Earlier today, presidential nominee Joe Biden made some racist comments. Now, he said, he didn't mean what he said. In fact, he's apologized for it. Kind of.

He spoke about the lack of diversity of thought within the black community in the US, while noting that those in the Hispanic community have wide ideological diversity.

He said that he did not mean to say that the African American community in the US was ideological monolithic—even though he said that. But in clarifying his statement, he said pretty much nothing.

Instead, he touted his career as an advocate for black Americans, and said that he would always listen. In trying to walk back his earlier comments, he said he did not believe what he said earlier, which leads one to wonder why he said it.

His statement earlier today was rather definitive. He told journalists "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."

Biden has made repeated gaffes about race during the few times he's spoken publicly during this election season. He said earlier this spring that African Americans who don't vote for him "ain't black."
