Joe Biden Says 'Poor Kids' Just As Bright As 'White Kids' In Iowa Speech ... after saying he chose “truth over facts” at another campaign speech.

Truth over facts? Translation: Whatever Biden believes to be the truth over actual facts.

He can't. The majority of whom you're referring to as "black" kids....were born here. This is their country more so then those that are coming across the borders illegally by the thousands.

Bright students come in all colors was the message.
He mentioned white, black, and Asian, all considered 'races' in common parlance. I think he wanted to say wealthy first, but said white instead. In the world of gotcha politics and edited comments, he got caught this time. Tough.

Yup, I noticed that too. He caught himself, and so then he mentioned other races immediately. He meant to say wealthy at first, but slipped up and he caught himself right after it happened.

He said what he was thinking

Makes me wonder, why are presidents usually such old guys?! Would make more sense to pick a middle-aged person, like in his or her 50's, rather than a senior citizen...

Every time they do the "50's" thing, people don't like it and vote in the old guy. The only truly successful people who can prove they will always be successful are old rich guys over 70.

Biden is right.

Since white people are the job creators they are also the job deniers. Just look behind Trump at who is saying send them back. The people are all lilly white.

Black folks have quite a bit of experience with this kind of thing ,you might say they have sixth sense when it comes to who is a racist and who isn't. Why the far right won't trust them on this is bewildering.

In order to even the score, we must now give the black man a head start, or even hold the white man back, to even the race.

I dont buy that, I dont feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather.I feel responsible for what the situation is today, for the sins of my own generation. And Ill be damned if I feel responsible to pay for what happened 300 years ago.


The always hypocritical left would attempt to crucify Trump if he had EVER said anything like this.
Yep. Biden in a direct quote, from WaPo:
