Joe Biden said Friday he should not have been “cavalier” about support from African Americans and insisted he does not take black voters for granted after a backlash over his comments earlier in the day that if a voter is still undecided, “you ain’t black.” “I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy,” he said on a call with the U.S. Black Chamber on Friday afternoon. “I shouldn’t have been so cavalier.” He added: ”No one should have to vote for any party based on their race, their religion, their background.” Subscribe to our YouTube channel: https://bit.ly/2TwO8Gm QUICKTAKE ON SOCIAL: Follow QuickTake on Twitter: twitter.com/quicktake Like QuickTake on Facebook: facebook.com/quicktake Follow QuickTake on Instagram: instagram.com/quicktake Subscribe to our newsletter: https://bit.ly/2FJ0oQZ Email us at [email protected] QuickTake by Bloomberg is a global news network delivering up-to-the-minute analysis on the biggest news, trends and ideas for a new generation of leaders.
