    Too much crying wolf becomes suspicious and proves fake.  Last January, newly elected President Joe Biden pledged to fight racism and unify the nation. Instead, during his first year he’s imposed a harsh agenda of reverse racism in everything from distributing pandemic-relief aid to allocating scarce COVID treatments. Racial favoritism is affecting every way this administration treats Americans.

     New guidance from Biden’s Food and Drug Administration instructs states to reserve monoclonal antibody drugs for patients with medical risk factors such as obesity and kidney disease. But here’s the catch: The FDA is also urging them to consider race and ethnicity to be risk factors, apart from medical condition. So a black patient with no health problems automatically will be put ahead of a white patient with no health problems. That’s sickening. Every patient deserves to be treated as an individual, not a member of a group. Biden’s Treasury Department is rolling out a $10 billion program to aid small-business owners with loans and grants. Businesses owned by minorities, women, non-English speakers and ex-cons go to the front of the line.

     Biden administration regulators use weasel words to obscure the truth about who will benefit from this State Small Business Credit Initiative. Regulators say “disadvantaged” groups, but that’s defined by race and ethnicity, not actual hardship. Eligibility also includes anyone who has had “long-term residence in an environment isolated from the mainstream of American society.” Translation: ex-cons. White male business owners who obey the law and have never been incarcerated are out of luck. It’s more of the same from this administration. Biden’s American Rescue Act, passed in March, is riddled with discrimination. That law divvied up taxpayer dollars to benefit minorities and shortchange whites in the name of equity. Minority farmers were offered no-strings loan forgiveness by Biden’s Agriculture Department, but white farmers were ineligible.
