During a White House press briefing on Monday, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, fresh off his more than 2-month maternity leave, celebrated the provisions in President Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill that addressed infrastructure the federal government deems racist.
“I’m still surprised that some people were surprised that when I pointed to the fact that if a highway was built for the purpose of deciding a white and a black neighborhood,” Buttigieg said. “Sometimes it was federal dollars that divided a community, often along racial lines,” he said, pointing to “racism that went into those design choices.”
After a fawning “reporter” asked Buttigieg how he could “deconstruct racism that was build into the roadways” — a ridiculous notion — Buttigieg replied, “I don’t think we have anything to lose by confronting that simple reality and I think we have everything to gain by acknowledging it and then dealing with it.”
No administration has done more for minorities in this country than Donald Trump, and he did it without pursuing stupid, expensive boondoggles like “deconstructing” racist highways. He did it by paving the way for minority Americans to succeed. Buttigieg, like everyone else in the Biden administration, has no clue how the real world works; they are focused instead on social justice fantasies like racist highways or even, as worthless VP Kamala Harris suggested during a recent event, racist trees.
All this does is reinforce a false sense of victimhood in minorities while doing nothing to actually help them — but that’s the Democrat way.
