Biden insults blacks, lauds Latinos

Joe Biden announcesPresumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden stereotyped the black community as being of one mindset, while contrasting it with Latinos in America, who he said were “incredibly” diverse in thought.

Interviewed by NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro at the convention of the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, the former vice president was pressed whether he would work to restore America’s relations with communist Cuba if elected – as he did with former President Barack Obama – noting how his decision would sway Florida’s Cuban American voters.

"Yes, yes," Biden assured, according to a Fox News report. "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 with incredibly different attitudes about different things.”

Not stopping there, the controversial Democrat elaborated on his discriminatory point of view.

"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 diverse community," Biden continued.

The far-left NPR reporter quickly jumped to another topic after the ex-VP continued to bury himself – not asking him why he did not see the black community as diverse.

Accepted racism?

After being portrayed by the Biden campaign and mainstream media as being racist for its stand on illegal immigration and its support of law enforcement, the Trump campaign took to social media to point out the racist undertone of Biden’s comments on blacks.

“Uhh … did Joe Biden just say that black people are all the same?" the president’s campaign tweeted.

Trump himself also chimed in on the latest indiscretion uttered by his Democratic rival – who later apologized for pigeonholing blacks as one general group, instead of as individuals with their own diverse opinions.

“Did you watch that clip?” Trump posed to reporters at the White House, according to Newsmax. “Joe Biden this morning, he totally disparaged and insulted the black community. What he said is incredible. I don’t know what’s going on with him, but it was a very insulting statement he made. I guess you’ll figure that out – you’ll see it in a little while. It was a great insult to the black community."

Trump’s reelection campaign senior advisor Katrina Pierson described Biden’s comments as “disgusting” and “racist,” calling upon the media to address Biden’s racist remarks and to stop ignoring or concealing his disparaging words against the black community.

“Hey media – are you guys gonna cover this, or continue to pretend that this is acceptable?” an outraged Pierson asked in a tweet Thursday.

Members of the media also pointed out how blatantly insensitive and biased his remark was.

"There's no way to dress this up, folks," journalist Jeryl Bier posted on Twitter.

However, in the midst of his own discriminating lingo, Biden took the opportunity to try and paint Trump as racist when asked if he would cease the deportation of Cubans who entered the United States illegally – in the event he wins the election.

“I’m going to look at every single country in the world,” Biden vowed, according to Breitbart News, before vowing to extend the Temporary Protected Status program on his first day as president. “This guy [Trump] is sending them back.”

Despite Biden’s consistent disparaging remarks against blacks – such as his fairly recent quip at African American radio personality, Charlamagne the God, saying, “If you don’t vote for me, you ain’t black” – he continues to paint a racist picture of Trump – who drove the unemployment rate of African Americans to its lowest point in history.

“[T]he Biden campaign released an ad Thursday aimed at black voters that likened President Trump to the ‘violent racists’ of the Jim Crow past,” Breitbart noted.

Snappy Joe …

In addition to upsetting many in the black community, Biden himself became enraged when African American CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett asked him if he has taken a cognitive test – like the one Trump boasted he took … and passed.

"No, I haven't taken a test – why the hell would I take a test?” a testy Biden shot back, according to Fox. “Come on, man – that's like saying you – before you got on this program – you take a test where you're taking cocaine or not. What do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?"
