The Trump campaign is selling “You Ain’t Black” T-shirts to capitalize on Joe Biden’s latest racist remark suggesting that the Democrat Party owns the black vote.
Biden ignited volcanic backlash when he arrogantly told black Americans that “you ain’t black” if you don’t vote for him.
The racist statement suggested that Joe feels entitled to the black vote and that black Americans “owe him” because he’s a Democrat. Biden’s ridiculous use of ebonics was also dripping with racist condescension.
Biden has since apologized, but the damage is done.

To spotlight Biden’s epic blunder, the Trump campaign began selling “You Ain’t Black” T-shirts just hours after Barack Obama’s vice president put his foot in his mouth.
Before unveiling the T-shirts, the Trump campaign torched Biden’s remark as “racist and dehumanizing.”
Katrina Pierson — the leader of the Black Voices for Trump group — remarked: “White liberal elitists have continuously dictated which black Americans are ‘allowed’ to come to the table and have a voice.”
Pierson continued: “Biden truly believes that he — a 77-year-old white man — should dictate how black people should behave. Biden has a history of racial condescension and today he once again proved what a growing number of black Americans and I have always known: Joe Biden does not deserve our votes.”
Biden’s racist comment drew immediate backlash from prominent black Americans.
Senator Tim Scott remarked: “That is the most arrogant, condescending comment I’ve heard in a very long time. He’s saying that 1.3 million African-Americans [who voted for Trump], that you’re not Black? Who in the heck does he think he is?”

Conservative commentator Candace Owens tweeted: “Disgusting! The Democrats view black people as trained chimpanzees who should not ask questions, but perform the same circus act every 4 years.”

Owens then did a riff on Biden’s racist comment by spotlighting the Democrats’ history of using identity politics to bully women and black Americans into voting for them:
- “If you didn’t support Hillary in 2016, #YouAintWoman
- “If you don’t vote for @JoeBiden in 2020, #YouAintBlack
- “If you still can’t see that the Democrats are exactly what they accuse everyone else of being, #YouAintSmart”

In October 2019, Trump-supporter Kanye West slammed the Democratic Party for taking the black vote for granted.
West said for decades, the Democrats paid lip service to helping the black community, but has done nothing to actually improve their financial situation.
Contrast that to President Trump, who brought black unemployment to record lows until the forced coronavirus shutdowns.

West said: “I will not be told who I’m gonna vote for because of my color. Both my parents were freedom fighters…They didn’t fight for me to be told by white people which white person I can vote on.”
Kanye added: “They were fighting for us to have the right to our opinion, not the right to vote for whoever the white liberals said black people are supposed to vote for.”

West was doubling-down on comments he made in September 2018, when he revealed that the left-wing producers at “Saturday Night Live” had bullied him for wearing a MAGA hat on stage.
While recounting the bullying, West praised President Trump and denounced the Democratic Party for exploiting black voters to gain power.
“Blacks want always Democrats!” Kanye said at the time. “It’s their plan: to take fathers out of the home and promote welfare. Does anybody know about that? That’s the Democratic plan.”

West was referring to an ongoing complaint among African-American leaders that the Left’s promotion of government dependence and a victim mentality has marginalized black men and destroyed the black community.
The Democrats’ abject failure to help the black community is why Kanye West — who never voted — vowed to vote for President Trump in November.
