    Biden says black voters considering Trump over him "ain't black"

    -Joe Biden defended his legislative record in an often contentious Friday morning interview with Charlamagne The God, the host of the popular radio show "The Breakfast Club," and argued that his presidential campaign was doing enough to reach out to black voters. At one point, Biden argued that black voters undecided on whether to vote for him or for President Trump "ain't black."

    When Charlamagne asked him about comments from the rapper Sean Combs, who performs as Diddy, that Democrats take black voters for granted, Biden noted that he had won overwhelmingly in the South Carolina primary.

    "I won every single county. I won the largest share of the black vote that anybody had, including Barack," Biden continued, noting that his home state of Delaware has the eighth largest black population in the country. "They're the folks that, as they say up my way, brung me to the dance. That's how I get elected every single time."

    Biden also defended his support for the 1994 crime bill which implemented harsher penalties for minor drug offenses, and which exacerbated mass incarceration, affecting poor black communities in particular...

    That's racism. He's demanding a certain behavior of a group defined according to racial characteristics and nothing else. It's not about the political views of one's choice, not about prosperity levels, not about culture. Unless Trump's politics can be demonstrated to be expressedly negative towards the same racially defined group, it's nothing but racist.

    He's getting a lot of blowback from this, but it won't stick. If Trump had said something similar it would be WW3 in the press.

    "Whites vote for Trump, he takes care of the white race"

    That's more like an instant nuclear Holocaust.

    But what is the difference ?

    Positive and reverse racism are still very much allowed, that's the point. Positive racism can amount to nothing more than playing into a victim culture.

    And tried to impeach him over it.

    One story on CNN home page about it, and of course it's a somewhat defending him article:

    What Biden said was outrageous. But, some say, so was the reaction

    If Trump had said it there would have been a huge reaction and CNN wouldn't have an article about how maybe the reaction was outrageous.

    CNN downplays Biden's 'you ain't black' comments, avoids on-air coverage throughout the day

    CNN, which often dedicates wall-to-wall coverage for any latest controversy from President Trump, virtually avoided covering Joe Biden's "you ain't black" remarks Friday morning that sparked backlash throughout the day.

    Fox News and MSNBC covered the dust-up throughout the day. ABC News, CBS News and NBC News all addressed the controversy on their evening programs.

    However, CNN's lack of coverage throughout the day was called out by critics.

    "Fascinating to watch how the left-leaning cable networks have covered Biden's 'you ain't black' comment. MSNBC has discussed it nearly every hour... CNN hasn't mentioned it once," former CNN digital producer-turned-media critic Steve Krakauer tweeted.

    George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley pointed out the "crickets" coming from CNN. In the afternoon, Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel called out the network for going hours without mentioning the controversy.

    "It's been over 5 HOURS since Biden told Black people they 'ain't black' if they support @realDonaldTrump. How many times has CNN mentioned his bigoted comment on air? ZERO. Unreal," McDaniel tweeted.

    She later slammed the anti-Trump network for waiting until "12 hours" to mention Biden's "bigoted remarks," tweeting, "We all know that if a Republican made a similar comment, CNN would have reworked their entire day of programming to feature 9-person panels condemning it. The bias is unbelievable."

    "When you take into account how both MSNBC covered this repeatedly and Biden decided to issue a mea culpa, you're left with no conceivable excuse for CNN other than they did so on purpose," NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck told Fox News. "Instead, they decided that trashing the administration for allowing houses of worship to reopen and gleefully touting negative hydroxychloroquine headlines were jobs one and two."

    Houck continued: "CNN has their insane way of going about their newsgathering, presentation and selection, but ignoring a story like this for hours and hours reminds us that their demands that other news organizations act like they do should not only be dismissed but laughed out of the room."

    CNN didn't offer a full on-air report of Biden's remarks until the end of the 7 p.m. ET hour, when anchor Erin Burnett spoke with Charlamagne tha God about the interview, making it the last major news network to report on Biden's comments. It had articles published on the website earlier in the day.

    Instead, the network spent much of the day offering critical coverage of the Trump administration's handling of the coronavirus outbreak...
