CRINGE: Joe Biden Talks About Helping Women Of Color From ‘The Hood’ Learn To Code (VIDEO)

During a campaign stop this week, Joe Biden spoke about a time he helped find someone capable of running the computerized city lighting system in Detroit. He described going into ‘the hood’ to find women of color who could do the job.

This is the sort of cringe-worthy moment that will happen again and again for as long as Joe Biden is in the 2020 race. Get used to it Democrats.

Former vice president Joe Biden cited his work in the Obama administration helping “women of color” from “the hood” learn how to code on Friday.

Biden, who announced his bid for the 2020 presidential nomination last month, told an Iowa audience it was important for American workers displaced by globalization to adapt to the new, tech-centered economy. To illustrate the point, Biden described a visit he made to Detroit, Mich., as vice president where he saw first hand how local entrepreneurs trained citizens from economically distressed communities to “code.”

“Through a program we had, through community colleges, we said look put together a program for us where we can teach people how to code,” Biden told the audience. “We went out, literally into the hood, and they found, turns out, 54 [individuals], they happened to be all women, the vast majority were women of color, no one with more than a high school degree, aged 24-to-54, and almost a third of them only had a GED.”
