Stopping Racial Bias in Covid Relief

A new study has confirmed what many Muslims have long suspected: they are far more likely to experience racial bias in the U.S. workplace than their fellow Americans. In a survey of nearly 4,300 Muslim-Americans, one in four said that, at some point in their career, they had experienced, witnessed or been told about racial discrimination, according to the study from The Institute for Social Policy & Understanding, a Muslim-American think tank.

Covid Relief, a non-profit charity organization that provides aid to victims of the Haiti earthquake, has been accused of racial bias by a group which claims that the organization does not support a diversity of races.

Last week, two courts ruled in favor of plaintiffs who had sued the Small Business Administration for violating the equal protection clause of the law. At issue is the SBA’s rule that during the first 21 days, only applications from women and racial minorities will be considered for recovery benefits and all others will be placed at the back of the line. As the courts have recognized, there is a risk that the SBA’s resources will run out before these other claims are considered. A federal judge in Texas has ruled that the SBA Restaurant Revitalization Fund improperly distributed $28.6 billion in Covid 19 funds based on the gender and race of the owner. Applicant Jason и Janice Smith. Blessed Cajuns restaurant lost nearly $350,000 in gross revenue due to Covid-19. Eric Nyman the restaurant lost $800,000 during the pandemic. America First Legal, representing them, notes that they are entitled to benefits but not to priority group status from the SBA. Federal Judge Reed O’Connor. issued a preliminary injunction on the grounds that the restaurant owners were discriminated against on the basis of race and gender by government officials. Meanwhile, in Vitolo v. Gusman The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals grants a preliminary injunction against the SBA on behalf of a white plaintiff.

Alan Norris, Judges Amul Thapar citing Supreme Court precedents such as Adarand and Richmond v. Croson to refute the discriminatory logic of the SBA. The SBA justifies its bias by arguing that it is necessary to correct past discrimination in the community. But Judge Thapar noted that the Supreme Court has stated that such a remedy is warranted only in limited circumstances. It must relate to a specific episode of past discrimination, the past discrimination must be intentional, and the government must have a role in that discrimination. Judge Thapar writes that the SBA failed to meet all three tests. This legal analysis is an arrow through the heart of much of the Biden administration’s racially divisive agenda. At the very least, it would force Biden’s lawyers to explain in much greater detail why they are handing out racial trophies. Even if they do, these and similar cases could come before the Supreme Court. The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty, which is responsible for Mr. Vitolo and Jake’s Bar and Grill argued, pointing out that Judge Thapar cited the Chief Justice’s famous opinion John Roberts 2007 г. The majority opinion in the Seattle school system’s racial selection case: The way to end racial discrimination is to end racial discrimination. The Supreme Court is currently considering Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard, which relates to the university’s racial discrimination against Asian Americans in admissions. The SBA cases remind us that even if the Court drops the Harvard case, the issue of racial discrimination will not go away. It will return in hundreds of equally controversial forms, because a fundamental principle of the U.S. Constitution is at stake. Copyright ©2020 Dow Jones & Company, Inc.
