Pretty sure the 2020 election results reflected a lack of Biden support in North Dakota. This ain't gonna help.

Seriously, how can a white man in America catch a break?

Equal treatment to be argued in U.S. District Courts.

Seems in response to the pandemic, the United States Department of Agriculture and the Biden Administration proposed a loan forgiveness package that could potentially pay up to 120% of guaranteed or direct farm loan balances.  It wasn't just Joe Biden operating solo on the loan forgiveness package, it was part of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act passed by Congress earlier this year.  The website Inforum.com reports that the forgiveness package had one little omission...

White people.

The program pays up to 120% of direct or guaranteed farm loan balances for Black, American Indian, Hispanic, Asian American or Pacific Islander farmers. President Joe Biden's administration created the loan forgiveness program as part of its COVID-19 pandemic relief plan.

Well there ya go...so, since April white folks in Texas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, South Dakota, Wyoming, Florida, Illinois and more have all filed cases that the program violates white farmer's rights.

U.S. District Judge pauses loan forgiveness program.

North Dakota got into the mix as well...

"Their concern is the inequality and discrimination against them just on the basis of their race or skin color,” said Glen Roper, lead attorney for the case filed in North Dakota.

Plaintiffs in the Minnesota and North Dakota cases include farmers from Ellendale and Pembina County, N.D., and Roseau County, Minn.

As pervasive and long-suffering as discrimination has been for white people in America, the point is driven home by lead attorney Glen Roper.

“Certainly, if our clients got their loans forgiven, that would give them a monetary benefit, but that’s not their goal so much as making sure there is equal treatment,” Roper said.

Back on July 8th a U.S. District Court Judge in Wisconsin entered a judgement that paused the program.  So, it's currently stuck in legal limbo.  Just remember- it's not about the money, it's about equality.

About darn time white people...free at last.
