Former failed contender for the Democratic Presidential nomination and current Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg unveiled a new billion dollar scheme on Thursday designed to make America’s roads less racist.

As The Daily Caller reports:


U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg launched a $1 billion project on Thursday to fix America’s racist infrastructure system.

Buttigieg launched the Reconnecting Communities program, a “first-of-its-kind” anti-racist infrastructure project aimed at rebuilding communities that were “racially segregated or divided by road projects,” reported the Associated Press.

The program gives states financial support for five years from the project’s $1 billion budget to help reconnect primarily low-income, African-American communities negatively affected by the massive 1950s expansion of the interstate highway system, reported the AP.

“Prior to 2021, the idea that we would deal with highway infrastructure that has divided communities was very much a fringe idea,” Crowther said. “The Biden administration has really transformed that into mainstream thinking. We are thinking now this is something that is possible — that you can remove a highway and instead build safe streets that are walkable, add housing and address other community needs besides travel time.”

 

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had previously mocked the idea that roads could be racist, calling it ‘some weird stuff.’

Democrats, by far, are the most stupid human beings that live on this Planet. As long as they are in charge, we can count on this country going down to the dumps. There on only two Democrats to my knowledge that are sane and I think most know who that is. The rest are just money wasters and love spending it as long it’s not out of their pocket. Come on 2024.
