During an interview on Thursday, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden continued his pattern of racially offensive “gaffes” when he said, “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.”

Biden doubled down on his comments later that day, telling a Latino group, “Now what I mean full diversity, unlike the African American community and many other communities, you’re from everywhere. You’re from Europe, from the tip of South America, all the way to our border in Mexico, and the Caribbean. And different backgrounds, different ethnicities, but all Latinos. We’re gonna get a chance to do that if we win in November.”
This continues a pattern of racially offensive comments made by Biden. For example, in an interview earlier this week with a black journalist, Biden said, “No, I haven’t taken a [cognitive] test. Why the hell would I take a test? C’mon man. That’s like saying you, before you got in this program, if you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think huh? Are you a junkie?”
I would like to note the racist undertones of Joe “racial jungle” Biden accusing a black man of being a junkie!

In an interview in May with radio host Charlamagne tha God, Biden said, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black.”
This is disgusting.

At an event for minority voters last year, Biden said that “poor kids are just as bright” as “white kids.”
