Larry Elder was a guest on The Breakfast Club, where he spoke about his 2024 presidential campaign, systematic racism, and fatherlessness in the Black community. 

Charlamagne asked Elder if he ever had a “n***a wake-up call.” Charlamagne described it as a person of coloUr forgetting they’re of coloUr and being reminded of the fact “rather brutally by an unexpected act of racism.” 

This led to Elder bringing up Joe Biden’s appearance on The Breakfast Club in 2020, where Biden responded to Charlamagne telling him he had more questions as he tried to exit the interview. Elder told Charlamagne that he was shocked that he wasn’t more mad about the comment, which led to a tense discussion between the two men.
