The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced new funding on Wednesday, saying it aimed to help “underserved” producers access land, capital and markets and to train “the next diverse generation of agricultural professionals.” The spending binge targets “farmers of color,” meaning those with skin colors other than white.
The announcement follows a failed effort by the Biden administration to provide debt forgiveness to only non-white farmers through a March 2021 Covid-19 relief bill. A federal judge ruled in June 2021 that racially-based debt relief was unconstitutionally discriminatory.
Of course they do. And they call their critics “racists.”
