Former Vice President Joe Biden said that the Latino community is typically far more diverse than the black community during an interview that aired Thursday.
The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee spoke at the 2020 National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) and National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) Joint Virtual Convention. The virtual convention saw four different reporters ask Biden questions, many of which were focused around black and Latino communities.
Lulu Garcia-Navarro, co-host of NPR’s “Weekend Edition,” asked Biden midway through the interview about re-engaging with Cuba. Biden replied that he would absolutely engage before saying that the Latino community is “incredibly diverse” – unlike, according to him, much of the black community.
