Black Democratic Governor, Congressman slam Biden and Obama (+video)

America’s first black governor in modern times has become the most senior Democrat to break ranks over Joe Biden’s ‘y’all in chains’ comments, telling the Vice President: ‘Slavery is nothing to joke about.’

Douglas Wilder, who was governor of Virginia from 1990 to 1994 and the first black governor since Reconstruction, told CNN that ‘without question’ Biden’s remarks in Danville, Virginia (though the veep seemed to think he was in North Carolina) ‘were appeals to race’.

He continued: ‘The important thing I got out of this was Biden separated himself from what he accused the people of doing. As a matter of fact, what he said is they are going to do something to y’all, not to me. Not us. So he was still involved with that separate American.

‘As far as I am concerned, the President would not associate himself with those remarks. And I expect as the days go forward there will be more clarity associated with what the president feels about what Joe Biden said.

In another interview, with Fox News, Wilder said: ‘Slavery is nothing to joke about. And the history of this nation’s involvement with slavery is nothing to pass off in a joke.’  Read more from this story HERE.

Four-term black Democratic Congressman Artur Davis also slams Biden and Obama for the “racial viciousness” of Biden’s chain remarks.

    I can’t understand why African Americans support this party. They throw you crumbs, destroyed the Black American Families by taking the fathers out of the family. Their belief is to give you a fish a day for your family. This to completely rule over you. Conservaties believe we should teach you to fish. This way you can feed your family more than one fish a day. If you become really good at it, you can sell the excess to your neighbors. Hence Capitalism working. Get the message. Stop following the new crackers, Stapleton, Jackson, and the black caucus in DC odumbo and seek ways of standing on your own two feet. Why do you think this party goes after Black Americans who made it? They don’t want the rest of you to get any ideas. Wake up people.

    Gov. Davis has it right. VP Biden is way out of line, and the Pres. should admit that it was wrong. I am so tired of this administration dividing our country with racism, classism, and all the other isms. Regarding GM, the only reason they were number 1 for a short time was because of the earthquake which stopped car production altogether in Japan. Toyota has just reclaimed their number one spot.

      Carolyn…it is NOT Gov Davis it is congressman Davis. The Gov was Wilder, a former Gov from Virginia…the power of words huh..

      I have NEVER OWNED a foreign car and NEVER a Toyota…There is only one differance between and any foreign car…the salary they pay their people….It’s like My Harley Davidson…it is a 1991 and has more miles on it than a lot of cars, and yet the hondas and the suzukis have be purchased new, but mind just keeps going on and on and on. I have 3 cars, all American made and 2 of them have 200k plus miles on them and are still going. IT’S The MONEY honey, and the U.S. unions pay the workers wages the Japanese etc do not. Japanese people seem to want to work for very how can anyone compete w/that!!

  • Has Obama or anyone in his adm done anything to help the blacks in this country. Unemployment higher in the black communities and especially the young blacks at almost 40 or 50 percent. And them saying the republicans are against women, well, look it up, the women in the white house are paid less than their male counterparts. No one gender or race should have an upper hand in getting employed. And if you have tests, the people at the top of the list should be hired, whether black or white, green or yellow or male or female. When are we going to quit demonizing
    the whites for the slavery that happened more than 200 years ago. Everyone should get their job only on their merits. Spend more time and I don’t mean money educating all people. When O says if you have a successful business, you didn’t build it, someone helped you along the way and he talked about teachers and others. He didn’t mention parents and churches. Well, if teachers were doing such a fantastic job, why are we less educated in this country compared to so many other industrialized countries.

  • I want to add that I think many blacks don’t want a hand out, they want a hand up.

    Tell Mr. Davis to get out of the dark side (with that I mean Democrat Party) and join the Brighter Side, and help Allen West restore America.

    Point to ponder….If Obama is so concerned about African Americans, then why is the unemployment rate so very high amongst the Black population, and he has done little to nothing to help them achieve a higher rate of employment. Seems they want to keep them at bay, at a distance, and help them remain in poverty, etc. Who has actually gone into a Black Neighborhood and gone door to door to help the Black Community get a better life….has anyone started “Vocational Schools” in Black Neighborhoods? That could actually be done on a volunteer basis. Teach the girls sewing, needlework, art, cooking, canning, typing, basic home economics, ….teach the boys carpentry, metal work, auto repair, shoe repair, and book binding and Chef school. They could start their own businesses and be on their way to some prosperity. The pure and simple fact is THEY JUST DON’T CARE!

      Isn’t that the TRUTH! Obama is NO firend of the black man or any man, ONLY a friend of his own self!!

    Biden is a racist and a bigot in private of course, and he thinks ethnic people are stupid! He’s the idiot! Does he really think he can get away with such juvenile tactics!? Embarrassing that he is where he is, not surprising though!
