Joe Biden Tries to 'Clarify' Remarks About African Americans; No Apology

Former Vice President Joe Biden attempted to “clarify” his remarks earlier Thursday about African Americans, in which he said — twice, before two separate audiences — that they were not “diverse,” unlike the Latino community.

On Thursday morning, in a pre-recorded video interview with the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) and National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ), Biden said: “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.”

Earlier today, I made some comments about diversity in the African American and Latino communities that I want to clarify.

Throughout my career I’ve witnessed the diversity of thought, background, and sentiment within the African American community.
