While he’s inching closer to accepting the Democratic nomination for the Presidential race in 2020, Former Vice President Joe Biden has been doing what appears to be more media appearances, but they’re not necessarily gaffe or cringe free.
That was the case in an interview Biden did this week with Yahoo News in which he suggested that the African American community lacks a diversity of thought.
“What you all know, but most people don’t know,” 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.”
Biden made the statement in response to a question as to whether he’ll “reengage” with Cuba and how he’ll address the concerns with the Latino community in America.
It’s not the first time Biden has made racially insensitive comments. During an earlier appearance on “The Breakfast Club,” Biden told Black listeners that if they don’t vote for him then “you ain’t Black.”

Philly Mayor says only police officers should be allowed to own guns like ‘in Canada’
Two Philadelphia police officers were shot near a Fourth of July event on Monday evening, leaving the mayor supporting demolishing the Second Amendment. In a grandstanding speech just outside the hospital where the two police officers were being treated for gunshot injuries, Mayor Jim Kenney spoke about his concern…for himself.
“I’m concerned every single day” said Kenney. “I’ll be happy when I’m not the mayor” he added so that he does not have to deal with gun violence. He also told the group of reporters that only police officers should be allowed to own guns.
In addition to the Second Amendment, Kenney took the opportunity to knock the Supreme Court of the United States as well. “It was a chilled back day, beautiful weather. But we live in America where we have the Second Amendment and we have the Supreme Court of the United States telling everybody they can carry a gun wherever they want,” he said.
Rather, the mayor suggests we take after our northern neighbors in Canada. “I was in Canada two weeks ago and never thought about a gun,” he said. “The only people I knew who had guns in Canada were police officers.”
“That’s the way it should be here,” Kenney stated, so that he can enjoy events. “I don’t enjoy the Fourth of July…I didn’t enjoy the Democratic National Convention. I didn’t enjoy the NFL draft. I’m waiting for something bad to happen all the time.”
“Until Americans decide that they want to give up the guns and give up the opportunity to get guns, we’re going to have this problem,” he told reporters. He then suggested he would unilaterally strip citizens of the right to own firearms — if he had the authority to do so.
“If I had the ability to take care of guns, I would,” he said. “But the legislature won’t let us. Congress won’t let us. The governor does the best he can [and] the attorney general does the best he can, but this is a gun country.”
“It’s crazy,” Kenney added. “We’re the most armed country in world history and we’re one of the least safest (sic).”
