Joe Biden Refers to the Black Community as Monolithic. Twice.
Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden publicly referred to the black community last Thursday as monolithic. Not once, but twice.
On August 6th, the former Vice President was on an NPR program hosted by Lulu Garcia-Navarro. Navarro was asking Biden about issues that pertain or relate to the Latino Community. As Biden was comparing and contrasting the Latino community to the black community he stated, "Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community."
As if that comment wasn't bad enough, here is what he stated at a NALEO conference that same day: "We can build a new administration that reflects the full diversity of our nation, and the full diversity of Latino communities. When I mean full diversity, unlike the African American community and many other communities, you're from everywhere: from Europe, from the tip of South America, all the way to our border with Mexico and in the Carribean. [Latinos are] of different backgrounds, different ethnicities, but they are all Latinos."
This is a clear depiction of how the Democrat Party views the Black community. Joe thinks he has the Black vote secured simply because he views them as having only one perspective and one opinion. In reality, there shouldn't be a "Black" opinion, a "Hispanic" opinion, or a "Latino" opinion because people are much more complex than that. Biden is taking the Black community's vote for granted, and if he keeps making stupid and offensive comments like this, it could get him in big trouble.
But what does Biden do to address his insensitive comments? He has his PR person tweet an "apology" - an apology that doesn't clarify whatsoever his disrespectful and offenseive comments about the Black community.
Why did you say it, former Vice President Biden? Twice?
If Trump or a Republican made these comments, we know they'd be viewed as absolutely racist and there would be countless demands for the Republican to resign from office or drop out of the race at this point in the game.
But what do we hear from the media on this?
These stupid and offensive comments remind me of the racist comment he made to an Indian American in 2008, saying you can't go to a 7/11 or Dunkin' Donuts wihtout having a slight Indian accent. People call Trump a racist, but who's being racist here? Biden's comments have insulted individual Black Americans for nothing more than their race. And that's pathetic.
This is yet another example of how the Radical Left pits one group of Americans against one another based upon race or class or religion or whatever. All Americans - including former Vice President Joe Biden - should be able to agree that this is unacceptable and harmful to our consitutitional republic.
A man can dream, can't he?
