Oregon grants aid to strippers doing it tough so long as they’re black, native or trans.
Are Indian strippers a big thing there? Do they perform just wearing a feather headdress and high moccasins? Asking for a friend.
Strip clubs are very popular in the Portland area, but I’m not experienced enough to answer Mr. Vladivostok’s query. I don’t frequent those establishments, not that I object to them. No doubt that, for the right price, a dancer would be willing to dress up for this fetish.
The Oregonian fills us in a little more:
Nearly $600,000 in federal COVID-relief funds is available for Oregon strippers and sex workers of color who have been financially impacted by the coronavirus pandemic…
Priority will be given to Black, Indigenous and transgender applicants, those with minor dependents living in the household and those experiencing homelessness…
The funds are part of $45 million in health equity grants distributed by the Oregon Health Authority to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in tribal communities and communities of color, which have been disproportionally affected by the virus.
The grants will allow Haymarket Pole Collective to provide financial assistance to 75 people, who can receive up to $1,600 in rent assistance, $500 in utility assistance and $150 toward internet services.
Our slide into a racial caste system has been going on for decades, under the guise of “leveling the playing field” and “helping the disadvantaged.”
I hope somebody sues them for racial discrimination, since this appears to be a blatant violation of Federal law. From the ACLU’s webpage:
The Constitution prevents the government from subjecting you to worse treatment because of your race, ethnicity, or national origin in any situation.
State and local laws may also provide protection against discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, or national origin.
Obviously, if this grant is subject to a racial hierarchy, then racial discrimination is taking place. Will the ACLU support white strippers in a lawsuit against the State of Oregon? I doubt it.
It’s frustrating that government openly discriminates against white people, but it’s even more frustrating that white advocacy groups are not allowed to exist in the United States except as persecuted, marginalized, underground movements. No powerful organizations, and no wealthy individuals, are willing to fight for equal rights for whites. If there ever was a “marginalized” group in the United States, it’s working-class whites.
If I ever do visit a strip club, I’ll make it a point to only tip the white strippers. “Strippers of color” don’t need my donations; they can go to the government.
