(FreedomJournal.org)- Did you hear Joe Biden tell a journalist that black people don’t think differently recently? No, really, that’s what he said.
During an interview with Lulu Garcia-Navarro on NPR, Biden said that African Americans are not as diverse as the Latino community in terms of attitudes and believes.
“And, by the way, what 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,” he said. “With incredible different attitudes about different things.”

Can you believe that? It just goes to show how the Democrats think about black voters as a monolith with loyalty to the Democratic Party. It’s probably not surprising given the same man once said that “you ain’t black” if you can’t decide between him and President Donald Trump.
President Donald Trump, naturally, fought back. The president that delivered the best-ever black employment numbers told his Twitter followers on Friday that the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee is “no longer worthy of the Black Vote!”
After yesterday’s statement, Sleepy Joe Biden is no longer worthy of the Black Vote!

Joe Biden was forced to issue a statement, but it’s immediately clear he didn’t write it. In a Twitter thread, Biden acknowledged that he “made some comments about diversity in the African American and Latino communities” that he wants to clarify, but he didn’t clarify them at all.
The statement simply said that he didn’t mean to suggest that the African American community is a monolith, and then failed to explain what he did actually mean. What else could he have meant?
“Throughout my career I’ve witnessed the diversity of thought, background, and sentiment within the African American community,” he added.
At no point did Biden apologize, despite the fact that he recognized he said it. How does this guy keep getting away with saying terrible things like this?
