To help "Make America Greater Than The Bad Orange Man Did," Joe Biden is pushing his "American Rescue Plan" which will distribute billions of dollars in Covid relief funds to "socially disadvantaged" people. And according to Biden, "socially disadvantaged" doesn't necessarily mean you're poor, or uneducated, or jobless, or particularly impacted by Covid at all- it just means you aren't white. Because Biden's plan might more accurately be labeled "No Cash For Caucasians."
Blacks, Native Americans, Alaskan Natives, Hispanics, and Pacific Islanders have all been granted "instant victim" status regardless of their degree of success in life. Because in Democratic minds, if any of those people are succeeding it's clearly some kind of fluke.
Not everyone is happy with this reasoning, including a white farmer (who has filed a lawsuit) born with spina bifida, who has two prosthetic legs, struggles to milk 70 cows a day, is overwhelmed with debt, and still can't get financial aid solely because of his skin color. Apparently, a twisted spine and two missing legs just aren't "socially disadvantaged" enough to deserve assistance.
Nor will he be seeing anything from Biden's $100 billion "Justice For Black Farmers Act," which will give 200,000 black applicants 160 acres, a home mortgage, loans for farm equipment and, oh yeah, agricultural training...since they won't need any farming experience to harvest government greens.
Happily, it seems likely that the courts will overturn at least some of Biden's plans because, according to a small technicality hidden deep, deep, deep within the Constitution, overt racism by government agencies isn't legal. Yet.
As we head into the Memorial Day weekend, it's worth checking in to see what Joe Biden's handlers have planned for him...
