Former vice president Joe Biden is the soundbite machine that keeps on giving. In what used to be a weekly occurrence, it seems that Biden saying something non-sensical or controversial now happens on almost a daily basis.
Biden was in the middle of an interview “with representatives from the national associations of black and Hispanic journalists,” according to Yahoo! News, when he said something about both communities, generalizing one while praising the other for their diversity.
“What you all know, but most people don’t know,” Biden said in reference to the black and Hispanic journalists he was talking to, “unlike the African-American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things.”
Is Biden saying that all black people think the same? “With notable exceptions,” of course. It sounds like Biden doesn’t think black people can have diversity of thought.
Take a look and judge for yourselves:
That type of sentiment shouldn’t be that surprising coming from someone who recently said that if you’re a black person and you don’t vote for him in the upcoming 2020 presidential election, “you ain’t black.”
Is it possible that Biden not only doesn’t think that black people have the ability to have diversity of thought, but also that he might not want them to have said diversity of thought?
