Oregon Gave $64 Million in COVID Relief Funds to Black Businesses, Denied Same Funds to Whites and Hispanics
There are a handful of states that are in an earnest competition to be the worst state in the Union. I bet you can guess a few of them. They’re California, New York, Washington and Oregon. States like Hawaii try to participate, but the top four have pulled away from the crowd.
What is insane is that California and New York haven’t run away with this award. In fact, Oregon is the strong favorite for being the very worst state in our country. It’s not just the endless rioting in Portland or the legalization of all drugs they’ve passed. They’re also the most racist state in the union, and not by a small margin. Are you ready to be enraged? This story is despicable.
Before we jump in, let’s clarify something. The left tells us every day that racism is not dead in this country. It’s a big fu*#*ng deal. They tell us that it is getting worse. Here is what’s hard to verbalize. The left is right.
They’re completely right. Racism is prevalent and on the rise. It is a real threat to the integrity of our nation. Of course, the left blames Republicans/the Right/Trump supporters for this racism. They say that cops are racist and the systems in this country oppress black people. This is beyond dishonest. It is no longer black Americans who are on the receiving end. Instead, the new sin of birth is to be born to any race that isn’t black. What’s worse is that modern racism is codified into law. Our government is pushing this racism, and they’re doing it to placate the radical leftists.
You’ve probably seen how affirmative action displaced white and Asian students at major colleges around the country. Well, we have a new example of government-led racism, and this one is much more egregious.
The state of Oregon, like most states, has received huge sums of financial support from the federal government this year. A significant portion of it was allocated for small business assistance loans. Since the government shut down a bunch of businesses, the Constitution requires the government to provide compensation. Oregon has taken that compensation and said that you can only get it if you’re black.
This is not a joke. It’s not hyperbole. The Oregon legislature seriously earmarked $62 million in COVID relief for black-owned businesses only (out of $200 million total). Rest assured, black businesses can apply for any of the $200 million in available aid, but more than a quarter of the aid is reserved exclusively for people who have Oregon-approved skin color.
Keep in mind that this isn’t just discriminating against whites (which would be plenty racist and bad on its own). It’s discriminating against every other ethnic group in Oregon too. Asians, Hispanics and aboriginal Americans are all being denied relief so that the money can be steered exclusively to black-owned businesses. It is overt racism on every front.
Here’s a sliver of good news. Oregon is being sued on the grounds that this act is unconstitutional. As long as the case can be heard outside of the overtly biased Portland, Oregon courts, the state will lose.
Regardless, it’s patently ridiculous that we have politicians still trying to legislate by race in this country. Maybe it’s time we dropped down to a union of 49 states.
