Biden Sorry For “You Ain’t Black” Comment: I Shouldn’t Have Been “Such A Wise Guy” And So Cavalier [VIDEO]

The New York Times reports:

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, apologized Friday afternoon for telling a radio host that black voters torn between voting for him and President Trump “ain’t black,” remarks that ignited a firestorm online. “I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy,” Mr. Biden said in a call the U.S. Black Chambers, later saying that he had not expected to join the call. “I shouldn’t have been so cavalier.”

His remarks came hours after a testy exchange with Charlamagne Tha God, a host on “The Breakfast Club,” a nationally syndicated morning show popular with black millennials, that has dominated the conversation online. In the interview, during which the former vice president sidestepped a question about marijuana legalization and his running mate selection, Mr. Biden also made clear that he felt there was no reason black Americans would consider voting for Mr. Trump.
