The hashtag #BlackJobs went viral on X/Twitter after the Presidential debate between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump on Thursday.

Black Twitter reacted to Trump’s frequent mentions of “Black jobs” during the debate. Trump attacked Biden’s immigration policies and migrants who Trump said were “taking Black jobs.”

“His big kill on the Black people is the millions of people that he’s allowed to come in through the border,” said Trump. “They’re taking Black jobs now, and it could be 18, it could be 19, and even 20 million people, they’re taking Black jobs.”

Many users on Black Twitter were left wondering what “Black jobs” are.

The hashtag began trending on X after Jaime Harrison, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, asked What the hell is a “Black job?!”

In an exclusive statement to theGrio, the Biden-Harris campaign called Trump’s “Black jobs” remarks yet another example of his “racism.”

“You wouldn’t know it from beltway coverage, but last night, Black Twitter came together and stood up against Trump’s continued racism, and made it very clear that Black America won’t be fooled by his erratic lies in the most viral moment of the debate,” said Jasmine Harris, the Biden-Harris campaign’s director of Black media.

“I’ll give Donald Trump $100 towards a new hair piece if he can explain to me what the hell a Black job is. Black voices across the internet made it very clear that Black America will be sending Joe Biden and Kamala Harris back to the White House come November to continue delivering historic progress on our behalf,” she said.
