At least three guaranteed income projects in the San Francisco Bay Area are now reportedly publicly discriminating against white citizens, limiting or prohibiting their participation in no-strings-attached payment schemes.

Lawyers claim that the programs, which are all publicly financed, violate both the US and California state constitutions, as well as civil rights statutes that prohibit race discrimination in contracting and by beneficiaries of government monies.

The Black Economic Equity Movement will provide $500 per month to “Black young adults,” the Abundant Birth Project will provide $1,000 per month to “Black and Pacific Islander mothers.”

In addition the Guaranteed Income for Transgender People program will provide $1,200 per month and prioritize enrollment of transgender as well as “Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC).”

The programs are funded, respectively, by the National Institutes of Health, the California Department of Social Services, and the city of San Francisco.

According to the executive director of the American Civil Rights Project, all three initiatives appear to violate the 14th Amendment, which prohibits states from discriminating based on race, as well as the California constitution and the Civil Rights Act of 1866, which prohibit racial discrimination in contracting.

The Black Economic Equity Movement appears to be in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits racial discrimination by beneficiaries of government monies.

It remains to be seen whether the apparent civil rights violations will lead to court room challenges for the far-left programs in question.
