In 1999, the Clinton administration tried to correct a historic injustice. In 2010, the Obama administration said not just blacks, but EVERYONE - hispanics, white women, Native Americans and even ranchers (who "ranches?" White males?) should get a part of the settlement fought for and won by black farmers.




In 1999, the Clinton administration tried to correct a historic injustice, said Sharon LaFraniere in The New York Times. For decades, the U.S. Department of Agriculture routinely denied loans to black farmers while approving them for their white neighbors. Faced with some 1,000 claims in a class-action lawsuit known as Pigford v. Glickman, the government agreed to pay $50,000 to each victim.

To win minority votes, President Obama actually expanded this program of “reparations,’’ said Rich Lowry in NationalReview.com, authorizing Hispanic, Native American, and women farmers to file their own claims. Pigford’s eventual price tag may hit $4.4 billion.

This is disgraceful. Once again, the First Black President has given black folk, well, did not so much as usual ignores us, but when he did turn his attention to legislation for African-Americans, acted like the crassest, most cynical opportunist.... with what was "ours." A deed he could have pointed to and said, "I did this for my black constituency!" he cynically piggy-backs his favored hispanics, Indians, and even adds on white women to what was fought through the courts by Black Farmers, won, and reparations ear-marked by the Congress of the United States, SOLELY for blacks.

Karma's coming.

Since whites are claiming the Settlement FOR BLACK FARMERS that Obama is NOW letting everybody and their momma NOT Black in on, is riddled with fradulent applicants (just the black farmer applicants, of course), I checked it out:

2006 Government Accountability Office report. Determining Pigford claimant eligibility:


As used in this report, the phrase “African-American farmers” refers to the class as defined by the court and not a more general definition. The certified class was defined as all African-American farmers who (1) farmed or attempted to farm between January 1, 1981, and December 31, 1996; (2) applied to USDA during that period for loans or benefits and believe they were discriminated against in USDA’s response to that application; and (3) filed a discrimination complaint on or before July 1, 1997, regarding USDA’s treatment of their applications.

Obama is not African-American so I don't know why folks expect anything different. He's made it clear who he's committed to.m
