San Francisco Offering $5,000 To Small Businesses. The Catch Is ‘Women-Owned, Immigrant-Owned, People-Of-Color Owned’ Are Being Prioritized

Published

The city of San Francisco is bound and determined to keep on helping divide the country by race with their new attempt at helping to relief the economic burden of the coronavirus shutdown, proving once again how totally stupid the radical left really is.

The city is offering $5,000 grants to small businesses that have been wrecked by lockdowns, which is a great idea. Except for the part where most of the cash being distributed is being used as a means to help the city reach its “equity goals.”

This means ““minority-owned businesses including women-owned, immigrant-owned, people of color-owned businesses,” and companies and businesses in certain “cultural districts” are being prioritized above everyone else.

Creating protected classes of individuals and giving them more rights than others based on skin color is a form of racism, but hey, what do I know, right?

In December, San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced new measures to help small businesses, among which was a Shared Spaces equity grant for those with a Shared Space permit. In a press release on December 7, Breed stated:

Locally owned businesses that either hold or have applied for a Shared Spaces permit are eligible to receive up to $5,000 in reimbursement from the City, which will help businesses that have been forced to close outdoor operations as a result of the recent Stay at Home Order and prepare for an eventual reopening. Up to $1 million in funding comes from the Shared Spaces Equity Grants Program, which prioritizes minority-owned businesses and businesses that advance the City’s equity goals. … Priority for the Shared Spaces Equity Grants is given to locally-owned, minority-owned businesses that advance the City’s equity goals, including women-owned businesses, immigrant-owned businesses, legacy businesses, and businesses in established cultural districts or that serve a largely minority clientele.

As San Francisco News reported, “Robin Abad Ocubillo, the Director of Shared Spaces, indicated the grant is for businesses that are ‘based on availability of funds and given to locally-owned, minority-owned businesses that advance the City’s equity goals, including women-owned businesses, immigrant-owned businesses, legacy businesses, and businesses in established cultural districts or that serve a largely minority clientele.’”

The city’s official website says the following:

pply for a Shared Spaces equity grant. Use grant funds for technical assistance or materials. Check if your business is eligible. You must have a Shared Spaces permit or have applied for a Shared Spaces permit. We are looking to support businesses that:

  • Are in established cultural districts, or cultural districts in the process of formation
  • Are legacy businesses, or those acquiring legacy status
  • Serve non-English speaking communities
  • Are minority-owned businesses including women-owned, immigrant-owned, people of color-owned businesses

You must be the Shared Spaces permit holder to fill out the application.

We will ask you about:

  • Your business or organization location
  • The type of services or materials you want to be reimbursed for
  • The total cost of your Shared Space (including materials, labor, and consulting)

For individual businesses, we will also ask:

  • Your business owner contact and demographic information
  • Your type of business
  • Number of full-time and part-time employees

This is what happens when political correctness and identity politics are the foundation of a government’s way of dealing with people in crisis. No one should be receiving special treatment due to the color of their skin.

That goes against everything we as a nation believe about fairness. The city of San Francisco needs to be granting as many businesses as possible the funds necessary to survive.

Those businesses should be chosen based on an objective criteria that does not include race.

Psaki When Asked Why Joe Didn’t Wear Mask After Signing EO: ‘Bigger Issues to Worry About’

She’s going to be making plenty of excuses.

It is going to be a trip covering Joe Biden’s “presidency.” On Day 1, the guy signs an Executive Order mandating masks must be worn on federal property, then decides to not wear one later that same night at the Lincoln Memorial. When asked why that happened, new Press Secretary Jen Psaki dodged. Go figure. Didn’t Joe (and every liberal, for that matter) blast Trump whenever he didn’t wear a mask?

While Biden signed executive orders meant to combat the coronavirus outbreak, AP White House reporter Zeke Miller pressed him about his previously-announced goal of having 100 million Americans vaccinated within the first 100 days in office. Miller asked whether the bar should be set “higher” to encourage even more Americans to get vaccinated. WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1352349221161197568

Report: President Trump Reportedly Thinking of Forming New ‘Patriot Party’

Has a ring to it, no?

Before you get too excited about that headline (thinking the GOP is done with Donald Trump no longer at the helm) imagine all the negative aspects that would come with forming a new party. 1.) It would divide the Republican Party in two. 2.) Having another major party would split the vote, meaning Democrats keep on winning. It’s not the greatest idea, if he’s serious about it. What Trump should do is start his own TV network and social media platform ASAP. MAGA TV. You’re welcome. Anyway, check this out… The outlet, citing inside sources reportedly familiar with the matter, said that the president would like to call the party the “Patriot Party.” “Trump discussed the matter with several aides and other people close to him last week,” the outlet reported. “The president said he would want to call the new party the ‘Patriot Party,’ the people said.” The Daily Wire reported that “top pro-Trump Republicans” close to the administration said that it was a “bad idea” and would effectively split the Republican Party so that it would be nearly impossible for Republicans or otherwise to defeat the Democratic Party in elections.
