Podcast host: What does it mean to be Black?

On the May 23 episode of the podcast “The Roommates,” host Hafeez responds to Democratic Party presidential candidate Joe Biden’s comments during his interview the day before on the Breakfast Club Power 105.1 radio show with Charlamagne tha God.

Some background, in case you’re busy with lockdowning and surviving: Biden, the Democrats’ apparently presumptive nominee, first repeated the false, centrist talking point that the only choice voters have in the 2020 race for the White House is between him and Republican party incumbent Trump. The man who boasted about his friendships with segregationists then made a comment that ignited a media inferno: He said to Charlamagne that if “you,” we assume a general someone with any African ancestry, don’t vote for him, then “you ain’t Black.”

For his part, Charlamagne, real name Lenard Larry McKelvey, offered a response to the former Obama vice-president to The Hill.
