    Another Fab history lesson: 8 times the US govt gave white people handouts

    handouts I know that's a four letter word in modern American culture but the recipients of those freebies weren't always low-income single mothers trying to feed their kids, my how times change



    The 1862 Homestead Act

    This act gave away an overwhelming number of acreage to white settlers out west ó land that had been previously settled by Native Americans. According to California News Reel, nearly 270 million acres of Indian Territory was converted to private property for white settlers.

    The Social Security Act of 1935

    Enacted under President Rooseveltís New Deal, the Social Security Act provided a financial safety net for millions of workers and guaranteed that they would continue to be paid after retirement. But this luxury didnít extend to everyone, however. The act excluded agricultural and domestic laborers, many of whom were Black, Mexican and Asian.

    The G.I. Education Bill, Veteran Administration Housing Authority, and Health Care System

    Because of these government programs, (mostly white) members of the armed forces were able to continue their education, guaranteed private housing, and granted access to a public health care system. Many of these benefits were reserved for white veterans, however. For the handful of Black veterans who could participate in these programs, their benefits were still fewer than those of their white counterparts.

    Freed slaves got 40 acres and a mule + their savings stolen + no borrowing access. Some Spanish had land grants with Mexican labor. All Natives had their land stolen. We've not evolved. Except, now we shoot blacks and kennel Mexican children.
    See how beautiful we are and blessed, too. Together we are excellent.

    But just a reminder: all veterans benefited from many veterans benefits. VA hospitals have never been "white-only."

    Still, a good point.

    Another reminder that black soldiers who fought along white soldiers were subject to lynching and harassment during that area
