OMG, Where did Obama Allocate $1.2 Billion? [Click to Read]
$1.2 Billion given to black farmers.
This is kind of an old story but it kind of slipped under the radar and I am bringing the issue back to life.
Dept. of Agriculture
Through the Department of Agriculture, President Obama’s administration authorized the use of $1.2 Billion of our tax money to go to black farmers as payback for years (decades) of discrimination. (Fox News, Nov 2010)
The Agriculture Department said that this was necessary in "addressing an unfortunate chapter in USDA’s civil rights history."
Judge Approved This
In October 2011, a judge gave the government approval. (Huffington Post)
"This agreement will provide overdue relief and justice to African American farmers, and bring us closer to the ideals of freedom and equality that this country was founded on," Obama said in a statement.
Obama is bypassing congress through the Departments so that he can enact policy and spend money. It is a power grab. Not only that, the judge that approved this allowed for reverse discrimination — money given to people of only one ethnic background.
