Joe Biden Iowa Speech

Democratic front-runner Joe Biden raised eyebrows on the campaign trail after what “appeared to be a slip of the tongue” during a speech in Iowa.

Full Quote:
“We should challenge students in these schools that have advanced placement programs in these schools,” Biden said. “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.”

What Biden said there was completely true IMO and the fact that people are nitpicking that and trying to say it implies that he’s racist are just biased. It’s obvious that white people are perceived to be more privileged in the US compared to underrepresented populations.

It just comes to show that there are some people that will simply nitpick everything you do like a little bitch even if you are telling the truth.

It just amazes me how some of the self proclaimed “realists” refuse to acknowledge reality sometimes…

Then why did he use “poor” instead of a racial group or “rich” instead of white? He fucked up, old man should sit at home.

Every candidate ever, regardless of age or affiliation, has said things he or she would like to go back and say differently.

I think we knew what he meant though.
