Joe Biden doesn’t think minorities are smart enough to access the internet. This seems racist.
According to The Daily Wire:
President Joe Biden suggested during a CNN town hall event this week that some minorities do not know how to “get online to determine” what they needed to do to get a vaccine for COVID-19.
Biden made the remark in response to a question from a member of the medical community that attended the event and told Biden that the pandemic has had a “significant impact on black Americans” in terms of exacerbating “racial disparities in healthcare” as “less than three percent of blacks and less than five percent of Hispanics” have been vaccinated so far.
After saying that it was a priority and talking about some of the steps his administration is taking to address the situation, Biden shifted to talking about issues that those communities are facing online.
“The other portion is a lot of people don’t know how to register,” Biden said. “Not everybody in the community, in the Hispanic and the African-American community, particularly in rural areas that are distant and/or inner city districts, know how to use … know how to get online to determine how to get in line for that COVID vaccination at the Walgreens or at the particular store.”
Much of America has problems accessing the internet, it is a broadband issue that needs to be addressed. But this is akin to the Democrats arguing in court that minorities are too stupid to obtain drivers’ licenses and that is why voter id laws are racist.
