[RCN] Do see this man’s name in the headlines and brace for impact? Well, get your helmet, because this is going to kick you in the teeth.
See that face? That’s the face you usually see on a five year old who was told he couldn’t have ice cream until after dinner . Maybe since he can tell his “promises” aren’t turning out as well as hoped, he needs to hand out SOMETHING to the more… shall we say, discriminating… of his supporters .
Trump is filing lawsuits against colleges which practice racial discrimination against white people… Unless the men who surround him got to where they are without college, looks like the nation is packed with “educated” white people to us… What’s this all about?
According to the NY Times, Trump is redirecting resources from the Justice Department’s civil rights division over affirmative action college admissions polices which discriminate against white people. This is known due to the issuance of an internal announcement document seeking lawyers interested in taking on the project. Click through to read what is actually stated in the document itself
You know Roger Clegg is doing a little happy dance right now with his big man on campus pulling for his views. He was quoted by the NY Times as having said, “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.”
Considering white people have had the right to attend university for much longer than other minority races, are you scratching your head and wondering where are all these white people lined up outside of the colleges begging for the right to go to school? No one can say it has NEVER happened, but, in this country, let’s get honest about who needs a little help getting equal rights.
Women, the LGBTQ community, anyone who is not considered “white” or light-skinned enough to pass as “mixed…” these are the people who have had to ask for the right to PAY for an education while white men have been educated for centuries. Do you think the Justice Department can actually take this request seriously?
According to the NY Times, Kristen Clarke believes this affirmative action is “misaligned with the division’s longstanding priorities” which were “to deal with the unique problem of discrimination face by our nation’s most oppressed minority groups.” As in, the reason the civil rights division is there is to support equality for the people who were not white and denied the same basic resources.
Does this lawsuit sound awfully petty to you? It has this nails-on-the-chalkboard irritating whine of egotistical gasbags who cannot stand to be anywhere but center stage. Clarke had more to say about that.
Clarke was quoted by the NY Times as having said, “This is deeply disturbing. It would be a dog whistle that could invite a lot of chaos and unnecessarily create hysteria among colleges and universities who may fear that the government may come down on them for their effort to maintain diversity on their campuses.”
So, asking the civil rights division to engage in this affirmative action is basically asking it to turn itself inside-out. Trump has already stamped his foot all over the trans community, Muslims, anyone who is not white, and the gay community, so now he has to shine his crown on the documented laws it has taken countless years to issue and enforce?
Trump’s pet Mr. Clegg has been noted as having suggested the project start focusing on investigating complaints received by the civil rights division about university admissions programs … maybe the good news is that could take FOREVER. That’s not his only suggestion.
Clegg has also suggested researching gaps in test scores and dropout rates among various racial groups of students in order to suggest the admissions departments may put more emphasis on race than on other qualifying factors. You hear what he is REALLY saying about the capabilities of anyone who is not like him, right?
Lawyerswho want to work on this project have until Saturday, August 9th, to submit their resumes. Who do you think will review the races of the people applying to work on this new, idiotic project? Have you ever heard Bo Burnham’s philosophy on the plight of the white man?
