Joe Biden’s racist history is coming back to haunt him in a huge way.
He may not be able to count on the black vote in the upcoming election.
Joe Biden got ten shocking words of warning from a historic civil-rights figure.
During an interview on “The Breakfast Club” in May, Biden said, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
Yet despite Biden’s claim that black voters will support him by default, many influential figures in the African American community say that Democrats are on the wrong side of history.
In 1960, Clarence Henderson was at the forefront of the civil rights movement and made history when he sat down at the segregated Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina, and refused to leave after he was denied service.
It was a brave act of peaceful protesting and Henderson knew that he was putting his own life in danger to stand up against segregation.
“My friends had been denied service the day before because of the color of their skin. We knew it wasn’t right,” Henderson said in a speech made at the Republican National Convention.
“But when we went back the next day, I didn’t know whether I was going to come out in a vertical or prone position, in handcuffs, or on a stretcher, or even in a body bag. By sitting down to order a cup of coffee, we challenged injustice. We knew it was necessary, but we didn’t know what would happen,” he continued.
Henderson made a subtle jab at Black Lives Matter when he noted how much positive change peaceful protests made during the civil rights movement.
“Our actions inspired similar protests throughout the South against racial injustice. In the end, segregation was abolished, and our country moved a step closer to true equality for all. That’s what actual peaceful protests can accomplish,” he said.
Henderson went on to note that it was the Republican Party that fought many battles to ensure that blacks were not denied their rights.
“It was the Republican Party that passed the 13th Amendment, abolishing slavery. It was the Republican Party that passed the 14th Amendment, giving black men citizenship. It was the Republican Party that passed the 15th Amendment, giving black men the right to vote. Freedom of thought is a powerful thing. [There are] Americans, voters all over the country, who [the] media is trying to convince to conform to the same old Democratic talking points. You know what that will get you? The same old results. Joe Biden had the audacity to say if you don’t vote for him, you ain’t black. To that, I say, if you do vote for Biden, you don’t know history.”
Blacks don’t owe Democrats their allegiance, they should vote for the candidate who best reflects their values.
