Trump administration considers rollback of anti-discrimination rules

No body ever try to tell me again that Republicans are not racist or what supremacists.  Yes this has been a goal of the leaders, but if you still support this party, this president, their goals, you honestly are a racist white supremacist.  Own it.   People wake up.  This is so like Germany in the 1930’s.   They did not start out with ovens.  It started with demonizing a segment of the population.   Making laws to favor a majority white national class.  Remember women were regulated to basically breeding stock for Aryan males.  They were basically forced to have babies from different men.   They had no control over their bodies or sexual organs.  We are dangerously close to that time in this country.   One party in Germany got into power and change the rules to gain and keep power regardless of what the majority of the population wanted.   Sound like any party in our country today.   Wake up, get angry, fight back now before it is too late to fight at all.   Hugs

The Trump administration is considering a far-reaching rollback of civil rights law that would dilute federal rules against discrimination in education, housing and other aspects of American life, people familiar with the discussions said.

A recent internal Justice Department memo directed senior civil rights officials to examine how decades-old “disparate impact” regulations might be changed or removed in their areas of expertise, and what the impact might be, according to people familiar with the matter. Similar action is being considered at the Education Department and is underway at the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Under the concept of disparate impact, actions can amount to discrimination if they have an uneven effect even if that was not the intent, and rolling back this approach has been a longtime goal of conservative legal thinkers. Past Republican administrations have done little to erode the concept’s application, partly out of concerns that the Supreme Court might disagree, or that such changes would be unpopular and viewed as racist.

The Trump administration signaled its hostility to this approach in a report issued last week by the Federal Commission on School Safety, which recommended rescinding the school discipline guidance. In a sharply worded and controversial chapter, the report said the validity of disparate impact analysis “cannot be squared with the Supreme Court’s holdings.” The administration revoked the guidance a few days later.

    • Ya, I noticed that. They admit what they are doing is blatantly racist, designed to harm color people. The want to be able to discriminate. Yet they love it and have no shame. Hugs
