Joe Biden Says ‘Poor Kids Are Just As Bright’ As White Kids

Joe Biden told the Asian & Latino Coalition in Des Moines, Iowa, that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”

The former vice president said this while on a stop during his four-day Iowa campaign tour.

“We should challenge students in these school and 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.”

After hesitant clapping from the audience, he tried to fix his gaffe. “Wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids — no, I really mean it. But think how we think about it,” Biden said. “We think how we’re going to dumb it down. They can do anything anybody else can do given a shot.”

Biden’s deputy campaign manager, Kate Bedingfield, responded to the incident, saying, “[Biden] misspoke and immediately corrected himself during a refrain he often uses.”

Biden is well known for his gaffes. In the previous Democratic debates, he asked voters to go to Joe at 30330. He obviously meant voters should text Joe to 30330.

So far, no 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls have commented on Biden’s remarks in Iowa.

    This fuckhead is way to ignorant to be anything more than a fucking trash collector.

      Too bad you can not leave a reply without using filthy language.
      Can you reply in a sentence without filthy language? Try it.

      Mitch McConnell is an old man that just fractured his shoulder.
      He has pain, he is uncomfortable and needs caring words now.
      How would you feel if he was your father or even yourself and
      young people came to your home to harass you in his condition?

      I hope this never happens to you or your family. You should
      apologize to him. Try being a man.

    I spent five years getting through four years of college. Wher do I fall in Biden’s idea of smart?

    An IQ is more than just an inherited thing. The food a kid eats growing up, the discipline he receives and follows from a “present” father and mother and the friends he makes plus a multitude of other factors, environmental and otherwise, determine a “working IQ”.

    Inner city kids have most of these factors working against them. Most inner city schools have a near zero graduation record and most who graduate have trouble reading and understanding the written or spoken word . . . . that is, other than their “Gangster Rap Music” which is designed to reduce IQ.

      Sad, but true, and inner-city is not limited to minorities. There are plenty of children in the inner-city of all skin colors.

      A psychologist you are not. The concept (and that’s all it is) of IQ has long been buried and replaced with a much more suitable idea, that of readiness to learn, speed of learning, retention of learning, and application of learning. Slow learners learn as much, it just takes them longer to master the concepts they are learning. But now to “gramps” Biden and his slip of the old tongue. He said what he meant but was too timid to spell it out. Poor old senile has been.

      Nobody in their right mind WOULD, Donald! But then, those in their right mind are not Democrats!

    When Barry Obughole was looking for a VP, he asked, who is the dumbest DemonRAT the party has to offer. Joe raised his hand!
