Vice President Kamala Harris says our economic systems are racist, and now President Biden is saying our highways are racist. If they keep at it, America will be one big pile of rubble because of the Left’s perceived racism.
“The idea that some U.S. highways were built to hurt minority neighborhoods is not new, but in 2021 they are getting new attention from both the Biden administration and a state legislator in California who wants a law to prevent freeway expansion in certain areas of the state,” reported Breitbart News.
“A provision in President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better Act is called Reconnecting Communities, and it is a $1 billon program,” reports Breitbart News.
Liam Dillon with the Los Angeles Times, who investigated whether people were displaced to build roads, said:
“The point of it is to potentially even tear down freeways, sort of address some of the harms from racist planning decisions with respect to where freeways were cited in the past and sort of reconnect, as the program states. But, you know, that amount again, only $1 billion, sort of pales in comparison to the potential hundreds of billions of dollars that are essentially unrestricted where state transportation departments could use it to further expand freeways and, in many cases, continue to displace families.”
“It’s very concerning,” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said. “It’s something that we need to pay attention to so that these dollars are always doing good, not harm, that they are connecting, not dividing.”
“We need to make sure that every penny of the federal money that’s going out here goes out on equitable terms and in inclusive ways,” Buttigieg said of the Build Back Better provision.
