White Farmer Fights Back Against Federal Government Racism

Posted: May 06, 2021 3:00 PM

Disabled Wisconsin farmer Adam Faust is suing the Biden administration for racial discrimination after he and others were cut out of a recent Wuhan coronavirus relief program because he is white. 

"Racism against anybody is wrong and we can't have a government that's picking and choosing who they're going to give any program to based solely on the color of their skin," Faust said during an interview with Fox News. "Everything that we've all learned growing up is racism is wrong and now all of the sudden the federal government seems to think racism is acceptable in certain ways. It should never be acceptable." 

Faust's attorney Rick Esenberg warned the new "equity" push by the left, rather than the promotion of equal opportunity, will take the country to a dangerous place. 

"We are all to be treated as individuals and this really disturbing move that we have towards equity instead of equality of opportunity, will not end well," Esenberg said. "It will lead to a war of all against all where we all are looking for our racial spoils and that' simply not what America is about." 

"This is immoral and it's unconstitutional and illegal," he continued. 

The New York Post summed up the program well. 

Polls show most Americans support the federal COVID-19 relief bill. But if they knew what’s in it, they might feel differently. The bill is an affront to the American ideal of equal treatment under law — and a slap in the face for people who want everyone helped fairly.   

Section 1005 of the bill offers “socially disadvantaged” farm owners total debt forgiveness of up to hundreds of thousands of no-strings dollars per farmer. But white men needn’t apply. The bill’s definition of “socially disadvantaged,” drawn from elsewhere in federal law, limits aid to racial groups who faced historic discrimination.
