Default Biden says 'poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids'

More racist than anything Trumpo has said...

Biden says 'poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids'

Quote:
Former Vice President Joe Biden told a crowd in Iowa on Thursday that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids," an awkward gaffe that came during a conversation about discrimination faced by low-income students.

“We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,” Biden, who is running for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, said during a town hall in Des Moines with the Asian and Latino Coalition.

He paused, then quickly clarified, “wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids.”
“No, I really mean it, but think how we think about it,” he said.

Though Biden's remarks were greeted with applause in the room, President Donald Trump's 2020 campaign quickly pounced on the gaffe, tweeting out video of the speech.

“Yikes...have fun mitigating that one,” Andrew Clark, the campaign’s rapid response director, tweeted.
Number of media calling Biden a racist?...Sorry...Can't count that low...

I understand everyone immediately says "gaffe" when Biden speaks, but there's a big difference between a "gaffe" and actually saying how one really feels...

Example...

In the 2008 campaign, Obama said he visited 57 states...This is a gaffe...Why?...because no one is dumb enough to believe that Obama MEANT "57 states"...Everyone makes mistakes or lose focus, especially when speaking publicly...

But he ALSO said that small towns "cling to guns and religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

This was NOT a gaffe...It was what he honestly believed, said to a Lefty audience in San Francisco...

...and THAT is what Biden did...He let a moment of truth slip out, and said how he really felt...Even the audience clapped in approval...Were they all "gaffing", too?...

As a career politician Biden has a history of racist remarks as well as working with Democrat segregationists. As Bill Clinton put it in defense of KKK recruiter Robert Byrd, it's all about saying what you need to say to win the next election. The crowd of faithful supporters "knew" what he meant with the patronizing racial slur they have already voluntarily blinded themselves to his dishonesty and patronizing racial rhetoric.

Democrats have to minimize Biden's remarks as a "gaffe" lest their underlying policy of no one succeeds without Federal government intervention be recognized. Notice Biden's abrupt about face on racial busing endorsing Federal dictates reshaping school districts to meet racial quotas.

“poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,"

rich kids are just as dim and just as talentless as black kids.

Being racist is fun, isn't it Joe Biden?

Biden has had far to many "gaffes" like this in the past. It does show an underlining prejudice.
But here's the thing if Trump had said it, his fans would deny that it's "racism".
or try and spin it pointing to all his black friends etc as proof otherwise. does Biden have any black friends?
the sad fact is this type of thinking is not Atypical in America no matter what political label the person puts on.

Is Biden a Klansman?... no. Is he a white supremacist?... no.
Does he have some level of racist ideas or low level prejudice... maybe even unconscious and unwanted... that comes to the surface now and then. ... Yes.
Is that unusual in America... no.
Do many Americans want to deny it... pretend it's not a real issue that affects anything, yes.

The comment begins with a recognition of Biden's so-called gaffes being reflective of his underlying real convictions but quickly devolves into Obama favorite professor Derrick Bell's unconscious racism demogoguery with projections of Trump supporters excusing his remarks implying racism on their part.

We have seen an unrelenting smear campaign against President Trump smearing him as a white supremacist responsible for the actions of violent psychopaths while Biden's long record of racist remarks is trivialized as gaffes.

Well, I have no idea who Derrick Bell is. And I'm speaking from experience.
having had a few white americans treat/speak to me and my family members in a way that's shows that they really don't think much of blacks in general.
And are completely unaware that they are being offensive, and sometime even think they are being friendly.
It's not something that's hard to see. black and whites all recognize it when it happens.
Biden's comment is typical of it., others are "just as good as white..." " you're one of the good one's" "you're not like..." "I didn't know it was you, I thought..."
etc etc. Not to mention other comment even worse where some folks seem to forget your black all together and say something like.
"I've been surprised, the blacks in this area come here every weekend and never have a fight or shooting... there must be some kind of truce over this area or something..."
and think nothing of it. And don't think it's a racist comment in the least.
And will say loudly that they are NOT racist.
From a older thread, "A Republican women's group in California is the latest GOP organization to be accused of racism against Barack Obama. A mailing distributed by the Chaffey Community Republican Women in October says if Obama is elected his image will appear on food stamps with watermelon and KFC , and not on normal dollar bills like other presidents...link When a black member of the group complained her response was ""I didn't see it the way that it's being taken. I never connected," she said. "It was just food to me. It didn't mean anything else.".
I suspect she'd say she's NOT a racist.
Ignorant, unconscious, stupid, what would you call it AZ?
what would you call it if Joe Biden did it?


So I didn't "devolve" into anything I just made a the broader observation to a fact about American culture.

As far as excusing Trump's similar remarks. Well Sure.
Some have, the Mexican Judge remark is one.
He's been quoted elsewhere saying similar.
and the legal convictions of racist rentals are ignored or not and before investigating made excuses for... like maybe they are "white trash" blacks.

I'd agree that Trump has had unrelenting smear campaign against him. A lot if it unfounded. A lot but not all.
My problem is that folks aren't honest.
they want to paint the other side as Demons or Angels who are ONLY falsely accused,
and frankly its all BS.

some of the things Trump has done and said are in fact As racist as Biden comments and moreso.
But some of the things he's been accused of are false or exaggerated out of proportion.

So i'm not going to give Trump a pass when he's crosses the line, just as you guys aren't giving Biden a pass here.
