Drama in Texas

The 3 videos I’ve posted below provide more context for the NPR story (U.S. Farmers of Color Were About To Get Loan Forgiveness. Now The Program Is On Hold by Joe Hernandez) I shared back on June 14, 2021, regarding the Biden Administration’s efforts to provide a financial remedy to farmers of color who have suffered from years of discriminatory practices by the USDA.

Thanks to TikTok content producer @bodegabites for discussing how a law suit filed by Texas Department of Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller is one more obstacle facing the Biden Administration’s loan forgiveness efforts, and how Miller’s actions are a slap in the face to Texas’ Black and Brown farmers.
