Who is paying for these test and/or where does the money come from?

I just found out that it is pretty much impossible for a white male to get a test in Oregon. Minorities and illegals get it without any problems. Isn’t that racist against whites? Reverse racism anyone? Could you have your so called reporters go out and find out about this? It’s not bad enough that a garbage official only had white peoples wearing a mask and the blacks and Hispanics, including illegals, can walk around like they own America. Disgraceful. I’m waiting for an answer

EDITOR: We have not found that to be the case, however NO ONE can typically walk in and get tested in Oregon. Most locations require an appointment AND a doctor's order. Contact your doctor and they will advise you.
