Earlier this year, P. Diddy, also known as Sean Combs, dropped a social media message in which he said that the “black vote ain’t free” this year. And this weekend, his prior statement only became even more pertinent after Joe Biden’s conversation with Charlamagne Tha God on The Breakfast Club.
In case you missed it, Joe stopped by for a very short interview with Charlamagne, the host of The Breakfast Club, in which the two discussed a number of topics, including his policies, his positions, but also the idea of Black Americans being taken for granted by the Democratic party.
The part of the interview that generated the most controversy was when Joe declared, “you ain’t black,” if you had to consider whether to vote for him or for Donald Trump. The comment obviously didn’t go down well.
Many social media users weren’t thrilled with what Biden had to say about Black Americans and their political dispositions. Sean Combs was just one of them, and all he had to do was reiterate one of his past remarks on how black people’s vote wouldn’t be taken for granted by the DNC.

As it was previously reported, Biden also apologized for the way he acted during the interview. Joe said he was too “cavalier,” and that he has never taken the African-American community for granted.
Interestingly, Tim Scott, a black Republican senator who just so happens to be the only one in the Senate, pointed out that Joe Biden’s remarks were obviously very insensitive too many. He stated that around a million and a half African-Americans voted for Donald Trump back in 2016.
It’s not unreasonable to assume that Joe Biden’s comments didn’t help his cause among those very same voters. Regarding Charlemagne Tha God, this likely only cements his prior position on Biden and how he likely wasn’t the greatest candidate.
During past media appearances, Charlamagne said out loud that he didn’t understand all of the “hype” around Biden.
