SHOCKING: Biden Gives Out Relief Funds Based on Race

Under President Biden’s “Restaurants Revitalization Fund” (RRF), restaurants and venues owned by white men will be last in line for federal relief; priority will be given to women and minority groups first.

The Small Business Administration (SBA) is opening the application process by which owners of restaurants, bars, and other venues can apply for federal relief to help make up for the loss of revenue as a result of economic lockdowns spurred by the Chinese coronavirus crisis, as part of Biden’s American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.

Business owners can apply for relief of up to $10 million per business, no more than $5 million per physical location. Business owners are not required to repay the funds as long as the money is spent by March 2023.

The relief is being prioritized based on race, gender, and whether or not business owners are considered “socially and economically disadvantaged individuals.” For example, white men who are not Veterans of the US armed forces are not eligible for “priority period” funding and processing.

Priority processing and funding, under the guidelines of the RRF, the SBA is given to “small business owned by women, veterans, or socially and economically disadvantaged individuals.”

The business must be “at least 51 percent owned by one or more individuals who are women, veterans, or socially and economically disadvantaged and if one or more women control the management and daily business operations of the applicant, veterans, or socially and economically disadvantaged individual,” to be eligible.

The Biden administration defines businesses owned by “socially economically disadvantaged” individuals are those who are:

  • Part of an “economically disadvantaged Indian tribe”
  • “Subjected to racial or ethnic prejudice or cultural bias”
  • Black American
  • Hispanic American
  • Native American, including Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian
  • Asian Pacific American
  • Subcontinent Asian American

The guidelines of RRF state that the SBA will “will look at whether the net worth of the individual claiming disadvantage is less than $750,000” and “will also look at whether the adjusted gross income of the individual averaged over the preceding three years exceeds $350,000” to determine if they are considered “economically disadvantaged.”

The Biden administration has used similar race-based priorities in other federal programs. White farmers of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ohio, and South Dakota filed suit against the Biden administration this month, alleging that the federal loan forgiveness program excludes them because they are white.

Former President Trump’s administration delivered funds to small businesses based on the amount of revenue they lost. For example, those who lost 90 percent or more of revenue were prioritizing processing and funding.

Federal law currently prohibits discrimination based on race, color, sex, familial status, disability, religion, and national origin. The Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice enforces laws against such discrimination in federally assisted programs, like the PPP and unemployment boosters provided for in the COVID-19 stimulus package.
