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

2439

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.

    • 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.

  1. 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.

  2. Apparently, there are no poor “white kids” according to racist Biden. Anyone ignorant to vote for this imbecile should have their head examined. After all, he was VP when Common Core was introduced to dumb kids down.

  3. Biden wouldn’t say this to you but I will says it for him. You stupid Trump losers voted for the dumbest, classless, money grubby dog.
    An embarrassment all over the world, Kiss my ass!

  4. Well Joe, first off, there are almost certainly more white, poor children than “people of color” to use the latest liberal BS. Assuming that poor kids are not white is racist as hell. Assuming that there aren’t any “people of color” with money is, again, racist as hell. Please Joe, if you can’t speak facts, STFU.

    • Being poor is color blind. Joe truly should keep his trap shut because he spews racist remarks and I am offended. Being poor is color blind. I am a person of color and dare I say, not poor and have a college degree.

  5. Sleepy Joe said democrats choose truth over the facts…which facts are obvious truth.. Now he shows how raciest he & the BuckDems really are…what an idiot!

  6. HE IS OUT OF TOUCH AND OUT OF HIS MIND HE DOES NOT KNOW THAT THERE ARE POOR WHITE KIDS OUT HERE AS WELL . POOR KIDS FROM ALL RACE .KEEP THIS DUMB OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE . AND MY LAST COMMENT JEST LIKE THIS ONE WAS NOT POSTED . A ERROR IT SAID . I WILL GET A PIC OF THIS ONE AND WILL POST ON ALL SITS IF I AM BLOCKED BY THIS ONE SIDED MEDIA AGAIN .

  7. I rtmber when integration started the idea was if black kids were put in with kids they would come to the same level as the white kids. Alas that is not what happened the white kids saw less effort was needed and quit working so hard and slaked off and the whole system dropped to the level of the level the black could achieve so integration did not only fail the black kids but also the white kids
    EVERYT9GONE SANK TO THE SAME LEVEL

  8. Perhaps you should read your post Deborah Evans before you post it. Then decide to post something that doesn’t make you look as stupid (as you obviously are). You must be an example of a poor kid that suffers from a lack of education and IQ.

  9. Joe needs to give it up and get the HELL out of the way. He is so stupid and I just don’t know how he even got to be VP. What a joke he is! He doesn’t know how to talk or think before he opens his mouth. Get a Life!
