Obama to Dumb-Down America… Punish Employers With Aggressive Race Quotas

Obama Brings the Pain…
President Obama will punish American businesses by suing companies that do not promote minorities at sufficient levels.

Obama has a long history of punishing producers in his quest for minority justice.

State Sen. Barack Obama and his radical mentor and friend Fr. Michael Pfleger led a protest against the payday loan industry demanding the State of Illinois to regulate loan businesses back in January 2000. (NBC 5 Week of January 3, 2000)

In his next term Obama is going back to his roots as a community organizer.
Investors reported, via FOX Nation:

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 rates.

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.

It’s Obamanomics in practice.

    How very 1970’s of him! Obama really has set race relations in the US back 40 years or more. Whatever happen to “judged on the content of their character rather than the color of their skin”?

    Easy solution here. Follow the Eliz Warren model. If you think you’re a Cherokee Indian, then you are.

    So make sure your employees channel ML King – I think I’m not only black but I’m MLK himself – and presto all quotas filled.

    UMM so next thing is to make sure half the football and basketball teams is white…wait there needs to be some Hispanic, Asians, Irishmen…wait there needs to some women. If you are going to create quotas you need to include every possibility otherwise you are racist or sexist. Next we need quotas for NAACP and White Supremist; the Chinese Restaurant should have a Mexican cook…

    Sounds like this could be another Affordable Housing Act—but instead of forcing banks to loan to minorities …. Hope the results aren’t as devastating!

  • Don’t expect SCOTUS to come to the rescue. Obama will pack it so NOTHING the Left does is unconstitutional for the next two generations.

    Thanks all you “offended” Missouri slugs who sent Claire McCaskill back to confirm Obama’s judicial appointments…and the horse you Indiana “Who’s Yours?” A-holes rode in on, too.

    That’s EXACTLY what it is… this is further in the article: “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. … Though the administration seeks equal credit outcomes, regardless of risk, across the entire banking industry, it doesn’t have to sue every bank to achieve its goal. As a prophylactic against similar prosecution, IBD has learned the American Bankers Association recently advised its 5,000 members to give rejected minority loan applicants a “second look,” which it says “can result in suggested changes in underwriting standards.”
    _____

    What I don’t get is, if certain banking and business practices are ‘color blind’ or neutral and show no obvious preference to anybody, then how can the Justice Department say they are racist because the OUTCOME is different for whites than for blacks? This is the same argument as to why there are more blacks in prison than whites… it’s because blacks commit more crimes. Same reason as to why banks lend more to whites than blacks… it’s because blacks don’t want to work, they don’t want to educate themselves, so they don’t make as much money and aren’t as likely to pay back a loan. It just IS what it IS. You can’t guarantee an OUTCOME, you can only guarantee that the rules are the same for everyone, and then let the chips fall where they may. What Obama is trying to do is guarantee an outcome, and he’s going to do it by giving very unfair advantages to blacks. Yeah, THAT’S really gonna help improve already awful race relations, eh?

    ” if it maintains a policy that negatively impacts one racial group more than another ”

    What company would have any kind of policy in writing that would be race based? Isn’t that what this is about? What kind of “policy” would effect one race and not another?

    Not sure of the policy of Obama or the way it is being reported here.

  • ★FALCON★

    I’m all for rounding up 10 trillion dollars, dividing it amongst those that are willing to return to their ancestral homelands.

    Racist, doubtful.

  • JenBee

    Sam Stone, one of the examples they used was the way credit scores are kept. Supposedly, even though it’s a race-neutral policy, the same for everyone, it negatively impacts blacks more often than whites, because blacks generally have lower credit scores. Now the reasons for this are obvious – you don’t pay your bills on time, your credit score suffers. But like I posted above, Obama only cares about OUTCOMES, and he’s going to skew the playing field and have a different set of rules for minorities than for whites to assure the outcome is the same.

  • do you think obama will sue non-white employers for not hiring the correct number of whites? there is where the real racial discrimination in employment is in america.

    what obama and the democratic party are doing is the real reason blacks and hispanics support the democratic party. their support has always been based on the democratic party’s policy of selectively oppressing white people. to all you white that thought is all okay when it was happening to other white people, well now its your turn.

    I don’t think O and crew give a flying fig if any of this is legal of lawful or constitutional, they just want to stir up more hatred between the have and the have nots or the makers and the takers. And whatever they declare will be the law of the land.
    Remember when some were saying that O would declare Marshal law? Well my big brother was predicting that before this past election and I argued with him that O did not need to do that. However I am beginning to wonder if O may not try to do a Chavez or a Castro when his second term is up.

