Watch: Joe Biden Compared African Americans With Latinos
During an interview with Lulu Garcia-Navarro for NPR, Joe bidden compared African and Latino communities and later clarifies the context he was speaking about in twitter. Bidden said, “unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things.”
He expressed that the African American communities lack diversity in the thoughts and experiences, where the Latin American community does. According to the various thoughts and discussions surfing throughout the internet in the last few hours, bidden describes that the African American community as a giant homogenous block with the same ideas and life experience. The complicated equation of the context will be, it will be easy to lose or win them in total. The statement was made when he was talking about immigration.
Despite Biden’s comment about African Americans, they are very diverse and different in the way they identify themselves. This is applicable in terms of class, cultural origins, geography, whether they lived in a former union state or confederated state, countryside, or suburb. He was critically acclaimed for his opinion about the community where he spoke like the black monolithic block belong to Biden or they ain’t black.

Later today, he appeared with an explanation for his cultural remarks about two minority communities in America.
“Earlier today, I made some comments about diversity in the African American, and Latino communities that I want to clarify,” In no way did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith—not by identity, not on issues, not at all. Throughout my career, I’ve witnessed the diversity of thought, background, and sentiment within the African American community.
It’s this diversity that makes our workplaces, communities, and country a better place. My commitment to you is this: I will always listen, I will never stop fighting for the African American community, and I will never stop fighting for a more equitable future.”
