Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Monday said the infrastructure bill will address the racist highway design meant to block black and brown kids from being bussed to the beach.
The program, dubbed “Reconnecting Communities,” will address racial inequities in the nation’s highway design.
“If an underpass was constructed such that a bus carrying mostly Black and Puerto Rican kids to a beach, […] in New York was designed too low for it to pass by, that that obviously reflects racism that went into those design choices,” Buttigieg said on Monday.
“I don’t think we have anything to lose by confronting that simple reality and I think we have everything to gain by acknowledging it and then dealing with it…” he added.

Meanwhile, cargo ships are still anchored off the coast of California because there aren’t enough workers or truck drivers to transport product.
Shelves are empty, prices of commodities are rising and Buttigieg comes back from paternity leave to talk about racist underpasses.
