Government officials are handing out tax dollars based on race and gender, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. One example is in Arlington, Va., where I live. The Arlington County government announced that it will hand out grants to small businesses based on “considerations” such as whether the business is “women and/or minority-owned.”
