Unless you’re a person of color or a favored minority, brace yourself to be treated unfairly by the Biden administration.
President Joe Biden is pushing racial equity. That’s very different from equal treatment regardless of race. Racial equity means government can treat people unequally, discriminating against white people, to equalize outcomes. For the Biden administration, it means closing the wealth gap between the white and Black populations — by whatever means.
You may think it’s “unfair” to be forced to pay off other people’s student loans after you’ve already paid back your own. But Biden’s White House actually defends debt cancellation as a way to close the “wealth gap” between races, citing data showing that 20 years after starting college, the average Black borrower still owes 95% of the loan, while the average white borrower has paid off all but 6%.
At the other end of life’s spectrum, older people who are white will find it harder to get an appointment with a doctor who takes Medicare. The Biden administration is forcing physicians to categorize their patients by race and demonstrate they have an “anti-racism” plan to combat health disparities. (Federal Register, Nov. 19, 2021, page 65969). To meet that test, Black patients will be in demand — white patients, not so much.
Doctors who insist on treating patients as individuals rather than by race will be punished with lower payments. Most doctors are expected to give in to avoid the penalty.
If you’re white, good luck dealing with the costs of buying a home. Fannie Mae’s new Equitable Housing Finance Plan will help with appraisals and closing costs, but only if you’re Black.
If you’re a white business owner who sells to the federal government, get ready to lose business to a competitor who identifies as “underserved,” “marginalized” or “disadvantaged.” All euphemisms for identity groups. The Biden bureaucracy gives preference to minorities in federal procurement. Straight white men can take a hike.
Stunningly, the 2021 Medicare payment rules for physicians printed in the Federal Register parrot the language used by inflammatory college professor Ibram X. Kendi in his 2019 book “How to Be an Antiracist.” Physicians must show a “commitment to anti-racism” to qualify for merit pay from Medicare. They’re told it will require “considerable time and resources” to “prioritize” certain “populations.”
That’s instead of treating all patients the same. Kendi argues that colorblindness sustains racial inequality. “The only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination.”
Many physicians are horrified, predicting the rule will undermine trust between doctor and patient. It suggests Black patients will get more time with the physician and more diagnostic tests. White patients will worry they aren’t getting an antibiotic or a referral to a specialist because of their race.
Eight states and Do No Harm, a physicians organization, are suing to overturn the rule. Stanley Goldfarb, chairman of Do No Harm, blasts it for pushing doctors to “prioritize some patients over others.” Rep. Gary Palmer (R-Ala.) has introduced a bill in Congress banning the rule’s “reverse discrimination.”
“Critical race theory has no place in the health care profession,” says Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, one of the litigants. He says he will not allow doctors in his state “to be penalized for refusing to bend to extremism.”
Extremism it is. It’s being forced on Americans by what Biden calls a “whole-of-government” approach. We were warned, even before election night 2020, that a Biden administration would trample America’s commitment to fairness and equal treatment under the law.
On Nov. 1, 2020, Kamala Harris tweeted, “There’s a big difference between equality and equity.”
Fair warning: Equity is what we’re reeling under now.
Federal courts have struck down several of Biden’s anti-white programs as unconstitutional. More will likely fall. But in the meantime, Biden’s push for equity will foment racial hostility not seen in half a century.
Don’t be fooled by the president’s rhetoric on Sunday, when he commemorated civil rights leaders who marched on Washington, D.C., 59 years ago. They were fighting racial injustice. Biden is not. He’s imposing anti-white discrimination on everything, from housing to health care. It’s racism by another name.

We should now use their tactics! When filling out paperwork check that you identify as black, Latino, or other! Since a female can “identify” as a male and visa versa – why can’t race be chosen by the individual as well
Every chance he gets, biden refers to race. Most of the time, his comments come off sounding sickeningly patronizing, as in his adulation for Obama. His explanations behind certain policies point to the assumed inability of minorities to procure a valid ID, get medical treatment, or fulfill loan commitments.
The problem is that he doesn’t even know how his words sound to someone who’s paying attention. He can’t read nuance. He’s not terribly bright. But the dems dismiss these gaffes–all his gaffes–and applaud him, nonetheless. Is this any way to run a country like the U.S.?
The Democrat Party has always been the racist party. When you strip away the pleasant sounding phony language they hide behind, the Democrat Party has always promoted racial bias and violence. Whether it was their creation of the KKK after the Civil War, the so-called War on Poverty that LBJ and the Democrats used to create generations of blacks families dependent on the federal government or the latest promotions of “racial and social justice” as a mask to hide their real purpose for stoking racial violence and further discriminatory policies. There is virtually nothing new or special in what Biden is promoting. It’s the same old discriminatory, divisive BS the Democrats have been selling for well over 150 years. Just some different phraseology for the modern times.
Exactly but people are not educated about how the democrats have always used and abused black people. The way they are now against white people I wonder what color they see in the mirror every morning. They will not always be in power and and they can’t change their color or their biological gender!!
Pres. Biden is using whatever leverage he can get and do, to keep his Socialist party in power so their evil agenda can be completed before the mid-term elections. Keep the people off balance.
Yes Max, every appearance by Biden between now and the mid-terms is designed to deflect the public’s attention away from things like the open border, the intentional flooding of the country with illlegal aliens, the insane spending that has created the worst inflation in 45 years, the intentional destruction of our domestic energy industry, etc., etc..
Biden and the DemocRat Party have a political philosophy that is weakly disguised Communism. When is the Nation’s true Constitutional supporters going to wise up to this????? If the voting system is not fixed so that it cannot be subjected to rigging, the answer is “a long time, if ever.” And we also have reached a point in the Nation’s governance where term limits are needed for Congresspeople and Exec Dept heads (IRS, FBI, Defense, HLS, etc.). But even the Republican majority serving in the legislature would probably rationalize not supporting such an amendment.
