Joe Biden Makes Controversial 'You Ain’t Black’ Statement During Charlamagne Tha God Interview

Former vice president Joe Biden sparked controversy in an interview with Charlamagne Tha God on “The Breakfast Club” today. The interview which was pre-recorded for airplay, ended with Biden making a comment that he later apologized for where he said, "If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black."

Charlamagne has been calling for the Biden campaign to make the former Vice President available throughout this election season. Virtually all of Biden's former democratic opponents have appeared on the morning show. He finally got an opportunity to do an interview with the presumptive nominee on The Breakfast Club.

In a rushed eighteen minute interview that was interrupted by a Biden staffer twice, ended when Charlamagne commented, "It don't have nothing to do with Trump. It has to do with the fact I want something for my community." Biden responded, "Take a look at my record, man."

Overall, many topics that might have been covered were not covered. Not much was gained from the interview other than the controversy that was generated from the statement. Charlamagne invited Biden to appear on the program in the future, perhaps during a visit to New York City.

The full interview is above.

Updated: Charlamagne responded to the Biden's comment on CNN with anchor Erin Burnett.

• WLBT anchor and meteorologist Barbie Bassett is no longer with the Jackson, Miss., NBC station after racially insensitive comments. In early March, Bassett was speaking with her fellow anchors on air about Snoop Dogg’s latest business venture, Snoop Cali Blanc, a new wine in his wine label. In response to a comment about putting a Snoop Dogg tattoo on her shoulder, Bassett said, “Fo shizzle, my nizzle.” Bassett is white. Charlamagne tha God defended Bassett as he discussed the situation on The Breakfast Club. “She might be old. She probably has no idea nizzle is a derivative of the N-word. That’s not a fireable offense. I hope she sues.”
