    Same mindless liberal approach. Handouts are the worst. They should use that money to invest in the economies of low income areas, pump some business in there, it will be so much better money spent in the long run. What's the point of a handout?

    Bribing. It's a handout to make these people their b*tches and feel like they are dependent on others. It's really sad.

    It's been the same formula for over 50 years now.

    Honest question. If a city did it where white people got $500 per month but minorities were left out of it what would the reaction be? Why is this any different flipped around? Why not include all races in it?

    My guess is that, from the article you posted, this is a fact:

    The project targets groups with the city's greatest wealth disparities, per the Oakland Equality Index, which reveals the median income for White households in Oakland to be nearly three times that of Black households.

    Yet you're OK with giving billionaire corporations and CEO's handouts from Republican politicians.

    I agree with affirmative action when it comes to stuff like college admissions, scholarships, or career employment.

    But what this country is experiencing right now is different. This pandemic is an international crisis that is affecting people of all backgrounds, not just minorities. So that being said, basing Oakland's stimulus checks on income level or unemployment status solves this problem. There's no need to differentiate between racial or ethnic backgrounds here.

    Agreed, if this is what the topic says then itís absolutely ridiculous and frankly should be illegal. Just like you said tie it to other indicators and blacks who are more likely in the position will be disproportionately affected by the benefits.

    If they are targeting those that are in the worst situations regardless of race then it is fine.

    Add race as a qualifier and this is a problem and beyond that, horrible optics as well.

    No I'm not, I'd rather give to lower class than elite class.
