President-Elect Joe Biden raised eyebrows on Sunday when he stated his administration will prioritize assistance to businesses based on race.
"Our priority will be Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American owned small businesses, women-owned businesses, and finally having equal access to resources needed to reopen and rebuild," said Biden.
This statement drew criticism on social media with many pointing out the divisive nature of identity politics.
