New York Gov. Kathy Hochul: Black kids in the Bronx don’t know what the word computer is
05/10/2024 // Kevin Hughes // Views

New York's Democratic Governor Kathy Hochul has stated that black children in the inner city "don't even know what the word computer is."

She made the comment at the Milken Institute Global Conference in California on Monday, May 6, when she was talking about how politicians could extend access to tech jobs for disadvantaged communities. (Related: More anti-vaccine bigotry: New York's Marxist Dem Gov. Kathy Hochul says state will offer full scholarships to 50 young adults but only those who got the COVID jab.)

"Right now, we have young black kids growing up in the Bronx who don't even know what the word computer is. They don't know, they don't know these things," Hochul said.

Her statement went unquestioned by her interviewer but was soon ridiculed online.

Even fellow Dems slam Hochul

New York State Assemblywoman Amanda Septimo, a fellow Democrat who represents the Bronx, called the remark "harmful, deeply misinformed and genuinely appalling."

Septimo moved on to invite Hochul to visit the borough and "experience firsthand the intelligence, resilience and joy that radiate from Bronx children and residents each day."

"B***h, not only do we know what a computer is, we all got one in our pockets. You sound just as racist as S****y Joe Biden did when he said 'poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,'" Florida congressional candidate Lavern Spicer wrote on X.

"I misspoke and I regret it. Of course, black children in the Bronx know what computers are – the problem is that they too often lack access to the technology needed to get on track to high-paying jobs in emerging industries like AI," Hochul said in a statement late Monday.

Hochul's apology has not calmed the surge of criticisms from legislators and citizens alike.

"Of course, Black kids in the Bronx know the word 'computer,'" State Senator Kristen Gonzalez, a Democrat who represents Queens, Manhattan and Brooklyn, wrote on X.

Gonzalez mentioned that the governor's AI initiative failed to involve financing for education and workforce development in underserved communities.

Assemblywoman Karines Reyes, a Bronx Democrat, said she was "deeply disturbed" by Hochul's remarks. "Our children are bright, brilliant, extremely capable and more than deserving of any opportunities that are extended to other kids. Do better," Reyes posted on X.

Assemblyman John Zaccaro, also a Bronx Democrat, said: "Our children, far from being underestimated, are the epitome of brilliance, resilience, and untapped potential. They are not only capable but deserving of every opportunity that their counterparts are offered. It's disheartening to witness such a portrayal that undermines their abilities and aspirations."

Social media users have also criticized Hochul, with many claiming she was "out of touch" with reality and one even branding her a "delusional sociopath."

"Detached from reality is an understatement. Says a lot about the Governor from New York," wrote X user Richard Pierce.

"These Democrat politicians are so disconnected from reality, so caught up in pandering, that they fail to realize how patronizing they come across to their target audience," X user Marc commented.

X user Bob Kain said: "This is about as racist as it gets...not to mention one helluva indictment on NYC public schools." Another X user said Hochul "should resign in disgrace."

A spokesperson for Hochul didn't immediately reply to a request for comment.
