The following article, Flashback: Biden Said Iowa Schools Are Better Than DC’s Due to Low Black Population, was first published on Flag And Cross.
*Originally published in 2019* That title is no joke. Current 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden actually said exactly what is written in the headline above. How does he keep getting away with this stuff?
Life is good for a progressive Democrat.
From Daily Wire:
Declared 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden’s lengthy record bit him in the behind again on Thursday, as racially charged comments from Biden back in 2007 began to recirculate online.
When Biden was asked by The Washington Post about the discrepancy in school performance in Iowa compared to schools in Washington, D.C., the Democrat cited the high population of African-Americans and other minorities in the D.C. area.
Biden said, “There’s less than one percent of the population of Iowa that is African American. There is probably less than four of five percent that are minorities. What is in Washington? So look, it goes back to what you start off with, what you’re dealing with.”
He added, “When you have children coming from dysfunctional homes, when you have children coming from homes where there’s no books, where the mother from the time they’re born doesn’t talk to them — as opposed to the mother in Iowa who’s sitting out there and talks to them, the kid starts out with a 300-word larger vocabulary at age three. Half this education gap exists before the kid steps foot in the classroom.”
Although Biden firmly remains the 2020 Democrat frontrunner, he may not find himself in that position for very long.
Day after day, year after year, the former vice president finds a way to commit a bigger gaffe.
For President Trump, Biden is the gift that keeps on giving.
From Free Beacon:
Former vice president Joe Biden cited his work in the Obama administration helping “women of color” from “the hood” learn how to code on Friday.
Biden, who announced his bid for the 2020 presidential nomination last month, told an Iowa audience it was important for American workers displaced by globalization to adapt to the new, tech-centered economy. To illustrate the point, Biden described a visit he made to Detroit, Mich., as vice president where he saw first hand how local entrepreneurs trained citizens from economically distressed communities to “code.”
Biden: “Through a program we had, through community colleges, we said look put together a program for us where we can teach people how to code. We went out, literally into the hood, and they found, turns out, 54 [individuals], they happened to be all women, the vast majority were women of color, no one with more than a high school degree, aged 24-to-54, and almost a third of them only had a GED.”
Back in 2014, Biden spoke at the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
Joe made it abundantly clear, noting that illegal aliens are already American citizens.
Biden: “You know, 11 million people live in the shadows. I believe they’re already American citizens. These people are just waiting, waiting for a chance to contribute fully. And by that standard, 11 million undocumented aliens are already Americans, in my view.”
