Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg spins the Big Wheel of Random Oppression to determine the latest thing that's racist, and it clicks to a stop on…highways! Yes, racism is “physically built” into the US highway system.
It is true that you’re allowed to drive on the black parts of the highways, but you’re supposed to stay off the white stripes, so obviously there’s racism built into the highways. That wasn't what he was talking about, but I expect it to come next.
Meanwhile, a minor correction: Buttigieg claimed that the Biden “infrastructure” bill would add 19 million jobs to the economy. Only if you count the 16.3 million jobs that would be created by the economy even if the bill doesn’t pass at all.

If you are going to mention that Buttigieg is claiming racism is built into the highway, you should link to whatever article has that quote.

When will they stop playing the "race card"?
