Oregon Defends State Coronavirus Program Giving Federal Funds to Black People Only, Breitbart, December 5, 2020
The State of Oregon continues to defend a state program that distributes federal coronavirus relief funds to black people — and only black people — after two separate lawsuits have challenged the program as a violation of the U.S. Constitution.
The Oregon state legislature’s Emergency Board created the Oregon Cares Fund this summer — with nightly Black Lives Matter riots raging in Portland — to allocate $62 million in funds from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to black residents (out of $200 million in total funds). The Oregon Cares Fund website states:
The Oregon Cares Fund is a targeted investment in the Black community from the CARES Act Coronavirus Relief Fund. This fund is meant to provide the Black community with the resources it needs to weather the global health pandemic and consequent recession. The Oregon Cares Fund is for Black people, Black-owned businesses, and Black community based organizations.
At the time, the Oregon Legislative Counsel warned that the program might be unconstitutional, especially because the legislature had not shown evidence that past discrimination was responsible for black Oregonians’ suffering during COVID 19 outbreak.
As discussed below, we think the program may potentially, but would not necessarily, violate the equal protection clause of the United States Constitution and the privileges and immunities clause of the Oregon Constitution.
Under the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which prohibits states from denying “equal protection of the laws” to individuals, state laws that classify individuals according to race or gender are subject to special scrutiny.
…We are not aware of any evidentiary findings by the legislature or the Emergency Board in support of the OBDD grant program at issue here. Without any such findings, the program would almost certainly be unconstitutional under the Fourteenth Amendment.
…Article I, section 20, of the Oregon Constitution, prohibits the state from providing privileges or immunities to a class of citizens if the privileges or immunities do not apply on the same terms to all citizens.
Two federal lawsuits have been filed: one by a logging company, Great Northern Resources; and the other by a Mexican-American coffee shop owner, Maria Garcia. (For her trouble, she has been labeled by Latino “leaders” as “anti-Black.”)Written by Stephan Ball
According to these protesters being white and silent about the most recent death of George Floyd is racist. With police officers, Sheriffs, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and just about every other Democrat pandering for social justice by kneeling, is it still okay to be proud of being you? According to many in the Black Lives Matter, even saying All Livers Matter, or that Blue Lives Matter, is racist. Yet with these protests you do not see a dominating percentage of the people present being black, they are white people, mostly young adults.
With statues being torn down, the Lincoln Memoral vandalized, even the 54th Mass. Military Monument (first North, all black, free unit) was vandalized. Is this about social justice or something else? With mostly progressive backing from the far left political affiliations within the Democratic Party, and calls for defunding police, you can be sure this is not about race, but instead, about control. With Democrats already in control of Minneapolis they could have implemented any control and policies they wanted to control racial divides within the black community there, it was Amy Klobucher who failed to prosecute Ofc. Chauvin the first time he killed an unarmed black male. All Democrat City Council, Democrat Mayor, Senators and Governor all Democrats. Even Ilhan Omar is a Congressional Representative of part of Minneapolis.
With conservatives like Dan Bongino and Candace Owens warning us that this is not about race, but about insurrection against Donald Trump. This was an excuse to riot, this was an excuse to raise money for Joe Biden, through an Organization called ACTBLUE which takes money for Black Lives Matter and in turn has made contributions to Democratic Party members using those funds. This is control, an apparent attempt to show who is the most “woke” among us, with riots in the street and now a six block area of Seattle in the hands of Antifa we can safely assume the far left of America has declared war on the rest of us.
I am white, do I need to feel guilty for writing an article that portrays BLM in a negative light, I don’t in fact, we need to call them out. In 2016 a self-professed BLM supporter ambushed and killed five Dallas police officers his name was Micah Xavier Johnson, he was killed by police after a brief standoff, being so dangerous that police had to rig a bomb to a remote control drone and detonate it near him. Also in 2016 three police officers were killed by another self-professed BLM member Gavin Long in Baton Rouge. After these two events, then President Obama invited DeRay Mckesson and Mica Grimm, (Minneapolis Chapter) of Black Lives Matter to the White House, to discuss events.
With the most recent taking of the six blocks of Seattle’s East Precinct, Black Lives Matter stormed the Seattle City Hall, with members of Antifa. Ask yourself this, would anyone listen to a bunch of Michigan Militia guys who stormed Detroit City Hall, occupied a six block radius with weapons, and kicked out the police? Hell No! and Rightfully so! Let us just look to Oregon and Lavoy Finicum and his death at the hands of then Obama’s FBI and Kate Brown’s Oregon State Police. Will Washington State Police Ambush each member who has taken over the six blocks of Seattle? Will they set up a roadblock or starve them out, why do they still have water, power, and gas?
Democrats have a motto! “Never let a good crisis go to waste,” They certainly are trying to capitalize on this one. President Trump has instructed the Governor to take control or he will. We have yet to see what that entails, but all in all we are lucky this did not happen in Portland, they almost did it. Vote Conservative on the ballot, make sure your friends do also, we need every vote.

Former Vice President Joe Biden suggested Friday morning that an African-American radio personality “ain’t black” if he was questioning whether he should support the presumptive Democrat nominee over President Trump, thus solidifying the stance that he believes Democrats control the black vote and are due it when election time comes.
Biden went on to tout his voting record, and how he said it helps the black community, when in fact his voting record is responsible for massive black youth incarceration, the very thing this administration overturned just recently with criminal justice reform.
Are Democrats so out of touch with the black voter that they think they can pull people’s “black card” if they don’t vote Democrat? With Trump gaining voters among black voters with massive economic assistance, the lowest black unemployment ever among the black community pre-corona. People like Kanye West, Kim Kardasian, Candace Owens, and others praising the job he is doing among the black community, comments like Biden’s can only push more voters into the Trump camp.
A black U.S. Senator from South Carolina, Tim Scott called Biden’s comment “the most arrogant thing I have seen in a long time.” With Biden having won South Carolina is the primaries, Tim Scott’s criticism of his comment could be a spring board for those who oppose racism to finally realize that Biden and the Democrats do not have their best interest at heart, and have not for a long time if ever.
During the video Biden panders to Charlemagne by speaking in a way that he does not speak with speaking with white reporters, he spoke with more slang and in what some would call a “black” way. This is just another way, to tell when someone is a racist, when a person will change and pander to a culture by appropriating it’s accents to speak to you in order to be more readily understood, they think you are too stupid to understand the way they normally speak.
One thing is for sure, we all got to see Bide the true :blue” Democrat racist this morning, make sure to talk to all of your friends and educate them.
