She hit him back HARD.
During her appearance at the Democratic National Convention, actress Kerry Washington hit back at Biden after his statement saying that the black community was not “diverse.”
Washington stated that she knows for a fact that the black community is “hugely diverse.”

Washington said, “The black community in this country is hugely diverse. On my father’s side, I’m descended from African Americans who came from slave ships that landed in South Carolina and who were part of the great migration north that has played such a defining role in who we are as a nation. On my mother’s side, my grandparents came here as immigrants, part of a rich history that has also defined America. They immigrated to this country from the West Indies through Ellis Island in the 1920s.”
After his statement, Biden also had to double back and tried clarifying by writing:
Throughout my career I’ve witnessed the diversity of thought, background, and sentiment within the African American community. It’s this diversity that makes our workplaces, communities, and country a better place.
