Federal Judge Delivers Major Blow to Biden’s ‘Equity’ Agenda

A federal court in Texas has issued a stinging rebuke of the Biden administration’s so-called “equity agenda.”

“In a lawsuit challenging the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) — a new federal agency dedicated to helping only certain preferred racial groups — a federal judge ruled that the Biden administration cannot discriminate based on race,” Fox News reported on Thursday.

U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman, a Trump appointee, essentially gave the administration a lesson in civics in his ruling, noting: “The Constitution demands equal treatment under the law.”

Fox News noted:

While such a statement should be obvious to any American, this was quite a painful blow to the administration. On his first day in office, President Biden declared a “whole of government” approach to racial equity, requiring all his agencies to “affirmatively advance[e] equity.” In practice, the equity agenda resulted in a bevy of programs open to some races, but not others. Farmers, restaurant owners, homeowners, small business owners and federal contractors all got billions in federal tax dollars, so long as they belonged to certain racial groups.

The MBDA (Minority Business Development Agency) is the central element of the equity agenda. Established as a permanent federal agency under the Infrastructure Act in November 2021, the MBDA aims to support specific minority business owners by providing grants, training, consulting, government contracts, and other advantages to enhance their financial performance. As Under Secretary of Commerce Donald Cravins stated, “If you are a minority entrepreneur, MBDA is your agency.”

According to Pittman’s ruling, the MBDA does not extend its assistance to business owners with ancestral ties to the Middle East, North Africa, or North Asia. Furthermore, the MBDA excludes all minority business owners who own less than 51% of their businesses from receiving its support.

Consequently, when Biden mentioned “building community wealth” for “underserved communities” as part of his equity agenda, he expressly referred to preferred racial groups such as blacks, Hispanics, Native Americans, and certain Southeast Asians. Most non-white groups are actually excluded from taking part in the program, Pittman noted.

The administration’s questionable efforts to categorize individuals based on race, such as the inclusion of Pakistani Americans while excluding Afghani Americans, are indicative of a deeper issue. As Chief Justice John Roberts once expressed, “divvying us up by race” is a “sordid business.”

Attorney Daniel Lennington noted in his Fox News column: “Enter Greg Nuziard, Christian Bruckner and Matt Piper. These three White small business owners from Texas, Florida and Wisconsin, sued the Biden administration, alleging that the MBDA is an unconstitutional agency. Represented by the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, where I serve as deputy counsel, all three men attempted to get help from the MBDA but couldn’t because of the color of their skin.”

“In an email from the MBDA Office in Orlando, Florida, the MBDA told Christian Bruckner that because he was White, they couldn’t help him, but they would be happy to ‘refer you to our strategic partner… for assistance.’ Separate but equal, literally,” he added.

During the court proceedings, attorneys representing the Biden administration staunchly defended the race-based agency, asserting that such race discrimination was warranted as it aimed to address the lingering consequences of historical inequities resulting from racial prejudice. According to that argument, Lennington noted, past practices like redlining, Jim Crow laws, and the denial of benefits from the G.I. Bill provide contemporary policymakers with a basis to prioritize certain racial groups over Whites and other non-preferred racial groups.

“If this sounds familiar, it should. This is the theory of systemic racism, a modern-day progressive religion, which declares that all present-day racial disparities are caused by past race discrimination, despite clear evidence to the contrary (documented aptly by academics like Thomas Sowell),” he noted further.

“Pittman was not persuaded. In ruling against the Biden administration, he explained that the Constitution forbids race discrimination and that the government cannot justify a racial preference merely by pointing to statistical disparities. Allowing this type of justification for a race-based program would give ‘governments license to create a patchwork of racial preferences based on statistical generalizations about any particular field of endeavor,’” Lennington concluded.

    They have been doing this for years, they lower scores for blacks for many jobs. Government has been doing this for well over thirty years.

    Democratic Parties in other countries have the same delusional, hate everyone except Democrats ideals. That is politically motivated. If these people would do stuff that helped Americans, instead of putting the people that elected them, last, they would get voted in. But money from Soros, Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Hollywood, influenced and won the election for Biden. California has found like 34,000 dead people that voted. Only one state, or county. If Americans do not wake up, there will be a war here. I have God. He promises salvation if people repent and are Baptized. Pray in Jesus name. Then God gives the Holy Spirit for understanding. This body will die. But my soul, and all believers will be in Heaven. I have been shown this to be true. Cannot be weak and ignorant. Cannot earn Heaven. Tell people about this because we are going to Heaven. Once was lost. Then God delivered my soul. Jesus death allowed a way to God. According to a survey. Whites are attacked like 42.4 percent by blacks, then blacks attacked by whites. Look it up. Black Rock has said that war helps their pocketbook. Some politicians and bureaucrats follow that line of thinking. Trump wanted the war to end. But, planning. It’s obvious Biden has no common sense. No plan. He is run by GEF, WHO, and the elites. They want everyone to be in one system. So they can track shot records, money, spending. Control. That was said before the last election. Maybe people will look at the evidence and wake-up. Pretty sorry.

  • Only Joe Biden could think up this kind of scam. Nothing he has done for this country, the whole country, because of his senility. He needs to be tried for all the wild ideas, waste of money, giving money to certain industries so the democrats can payoff their support. This whole climate control is not caused by us, it is a normal swing of the Earth’s properties. To make a point, we are not on Earth, but in a Matrix of God’s making. Don’t be afraid of death, the good will inherit Heaven, while Communist, Socialist, and Democrats, and evil people, will inherit Hell. But they just can’t stop having God’s babies killed. It’s not what a woman or man can decide, it is for God to decide. I’m not speaking thru my hat, because my 8 NDE’s have given me the chance to be tuttered by none other than, Jesus Christ. All you non believers, are going to get the shock of seeing that He exist, and He is going to tell you that He does not know you. Think about living, and tormented in Hell for eternity. We all have choices in life, and bad choices give you Karma Matter, that will drag you to Hell. Goodbye to you! He has a special room for those like George Soros.
