Joe Biden’s paternalistic claim without evidence that young black entrepreneurs lack assistance from lawyers or accountants to enable them to succeed in the marketplace is hardly sitting well with Los Angeles-based civil rights attorney Leo “2.0” Terrell or conservative commentator and attorney Larry Elder.
In reacting on the Fox News Hannity program to Biden’s remark at the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa Massacre, an amped-up and offended Terrell used the TV platform to send a Fox News Alert: “Joe Biden, look at me! I’m black. I’m a lawyer. Larry’s a lawyer.”
“There are thousands of black lawyers. This is insulting; this is offensive,” Terrell continued. “I’m black. I’m a lawyer, 30 years as a lawyer, and here’s the other part that is so insulting. It makes a false assumption, a racist assumption, that blacks only go to black lawyers. I have black clients, white clients, yellow clients. This guy plays the race card. Somebody needs to tell him he’s a racist…this is crazy.
“Breaking news: I’m black. I’m a lawyer,” Terrell reaffirmed, while he and Elder couldn’t help but laugh at the absurdity of Biden’s premise.
Recalling that Biden infamously claimed during the 2020 campaign that if someone considered voting for President Trump “you ain’t black,” Elder added about Biden that “This is a man that has even never run a lemonade stand, and he’s giving business advice.”
Elder then went on to asserted that Democrats are alarmed about the incrementally increasing share of the black vote that the GOP is winning, and that’s why “they’re pulling out the race card.”
Elder also wondered why Biden, who attended a Catholic prep school, won’t support K-12 vouchers to “give everybody else the opportunity to do the same thing…that will create a lot more black entrepreneurs.”

Host Sean Hannity began the segment by reminding the audience of Biden’s sketchy track record when it comes to race relations, a purported history of insensitivity, or worse, that Fox News contributor Terrell has also gone on television to reveal.
As a prologue to the discussion with Terrell and Elder, Hannity noted that everyday Americans from all backgrounds are tired of the constant rhetorical divisiveness promulgated by liberals such as Biden who promised unity upon taking office.
Biden’s comments drew uproar from many of his critics:
According to Joe Biden black people don’t know how to get an ID, hire a lawyer or find an accountant…and if they don’t vote for him they ain’t black.
But yea, Republicans are the real racists.

Black Florida candidate Lavern Spicer was fired up over Biden’s latest comments and said in part, “let me tell your racist ass something, Joe. I’m on the internet right now, I got an ID plus I run businesses & food bank. I’ll be in Congress soon, too.”
Biden says black folks can’t get on the internet, are too dumb to get an ID & don’t have any lawyers or accountants.
Let me tell your racist ass something, Joe.
I’m on the Internet right now, I got an ID plus I run businesses & a food bank.
I’ll be in Congress soon, too.

Leo Terrell 1.0 was an aggressive, vocal liberal who has since become completely disillusioned with Democrats and their far-left agenda.
As 2.0, he has become one of the most forceful media advocates of President Trump and the MAGA movement.
