Biden Claims To Have Received NAACP Endorsement For All His Political Runs, But The Organization Begs To Differ

(Right Country) – The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has responded to a claim made by former Vice President Joe Biden that he has been endorsed by the civil rights group for each of his political runs.

Unsurprisingly, Biden’s memory is not so hot.

He made the claim during an explosive interview with “The Breakfast Club” radio show, during which he also stated that “you ain’t black” if you vote for Trump.

“Take a look at my record, man,” Biden told host Charlamagne tha God. “I extended the Voting Rights Act for 25 years. I have a record that is second to none. The NAACP’s endorsed me every time I’ve run.”

“Take a look at the record.”

As it turns out, the NAACP doesn’t even endorse political candidates.

Ooops.

This was clarified by the organization’s president and CEO, Derrick Johnson.

“Yesterday, former Vice President Joe Biden made a comment about the NAACP’s endorsement,” Johnson said in a statement. “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.”

Johnson explained that the group “has one mission,” and endorsing politicians is not part of that mission.

“The NAACP has one mission and that is fighting for and advancing our Black communities towards an equitable reality,” he said.

“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,” Johnson added.

An unidentified official for the Biden campaign told Fox News that the candidate “was referring to his ratings from the organization.”

So was he confused, or flat-out lying? Who even knows at this point.

It is true that, in the NAACP’s Federal Legislative Report Card for the 108th Congress (2003-2004), Biden received a 100 percent rating from the group.

Perhaps this is why he had the confidence to tell Charlamagne, a black man, what it takes to be black when they discussed the upcoming election.

“It’s a long way until November. We’ve got more questions,” Charlamagne said of black voters.

“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden replied.

Biden was forced to walk back the comments just hours later, but the damage had already been done.

“[I] shouldn’t have been so cavalier,” he said on a phone call with black leaders, Business Insider reported.

Johnson also warned Friday that Biden “cannot take the African American vote for granted.

“It is the vote that brought him this far — I think he recognizes that, and there has to be stronger preparation when you go on platforms like ‘The Breakfast Club,’ because it is an aggressive platform, but it’s also a platform where many a millennial and younger African American voters listen to, and it will and can leave an impression,” Johnson told CBS News.

  1. It won’t matter what Biden does to blacks. If history is any guide, he’s guaranteed 90% of their votes. But history is not necessarily a roadmap to the future.

    In order to leave the plantation, blacks must THEMSELVES decide to exercise sovereignty…to say, “I will NOT be told for whom to vote.”

    The door is open. They simply must walk through it. I suspect many already have.

  2. The comment made by Biden is in itself.. a racist comment..
    To identify a group of people by color alone then having an expectation that they will act as a group based on color is racist..
    Lots of luck to you Biden.. your going to need it..

  3. We The People – is “ALL INCLUSIVE!” It DOES NOT DIVIDE PEOPLE BY RACE, COLOR, CREED, BIRTH GENDER, EYE COLOR, or any form of distinction!
    ELECTED OFFICIALS MICRO-MANAGE ACCORDING TO THE ABILITY TO FINANCE LEGISLATION!
    WIIFM – whats in it for me – your “elected OFFICIAL!”
    I must believe, God does not love us based upon our color!
    NAAP – National Association for the Advancement of People! -DUH
    NAAAP – National Association for the
    Advancement of All People! – DUH
    WE THE PEOPLE HAS NO COLOR – BY DESIGN!

  4. So, I will ask each of you to respond:
    What is the difference between African American and American African?

    Born In America to parents of immigrants who came here before the (immigration facility) Ellis Island – “show me your papers” existed!
    Ancestors fled Germany 🇩🇪 in the 1800’s bringing 10 children with them on a wooden boat! NO, we were not slaves to any mortal and “possessed no slaves!”
    So, am I an American German or German American? Maybe this will help you decide:
    I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION UNDER GOD INDIVISIBLE WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL! 🇺🇸✝️🙏
    This is not rocket science. . .
    This weekend of all weekends, if you are pledging your allegiance to another country, I would be so bold as to suggest 1 of 2 options:
    1. Keep your mouth 👄 shut
    2. GTFO!
    Thank you to every Veteran who paid for our freedom and liberty!
    All gave some
    Some gave all

  5. Again Biden follows in the Democratic platform based on lies, shifting blame, and corruption. NAACP did NOT endorse Quid Pro Qui Joe.

  6. Imagine if:
    The N A A “C” P
    The N A A P
    The N A A “A” P
    all endorsements went to current president who has done more for all people regardless of ethnic origin or birth gender, or creed, over riding all empty hate, empty diatribe, and most importantly – – – -> regardless of campaign contributions designed to purchase influence!

    Once upon a time, in a land near by, there was a law before the heavily stacked 9 Justices contesting campaign contributions saying it purchased political influence!
    The 9 disregarded the questioning of the law saying, “a form of free speech!”
    For the last 50 + years, elected “OFFICIALS” have been purchased by lobbyists and the deep pocket self serving! On their knees for cash and items of value if they would support certain values. . .?
    On a dark street late at night, an individual walks up to another individual and – – – the second individual offers to show the first individual a “trip around the world” . . . . To which the first individual replies: well, you have clearly determined what you are, now it is a matter of determining your price. . . .?
    Leaves me wondering, was this the prelude to a physical encounter – – – OR, the taking of campaign contributions?
