According to a recent interview with Joe Biden, you aren't really black unless you vote for him. This is what I mean by Democrats taking the black vote for granted.

Greetings,

Indeed. Joe Biden would have been well advised to read this topic and considering the experiences of Candace Owens BEFORE flapping his gums.

He tells the truth: one doesn't have to be of white colored skin to be the new white in the USA.
Next question!

But that's not what Biden said. He said "you're not black" if you don't vote for him. As if Black-Americans have no choice of their own, no will of their own. Once again, the Democrats taking the Black-Americans for granted, patronizing and demeaning them.

I'll admit it was a very stupid thing to say, but its not half as stupid as multiple things Trump has said, so once again we have two very bad choices for President, makes you think this is what the powers that be wanted all along.
18 years ago I made one of the most important decisions of my life and entered a local Cambodian Buddhist Temple as a temple boy and, for only 3 weeks, an actual Therevada Buddhist monk.

That sounds a lot like you just called non-Democrat blacks "Uncle Toms".

I hope that's not what you meant, but please clarify.

Greetings,

A nice video, done by Candace Owens and Dave Rubin about a chapter from his book "Don’t Burn This Book”

It's about the experiential impacts of being attacked and exiled by the intolerant social justice mob, and why not to let their tyrannical "book burning" attitude force you to submit to their ideology.

Skip straight to 12:42 if you want to get to the bit about whether and when to apologize.

What do you think? If ideological hate mobs abuse you for your beliefs, should you surrender and consent?

Oh look now it's time for some oppression olympics

To be fair to Joe Biden, the only black person he knows besides Barack Obama is named Cornpop.

Let's just say he's not very in touch with black America. The only story he could tell to a crowd of black people about his time working at an all-time pool is the time he threatened a black gang leader with violence.
