Judge blocks bid to end grant program for black entrepreneurs

We already knew this when the United States Supreme Court invalidated positive action college and university admissions, Anti-AA white advocates would not stop at universities and would soon set their sights on corporate America. And that’s exactly what’s happening. White people are very angry because there are still organizations that continue to prioritize opportunities for people of color, as opposed to more opportunities for white people in a country built on white-only opportunities.

According to The Washington Post, a federal judge in Atlanta ruled Tuesday that venture capital firm Fearless Fund can continue offering a grant program exclusively to black women entrepreneurs after the company was sued by a salty white man and his anti -affirmative. The judge ruled that the trial had little chance of success.

So, you all remember Edward Blum, right? No? Well, don’t feel bad.

He’s just as much an ordinary Caucasian as the client who put his name on the map, Abigail Fisher.

You all remember Abigail Fisher, right? No? Well, don’t feel bad. She’s basically the Toyota Camry of human beings. It is so common. She is your average white person’s favorite average white person. It is what McDonald’s is to the fast food industry, without the success: it is the most common but also the most mediocre. Abigail Fisher is the living embodiment of “Plain Jane”.

In 2016, Fisher was Blum’s great white hope after claiming she was denied entry to the University of Texas because she was white, only to he revealed that only 47 students admitted to UT the year she applied had grades lower than hers and that, of those applicants, 42 were as white as she was. It was also found that 168 black and Latino students with “combined AI/PAI scores the same or higher than (Fisher)” were rejected Also. This should give you some insight as to whether Blum is truly a fighter for racial injustice or an ambassador for false white grievances.

Today, Blum is back to his old tricks. Washington’s positiont reports that Blum, who considers himself a conservative activist, sued the Fearless Fund that grants $20,000 to black women who run businesses, alleging it engaged in “explicit racial exclusion” in running a program grants “open only to black women”.

Unfortunately for him but fortunately for the founders of Fearless Fund, Ariane Simone And Ayana Parsons, U.S. District Judge Thomas W. Thrash rejected arguments from his group, the American Equal Rights Alliance, during Tuesday’s hearing.


The judge said the Fearless Fund grant program, which has distributed more than $26 million in investments and $3 million in grants, qualifies as a charitable donation, which constitutes a form of protected speech under the First Amendment.

Thrash, who was appointed by President Bill Clinton, is expected to issue his opinion on the case later this week.

This all begs the question; Aren’t black women allowed to do things for black women? Haven’t white people been telling black people for generations that we need to stop looking for handouts, stop blaming the white man for everything and build our own communities? Isn’t the Fearless Fund a shining example of what black people are doing? White people told black people to “pull themselves up,” and now black people are helping black people do that, and white people are like: “No, wait, wait, not like that.”

Of course, Blum, the silly And gloomy mediocre white defender tramps (bars !), don’t see it that way.

“Our nation’s civil rights laws do not allow for racial distinctions because certain groups are overrepresented in various initiatives, while others are underrepresented,” he said in a statement.

However, attorneys involved with the Fearless Fund disagreed and praised the organization’s reputation for helping black businesses.

“What the plaintiffs are trying to do here is overturn a civil rights law,” said Alphonso David, a civil rights attorney and managing director of the Global Black Economic Forum on the legal team of the Fearless Fund, according to the Washington Post. . Over the past four years, Fearless Fund has invested in more than 40 companies, including popular brands like restaurant chain Slutty Vegan and makeup company Lip Bar.

Yeah…hello to the Fearless Fund. Just keep doing your thing and let your tearful white haters stay angry about it.
