The Biden administration is offering $100 to Americans who get vaccinated, as the CDC vaccine rollout hits a brick wall.

The $100 payments can be paid for with the $350 billion in aid granted to state, local, territorial and tribal governments under the American Rescue Plan Act.

"Throughout America's vaccination efforts, we have seen that financial incentives serve as a motivating factor for some people to get vaccinated," the White House said on Thursday.

The Biden administration also confirmed Pres. Joe Biden will require all federal government employees and onsite contractors to provide proof of vaccination or take weekly PCR tests.

"After months and months of cases going down, we're seeing a spike in COVID cases. Why? Because of this new form, this new variant called the delta variant," Biden said on Thursday.

The United States Postal Service has declined to comply with Biden's vaccine mandate.

The American Postal Workers Union that represents over 200,000 U.S. Postal Service employees, released a statement Wednesday declaring it's not the federal government's job to force vaccines on Americans.

Black Americans expressed their frustration on social media after House Speaker agreed with Pres. Joe Biden saying "the Latino community is the future of America."

Pelosi made the statement during her weekly press conference on Thursday, July 22.

"Well, you want to talk politics? Yeah, obviously the Latino community is the future of America," Pelosi said. She then praised the congressional Hispanic caucus for going door-to-door to get out the vote for Biden in the presidential election.

Black Twitter was not happy.

One Twitter user wrote:

"Thank you to the Hispanic Caucus for proving to me that Latino issues take precedence over Black issues in America."

Another user tweeted:

"Damn. Talk about benign neglect. Shameful. Yet they depend on Blacks to get them in office. We are now relegated to 4th class citizenship."

And a third person wrote:

"They have to since Latinos don't blindly vote for them 90% every election. They have to work for they're votes so they are. Meanwhile they don't have to do anything for the Black vote."

"You're OK. You're not going to – you're not going to get Covid if you have these vaccinations... If you're vaccinated, you're not going to be hospitalized, you're not going to be in the ICU unit, and you're not going to die."

According to reports, 99% of all patients currently hospitalized with Covid are unvaccinated.

But the percentage of "breakthrough" cases among the fully vaccinated is rising.

WSB-TV news anchor Fred Blankenship and his entire family contracted Covid-19 despite being fully vaccinated and quarantining.

The well-liked Atlanta newsman suffered difficulty breathing and a temporary loss of taste and smell. He announced his symptoms in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

"Breakthrough positives as they are known are very real," he wrote. "I thought because I was fully vaccinated the symptoms would be mild. They were not."

However, Blankenship said despite his symptoms, his doctor told him it could've been a lot worse if he had not gotten the vaccine.

"My doctor told me the fact that I got the vaccination and stayed in relatively good shape kept me out of the hospital. It's been a big reminder that health is the true wealth."

The White House claims just 12 social media accounts are responsible for 65% of Covid-19 mRNA vaccine misinformation online.

The White House based its opinion on an article by the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH).

After analyzing 812,000 anti-vaccine posts on Facebook and Twitter, the CCDH determined that just 12 people shared 65% of anti-vaccine posts.

Rizza Islam runs of the 12 accounts behind most online vaccine misinformation, according to the CCDH.

The other 12 accounts include Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Joseph Mercola, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, Ty & Charlene Bollinger, and others.

Rizza Islam is described as a "religious zealot" and a "California based Scientologist with a large Instagram following."

Most of the 12 have been banned from other social media sites. The White House wants them banned on Facebook as well. But Facebook is hesitant to ban them because the 12 accounts have over 59 million followers between them.

Last Friday, Pres. Joe Biden accused Facebook of "killing people" by declining the White House's request to remove the 12 accounts for spreading conspiracy theories, hoaxes, and other misinformation.

In a press release over the weekend, Facebook responded by saying the White House was making Facebook a "scapegoat" because Biden missed his July 4 goal of 70% of Americans with at least one vaccine dose.

On Monday, Biden backtracked, saying that while he meant what he said about Facebook helping to spread misinformation, he didn't really mean Facebook was literally killing people.

Joe Biden used the woke term "LatinX" while referring to every Latino and Hispanic American as immigrants.

boy gif The 46th U.S. president made the comment while discussing low vaccination rates among minority groups, including Blacks and Hispanics, during a speech in North Carolina on Thursday.

In addition to touring a mobile vaccination unit, Biden spoke to a mixed crowd of Blacks and Latinos at the Green Road Community Center.

Biden claimed Latinos and Hispanics didn't want to take the experimental spike protein injections because they feared being deported.

Biden said:

"There's a reason why it was harder to get African Americans -- initially -- to get vaccinated, because they're used to being experimented on. Tuskegee airmen and others, people have long memories. It's awful hard as well to get Latinx vaccinated, Why? They're worried they'll be vaccinated and deported."

The response on social media was outrage, particularly among Hispanic and Latino Americans who object to being referred to as immigrants or "LatinX."

One Twitter user wrote:

"This is just an outrageous statement from President Biden. Latinos don't like to be called 'Latinx,' and you're racist to assume that they're all illegal immigrants."

Another user wrote:

"Joe Biden claiming Latinos don't want to get vaccinated because they’re worried about getting deported is about as racist as it gets. Par for the course for old racist Joe Biden."

A third user tweeted:

"Biden literally said getting Latinx vaccinated is difficult because they think they will be deported if they go in for the vaccine Seems pretty racist to me to imply all 'Latinx' are illegal immigrants. If Trump made that statement yall would be furious!"

And someone else tweeted:

"Now we know who the real racist president is Biden Goes Woke, Calls Latinos 'LatinX' and Assumes They Are All Illegal Aliens."

