Share on Facebook Tweet P Share Email Print Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is proposing a segregated coronavirus relief package that would exclude white Americans impacted by the economic downturn.
Fox News reported Sen. Schumer wants to appropriate $350 billion in funds for minority Americans over a five-year period.
The Economic Justice Act unveiled Thursday by Senate Democrats would address systemic racism and historic underinvestment in communities of color.
The proposed legislation says it will offer relief to non-white Americans through immediate and long-term investments in communities of color.
Those investments include child care programs, assistance for small businesses, tax credits for renters and Medicaid expansion for minorities.
Long before the pandemic, long before this recession, long before this years protests, structural inequalities have persisted in health care and housing, the economy and education, the New York Democrat said in a statement, according to Politico.
Covid-19 has only magnified these injustices and we must confront them with lasting, meaningful solutions, he added.
On Twitter, Schumer called the bill a needed step to address systematic racism and historic underinvestment in communities of color.

Yeah, my n-word! Chuck done came thru for us dawg!
No you stupid idiot - its a violation of the same civil rights law YOU claim to support!
This kind of racist and HATEFUL action must not stand.
The Democrat party must be destroyed.
This is clearly satirical, right?
Chuck wants to be Robin Hood and buy the Dems some votes
Equality under the law...
Unless you are the wrong color.
The Rats just cant help themselves, can they? There is no Rat idea thats too divisive, too inflammatory.
Schmucky obviously is very nervous about the black vote.
And he and his ilk have been in office for decades.
When are people going to realize that Democrats don't FIX anything, ever? They NEED the issue so you'll continue to vote them in to fix "the issue", a glaring truth that voters never seem to clue in on.
Reparations by any other name is still reparations.
The Civil War dead and wounded already paid it.
Sen. Schumer wants to appropriate $350 billion in funds
Put the money to the wall and border security. It will all ethnicities.
The only “systemic racism” I see is an insane anti-white bias promoted by power hungry Democrats who think we’re living in South Africa.
I guess that “color blind society” stuff went out the window as soon as they saw the possibility of more free stuff that WE pay for.
Anything to get the vote..this is racist to the core.
If I ever come across some lefty pushing for reparations I'm going to say I'm all for it.... a lot of Union soldiers died to free the slaves so what are the descendants of slaves going to pay me as a descendant of Union troops? Gimmedat!
Read the small print , “Reparations”
“”Long before the pandemic, long before this recession, long before this years protests, structural inequalities have persisted in health care and housing, the economy and education, the New York Democrat said in a statement, according to Politico.””
But I just became aware of it...I’ve only been in the Senate for 22 years and I’m sorry for being so ignorant - I’ll try to do better!
I've got that! SHOW ME THE MONEY!
Exactly, Why should us northeners pay for it? My 6th great grandfather lost 5 of 7 sons fighting for the North. Where is our money?
