The Civil Rights Act of 1964: unilaterally repealed by
the universities in New York.
Blacklists are back and New York’s got ’em! Until Campus Reform revealed its bigoted discriminatory policy, a New York accounting program for high school students specifically excluded whites from applying.
The first link above includes a screen capture of the program’s original application requirements, which included five categories, (1) Hispanic or Latino, (2) Black or African American, (3) Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, (3) Asian, (4) Native American or Alaska Native, (5) Two or More Races.
Notice what’s missing? If you are simply white and thus do not fall into these categories, you must go to the back of the bus. For example, my kids (had I any) would be Jewish, white, and of European descent, and thus under these definitions would be forbidden to even apply to the program. And the only reason they would be rejected would be because of their race and ethnicity, a criteria that is a blatant violation of so many anti-discrimination laws passed since the 1960s it boggles the mind.
The program was being offered at numerous New York colleges, both privately and publicly funded.
Campus Reform first broke the story on May 30th. In writing up this post today, I took a look at the program’s website that outlined the requirements, and noticed that they have now added a sixth category:
White (Not Hispanic or Latino) – All persons having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa.
I guess the bad press — as well as the clear threat of legal action because the program was violating numerous anti-discrimination laws — forced them to add this category.
I suspect however that during the application process, the program’s managers will somehow always find ways to reject any candidates who apply under this new category. There is practically no way to track this process, so in truth they can continue to discriminate and blacklist whites, to their heart’s content. They have simply made it harder for everyone to see their bigotry. And if you don’t believe they are almost certainly doing this you are either willfully ignorant or are in favor of racial discrimination. Why should they bother with any of these categories any longer, if they include everyone and everyone can apply? The only reason I can fathom is to categorize the applicants by race, and then toss out the white applicants during the approval process.
American universities have been pushing this kind of racial bigotry now for decades. I’ve been writing about it for years. No one in power however has done anything about it, and the public has shrugged its shoulders, basically saying “Well, they aren’t coming after me, so why should I care?”.
Well, they are now coming for you. Welcome to the new leftist Utopia, where bigotry is endorsed and encouraged, as long as that discrimination is designed to specifically benefit the approved minorities. All else need not apply.
