Government endorsed segregation in California
“Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!” A civil rights complaint has been filed by the organization Parents Defending Education against the Pajaro Valley Unified School District in Santa Cruz County, California, for offering a segregated teacher support program that specifically excluded some races from attending.
As the program’s leaflet to the right shows, the program for “people of color” would not only give only certain races beneficial training, it would also give those participants “a stipend” that was forbidden to some employees due to their race.
It also appears that the program is also discriminatory on who it hires, as the coaches shown on that flyer are all minorities. Apparently, whites (and especially white males) need not apply.
You can read the actual civil rights complaint here [pdf]. As it notes bluntly:
As the Department of Education is no doubt aware, segregation on the basis of race raises concerns that Santa Cruz County Office of Education and Pajaro Valley School District has received federal funds in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which declares that “no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
In addition, Section 1 of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution asserts that “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” On these grounds, the Supreme Court held in 1954 that racial segregation of students is unconstitutional. Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, 347 U.S. 483 (1954).
This isn’t rocket science, and in fact it has been well understood and accepted law for more than a half century, until 2020 when the panic over Wuhan flu combined with the riots demanding that only black lives matter suddenly abandoned the idea of treating all Americans equally regardless of their “race, color, or national origin.” Instead, some races or groups (part of the alphabet soup of LBGQTBIPOC etc) were now to always be favored, even though such favoritism was in express violation of the law.
Leftists however are always above the law. The law can only be applied to its opponents, not for reasons of justice but to give the left a political, financial, and cultural advantage at all times. Thus, the administrators in Santa Cruz County have decided that they will favor minorities that fall into its definition of “people of color,” both in training and pay. And it is pretty clear this favoritism doesn’t include Asians or whites.
