So, i’ll let you be the judge on this one. Was Joe Biden trying to make a race-based distinction or a socio-economic one.
From The 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.
“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 told the paper.
At the time, the Post chalked up Biden’s comments as a “stumble” — leeway the mainstream press would not likely afford to anyone on the Right, certainly not in 2019.
The Democrat went on to discuss “dysfunctional homes” in minority communities and suggested minority mothers don’t talk to their children “from the time they’re born.”
“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,” Biden said. “Half this education gap exists before the kid steps foot in the classroom.”
The Democrat’s “campaign quickly sought to clarify the remarks, saying in a statement that the senator was not making a ‘race-based distinction,’ but rather a ‘socio-economic’ one.” What’s your take on this, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT IN THE COMMENT SECTION BELOW…
