(Right Country) – Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf announced this week that a privately funded universal income program would start to give low-income families $500 per month. Oh, but the kicker — and there’s always a kicker — is that you can’t get the money if your family is white.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is why we constantly talk about liberalism being a mental disorder. You have leftists taking minorities and making them a protected class that receives more rights and privileges due to the color of their skin. This is called “racism,” which is what these social justice warriors say they are trying to fight.
You can’t fight racism by creating a different kind of racism.
According to Gateway Pundit, Schaaf is getting smashed for the race-based program that excludes poor white families.
“We have designed this demonstration project to add to the body of evidence, and to begin this relentless campaign to adopt a guaranteed income federally,” Mayor Libby Schaaf stated.
The Oakland Resilient Families program has managed to raise $6.75 million from private donors, which includes Blue Meridian Partners, which is a national philanthropy group. In order to be eligible for the program folks have to have at least one kid under 18, an income at or below 50 percent of the area’s median income, which is roughly around $59,000 per year for a family of three.
“Half the spots are reserved for people who earn below 138% of the federal poverty level, or about $30,000 per year for a family of three. Participants will be randomly selected from a pool of applicants who meet the eligibility requirements,” the AP reported.
“Oakland’s project is significant because it is one of the largest efforts in the U.S. so far, targeting up to 600 families. And it is the first program to limit participation strictly to Black, Indigenous and people of color communities,” the AP report continued.
So why are whites being excluded from the program? Because white households in the city of Oakland allegedly make three times more a year than black families do according to the Oakland Equity Index. It’s apparently a nod to the Black Panther Party too.
No matter how you slice the cheese on this, it’s a racist policy and needs to either be truly all inclusive or just completely tossed out.
