African Americans loved President Obama and Joe Biden together…
They had a Bromance that showed through on pictures and most importantly we respected the fact that the he took care of Obama.
“I know Joe..We know Joe.. and most importantly Joe knows us!”- Rep. Jim Clyburn
I do agree that the South Carolina primary was all about the Rep. Jim Clyburn endorsement ( his is the official kingmaker!), but I also believe the fact that the former VP won every county in South Carolina has a lot do with exactly what Rep. Clyburn said, “We know Joe!”
Most of us were shocked when the results started coming in on Tuesday night and Biden started picking off state after state. What was happening? He swept the south and took some states away from Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren like Massachusetts, Minnesota and Texas…. and it was all because of the Black vote.
Joe took care of President Barack Obama, and now we’re taking care of Joe!
We gave him the nickname “uncle Joe,” when he was President Obama’s wingman. He was like our favorite uncle that came for Thanksgiving dinner. He was cool ( we fell in love with his aviator shades), he gave us practical advice, and he never minced his words. We fell in love with his ability to show his emotions during difficult times (the Emmanuel church shooting comes to mind), and he fought for us even when we didn’t know he was fighting.
Joe is just a good man! A loyal man! and what I know for sure about us is that we are a loyal people.. If you do right by us, we will do right by you. We vote for people we can relate to and people we can trust.
and we trust Joe Biden!
