Radio host Charlamagne tha God appeared on CNN Friday night and said former Vice President Joe Biden is “a very intricate part” of “systemic racism” in America.
“My overall takeaway from the conversation is that I heard him talk about things he did for black people back in the day but what have you done for me lately is my motto,” Charlamagne explained to CNN’s Erin Burnett.
“Whether you’re talking about 84 with the mandatory minimum sentences for drug dealers, when you talk about 86 with crack laws that gave you more time for crack cocaine and powder cocaine, or if you talk about the 94 crime bill.”
Charlamagne also called out Biden over his record of supporting laws through the years and how the rise of drug-related arrests led to a rise in incarceration rates among black Americans.
Biden was at the center of outrage on Friday when he appeared on The Breakfast Club, a podcast partly hosted by Charlamagne which has interviewed several prominent Democrat presidential hopefuls.
