Joe Biden spoke of his connection to black voters at an NAACP event Sunday afternoon and claimed his “political identity” was molded by minorities in his home state of Delaware.
“I have a lot of black support because that’s where I come from. I was raised in the black church, politically, not a joke,” the former vice president said in Des Moines. “When I got into politics, I was the only white guy working on the east side, in the projects, because these were the guys I grew up with. These were the guys I worked with.”
Biden addressed a packed room of roughly 100 people, mostly white, at a minority outreach organization called Urban Dreams. Although he appeared roughly 30 minutes after his start, attendees continued trickling in before he addressed the crowd.
Biden repeated questionable claims that he frequented a black church during the civil rights movement while attending a service honoring Martin Luther King Jr. on Sunday.
During the 2020 presidential campaign trail, Biden would frequently comment that he attended services at a black church as a teenager, but members of that church in Wilmington, Delaware do not recall him ever attending.
The fact-checkers aren’t trying to debunk Biden’s lies a video that we have from Ebenezer Baptist Church on MLK day doesn’t need more explanation
In the video, Joe Biden is looking absolutely lost.
He looks like a guy who goes to a party where he doesn’t know anyone and tries to fit in.
This is video evidence and probably this is the first time Joe visited a black church.
During a speech in 2019, Biden told Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH coalition: ‘I got raised in a black church.’
‘We would go sit in Reverend Herring’s church, sit there before we’d go out, and try to change things when I was a kid in college and in high school,’ he added, referencing the prominent African American Union Baptist Church in Wilmington.
Herring’s longtime assistant Phyllis Drummond, who attended Union Baptist for 39 years, said does not think Biden attended in the 1960s.
