During an interview shown below, Joe Biden claimed that “unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community.”
According to Breitbart News, Biden was addressing the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) and National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) Joint Virtual Convention.
National Public Radio’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro asked Biden about whether he would stop the deportation of Cubans.
“I’m going to look at every single country in the world … this guy [President Donald Trump] is sending them back,” Biden said.
He also promised to extend the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program on his first day in office.
Garcia-Navarro asked if Biden would attempt to restore the Obama-Biden administration’s policy of improving relations with communist Cuba.
“Yes,” he said.
“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 … it’s a very diverse community.”

Biden attempted to explain that point by arguing that Latinos in Florida and Arizona had different views on immigration.
Garcia-Navarro did not ask Biden why he thought the black community was not diverse. She moved on to a different topic.
Coincidentally, the Biden campaign released an ad Thursday aimed at black voters that likened President Trump to the “violent racists” of the Jim Crow past.
