Biden Proud His Program Taught Women ‘in the Hood’ to Code
Democrat presidential hopeful Joe Biden bragged to voters in Des Moines, Iowa that “women of color” in “the hood” learned to code thanks to an educational program he supported.
“Through a program, we had through community colleges, we can teach people how to code,” Biden said. “We went out, literally into the hood, and they found, turns out, 54 [people], they happened to be all women, the vast majority were women of color, no more than a high school degree, aged 25-54, and a third of them only had GEDs.”
Biden has told variations of this story on other occasions, always using the word “hood” to describe urban Detroit neighborhoods.
