Leftists LIVID: Trump Declares Blacks Officially Equal to Whites
UPDATE: Since we wrote this article, we learned the NY Times lied. Nevertheless, I want you to read what we wrote based on the article. I update this below after my appearance on FOX News recently. The article begins below with an update to follow.
In one move, Donald Trump has done more to help blacks than Obama could in ten lifetimes.
The New York Times Tuesday night revealed that the U.S. Justice Department plans to investigate and sue colleges over their affirmative action policies in admissions. Thus, President Trump’s Justice Department has declared blacks to be equal to whites.
Certainly the Left won’t see the president’s actions to sue colleges and universities over affirmative action as granting equality to blacks. Nevertheless, that’s exactly what this action does.
The Times cites an internal announcement to the Justice Department’s civil rights division that seeks lawyers for a project on “investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions.”
Predictably, the news shocked supporters of affirmative action in college admissions.
Recall the decision by the U.S. Supreme Court that upheld the admissions policies of the University of Texas at Austin pertaining to the consideration of race and ethnicity. Did the Supreme Court get it wrong?
Affirmative action was meant to grant access, and the legislation accomplished that goal. Blacks now represent part of the student body in every college across the nation. This was done for the sake of both fairness, but mostly for diversity. Ironically, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) are the least diverse colleges in America.
Consider that Leftists allow for almost all black colleges and universities, the idea being that blacks need to be among just blacks. Yet, they simultaneously call for diversity in all other areas of life?
And what of those HBCU educations?
While discussing one’s collegiate background, I have yet to hear anybody compare an HBCU education to that of Harvard. Put another way, what exactly has the HBCU produced except ethno-centric black graduates who believe the world will provide them unleveled affirmative action playing fields.
The signal from the Justice Department mandates that colleges and universities stop abusing black students. What good does it do a black student to get into college on sub-par grades only to find themselves sub-par students? And you can bet the next step in the lunacy is to question the high drop-out rates among black students, as compared to other races.
But we do have a great comparison: black unemployment rates.
What exactly has affirmative action accomplished in college education? A sub-par student graduates, and enters the work force, where he or she must compete with students afforded no luxuries. Outside of affirmative action in hiring, blacks will suffer. Companies fill their quotas, and those blacks hang on to their jobs. So the job pools shrinks each year for blacks, as companies have fulfilled their quotas. And though human development personnel are afraid to admit it, they don’t want more black employees.
Before you just to “racism” in my previous statement, understand the position of HR.
When hiring blacks, companies must take into account lots of baggage. Their risk go up exponentially, because the government adds a layer of “protection” for the so-called downtrodden, not afforded to whites.
What a load for blacks to carry into a job. The idea that you are a sub-par employee, due to your sub-par education, and so on.
On a personal level, my oldest son, a graduate of Wharton worked as an analyst for a financial firm. He was promoted faster than any analyst in the company, then moved to their “risk” area. While in the new department, he found an error in their risk algorithm, and saved the company millions of dollars. His new boss, an Asian man confided in my son that when he was added to his team, he figured my son to be an “affirmative action” hire.
My son’s boss added, “I’m excited to know that you are truly gifted”.
Blacks in America must grow up. American has grown beyond the need to coddle blacks. The civil rights movement wasn’t about putting one’s thumb on the scale for blacks. It was about allowing blacks to showcase our greatness, and letting the chips fall where they may.
By not allowing blacks to know exactly where we stand is racism of the highest order. I would ask anybody who believes they help blacks with these arcane policies, “Would you want this for your race? Or your children?”
I believe I speak for most blacks, when I say it’s time that Leftists allow blacks to face the real world. Roger Clegg, president of the Center for Equal Opportunity, agrees with me, as he told the Times he welcomed the new campaign by the Justice Department.
“The civil rights laws were deliberately written to protect everyone from discrimination, and it is frequently the case that not only are whites discriminated against now, but frequently Asian-Americans are as well,” he said.
The advocates replay the same worn out excuses.
Dan Losen, a lawyer who is director of the Center for Civil Rights Remedies at the University of California, Los Angeles, is distressed over the action.
“This is another example of how the administration is dismantling the Department of Justice, turning core constitutional protections upside down and the concept of remedying discrimination on its head,” he said. “What do you expect from a president that makes openly bigoted remarks about Mexican-American judges, has boasted about assaulting women, has a history of engaging in racially discriminatory housing practices and is fighting to ban entrants to our country based on their religious background? Make no mistake, the Trump administration’s positions are consistent with his bigoted statements and historical track record. Further, he hired Jeff Sessions to run the DOJ despite Sessions’s own horrible track record on civil rights, and over the objections of every known civil rights group and nearly half the Senate.”
I repeat, discrimination in higher ed has been remedied, except in HBCUs. There, discrimination is practiced openly.
However, leave it to people like Rosen to bring in all the other non-racist comments by Trump or his satellites. The Left use Mexicans, women, and Muslims in order to bolster their fake narratives. The Left try these specious arguments, as their talking points fall flat.
Nonetheless, the bigotry of low expectations lives lavishly with Leftists. When their policies are examined, only one conclusion can be drawn: they want blacks to fail.
Thankfully, President Trump seeks to equalize blacks in education. Hopefully, he will do so in all of society soon.
Update: Asian Students filed the lawsuits.
Nothing changes. It was only a matter of time before this would happen. As I argued on Fox News, the idea that Asians must score 1310 on the SAT, and blacks 1085 is ridiculous. Blacks are set up for failure.
If you get into a great school with substandard scores, your likelihood for success increases greatly. Moreover, not challenging black students to aspire to better hurts them in the long run.
