Racism is now officially considered a “public health crisis” in the state of Oregon.
This week, both the Oregon House of Representatives and Senate voted to pass HB 4052, which declares “racism” as a “public health crisis” and will allocate millions of dollars in taxpayer funding to specific populations based solely on their race.
In other words, the bill aims to combat health inequities by, effectively, enshrining racism into state law. It explicitly excludes whites from the program entirely.
From the Oregon state website’s overview of the bill:
“[HB 4052] Requires Oregon Health Authority, guided by advisory committee to be convened by authority, to provide grants to operate two culturally and linguistically specific mobile health units, as pilot program, to improve health outcomes of Oregonians impacted by racism…
…to develop recommendations on how to fund robust culturally and linguistically specific intervention programs designed to prevent or intervene in health conditions that result in inequitable and negative outcomes for individuals who are Black or indigenous, people of color and members of tribes.”
However, there is a small carve out that could allow for some whites to be allowed into the program if they identify as a member of the LGBTQ community – because that somehow has to do with “racism” – but there is a qualifier that they have to be negatively affected either directly or indirectly by racism, so maybe they just have to claim to have a Rachel Dolezal-style transracial situation going on to gain eligibility.
Individuals who will be eligible for the program were listed in the text of the bill as follows:
“’Communities of color’ means members of the following racial or ethnic communities:
(A) American Indian
(B) Alaska Native
(C) Hispanic or Latino
(E) Native Hawaiian
(F) Pacific Islander
(G) Black or African American
(H) Middle Eastern
(I) North African
(J) Mixed race; or
(K) Other racial or ethnic minorities.
‘Priority populations’ means groups that disproportionately experience avoidable illness, death or other poor health or social outcomes attributable directly or indirectly to racism, including:
(A) Communities of color
(B) Oregon’s nine federally recognized tribes and the descendants of the members of the tribes
(E) Migrant and seasonal farmworkers
(F) Low-income individuals and families
(G) Persons with disabilities; and
(H) Individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer or who question their sexual or gender identity.”
The measure is likely “constitutionally illegal” because of the race-based qualifications, according to State Representative Anna Scharf, who voted against its passing.
She explained her decision in a letter published last week:
“[HB 4052] allocates almost $2 million to this program which will only serve specific populations based on race and ethnicity. it does nothing to address health inequities of all people, just specific ethnic groups, and may even be constitutionally illegal. Therefore, I voted no.”
Unfortunately, Scharf and the few others who voted against the measure were unable to stop it from being green-lit.
After passing through the democrat-controlled legislature with ease, the unconstitutional bill is set to head to radical progressive governor Kate Brown to be signed into law, which is expected sometime this coming week.
Racism solving racism – Progress works in a full circle, ain’t it great?
Have you received Salvation from Jesus the Messiah? Time is running out. Jesus will return very soon. The signs of His return are everywhere in this crazy world we are living in. Please read below so that you can be saved. Jesus is the only way to Heaven. The Words below are directly from the Bible, so you can trust them.
For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)
If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all )is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)
“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. IF YOU KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. (John 15:9)
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
For those of us who persevere and do what Jesus says to do, we have this to look forward to in eternity: And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
