On Wednesday, Joe Biden gave a speech about how his administration is combating inflation and lowering costs for families. At one point in this speech, Biden made an odd comment about how paying extra for more legroom on an airplane is “unfair” to “people of color.”
Now, according to Biden, paying more money for a better product/service is racist.
“Some airlines, if you want six more inches between you and the seat in front, you pay more money. But you don’t know it until you purchase your ticket,” said Biden, asserting that people don’t know that more legroom costs more money until they’ve already purchased a ticket.
However, airlines do provide an option to purchase a specific seat before completing your booking.
“Look, folks, these are junk fees,” Biden continued.
He then suggested that people of color cannot afford seat upgrades, saying, “They’re unfair and they hit marginalized Americans the hardest, especially low-income folks and people of color.”
For some reason, Biden includes “people of color” in addition to “low-income folks” because, for some reason, race has to be a factor in absolutely everything that the Biden regime does.
