Arab Americans Lobby For Special Assistance From Big Government – Cite 9-11 Attacks As Reason They Deserve Privileges

It’s an Obama World…

Arab Americans lobby for special business assistance for disadvantaged groups – cite 9-11 in their petition.
The Hill reported, via Moonbattery:

The Commerce Department is considering naming Arab Americans a socially and economically disadvantaged minority group that is eligible for special business assistance.

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) petitioned Commerce earlier this year to ask that Arab Americans be made eligible for the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA), which helps minority entrepreneurs gain access to capital, contracts and trade opportunities…

…The ADC petition cited “discrimination and prejudice in American society[,] resulting in conditions under which Arab-American individuals have been unable to compete in a business world.” The group claimed discrimination against Arab Americans increased after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
