MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — When Roy James needed money to buy equipment and dig an irrigation well for his father’s Mississippi farm, he applied for a loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture — but was turned down.
The USDA said it denied the application filed in 1995 because James had inadequate education and didn’t have farming experience — even though he had a college degree and had worked for years on the farm that grows soybean, wheat and cotton.
“I couldn’t understand why they turned me down,” James said. “It was confusing.”
He became more frustrated when he found out he missed a deadline to take part in a settlement reached by black farmers with the USDA over discrimination claims. The 1999 settlement of the Pigford v. Glickman lawsuit provided about $1 billion to 15,000 farmers who say the agency unfairly turned them down for loans because of their race between 1981 and 1996.
James said he missed the deadline because he did not find out in time, but he still filed a late claim. Thousands of other black farmers did the same — a move that may result in a payout, after all.

    I am NOT surprised…at all!
    I was NOT a racist (still not a racist) — however, I did notice “patterns of behavior” perpetrated by the black population that we do NOT see in any other race when I worked for the City of Dallas.
    I was one of 5-6 white women in a department of 57 blacks actually got called on the carpet by the Director of Planning and Development that other employees (blacks) were complaining that I “put out too much work deliberately to make them look bad!”
    Of course, he smiled the entire time to let me know he “agreed” to talk to me — and he did…
    since when is it a bad thing to work hard?
    When I was growing up, my dad used to tell me, “I don’t care if you are working for $1.25 an hour or $15.00 an hour, you give the man who hires you the best you have to give during work hours. It is called “Work Ethics”
