Derrick Johnson, president and CEO of the NAACP, made the following statement about a remark by former Vice President Joe Biden during his Friday morning interview on “The Breakfast Club.”
“Yesterday, former Vice President Joe Biden made a comment about the NAACP’s endorsement. We want to clarify that the NAACP is a non-partisan organization and does not endorse candidates for political office at any level. Persons affiliated with the NAACP at the national, state, and local levels are free to make candidate endorsements in a personal capacity, but they do not reflect support by the NAACP as an organization. The NAACP has one mission and that is fighting for and advancing our Black communities towards an equitable reality. Our primary focus at this moment is to ensure that our communities that have been victims of domestic terrorism and disproportionately impacted by this pandemic have the opportunity to cast their powerful vote come November.”
Dustin Stockton, America First Projects Chief Executive covered a similar story yesterday. Here is what he said:
Presumptive Democrat Presidential Nominee Joe Biden has decided that he can choose whether or not someone is “black” based on who they support politically. “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden told Charlamagne tha God on the popular morning show The Breakfast Club.
