Obama Set to Unleash Lawsuits to Mandate Racial Preferences

he transformation of the American economy and polity into a racial spoils system has been a defining goal of President Obama’s first term in office. It is set to become more defining in his second term, especially in light of a federal appeals court ruling two weeks ago. Obama, by various accounts, wants to be more aggressive about suing banks, employers, schools and other institutions whose practices, however unintentionally, adversely affect “disadvantaged” (read: nonwhite) populations. This is the doctrine of “disparate impact.”Attorney General Eric Holder already has used it to extract hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements from Wells Fargo and other major banks. Its widespread application is further evidence, as if any more were needed, that “civil rights” has become a well-organized shakedown racket.

These past few years National Legal and Policy Center has been anything but muted in its criticism of government-mandated racial preferences. A major task has been to unmask it true character. Typically, mandatory preferences come dressed in euphemisms such as “affirmative action” and “diversity.” The language may be benign, but it functions as the basis for devising enforceable goals, quotas and timetables, with close official monitoring to ensure “progress.” Equality of outcome, not equality of opportunity, is the overriding goal. If an employer’s work force, for example, is only two percent black and the surrounding labor market area is 10 percent black, that employer may have to explain to a government agency why it has “only” one-fifth the number of black employees it should have. Employee traits such as perseverance, punctuality, intelligence and an ability to work with others don’t matter much in such a context.

    In the early 90′s, I often wondered what would have happened if Dave Dinkins, who so successfully ran NY City into the ground, became POTUS?

    Now I know. :-(

    I remember the black guy who called Rush before the 2008 election and said Obama was gonna do the thug thizzle on us white folks as a payback for slavery etc. The guy was prophetic, Barry’s about to do the thug thizzle on us and supposedly we can’t do a damned thing about it. I’ve got news for them, a lot of us white folks and others are not gonna play their game. They can shove this up Soro’s and Barry’s, Holder’s etc. evil asses. I am not responsible for the sins of my fathers in regards to slavery and my ancestors fought to free these ungrateful bastards. So up yours all you damned bastards who voted for Barry and cowards who didn’t vote and gave us 4 more yrs. of this tinhorn jerk’s rule. My trust is in God and not the damned govt.

    Plans of and taking out revenge have ways of backfiring and end up hurting people not meant to hurt.

    This is NOT a game, it is out right WAR on white people.

    George Soros IS the demonic puppet master behind the curtain.

    He despises black people AND Jews.

    He is setting the stage for a race war.

    Black folk will NOT survive this war and Soros knows this fact.

    (Black conservatives need to think about that NOW and prepare for the worst reactions from both sides.)

    Soros will profit from it off of Obama’s and his peoples blood.
