“I’m black from the ground up, but here’s what I do believe,” Brazile said. “I believe that Joe Biden was incorrect in saying the statement ‘You ain’t black,’ but I also believe that his apology was sufficient.”
“Here we live in a country where thousands of people have died, and a disproportionate number of them are people of color, African-Americans, communities of color,” she added. “So I would rather spend more time talking about these disparities that we have seen that have been amplified during this pandemic when speaking about Joe Biden and his record of blackness.”
Of course she would rather not talk about Biden and race, because to do so would highlight what a longstanding record he has of remarks like “you ain’t black” that are at best insensitive and condescending toward blacks, and at worst racist.
