    As far as I know, there is only one place left in American law where racism is still codified into law. That place is the 8(a) Business Development Program.

    The below listed people (races) are eligible for participation in the 8(a) program (due to presumed social disadvantage).
    Black Americans;
    Hispanic Americans;
    Native Americans (American Indians, Eskimos, Aleuts, or Native Hawaiians);
    Asian Pacific Americans (persons with origins from Burma, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, Japan, China (including Hong Kong), Taiwan, Laos, Cambodia (Kampuchea), Vietnam, Korea, The Philippines, U.S. Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands (Republic of Palau), Republic of the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Samoa, Macao, Fiji, Tonga, Kiribati, Tuvalu, or Nauru);
    Subcontinent Asian Americans (persons with origins from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, the Maldives Islands or Nepal)

    Whites do not qualify for the Small Business Administration's 8(a) Business Development Program.
    "The purpose of the 8(a) BD program is to assist ELIGIBLE small disadvantaged business concerns compete in the American economy through business development."
    The effect of the 8(a) BD program is to lock the door on very small struggling white owned businesses.

    EVERY contract offered by the federal government locally in my industry (Carpet Cleaning) is reserved 100% for 8(a) program participants.
