The Californians for Equal Rights Foundation (CFER) is suing the city of San Francisco and several other government entities over guaranteed income programs that discriminate on the basis of race, the group announced in a Thursday press release.
The lawsuit challenges the City and County of San Francisco, the San Francisco Unified School District, the University of California San Francisco and the California Health and Human Services Agency over four government programs which offer routine basic income payments to individuals on the basis of race. The 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and California’s state constitution both ban preferential treatment on the basis of race, CFER is arguing.

“In 2020, 9.65 million Californian voters resoundingly rejected racial preferences by voting down Prop. 16. But the progressive status quo seems to be unconcerned with observing the law and following public will,” Wenyuan Wu, a CFER spokesman, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
