From Tuskegee to Latinx: Biden offers theories on minority vaccine rates in racial gaffe-fest:
President confuses Tuskegee Airmen with Tuskegee study on syphilis
President Biden was called out for a racial two-fer in which he suggested that all Hispanic Americans are illegal immigrants, and mixed up the Tuskegee airmen with the infamous syphilis experiment on Black patients.
Mr. Biden made the double gaffe in less than a minute during remarks Thursday on his trip to promote COVID-19 vaccines in Raleigh, North Carolina, where the statewide vaccination rate for adults has lagged behind the national average.
“There’s a reason why it’s been harder to get African-Americans initially to get vaccinated, because they used to be experimented on, the Tuskegee Airmen and others,” he said, as shown in viral video clips. “People have memories. People have long memories.”
Mr. Biden appeared to confuse the Tuskegee Airmen, the famed Black fighter pilots who served heroically in World War II, with the infamous Tuskegee Syphilis Study, a 1932-72 federal experiment in which about 600 Black men suffering from the disease were observed but not treated, even after penicillin became widely available in 1947.
Conservative pundit Ben Shapiro tweeted that “the Tuskegee Airmen and the Tuskegee experiment are two wildly different historical stories, and Biden’s apparent conflation of the two is impressively demented.” --->READ MORE HERE

Biden’s race-based pandemic relief suffers another loss in court:
Federal judge blocks USDA from issuing loan-forgiveness checks to minority farmers
Judges continue to look askance at President Biden’s attempts to allocate benefits based on race.
The Biden administration took another hit Wednesday when a federal judge in Florida granted a preliminary injunction against the Agriculture Department’s program to provide loan forgiveness to non-White farmers and ranchers.
The order by U.S. District Court Judge Marcia Morales Howard blocked the USDA from issuing payments under the $4 billion debt-relief program to “socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers” [SDFRs] established in the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan.
Judge Howard found that the plaintiff, farmer Scott Wynn of Jennings, Florida, “has shown that absent an injunction, all SDFRs with qualifying farm loans will receive up to 120% debt relief and he will suffer the harm of being excluded from eligibility for that debt relief program solely on the basis of his race.”
“That harm, he has shown, is irreparable,” she said in her 49-page ruling. “The debt relief given to the SDFRs cannot be undone, the Court cannot order that Plaintiff receive equivalent relief, and money damages are precluded. The harm will be complete and its effects will be cast in stone.”
The order comes as the latest defeat for the Biden administration in its effort to provide pandemic relief to minorities while excluding Whites. --->READ MORE HERE
