(BREAKING WIDE) – Joe Biden Causes Uproar over Comments on Latino and Black Community.
At the 2020 National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) and National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) Joint Virtual Convention, Joe Biden remarks that the latino community has more diversity than the black community on Thursday.
The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee said that “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.
The former vice president made the remark when asked by a journalist, Lulu Garcia-Navarro if his stance on re-engaging with Cuba will be because Cubans are being deported while Venezuelans for instance are being welcomed. Biden said he will be re-engaging Cuba.
Joe Biden also said “when you go to Florida, you find a very different attitude about immigration in certain places than you do when you’re in Arizona.” “So it’s a very different, a very diverse community.”
But comments about race however are always very sensitive, Biden is already receiving backlash for his comments. As someone who served under the first Black American President, he should have known that the black community won’t take such comments likely, not when elections are around the corner.
Joe Bidden has further made more comments to clarify his statements as members of the black community are furious and they’ve not yet forgotten the “you ain’t black comment” earlier on.
