Historically, Black farmers have been denied loans and grants from the USDA.
Congress approved debt relief for farmers of color back in March, but where is the money?
$5 billion was allocated to farmers of color who typically do not receive the loans like their white counterparts. That money should have been dispersed in June.
White farmers have been crying discrimination, and they have been holding up the fund to black farmers with lawsuits.
Right now, there’s a lawsuit In Texas.
Attorney Maryum Jordan from Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law is representing the Black farmers. She spoke with Roland Martin during Thursday’s edition of #RolandMartinUnfiltered about the motion to intervene filed on Tuesday by the Federation of Southern Cooperatives/Land Assistance Fund.
The motion includes declarations from six farmers alleging discrimination from the Agriculture Department and Farm Service Agency loan programs.
