8:15 pm
wants to earn that support and. >>he doesn't take it for granted, we have a chance now to welcome in political science professor james taylor from usf to talk more about those professor taylor did he did he turn the page on this and put it behind the murders is still going to be an issue moving forward. >>i think it's over and over jack to have you can and to i think it's much much ado about nothing. i consider emergency that yet the american community and other communities are enduring with corona. if you sort of itemizing prioritize african americans and thinking about. this is a news event has very little to do even the election. so i think joe biden got set up. i think joe biden had done said 18 of the summer and 29 seconds of an interview in the 17 minutes and 29 seconds when it was over in did you have been they tried to stop it twice of charlemagne jet asking in fact, joe biden started talking about south carolina
8:16 pm
and almost and install them. he said no police say it's a 72. he says i need you to say it's a southern thing was thirsty looking for controversy and he got the controversy wanted irony is. >>he is doing a disservice to the black community image show the breakfast club because what they're doing is creating this fog about nothing with joe biden talked for 18 years 18 minutes said something in 2 seconds are coming out 18 minutes of the defense of his 1980 to acquire go he actually talked care he talked about reparations for african-americans he says he's coming up with a black agenda he talked about getting public defenders, the same kind of salaries as prosecutors at the federal level he said i know black people are being killed he talked about being a bullet to change on marijuana even said i know a lot of people that smoke we that was news worthy. but instead the breakfast club and show them in a god with thursday for and
8:17 pm
got was a sound bite and it now has carried the day but the disservice to the black community is we can hear what biden said what biden said was basically i will do everything all about the black agenda. he says i will have black women of my cabinet, our promise you he promises all of this and he acknowledges the suffering of black people to have that conversation and then in 10 seconds after the interviews, oak work is getting a they say my wife is he said my wife is coming and they get in trouble at to get out of this and to do and it's all the money is begging him okay we'll come back and if you go back and watch the film them. you see charlemagne doesn't even react when joe biden says what we're all talking about because he didn't react and the interview is ended by a charlemagne is talking charmaine does need to say hey we got to talk about that the next time. it was not even acknowledge when it was stated and then all of a sudden after they were looking for sound bite they found what joe biden said a note the i know a lot of people that smoke week that should be some
8:18 pm
but we're talking about or what he said about his agenda instead we'r has an energized base biden campaign needs an energized base in the african american community is a large part of that the trump campaign just wants to peel off a percentage of that base and that could happen with this if it plays up too much. >>part of this i think just the opposite i think if you look at what happened with governor desantis in florida city hyde-smith of mississippi they both made very offensive. racist comments. and neither of them apologize, and actually helped him get elected. what i'm saying is that biden is actually going to be able to pull away some of the reagan democrat voters that on the that the trump base because of this actually because biden made the statement he will be more attractive and african american the farm that that
8:19 pm
they know they're dealing with a lot of people political action here and so they know that the one person that white america will vote for right now is not a woman not a progressive not a radical like bernie, but someone who's not too far removed from jordan, so so they found a truck like a candidate. everyone seems to like him, but i didn't actually say these comments actually appeals to these very same people that will actually suppress donald trump's support so biden making these comments actually helps him with the very people that support donald trump exactly triangulation because biden already has the black vote and he's and black the black voters are using by they are using him to get rid of donald trump and then they will carry out that agenda. so they're willing to put up with these offenses of biting this is not his first he said you know obama was a clean and you know how to get black man he made offensive comments related to of the book no issues of busing and segregation and
8:20 pm
things of that sort that calmer harris brought out. but people know biden number is 96% of the black vote in in his home state on a regular basis. so the real issue here to me is that the media at creating a basically an opportune a a news event immediately grant but has very little to do with the election will have to let people will participate in the elections. they're coming to donald trump and they're they're willing to do a you put aside. biden's of mistakes oppressor taylor almost out of time but 2 real quick of the big. >>news that the bite is going to make next to the really big news is who's going to pick to be his running mate and does this change that dynamic at all does it put more pressure on him to have a black vice-presidential female running mate, there are certainly qualified candidates out i think he knows he's already got i mean i don't think any club that your. >>is the person i think he's issuing out where the balloons and that you know someone like
8:21 pm
the michigan. our governor or val demings in florida or you know maybe even a visit warren will be the candidate and african american voters, the farmer that the american voters don't require a biting to have a black bt and at the cliburn has come out and said that reality is biden is to have a more comprehensive agenda tha prioritizes issues important to african-americans. >>professor james taylor as always we appreciate your analysis, thank you for being with us tonight. thank you. and tune in next wednesday, may the 27th for our congressional town hall special is called the road to reopening politicians from all over the state of california will answer your questions live on air you can either submit a video of your question on our website kron 4 dot com or on twitter using the hashtag reopening ca this inside california politics special air live from 07:00pm to 08:00pm on kron 4 and our kron on app which is free to download right now.
