New guidance from Biden's Food and Drug Administration
instructs states to reserve monoclonal antibody drugs for patients with medical
risk factors such as obesity and kidney disease. But here's the catch: The FDA
is also urging race and ethnicity to be considered risk factors, apart from
medical condition. So a Black patient with no health problems automatically
will be put ahead of a white patient in the same situation.
Biden's Treasury Department is rolling out a $10 billion
program to aid small-business owners with loans and grants. Businesses owned by
minorities, women, non-English speakers and ex-cons go to the front of line.
Biden administration regulators use weasel words to
obscure the truth about who will benefit from this State Small Business Credit
Initiative. Regulators say "disadvantaged" groups, but that's defined
by race and ethnicity, not actual hardship.
Eligibility also includes anyone who has had
"long-term residence in an environment isolated from the mainstream of
American society." Translation: ex-cons. White male business owners who
obey the law and have never been incarcerated are out of luck.
It's more of the same. Biden's American Rescue Act,
passed in March, is riddled with discrimination. That law divvied up taxpayer
dollars to benefit minorities and shortchange white people in the name of
equity. Minority farmers were offered no-strings loan forgiveness by Biden's
Agriculture Department, but white farmers were ineligible.
Biden's Restaurant Revitalization Fund pushed minority
and female restaurant owners to the front of the line for whopping giveaways —
up to $10 million per business owner. Sorry, white men.
Federal judges have suspended these programs until white
challengers get their day in court. But Biden persists, pandering to his
political supporters. Equal rights be damned.
The infrastructure bill passed in November is chock-full
of anti-white racism. It includes grants to install solar and wind technologies
in depressed areas. But when contractors bid, minority-owned businesses will
get selected first.
The bill also allocates money to improve urban traffic
patterns. Contractors and subcontractors get priority only if they're owned by
minorities or women. White male business owners can take a hike.
So can Asians, in Biden's view. On Dec. 13, Biden's Justice Department urged the Supreme Court not to hear a challenge to Harvard University's admissions policies, which challengers say deny admissions to Asians who have grades and test scores far higher than Black and white applicants.
The Trump Justice Department was committed to challenging
these racial preferences, and the American public agrees. Nearly three-quarters
of Americans oppose considering race and ethnicity in admissions decisions, and
that includes 65% of Hispanics and 62% of Blacks, according to Pew Research. In
November, California, the most left-wing and racially diverse state in the
country, voted against reinstating affirmative action in state hiring and
admissions to public universities.
Biden's Education Department is dangling federal grants
to encourage state education bureaucrats to adopt critical race theory and the
factually challenged New York Times "1619 Project."
The indoctrination and racism continue in the workplace.
Is this what Americans want? Absolutely not. Three-quarters of Americans oppose
using race to decide who's hired and promoted, Pew found.
Biden is ignoring that. He's cynically giving his
political backers what they want and, in the process, ripping deep wounds into
When Black and Hispanic people are ushered to the front
of the line for medical treatments, get first dibs on pandemic relief funds or
get hired faster or admitted to college more easily, other people suffer. Lives
and livelihoods are affected.
Americans want to be treated as individuals and to treat
others that way.
