Thank you to NPR All Things Considered for hosting me to talk about aid for farmers of color in the American Rescue Plan.

Included in the legislation is $5 billion to address discrimination and exclusion in agriculture, debt relief for minority farmers, and directives to establish an equity commission to root out discrimination in USDA.

As we in Congress continue to fight for justice for black farmers, we must do so with the proper intelligence.

The number of Black farmers in the U.S. plummeted from nearly 1 million in 1920 to less than 46,000 almost a hundred years later.

They are the original pioneers of American agriculture, and we must make sure to uplift them and make them whole.

The American Rescue Plan will begin to right the long history of discrimination in agriculture, and I am proud to fight for justice for our Black farmers.

Last weekend, I joined Clayton County Fire & Emergency Services and Clayton County Senior Services Department to distribute 500 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to seniors in Clayton County.

As we continue to increase the supply of doses in Georgia, we must also stress the importance of coming back for the second shot in order to receive the most protection from the virus as possible.

Once the vaccine is available to you, please take it, because together, we can put an end to this pandemic.

Concerning the noise levels in the dormitories. I'm researching the SOPs now to figure out who to make the request for hearing protection to and how to follow-up if denied. https://www.facebook.com/100040669482707/posts/504104244288554/?app=fbl
Looking for advice, I thought of you, Congressman Scott. My son has no income. Three back surgeries years ago helped, but his COBRA ran out. He needed neck and knee surgery, and hip replacement. A hard-playing and hard-working fellow from childhood up, he wore his body out. Now he has a neurological condition that causes spells of severe confusion. Even with the help of an attourney, he failed to get disability. A couple years later, he tried again. Discouraged, he gave up. Today he got his stimulus check. It won't scan! The lady at Walmart explained that it's been happening to a number of unfortunate people. The numbers along the bottom edge are partially cut off. She has no idea what for him to do about it! Any advice would be much appreciated.

Congressman Scott, you voted "yea" in rollcall 75 to move HR1446, the "Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2021" forward. Why do you feel this bill will reduce crime? GA-13 would like to know why you chose to represent us in voting "yea."

This is the reality that Marla and her children now live in her own words...They have no answers, no communication from the GBI or the Sheriff's Department...They are silent. One thing they didn't take into account, IS THAT WE REFUSE TO REMAIN SILENT!! Where is the cry for justice that we have seen displayed on a national level? Where is the movement demanding JUSTICE FOR JERRY?? It's easy to call yourself an ally sitting behind a keyboard, but when it hits close to you...You are nowhere to be found!!! Please share and pressure the GBI and Wayne County Sheriff's Department to do their job!! #JusticeForJerry
Be like Bennie Thompson ! Vote NO on HR1
Just thought I would pass this note along to you. https://www.facebook.com/Metatroninc/ https://metatroninc.com/ There is a company located in the same state the President Elect Joe Bidon’s from This company is developing cutting edge bit coin and crypto currency mining software designed to run off solar energy. Yes I said solar energy!!! This is about as cutting edge and environmentally friendly has it gets. In fact, I think they are the only company doing such a venture. As with new state of the art revolutionary technology come the need for money. If you get Congress to provide hundreds of millions of dollars funding for this company , just think of the clout and prestige you alone might receive. Being known as the congressman would made the president's home state the center of green bitcoin and crypto-currency technology throughout the world? Well, you can answer that one. Genius would be a good phrase to start with. Along with all new technology venture there is risk of both success and failure.
Vote NO on H.R. 1
The Public Integrity Protection program is an attempt to muzzle those who have alternate opinions. It violates free speech. The courts, hopefully, will see the foolishness of the whole idea and will order it shut it down. This will add to the tension that is currently in Washington.
Stop the “Brain Jail” madness before it turns into “Brain Flight” ======================================== Dear Representative David Scott, Thank you for giving me this opportunity to bring your attention to the harms done to our nation by the Justice Dept’s abusive usage of “China Initiative”. Instead of focusing on protecting our national security, it is increasingly becoming a dragnet of Racial Profiling and Neo-McCarthyism that puts our nation’s brightest brains into federal prisons for “Crimes of Paperwork Omissions”. “Researching while Chinese” & “Teaching while Chinese” are as much about racial profiling as “Driving while Black”. It is racism pure and simple. Link to full text:
