During an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday, civil rights attorney Leo Terrell unloaded on former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, stating that he has “the mindset of a plantation owner.”
The comments came while Terrell, Hannity and radio show host Larry Elder were talking about Biden's recent comments where he said the Latino community is much more "diverse" than the black community.
“And by the way, what you all know, but most people don’t know, unlike the African American community – with notable exceptions – the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things,” Biden said to NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro. “You go to Florida, you find a very different attitude about immigration in certain places than you do when you’re in Arizona. So it’s a very different, a very diverse community.”
“Joe Biden is unfit to be president and Joe Biden is a racist,” Terrell said. “Joe Biden has the mindset of a plantation owner. He thinks he knows how every black person thinks, how we walk, what we should eat. Joe Biden doesn’t understand that black people are individuals. Condoleezza Rice and Al Sharpton are different individuals. We have a different mindset.”
Terrell then predicted that the Democrats would “roll out [Rep.] Jim Clyburn” to say “it’s okay.”
“Jim Clyburn doesn’t speak for me or Larry or black Americans,” he added. “No one black person speaks for black America … Joe Biden insulted every black American today. And he should not be president. He is the racist.”
Terrell went on to say that Biden will get a “pass because he has a D in front of his name, not a R. Republicans are the people who believe in a color-blind society. Democrats are the ones who believe in identity and race politics.”
On Thursday evening, Biden tried walking back on his original comments but refused to apologize.
“Earlier today, I made some comments about diversity in the African American and Latino communities that I want to clarify. In no way did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith—not by identity, not on issues, not at all,” his Twitter account tweeted.
President Donald Trump also spoke out about Biden's comment, stating that the former Vice President is "no longer worthy" of the black vote.
“Sleepy Joe Biden just lost the Black Vote. This statement is a disaster from which their is no recovery!” Trump tweeted.
While speaking to the media in front of the White House, President Trump said: "Joe Biden, this morning, totally disparaged and insulted the black community. What he said is incredible. And I don’t know what’s going on with him, but it was a very insulting statement he made"
"I guess you’ll figure that out. You’ll see it in a little while. But it was a great insult to the black community."
