ATLANTA (AP) — Democratic presidential Joe Biden again waded into controversy over how he discusses race and ethnicity, as he compared the relative diversity of the Black and Hispanic populations in the United States.

He said in an NPR interview with a Latina reporter released Thursday: “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.”

He later clarified his remarks, saying he did not intend to cast Black Americans as a “monolith.”

It’s the latest example of Biden attempting to discuss race and ethnicity in a nuanced way only to draw negative attention in his race against President Donald Trump.
