Squires: The President’s Right: I’m Not ‘Biden Black’

Sunny Hostin had a Biden moment on The View last week when she said she liked the concept of a black republican is an oxymoron. Her rejection of blacks who don’t vote Democrats is an even less refined version of President Joe Biden’s infamous phrase, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re pro-Me or Trump, then you’re not black.”

Biden received immediate backlash for his comment during the 2020 campaign, but a tweet from Nikole Hannah-Jones brought his point even more into focus. According to the Pulitzer Prize Winner New York Times journalist: “There is a difference between being politically black and being racially black. I’m not defending anyone, but we all know that and should stop pretending we’re not.”

Jones was right: Political blackness is an identity itself, based on the number of times black women were cited as the event’s primary victims roe tipped over, the president is right too: I’m not black.

I reject the racist worldview shared by Biden and Jones because political blackness — what I will call “Biden blackness” — is characterized by unconscious self-loathing, an inability to assess obstacles to progress, an unwillingness to speak difficult truths, and an unhealthy one Essence is characterized by preoccupation with the thoughts, words, and actions of white people.

Practitioners of Biden Blackness blame whites for all their problems but ridicule blacks who preach a message of self-sufficiency. Biden blacks believe white allies are more important than black fathers. They can’t agree on a coherent definition of “white supremacy,” but they are certain that destroying it is more important than rebuilding the black family.

Biden blackness in 2022 often has nothing to do with improving social outcomes for black citizens. It is more often used as a thin facade to hide the left’s real priorities. Much of the gay rights movement of the past 60 years has revolved around the priorities of educated, middle-class white men who wanted it open minded enjoy the same spoils of middle-class normalcy as their straight counterparts.

Now every statement President Biden makes on transgender issues includes a reference to “violence against black trans women and girls of color,” and the most prominent LGBTQIA+ activist organization of the past decade is Black Lives Matter.

The same dynamic is at play with abortion. What was once seen as a third-wave feminist priority for middle-class white women has now been framed as a top political priority for black women. Democrats argue that any restrictions on abortion in a post-roe world are tantamount to attacks on the “reproductive rights” of low-income black women.

White liberals and their black political conspirators have joined forces to convince the country that black lives matter — unless the life in question is growing up in its mother’s womb.

The fatal flaw of Biden blackness is the same one that plagues our broader culture – the total abandonment of a biblical worldview as the primary basis of public policy, social customs, and cultural norms.

The most obvious examples of this can be found in the words of “pro-life pastors” like Senator Raphael Warnock or the Black Lives Matter campaign declaring that “Black women are divine.” The more dangerous manifestation of the secular nature of political blackness is its refusal to engage in a discussion of morality in broad assessments of black communities across the country.

Politicians, pundits, academics, and entertainers who adhere to Biden’s blackness all hold the same materialistic worldview that blames a lack of resources and the unequal distribution of wealth for all the negative social consequences among black people in America.

They see white people as having moral agency and agency, including the power to use their “privilege” on behalf of “people of color.” These same elites treat blacks as melanized vessels of disorder fueled by historical oppression and contemporary marginalization—unable to manage our behavior, our relationships, or our homes without targeted government intervention.

I’ve even noticed this type of thinking among a certain subset of Black Christians who are normally vocal on “social justice” issues but have been conspicuously quiet after a Supreme Court bill was overturned roe was made public.

Their responses ranged from arguing that conservative anti-abortion activism was rooted in abortion racism religious law 1970s movement to lectures on why true Pro-life Christians must fight for more government spending health care and childcare, not just the end of legalized abortion. The latter argument ignores the extensive work that believers, churches, and Christian ministries are already doing to support mothers and their children through crisis pregnancy centers, care drives, and adoption services.

The reason for hiding these posts is simple: nothing makes practitioners of Biden blackness more nervous than being associated with conservatism, especially in the Trump era. The stench of MAGA politics is powerful enough to silence Christians who have been vocal opponents of abortion for decades, or embrace liberal arguments about the structural forces driving women to demand abortions.

Biden’s blackness is a cancer in body politics. It’s a destructive racing card drawn from the bottom of the deck that runs counter to the interests of the black masses who embrace it. It requires shifting responsibility for improving the lot of blacks to external third parties—generally benevolent whites, black elites pushing their own agendas, and paternalistic government bureaucrats.

Biden’s blackness is a made-up identity steeped in weakness, insecurity, and confusion. Because of this, the NAACP sees more value in working with White B-List Who “To take responsibility” for racism than in working with black A-list entertainers to promote responsibility in the education of our families.

Its shortcomings are also apparent when you listen to people who yell “protect black women” but see black men trying to do so as “toxic masculinity.”

The same is true of public intellectuals, who argue that the only hope for black students to succeed academically is through proximity to white classmates.

Any group that uses the terms “personal responsibility” and “honesty” pejoratively while celebrating violence, debauchery, and drug abuse is on the road to cultural extinction. Biden Blackness sees fictional racial hatred as a worse problem than actual self-loathing.

One of the benefits of abandoning the Biden blackness has been the discovery of fellow Christians of diverse ethnic backgrounds united in the knowledge that mankind’s main problem is not the color of our skin, but the nature of our sin.

In that sense, I have much more in common with a white Christian woman and an Asian man who share my views on the importance of marriage, family and faith than I do with the co-founders of BLM. All three of us know that a party that works more to lose the “right” to kill the unborn than to promote marriage and healthy families is morally inadequate and politically untenable.

The President was right about one thing: I’m not a Biden black man.
