ONN – Joe Biden Is Right: Latinos Are More Diverse Than Blacks Demographically, And U.S. Census Says So
Joe Biden is the focus of a video clip where he says this:
“Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly diverse attitudes about different things,” Biden said. “You go to Florida, you find a very different attitude about immigration than you do in Arizona. So it’s a very diverse community.”
The comment shocked some, but to anyone who’s actually bothered to read the U.S. Census (which, I thought, was required reading in sociology classes), what Biden said was true and no slap to anyone black. Like myself.
What the U.S. Census says is this:
People of Hispanic origin may be of any race. Hispanics can choose one or more race categories, including White, Black or African American, American Indian and Alaska Native, Asian, and Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander.
I thought that was common knowledge. It’s purely shocking to learn how little many people know about their own country. It makes me wonder what they teach kids in school, today.
Note from zennie62Media and Oakland news Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland news Now site and zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
