What’s worse here — the cultural appropriation, or the Democratic-plantation attitude? We report, you decide. Joe Biden told the Breakfast Club host Charlamagne tha God this morning that “multiple black women” are under consideration for his running mate, but Charlamagne still didn’t sound convinced. Biden then offered his final argument for support, which was, er, to question the authenticity of Mr. Tha God (NYT styleguide version):
“I’m not acknowledging anybody who is being considered, but I guarantee you: There are multiple black women being considered. Multiple,” Biden said of his search process for a vice presidential nominee.
It was then that an aide to the Biden campaign could be heard interjecting into the conversation, attempting to cut short the interview. “Thank you so much. That’s really our time. I apologize,” the aide said.
“You can’t do that to black media!” Charlamagne retorted.
