Democrats continue to make it clear that they have an open hostility toward white people that is evident by both their rhetoric and their actions.
The latest outrage is the exclusion of a specific group of poor people from a new program in Oakland, California. The program is supposed to provide financial assistance to low-income families in the form of up to $500 a month with no-strings-attached.
White families who are struggling are not eligible to draw from The Oakland Resilient Families fund, a clear case of discrimination that is cruelly indifferent to hungry children who happen to have the wrong skin color.
The highly controversial program was announced this week by Libby Schaaf, the city’s Democrat mayor, who apparently doesn’t see the irony in utilizing racism to address racial inequality.
According to Schaaf, the Oakland program is a part of a larger push for a national guaranteed income that has been proposed by some Democrats, as well as the far-left “woke” activists that are the tail that wags the dog.
‘We have designed this demonstration project to add to the body of evidence, and to begin this relentless campaign to adopt a guaranteed income federally“, said Mayor Schaaf who was quoted in an Associated Press story.

In an official City Of Oakland announcement on the money to be doled out along racial lines, Schaaf states that: “Guaranteed income is one of the most promising tools for systems change, racial equity, and economic mobility we’ve seen in decades. I’m proud to work with such committed local partners to build a new system that can help undo centuries of economic and racial injustice, and point us all toward a more just society.”
The statement also makes it clear that white people need not bother applying:
“Who is this for? Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) (i.e. groups with the greatest wealth disparities per the Oakland Equity Index) with low incomes and at least 1 child under 18, regardless of documentation status. The term “family” is defined broadly to recognize that families come in all shapes and sizes”, according to Schaaf and her city.
Mayor Schaaf was previously in the news after she tipped off illegal immigrants about impending actions by Immigration And Customs Enforcement agents, a move that was compared to acting as a “gang lookout” according to former ICE boss Thomas Homan.
The guaranteed income programs are currently relying on private funds, including $15 million from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to the national group Mayors for a Guaranteed Income. However, it isn’t all that hard to see programs excluding white people could be a trial balloon for reparations on the federal level, a longtime dream of Democrats and “woke” activists.
The Biden regime is already practicing discrimination along racial lines with the passage of the COVID “relief” bill that included billions of dollars in debt relief for black farmers.

Again, white people need not apply.
Where this all goes is yet unknown, but it is very ominous that political leaders are now openly adopting policies that are blatantly racist. None of which will help dial down the racial tensions that have been stoked by Democrats and the purveyors of hate in the media.
