Biden: ‘You Ain’t Black’ If You Can’t Decide Between Me and Trump ... But are they 'articulate and bright and clean' like Obama?

MY TAKE FIRST: Joe Biden has a history of racist statements (Democrats like to call them gaffes because it sounds less racist).

Now Joe sort of apologized and Team Biden Suggests VP’s ‘You Ain’t Black’ Remarks Were Made ‘In Jest’.

I'm still wondering though if Joe now thinks those Blacks who may support(ed) Trump, are 'articulate and bright and clean' like Obama?

Anyway, on to the story:
Joe Biden said in a Friday interview that a black voter who can’t decide between him and President Trump in the 2020 elections isn’t really black.
“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden told radio DJ Charlamagne tha God on The Breakfast Club. (The comments come at around the 17:15 mark.)
“It don’t have nothing to do with Trump, it has to do with the fact — I want something for my community,” Charlamagne responded.
The comments came after Biden said his campaign was looking into “multiple” African-American women to pick as his running mate.
Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina, the only Republican African American senator currently in office, slammed Biden’s remarks.
“1.3 million black Americans already voted for Trump in 2016. Joe Biden told every single one of us we ‘ain’t black.'” Scott wrote on Twitter. “I’d say I’m surprised, but it’s sadly par for the course for Democrats to take the black community for granted and browbeat those that don’t agree.”
Senior Biden adviser Symone Sanders hit back at critics of the candidate’s Friday remarks.