D.L. Hughley is among the descendants of slaves in America who are side-eyeing Juneteenth becoming a federal holiday.

The comedian is among Black Americans who are on the fence about how swiftly Juneteenth became a federal holiday.

Juneteenth celebrates the day slaves in Galveston, Texas learned they were free - two years after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation on Sept. 22, 1862.

Most Black people outside of Texas had never heard of Juneteenth until President Donald Trump decided to hold a rally on that same day last year.

Trump later changed the date of his rally, saying, "I did something good: I made Juneteenth very famous."

Semi-retired singer Beyonce quickly recorded a track - "Black Parade" - to capitalize on the controversy.

The very next year, Juneteenth became a federal holiday, leaving most people Googling to learn the meaning behind it.

Many are now questioning whether Juneteenth would be a federal holiday at all if Trump had chosen a different date for his rally last year.

D.L. says Black people have been demanding reparations, justice and equality for decades, but instead got a 3-day weekend.

There's another reason D.L. and others are wary of the new holiday -- several U.S. Senators who voted for the bill are trying to block schools from teaching about critical race theory.

As he put it, it's hard to explain the holiday if critical race theory is censored.

In the end, D.L. is all for another day to BBQ, but he adds, this holiday does nothing to level the playing field.

Former president Barack Obama responded indirectly to leaked text messages that reveal Hunter Biden is comfortable using a racial slur among his friends.

Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images

In a new interview with Anderson Cooper, Obama praised his daughters, Sasha, left, and Malia, right, for their personal views on "cancel culture," saying his girls don't expect everyone to be perfect.

"[T]hey have a pretty good sense of 'Look, we don't expect everybody to be perfect. We don't expect everybody to be politically correct all the time, but we are going to call out institutions or individuals if they are being cruel.'"

Some social media users suggest Obama knew the texts would leak, and he was getting ahead of the scandal by rationalizing Hunter's behavior as imperfect.

"If @DonaldJTrumpJr had just ONE text like this, the media mob would be enraged!!! Where is the #cancelculture," wrote one Twitter user.

Another user wrote: "Imagine if this were Don Jr.

The overload of outrage would break Twitter."

Exclusive emails obtained by DailyMail.com reveal Hunter Biden used the N-word in multiple text messages to his white attorney, George Mesires.

The U.S. president's son dropped the N-word multiple times in text messages to his own lawyer -- who didn't object to the word.

In a December 2018 text exchange, Hunter, 51, wrote, "How much money do I owe you. Becaause [sic] ni**a you better not be charging me Hennessy rates."

In another text exchange with his attorney, Hunter wrote: "And I only love you because you're black."

His attorney replied: "It's so annoying when you interject with frivolity."

Hunter responded: "True dat ni**a."

So far, Mesires has not commented on the brewing scandal publicly.

As of Wednesday, only Fox News, Yahoo News, the Washington Examiner and the NY Post had covered Hunter's text message scandal.

Twitter user and conservative journalist Benny (@bennyjohnson) wrote:

"Weird how everyone who screamed about 'racism' & 'white supremacy' for the last 4 years are completely *silent* about member of the First Family Hunter Biden using the N-word multiple times along with racist stereotypes & memes.

Isn't this what you have been waiting for?"

His attorney replied: "It's so annoying when you interject with frivolity."

Hunter responded: "True dat ni**a."

The text exchange was recovered from a laptop confirmed to belong to Hunter.

Also on the laptop was a meme of former President Barack Obama embracing his then-vice president Biden. Obama is pictured with Joe and Hunter in a photo dated January 30, 2010.

The meme reads: "Obama: Gonna miss you, man Joe: Can I say it? Just this once? Obama: *sigh* go ahead Joe: You my n***a, Barack"

The texts emerged just days after Hunter's father, Joe Biden gave a speech on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa massacre in Oklahoma.

As the texts went viral on Tuesday, many on social media said Hunter Biden is "cool," and they see no problem with his use of the N-word.

One DailyMail.com reader wrote:

"All the Mail readers cry themselves to sleep every night because Biden whooped their boy in the election and his son is cool."

Joe Biden sparked outrage on Black Twitter when he suggested Black business owners would be as successful as white entrepreneurs if they had lawyers and accountants.

The president made the comments during a press conference in Tulsa, OK, where he spoke at the 100-year anniversary of the Black Wall Street race riot.

Biden said young black entrepreneurs are "just as capable of succeeding given the chance as white entrepreneurs are, but they don't have lawyers, they don't have accountants."

As usual, Biden's remarks about the Black community drew confusion and dismay on social media.

Conservative commentator @KatiePavlich tweeted: "Wait until Joe Biden finds out black people are lawyers and accountants."

Another Twitter user said, Black people don't know how to get IDs and they can't get lawyers or accountants.

And a third user wrote, "If you have an accountant, you ain't Black!"

Joe Biden sparked controversy when he suggested people who wear masks are anti-vaxxers who should be treated "with kindness and respect."

On Thursday, the CDC announced individuals who are fully vaccinated can remove their masks indoors and outdoors.

Biden and his vice president, Kamala Harris, both removed their masks during a press conference at the White House on Thursday.

In a tweet dubbed "Biden's Rule" by social media users, the president wrote:

"The rule is now simple: get vaccinated or wear a mask until you do.

The choice is yours."

Biden also said, if you see someone wearing a mask, "please treat them with kindness and respect. We've had too much conflict, too much bitterness, too much anger, too much politicization of this issue about wearing masks. Let's put it to rest."

Critics say Biden's rule puts pressure on Americans to get the experimental mRNA vaccine because his tweet suggests people who still wear masks are not vaccinated.
