Civil rights attorney Leo Terrell on Thursday, July 23, said that he will not be voting for presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden for “insulting” African Americans and not helping them amid crime waves.
“Joe Biden has insulted every African American by saying if you don’t vote for me, ‘You ain’t Black.’ I’m Black. I’m not voting for him,'” Terrell told Fox News’s Bill Hemmer, referencing Biden’s infamous “You ain’t black” comments to Charlamagne tha God.
“He’s an insult to every American because people decide on the competency of the candidate—Joe Biden has to help the people in those cities and he’s not doing it. He’s in his basement,” he said.
Terrell also scolded media for saying that President Donald Trump “doesn’t care” about black Americans.
“[Biden] has not gone to these Democratic cities and embraced the victims like President Trump has. He has not walked hand in hand with police officers,” Terrell said.
The father of Horace Lorenzo Anderson, a 19-year-old shot and killed in the Seattle CHOP zone earlier this month, said no one had reached out to him since his son’s death, including the Mayor of Seattle Jenny Durkan (D) who hesitated to clear the zone. He said he was amazed when he got a condolence call from President Trump but not from Durkan.
“Incredibly, Donald Trump called me,” said 50-year-old Horace Lorenzo Anderson Sr., reported Fox10. “The President of the United States called me today. He gave his condolences, and me, I’m not a political guy. I told him, ‘Nobody like you.’ I’m real. Donald Trump called me and he didn’t have to call me.”
However, mainstream media refused to report on the president’s positive outreach to black Americans, according to Terrell.
“The cable networks, other than Fox, didn’t show the president with these murder victims’ families. They’re trying to create a false narrative. The narrative they’re trying to create is the president doesn’t care. The reality is, most Americans, Democrats as well, they want law and order,” he said.
Biden on Wednesday labeled President Trump as the first racist U.S. president for his reference to coronavirus as “China virus” and accused the president of attempting to “divide the country, divide people, not pull them together.”
