In this episode of Joe Biden’s Wack Priorities: Structural Racism Edition…

It’s no secret that Joe Biden is obsessed with all things race. Visions of “white supremacy,” “structural racism,” and “systemic racism” dance carelessly about the 46th president’s addled head, 24×7. In today’s episode, Joe’s visions are about… wait for it… structural racism in Puerto Rico. No, really.

The Biden administration recently gave $2 million to a George Soros-backed nonprofit to stop violent crime in Puerto Rico by teaching the island’s young men about “structural racism and toxic masculinities.”

The mere mention of George Soros — who has a history of backing “woke” prosecutors like Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón and Florida State Attorney Monique Worrell, who made headlines after Keith Moses, who had a long criminal history, went on a killing spree in her district — should raise a red flag for every freedom-loving, law-abiding citizen in America. Worrell had previously refused to prosecute Moses on drug charges, which would’ve likely sent the killer to prison rather than back to the street to commit the heinous murders.

Here’s more on the Biden administration’s Puerto Rican efforts:

Biden’s Justice Department in October awarded the lucrative grant to Taller Salud, a “feminist, culturally specific nonprofit organization” in Puerto Rico. The money comes from the department’s Community-Based Violence Intervention and Prevention Initiative, which aims to address crime through police alternatives.

Taller Salud, which receives funding from liberal billionaire George Soros’s Open Society Foundations, will use the $2 million to further implement its “community violence intervention program,” which includes “public education campaigns” to address “structural racism and toxic masculinities” among Puerto Rican men between the ages of 15 and 30.

This is far from the first time the Biden administration has used taxpayer funds to push progressivism abroad. In May, the U.S. embassy in Brazil announced plans to bankroll English classes for transgender activists. In the Middle East, meanwhile, Biden’s State Department initiated a multimillion-dollar effort to teach Iraqis about gender studies.

The Biden administration has also funded podcasts in foreign nations intended to push listeners to the left, including one in India focused on climate change.

Meanwhile, more than seven in ten Americans believe America is on the wrong track under the disastrous “leadership” [ahem] of Biden.

According to Taller Salud’s website, the program will train a “minimum of 40 young males” annually on “violence interruption” and “conflict mediation,” among other pretend-utopian practices. And get a load of this: The program emphasizes eradicating “structural racism” and street violence by hosting “cultural activities” — including mural painting

Can’t make it up, don’t have to.

If the program reaches its minimum goal of “educating” 120 Puerto Rican men over three years, the training would cost nearly $17,000 per person, which is four times the average cost of a year of community college, and $3,000 more than the per capita annual income in Puerto Rico. 

But, hey— never forget that Democrat programs and initiatives are far more about pandering, exploitation, intentions, and feel-good stuff than about actual results.

The Bottom Line

While Joe Biden and his equally disastrous administration continue to obsess over “white supremacy,” “structural racism,” and “systemic racism,” violent crimes continue to skyrocket in Democrat-run cities across America.

As I reported in early June, ESPN host Stephen A. Smith absolutely went off on black-on-black murders:

When we gonna look at ourselves when it comes to black people being killed in the streets of America? I don’t even want to get into what happened in Chicago, but I have no choice.

It’s not the first time this has happened. It’s been happening year after year after year. Chicago, St. Louis, Baltimore, [and] the list goes on and on. Where’s the noise at? Where’s the protest?

Where’s [the] mainstream media talking about that? Where is it?

Where it is, Stephen A., is feverishly swept under the rug by the Democrat Party and its lapdog media.

Why? Because, as Joe Biden and the Democrats demonstrate, regularly, the real statistics fly in the face of the left wing’s various race-related narratives and get in the way of their efforts to exploit minority voters.
