This latest installment of the Real Racism series comes to us from Joe Biden, the man who, next week, will be President of the United States.
Mr. Biden has pledged to help small businesses. But his key focus is not on businesses most in need. His key focus is on businesses that are not owned by White males. If your skin color happens to be White and you happen to have male plumbing, you are being placed at the back of the line.
In Biden’s own words:
“Our focus will be on small businesses on Main Street that aren’t wealthy and well-connected. That are facing real hardships through no fault of their own”
“Our priority will be Black, Latino, Asian and Native American owned small businesses, woman-owned small businesses and finally having equal access to resources needed to reopen and rebuild”
Am I missing something here, or is this not the exact definition of racism and sexism?
If, while dispensing help according to need, a larger share goes to minorities and women because they are most in need, that is perfectly fine. Need is the issue.
But if minorities and women are, as a matter of policy, specifically put ahead of Whites and males – not on the basis of need, but on the basis of their skin color and gender? That is overt racism and overt sexism. It is intolerable. And it is exactly what Joe Biden is pledging to do.
If you doubt he really said this, if you think I’m exaggerating in any way, I suggest you watch this short (1:27) video and hear it with your own ears:

There is is. In so many words.
Real racism. No group is immune to it or from it. And the fact that, in this case, it is coming from the new President of the United States makes me sick to my stomach.
