Posted on 05/29/2012 1:41:43 PM PDT by PapaBear3625
The Commerce Department is considering naming Arab Americans a socially and economically disadvantaged minority group that is eligible for special business assistance.
The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) petitioned Commerce earlier this year to ask that Arab Americans be made eligible for the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA), which helps minority entrepreneurs gain access to capital, contracts and trade opportunities.
Commerce is asking for comment about whether there is social and economic discrimination against Arab Americans, along with examples of it occurring. The MBDA will decide whether or not to accept the petition by June 27.

Hillary wants every one of them to own a gas station.
They should just cut to the chase and say that you can’t discriminate against anybody except white people, and it is mandatory that you discriminate against them.
Wouldn’t it be so much easier if they made Caucasians a sub-human species and be done with it?
Argg, you beat me by a minute!
There is no such thing as a "muslim" American...A contradiction in terms..
ping to list keepers
It is actually aimed for “Arab-Americans”, but we all know that Arab Christians need not apply, and Pakistanis will be covered even though they aren’t Arab.
It will happen soon enough — don’t jump the gun.
So we need to form the Redneck Anti-Discrimination League (RAL) and see if we can special privileges, too?
Wonder if this wll apply to Christian and Jewish Arabs?
More likely Obama would prefer to send us all to “The Camps”.
Wonder if this wll apply to Christian and Jewish Arabs?
How much discrimination do Muzzies bring on themselves ... like causing people to laugh at this family portrait for example?
They fully intend to subjugate white males for no other reason than we are the largest portion of the population and we are the ones who are armed to the teeth. They need to hammer us down so they can rule.
My Aunt Bee, the keeper of my rich family lore, once saw my grandmother wearing a dark sheet and she said she looked very Arab....Time to check the Box...Yippee!/sarc
The last paragraph says "MBDA services are now offered to African-Americans, Puerto Ricans, Spanish-speaking Americans, American Indians, Eskimos, Aleuts, Hasidic Jews, Asian-Pacific Americans and Asian Indians."
Asian Indians can come over on an H1B, get permanent residency, and then qualify for minority set-asides?
They already get federal preferences. When our local post offices needed a concrete pad for parking spaces, they couldn’t hire a local company. Instead an Arab owned company came 70 miles from Detroit and spent 3 weeks doing an 8 hour job and didn’t even finish.
You are right Brother.
We are an endangered species.
And veterans who have been fighting and dying for over a decade for and with these people are no where on the list....
yet we support the troops... how does that work again?
Gay wallets were opened over the ‘marriage’ comment - now Arab wallets will open.
Just because so many of them are morally handicapped?
I will second that motion, it is hard for rednecks to get jobs with all the time spent keeping up with NASCAR, hunting and fishing what do these people expect!
So our government has declare one more race that white people are superior to and that need a government funded crutch.
Who’s going to determine if you may well be a redneck?
Would future airings of the Beverly Hillbillies be banned?
What about Dukes of Hazzard?
Will this line of humor be punished as insensitive?
What about Druze? Would Bedouins be regarded as Arabs, or nomadic peoples?
They’re not look for a hand out. Unless it is to cut off an offender’s hand.
Don’t knock the hunting. Come and listen to a story ‘bout a man named Jed...
I do quite a bit of all three just being sarcastic.
This is insane. However, I’d actually qualify to check the box.
Time for Liawatha to discover another recipe...
Let’s not forget the horrible negative stereotypes exacerbated by such movies as Pete’s Dragon.
I’m beginning to think that white males are the only subspecies on the planet capable of executing any plan without “help”. What happens to the world when there all the white males are gone and there no longer is anyone to provide “help”, will the world revert back to the stone age?
As far as I am concerned if they are foreign born and now want to suck at Uncle Sam’s feet let them return to the land of their birth. This is crap pure and simple. The O administration wants Sharia as the law of the land and Allah as the only true object of worship. This is demonic any way you look at it
There’s also The Jooos! and Asians. We must all make many, many babies. Outlaw all contraceptives for white males, Jooos! and Asians. Some poor, underprivileged Arab’s handouts might depend on it.
Great, I think there are a few convenience stores in Alaska still owned by white people that they can snap up now.
CAIR raised $400,000 at ONE banquet this year!!
I’ll bet that Black Muslims will be covered by this rule before Arab Christians.
What’s considered “Arab?” Because I know some Middle Easterners that get a bit offended at that term. They aren’t Muslim either.
considering an area of our suburbs, which is very high-end homes, is quickly turning very arab. These are the kind of homes with marble entry ways....and a home goes up for sale and days later it is being sold to an arab/muslim family.
How do I know their muslims? The women don’t work and I see them in their hajibs getting the mail or sitting in the driveway with the kids.
They are not a minority that needs financial help...
Commerce Department: Another department that needs to be abolished.
These kinds of stories just prove my point.
they are more and more irrelevant.
Because Saudi Arabia financing the Islamist colonization simply isn’t enough.
Can any of this taxpayer money go to Christian refuges from the Middle East or are we strictly talking about poor downtrodden Islamists?
Political correctness sucks and the ACLU is MIA as usual.
And yet the Left still insists on calling it “being born with white privilege”.
First thing people seem to be sizing up these days is judging me by my sex and skin color and determining I’m not “diverse” enough for the offices.
Persians/Iranians need not apply.
When will white people have had enough? When will civil disobedience start? When will people start making frivolous demands and monkey wrench agencies like the IRS or others. After baseball season maybe?
Dumber and dumber, white people are chumps. The culmination of Affirmative Action.
