden did not cite the data to support his statement that black entrepreneurs don’t have lawyers and accountants, or why. Biden implies these entrepreneurs are not smart enough to hire a lawyer and accountant, even though they are smart enough to have great ideas. Or Biden may be saying that lawyers and accountants will not represent blacks.
This must come as shock to the millions of lawyers and accountants who will represent clients regardless of skin color. The only color that lawyers and accountants care about is GREEN, not black or white. Moreover, many lawyers and accountants discount their fees or delay billing with start-up businesses that look promising in the hope of representing a business that will continually need legal and accounting work.
Kamala Harris, at the first Democratic presidential debate in June 2019, said Biden had spoken favorably of segregationist senators like Robert Byrd, and worked with them to oppose integration of schools through busing.
Harris cleverly said that she was not calling Biden a racist but the clear conclusion and import of what she accused Biden of is that Biden is a racist. She called him a racist without calling him a racist.
Biden attacked the Georgia election reform law that requires voter ID for mail-in ballots and prohibits giving water and food to voters in line to vote as Jim Crow.
“If you want any indication that it has nothing to do with fairness, nothing to do with decency, they pass a law saying you can't provide water for people standing in line while they're waiting to vote," the president said. "You don't need anything else to know that this is nothing but punitive, designed to keep people from voting. You can't provide water for people about to vote. Give me a break."
The law does not prohibit bringing you own water or food. Biden’s statement shows he believes blacks are not smart enough to bring a bottle of water and maybe a snack if they believe there may be a wait at the voting line.
Biden said to a group of mostly black supporters about Romney “He's going to let the big banks once again write their own rules - unchain Wall Street! They're going to put you all back in chains"
This shows that Biden will say anything to get a vote, and assumes that blacks are dumb enough to believe that they will be put back in chains.
There are many other such statements. Biden makes them, then apologizes when his aides explain to him what he said.
Biden keeps making these statement which show his attitude and opinion of blacks. He views blacks as inferior, and condescends in speaking to them by saying outrageous remarks.
Blacks have voted Democrat because of the policies of FDR, JFK, and LBJ. But times have changed.
The 1964 Civil Rights Act passed because Republican senators voted for it while Biden’s segregationist pals like William Fulbright and Sam Ervin, and KKK member Robert Byrd voted against it. The vote for the Act was 27 Republicans for, 7 against; 46 Democrats for, 21 against.
And Biden is no JFK.
