Small town mayor-turned-Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said he was “shocked by how controversial it was” when he talked about how highways are “racist.”
Buttigieg, one of the most incompetent people serving in Biden’s Cabinet (and that’s saying a lot), previously appeared on MSNBC’s Politics Nation to discuss racist roads with host Al Sharpton.
Buttigieg told Al Sharpton that traffic fatalities happen because of racism and discrimination.
“We’ve got a crisis when it comes to roadway fatalities in America,” Buttigieg said. “We lose about 40,000 people every year. It’s a level that is comparable to gun violence – and we see a lot of racial disparities. Black and brown Americans and tribal citizens and rural residents are much more likely to lose their lives…”
Buttigieg continued, “There are a lot of reason related to discrimination….even related to the way the roads are designed and who has access to a safe street design that’s got crosswalks and good lighting.”
Roads are racist according to Pete Buttigieg.
And now he’s gaslighting people who questioned his absurd claims.
“I’m shocked by how controversial it was when I made a reference to the simple fact that a lot of black neighborhoods got wiped out by the way highways were built. And I didn’t bring that up because I wanted everybody to feel bad about it. I brought it up because we can do something about it,” Buttigieg said.
