Larry Elder skewers Charlamagne Tha God over Joe Biden declaring he 'ain't black' if he voted for Donald Trump

Republican presidential candidate Larry Elder verbally sparred with Charlamagne Tha God on a recent episode of "The Breakfast Club" radio show. Elder called out Charlamagne Tha God over not defending himself when Joe Biden declared that any black American who didn't vote for him was not black.

Charlamagne Tha God — whose real name is Lenard Larry McKelvey — asked Elder on Thursday, "Have you ever heard the term 'n***** wake-up call'?"

After Elder responded that he was not familiar with the term, Charlamagne defined it as: "It's an incident where a person of color forgets that they are of color and are reminded rather brutally by an unexpected act of racism. Have you ever had that?"

Elder fired back, "I'm acutely aware, Charlemagne, that I am a black person, just as you are a black person. And when Joe Biden insulted you by saying 'you ain't really black if you don't know whether or not you want to vote for me or vote for Donald Trump.' It seems to me that should've been a wake-up call on your part."

"How dare this guy come in here and insult you, a black man, and tell you that you got to think a certain way. I'm amazed that you weren't mad about that," Elder proclaimed.

Charlamagne deflected, "I'm not going to say that it upset me, just like I'm not letting you upset me. You know? I don't seem to get upset about those things."

Elder hammered the radio host, "Well you just talked about a n***** wake-up call, and it seemed to me that should've been a wake-up call on your part."

Elder then targeted Biden's questionable track record regarding civil rights accomplishments.

"And Joe Biden has lied for decades about his civil rights record, claiming that he desegregated movie theaters and restaurants in Wilmington, Delaware, when he didn’t," Elder proclaimed. "And he didn’t do any of that. He lied and said that he tried to visit Nelson Mandela during apartheid [in] South Africa. He did not."

Elder then continued to expose Charlamagne, "And he came in here and told you that you aren't black unless you think in a certain kind of way? It seems to me that should have been a n***** wake-up call for you, but it wasn't apparently."

Elder said he didn't care about Charlamagne's party affiliation and added, "I'm just saying, but you are black. And to have a white guy come in here and tell you you have to think a certain way, otherwise you 'ain’t black.' Wow!"

The radio host asked how he should have responded to Biden's remark, and Elder advised, "What I just now said: 'How dare you insult me, how I ought to think as a human being, let alone a black person. I don't tell you how to think, Joe Biden. How dare you come in here and tell me how I should think. I'm gonna vote for Donald Trump because I wanna vote for Donald Trump. And if I wanna vote for Donald Trump, it does not make me not black.'"

In May 2020, then-presidential candidate Joe Biden appeared on "The Breakfast Club." An aide is heard on the audio ending the interview early on the hip-hop radio station. Charlamagne told Biden that he had more questions.

Biden arrogantly responded, "You've got more questions? Well, I'll tell you what: if you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black."

Charlamagne replied, "It don't have nothing to do with Trump, it has to do with the fact I want something for my community."

Biden was slammed for his "you ain't black" comment by many, including Black Entertainment Television co-founder Robert L. Johnson, Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Fox News host Harris Faulkner, and hip-hop mogul Diddy.

Following the controversy, Biden apologized for his remark which was deemed as "racist" by some.

"I should not have been so cavalier," Biden said at the time. "I've never, never, ever taken the African American community for granted."

"I shouldn't have been such a wise guy," he added. "I shouldn't have been so cavalier. ... No one should have to vote for any party based on their race, their religion, their background."
