Breitbart posted an article today about a recent comment made by Presidential Candidate Joe Biden.
“unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community.”
The article reports:
National Public Radio’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro asked Biden about whether he would stop the deportation of Cubans.
“I’m going to look at every single country in the world … this guy [President Donald Trump] is sending them back,” Biden said, promising to extend the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program on his first day in office — one of several such first-day promises Biden has made.
Garcia-Navarro followed up, asking whether Biden would attempt to restore the Obama-Biden administration’s policy of improving relations with communist Cuba.
“Yes,” he said.
Biden then went on to add:
“And by the way, w hat you all know, but most people don’t know, unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community, with incredibly different attitudes about different things … it’s a very diverse community.”
Biden attempted to explain that point by arguing that Latinos in Florida and Arizona had different views on immigration.
Garcia-Navarro did not ask Biden why he thought the black community was not diverse. She moved on to a different topic.
I think there are a number of black conservatives who might argue that the African American community is diverse and quite capable of thinking as individuals rather as a monolithic group.
