Radio host Charlamagne tha God is pushing back one day after former Vice President Joe Biden said on his show “The Breakfast Club” that African-American voters “ain’t black” if they can’t decide whether to vote for him or incumbent President Trump.
“I see black communities all across America catching hell regardless of who is in the White House,” the radio host told The Hill on Saturday. “Because we have a bunch of underlying conditions created by systemic racism that have never been fixed.”
“The whole system needs to be dismantled and rebuilt, and he’s been a very intricate part of that system,” Charlamagne tha God — whose name is Lenard Larry McKelvey — said of Biden.
“My take away from the conversation was, I heard him talking about things that he did for black people back in the day. But you know, ‘What have you done for me lately?’ is my motto,” Charlamagne tha God said.
During the interview, which aired Friday, a Biden aide tried to end the interview and the radio host asked the former vice president to come back on the show. “It’s a long way to November. We’ve got more questions,” he said.
