Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thegatewaypundit.com: “Corrupt Media Hid This Til Now: Joe Biden Told Group of Black Mayors Last Year that Black "Parents Can't Read or Write Themselves"”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The story, which detailed Biden’s precarious and unsteady positioning among South Carolina’s black voters after devastating losses in the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary, said that Biden’s literacy comment “shocked and frustrated many in the close-knit group.”

According to data on adult literacy from the National Center for Education Statistics from 2014, white Americans made up 33% of low-skilled adults, with Hispanic adults accounting for 35% of the group. That year, black Americans made up 23% of low-literacy adults.

In a statement to The Times, Biden’s campaign said, “The Vice President regularly talks about how his father’s experience has shaped the way he feels about and views the relationship between parents and their children’s learning.”
