Adam Faust, a white resident of Chilton who has two prosthetic legs, is among five Midwestern farmers who recently filed a lawsuit in Green Bay that accuses the federal government of violating their constitutional rights, WLUK reported.
“Were plaintiffs eligible for the loan forgiveness benefit, they would have the opportunity to make additional investments in their property, expand their farms, purchase equipment and supplies, and otherwise support their families and local communities,” the lawsuit states.
“Because plaintiffs are ineligible to even apply for the program solely due to their race, they have been denied the equal protection of the law and therefore suffered harm,” it says.
And if that isn’t racist what is?
Faust, the owner of Faust Farms, told the news outlet that the program is “out and out racist.”
“It was just out and out racist, and I really don’t think that there should be racism allowed in the federal government at any level,” the farmer griped.
“If somebody’s green, I think they should be allowed to participate, based on their actual qualifications for the program, and not just picking an arbitrary thing like race.”
Farming is just one of many industries that suffered losses in the year of COVID, pandemic or not, and relief for the men and women who produce our food is perfectly justified, but to determine who gets the relief based on the color of skin is simply not right. All farmers who qualify should be considered, not just a race that is very much in the minority in that industry.
