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

Published

on

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.

SEE IT: Border Crisis at Breaking Point, Prompting TX Governor to Take Drastic Action

Things are turning troublesome in the Lone Star State.

Published

Despite constant pleas and pressure, the Biden administration continues to be unwilling to take action on the southern border, where a humanitarian crisis of nigh-biblical proportions is unfolding.

Would-be Americans from all corners of the globe are rushing the American border in Texas, overwhelming the facilities and authorities there to receive them. Compounding the issue is that fact that these migrants are largely eschewing the official naturalization process and checkpoints, and arriving whenever and wherever they can.

As border czar, Vice President Kamala Harris has been largely absent from the fray, opting to do as-of-yet-unknown work on climate change, claiming that this is a “root cause” of illegal immigration.

Now, as the border is being stormed Texas Governor Greg Abbott has had to make some desperate decisions. 

Texas Governor Greg Abbott deployed a contingent of Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Highway Patrol troopers to stop the free flow of mostly Haitian migrants from crossing the Rio Grande. The force of nearly 1,000 troopers and National Guard soldiers entered the makeshift migrant camp housing nearly 15,000 migrants under the Del Rio International Bridge.

On Saturday afternoon, the troopers used vehicles and barbed wire to block access to a weir dam stretching the Rio Grande. The migrants utilized the dam as the primary crossing point from Mexico into the makeshift camp.

Aerial photos demonstrated just what a mess the situation has become in the absence of any federal action.

The undeniable negligence of the Biden administration on this issue has been both confounding and infuriating for a majority of Americans, many of whom have publicly expressed their concerns over the capabilities of the White House over the course of the last several months.

Gabby Petito’s Fiancé on the Run in Florida Swamps, Say Authorities

Should Laundrie escape or take his own life, there could be little hope left of bringing Gabby home.

Published

on

The saga surrounding the disappearance of Gabby Petito continues to evolve this weekend, in strange and ever-more dramatic ways, and it could lead to yet another layer of tragedy.

Petito and her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, were on a cross-country road trip when her family lost contact with her.  Soon after, Laundrie returned home to Florida, sans Gabby, and her parent promptly filed a missing persons report.  Laundrie, unconscionably, refused to cooperate with investigators who were now looking for Petito.

Then, in a twist that could add exponential sorrow to the story, Laundrie has gone on the run after leaving his parents’ home on Tuesday – something that his family did not reveal to authorities until Friday.

Now, the hunt is on for the prime suspect in Petito’s disappearance.

Police spent Saturday searching a “vast” Florida preserve near the Laundrie family’s home after they said late Friday his whereabouts were now unknown, too. Late Saturday, police said they were suspending the search due to darkness and would begin again Sunday morning.

“Be advised that the whereabouts of Brian Laundrie are currently unknown,” an attorney for the family said Friday. “The FBI is currently at the Laundrie residence removing property to assist in locating Brian. As of now the FBI is now looking for both Gabby and Brian.”

Laundrie, 23, has not been seen since Tuesday, according to police and the family’s lawyer.

North Port Police said Saturday morning that they were searching for Laundrie in “the vast Carlton Reserve,” a 24,565-acre preserve north of his home in North Port.

If Laundrie were to evade authorities, or end his own life while on the run, there could be little hope left of finding out what exactly happened to Gabby Petito.
