Joe Biden Tells NAACP Audience He Was “Raised In The Black Church”

Have you noticed that Joe Biden is very comfortable making outrageous claims about himself?

He recently did it again.

While speaking at an event for the NAACP in Iowa, Biden suggested that he has minority support as a candidate because he was raised in the black church. Does anyone believe that?

The Washington Examiner reports:

“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.
