The five Black Republican members of Congress released a video series this week making fun of President Biden's old gaffes about race. Joe Biden on the topic of race.

The first part of America’s Starting Five released on Friday and features Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Reps. Burgess Owens (R-UT), John James (R-MI), and Wesley Hunt (R-TX) in a roundtable discussion on the 2024 presidential race. Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) also joined the episode at the tail end.

The Republicans started by discussing a 2020 interview in which Biden said if you were having a hard time choosing between him and Trump, “You ain’t Black.” The president later apologized for the comment.

“It’s sometime frustrating as well as entertaining. Frustrating in that Democrats and Joe Biden get away with saying the darnedest things and are never held accountable by anyone for the things they say that are so salacious. Entertaining because that is funny,” Scott said in reaction to the video.

The group also reviewed tape from 2019 of Biden saying, “We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids. Wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids — no I really mean it, but think how we think about it.”

“So, here’s the thing,” James said. “I don’t think these are gaffes. I think Joe Biden is as serious as a heart attack. I think this is really what he thinks. The arrogance of these white liberals condescending not just to African Americans but to poor kids in general.”

Hunt later noted each House Republican at the table is from a white-majority district.

“A loooot of white people had to vote for us and I’d like to say that means we’ve come a long way as a country and we are literally being judged by the content of our character, not by the color of our skin,” he said.
