On Friday, Vice President Kamala Harris suggested that disaster relief should first go to minorities suffering from the fallout of Hurricane Ian.
Harris appeared with left-wing activist Priyanka Chopra at a woman’s leadership forum in Washington, D.C. The Democratic National Committee sponsored the event.
“It is our lowest income communities and our communities of color that are most impacted by these extreme conditions and impacted by issues that are not of their own making,” the vice president said. “And so we have to address this in a way that is about giving resources based on equity, understanding that we fight for equality, but we also need to fight for equity, understanding not everyone starts out at the same place.”
“And if we want people to be in an equal place, sometimes we have to take into account those disparities and do that work,” Harris added.
You can’t make this up. Kamala Harris said the administration will be giving hurricane resources ‘based on equity’ by directing funds to ‘communities of color.’ I guess everyone else is just screwed,” Students for Trump founder Ron Fournier tweeted.

Not that any conservative is this overtly racist, but just imagine if one was and said something this over the top in a public venue…

Should be according to greatest need, not race or anything else

This is false. @VP's rhetoric is causing undue panic and must be clarified. FEMA Individual Assistance is already available to all Floridians impacted by Hurricane Ian, regardless of race or background.

"Can you clarify what you meant about ‘equity’ for hurricane relief?"
