Georgia State Representative Vernon Jones, an African American Democrat, t0ld Joe Biden that he was not “entitled” to black support after the former vice president said black voters who were not sure who to vote for in the upcoming presidential election “ain’t black.”
“You’re not entitled to black support, Joe.
And I am voting for President Donald J. Trump.
Biden’s comments stoked criticism from across the political spectrum — from African Americans listeners, prominent African American musicians such as Diddy, and conservative African American pundits and politicians.
Jones is a Democrat but came out earlier this year in support of President Donald Trump’s reelection, citing Trump’s actions to help the black community such as criminal justice reform, unemployment, and support for historically black colleges and universities.
