Yet another case of racism against
my Black people. They know what the
Black farmers have need of yet they
still deny them that. More than 800 black
farmers have filed a new lawsuit against the
Agriculture Department 2 weeks after
Congress reopened a 1999 settlement
over past discrimination.
If their suit is successful,
the case could cost the government
several billion dollars along with
the $980 million in damages contributed
in the original settlement.
THe Lawsuit is organized by the Virginia
Based National black Farmers Association.
823 farmers who did the suing are from
JOhn BOyd, another African American
farmer who built the group said he
expects another 5,000 to join the
THe suit is the latest development
in the federal government’s April 1999
settlement of a class action lawsuit

These are things they are entitled to.
They must respect the Black Farmers
or lose what they have. I’m so sick

2/3rds of 22,500 farmers who
filed suit were awarded damages. That’s
some progress, but those folks can
allow more people to help. I expect
Those who filed late said that
their lawyers made mistakes of that they
did not know of the deadline.
THe deadline was allowed to go on longer
for those who could show extraordinary
But federal courts kept on
denying requests to reopen the settlement
until Congress came with the farm bill.
THe enacted bill allows plaintiffs to
seek expedited claims of $50,000
under a lower threshold of proof
than a typical civil case. ALso,
plaintiffs can seek larger damages
