Obama unleashes ‘Preferences’ juggernaut


More Obama phones on the way. Many more. Now this “Equal Outcomes” thing should make the lawyers happy. Watch them step up and make out of court settlements because it is just too expensive to fight. Maybe one or two might make it to the Supreme Court… in a few years. A new housing bubble now on its way. As an aside, just to remind folks, that Obamacare is filled with this preference thing. Jews, Indians and Asians need not apply.

Here is a memory first:

Obamacare quotas- cut Jews and Asian Doctors-

The word “underrepresented” is inserted into the bill’s language to make it clear the preferences are aimed at giving a leg up to black and Hispanic students. According to the soft bigotry of the left, “underrepresented” is always meant to be read as “black” and “Latino.”

Page 879: “Give preferences to entities that have a demonstrated record of … training individuals who are from underrepresented minority groups or disadvantaged backgrounds.”

“Racial preferences in the Senate Health Care Bill, in addition to being unconstitutional, will not improve health care outcomes for minority patients.” Examining the terms of the race provisions, they said they find them “constitutionally suspect and ill-defined.”

Now the headline of the day: Obama To Unleash Racial-Preferences Juggernaut

If your organization has a policy or practice that doesn’t benefit minorities equally, watch out: The Obama administration could sue you for racial discrimination under a dubious legal theory that many argue is unconstitutional.

President Obama intends to close “persistent gaps” between whites and minorities in everything from credit scores and homeownership to test scores and graduation

His remedy — short of new affirmative-action legislation — is to sue financial companies, schools and employers based on “disparate impact” complaints — a stealthy way to achieve racial preferences, opposed 2 to 1 by Americans.

Under this broad interpretation of civil-rights law, virtually any organization can be held liable for race bias if it maintains a policy that negatively impacts one racial group more than another — even if it has no racist motive and applies the policy evenly across all groups.

Equal Outcomes:

This means that even race-neutral rules for mortgage underwriting and consumer credit scoring potentially can be deemed racist if prosecutors can produce statistics showing they tend to result in adverse outcomes for blacks or Latinos.

Also, the administration sent a chill through the financial industry earlier this year when it announced its new credit watchdog agency will join Justice, as well as HUD, in using the disparate-impact doctrine to enforce civil-rights laws.

Already, Attorney General Eric Holder has used the club of disparate-impact lawsuits to beat almost $500 million in loan set-asides and other claims out of the nation’s largest banks.

In addition to the financial settlements — which include millions in funding for affordable-housing activists — Bank of America, Wells Fargo and SunTrust have all agreed to adopt more minority-friendly lending policies.

    When my generation is gone (died off) there will be no balance to the idiocy of the political scene. We can remember history – all f the lies can be unveiled as long as someone is alive that can document why it is a lie. We have seen the best of this country. We did out best.

        Have you found Glenn Beck on TV? We are too far out to have cable and discovered Glenn. While he gets off course sometimes, he does have a good inside source for what is going on in government.

    Why am I not surprised?

    Post-racial America? I think not!

    Obama is going to exact revenge for colonialism. Batten down your hatches — especially if you’re white!

    I was thinking earlier today about writing on this same topic, but didn’t quite feel I could pull it off that well. You did it much better than I could have. The fact that for all the “fairness” and “level playing field” talk, all Obama does is completely special interests and levels out nothing. Affirmative Action has been a huge contributor to the downfall of this nation and, really, the black population as Walter E. Williams and Thomas Sowell both have written. There is nothing “level,” “fair,” or “just” about what is going on here. It has become a cleptocracy now, not a meritocracy. But that is the Chicago Way…so winners and losers here we come. As we know, Social Justice is a whole lot different from Equal Justice. As you are alluding to the fraud that took place for this election also….you betch yer sweet ballot there was lots of it. We are not likely to know the truth of that, just like we’re not likely to know what happened with the Benghazi debacle. Ugly, eh? The Coreleones (sp) couldn’t do it any better.

    Hang in there, Bunker!

      Thanks Cheryl. Nice comment. Well, sex raised its ugly head with Benghazi, so looks like the “low information” folks may gain some interest. Sex tells the story. It even might make a movie. Lots of luck with that one.

    Ah, yes. We are all going to be equal now. We will all be reduced to the lowest common denominator because “Elections have have consequences. And, Eric (Cantor), I won!”

    Barack “Jeremiah Wright” Obama is going to get his revenge now!
