Diamond & Silk Say They’re Not Voting for ‘Jim Crow’ Joe
Diamond & Silk, the famous Trump supporters, told the “Todd Starnes Show” on Wednesday that they took issue with Joe Biden‘s comment last week when he said “you ain’t black” if you don’t support him.
The sisters laughed off the suggestion—which many found offensive—and said it is remarkable that he would have such a sense of entitlement to make such a comment.
“We came out of our mother’s womb black; we were raised black and we are still black,” said Diamond, also known as Lynette Hardaway. “And we’re not voting for Jim Crow Joe.”
The term “Jim Crow” was considered a derisive term for black men that identified state laws in the South that put into place different rules for blacks and whites, according to the Constitutional Rights Foundation.
“He has to understand that he is not the slave master and he don’t own people,” Diamond said.

“Joe Biden has been in the government for half a century and he hasn’t done anything for no America, including black America,” she said.
Diamond said the one thing Biden did during his lifetime in politics was to push a 1994 crime bill that locked up thousands of African-American men.
Biden has been trying to move on from the damaging interview last week with Charlamange tha God, where he said, “I tell you, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
Biden tried to dismiss the comments as good-old fashion messing around and said he was being a “wise guy.”
Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C. told “The View” this week that he still supports Biden, but admitted that he “cringed” at the comments.
“In this instance, Joe did not do as well as I had hoped .. but I will say this, I go about my business every day comparing Joe Biden to the alternative, not the Almighty. He is not a perfect person, none of us are,” he said.
Clyburn is credited with single-handedly saving Biden’s campaign with his endorsement in South Carolina. If he came out against Biden, his campaign would be in jeopardy.
Diamond said the best way to handle Biden in the 2020 election is to “let Joe be Joe and let Joe keep talking.”
