Hollywood, and the media are excellent at one thing with never missing, and that is they are both great liars. Despite hard evidence- there is often a push of the opposite to manipulate the mass. Case in point, presidential hopeful Joe Biden in an interview with Charlamagne Tha God of The Breakfast Club close to the ending of his interview with Biden made a joke about black media.
In return Biden joked that one ain’t black if they don’t vote for him. Biden was clearly joking, and he later went on to talking about his years long history in politics in why African Americans should vote for him. Mainstream quickly placed a spin on Bden’s joke making him out to be ignorant. Instead of just saying that he was joking, and never thought people would take him literally-Biden in a call with black business leaders said this of his comments:
“I should not have been so cavalier. I’ve never, never, ever taken the African American community for granted. I shouldn’t have been so cavalier. … No one should have to vote for any party based on their race, their religion, their background.”
The world of sensitivity is what we live in now. Get use to it people. Why was Charlamagne not ridicule when Biden’s people said time for the interview with Biden was up he said you can’t do that to black media. Why are Charlamagne’s comments also not inappropriate. What makes “black media” and vice versa more important that the other.
