Democrat media are horrified at Trump’s plan to end federal racial discrimination

Sixty years after the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Democrats have turned that law on its head, co-opting it as a license for reverse racial discrimination in the name of “equity.” And Democrat media are horrified at the news that former President Donald Trump plans to redirect the federal government to apply the law according to its initial, colorblind letter, should he win the White House.

Trump plans to reverse the government’s current interpretation of the Civil Rights Act that has permitted federal agencies to discriminate against white people, Axios reported.

“As President Trump has said, all staff, offices, and initiatives connected to Biden’s un-American policy will be immediately terminated,” Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung told Axios.

“President Trump is committed to weeding out discriminatory programs and racist ideology across the federal government,” Cheung said, according to Axios. Cheung did not respond to The Federalist’s request for comment by publication time.

Instead of looking at how deserving an individual and his specific set of circumstances may be, these programs prejudge a person’s eligibility based on skin color.

The Supreme Court found this type of discrimination unconstitutional last June when it ruled 6-3 that affirmative action policies violate the 14th Amendment. Students for Fair Admissions filed suit against Harvard and the University of North Carolina, alleging their race-based admissions policies violated the Civil Rights Act and the equal protection clause.

“Many universities have for too long wrongly concluded that the touchstone of an individual’s identity is not challenges bested, skills built, or lessons learned, but the color of their skin,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote for the majority. “This Nation’s constitutional history does not tolerate that choice.”

That type of choosing based on race is how the Supreme Court ended up with Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson and how Kamala Harris ended up one 81-year-old heartbeat away from the presidency.