  • This is just all so ridiculous to me. I like variety, I like CULTURE. If I want to go eat at a Chinese, Mexican, Indian, Polish, Italian, etc… restaurant, I want it to be authentic. If I go shopping at a specific place that carries specific items, I want them to be authentic. If I want run of the mill, grey area crap, I’ll go to the knock off place or the local diner or fast food joint. I am a person who does not have much money, so if I choose to spend my money on something ‘extra special’, I don’t want mush. Am I making sense? Why can’t we celebrate individuality, history and ancestor heritage??

    It just keeps getting gooder and gooder. All those lily white yutes who voted for Barry have another barricade to climb over just securing any type of employment much less hanging on to any job they may have now. But that’s okay because they can always go on the dole as there are so many ga-billionaires out there just chomping at the bit to pay more in taxes so the 50% or more of the dependent class can collect welfare benefits. Or are they?

    American Capitalism Gone With A Whimper
    It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent into Marxism is happening with breathtaking speed, against the backdrop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

    True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

    Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.
    […………………………………]

    The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Weimar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

    These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, losses, and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?

    These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties, and powers of the American congress (parliament). Again, congress has put up little more than a whimper to their masters.

    Then came Barack Obama’s command that GM’s (General Motors) president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of “pure” free markets, the American president now has the power, the self-given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions.

    So it should be no surprise that the American president has followed this up with a “bold” move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantee of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too. Prime Minister Putin, less then two months ago, warned Obama and UK’s Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing, as foolish, drunken Russians, and so let our “wise” Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride.

    Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper…but a “free man” whimper.

    Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper…but a “free man” whimper.

    So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democratically controlled Congress of America is working on passing a new regulation that would give the American Treasury department the power to set “fair” maximum salaries, evaluate performance, and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Frank, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive.

    The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left.

    The proud American will go down into his slavery without a fight, beating his chest, and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

    Upside Down Flag Protests Over Election Sparking Controversy

    It is becoming a growing form of protest over the outcome of the Presidential Election; people flying the American Flag upside down. But now those protests are sparking a protest of their own.

    On rooftops or front porches, our flag is displayed as a symbol of our national pride.

    Larry Guerrieri fought beneath the flag in Vietnam, but outside his Dorseyville home Thursday it was flying upside down.

    “That’s a sign of distress; this country is in distress right now,” said Guerrieri.

    Guerrieri makes no effort to hide his feelings about President Barack Obama.

    “This Benghazi incident, he left them four people there to die,” says Guerrieri. “That’s the way I feel about it.”

    So, his flag flies protest.

    Flag Plaza is where the National Flag Foundation is housed.

    “The flag is flown upside down in times of distress,” said Clark Rogers, the acting director of the National Flag Foundation.

    Rogers says to fly it in protest risks angering veterans.

    “No question about that, veterans are very tender about that flag,” he says. “They fought for that flag; their buddies sacrificed for the flag.”

    But Guerrieri and Bill Rodgers, who put his upside down flag back in his yard Thursday in Bellevue, feel strongly that the country is in trouble and the President is only making it worse.

    “It will stay there for four years,” says Guerrieri.

    “A couple of days, probably till we get to the weekend,” added Rodgers.

    Whether you agree with the sentiment or not it is protected as free speech by the Constitution. And apparently, this is nothing new. People have been flying flags upside down after elections for years.

    First half of this MUST READ IS HERE: http://directorblue.blogspot.com/2012/11/must-read-we-have-lost.html

    MUST READ: We Have Lost

    As a country we are hopelessly divided by a malignant polarization approaching that which divided us prior to the Civil War. Our side will not march in the streets, but the rebellion, protests and resistance will be just as determined — though more subtle. The American can-do spirit, our optimism, our traditional dependence on our own ingenuity is now mere kindling on the advancing flame of an insidious yet steadily advancing socialism.

    Those of us who create real jobs, invest our capital, our fortunes and take the risks to build America, feel betrayed. The fundamentals of honest effort and hard work rendering the rewards associated with capitalism seem now like a cruel joke. We are now a targeted enemy not to be governed but coerced into submission by a lazy, corrupt, vindictive, arrogant government that is out for revenge, redistribution — and to add a final insult — one we believe is too morally bankrupt to lead.

    The usual safeguards for a democracy found in a vibrant, independent press have lost any semblance of objectivity and instead have joined a side. What used to be principled, independent reporters have morphed into dishonest pundits spewing a disgustingly relentless partisan bile that neither informs nor educates. They are shallowly manipulated by the political marketers to the point that their words lack meaning. The “fourth branch” of government has become nothing more than an empty cathode ray irradiating a mind-numbed audience like a repetitive Beavis and Butthead rerun.

    We have elected a President who not only feels we did not work for what we have, but feels we do not deserve it either. Had it gone the other way, Obama supporters would have torched America. Instead they will now legitimately consume it by gnawing at the soft underbelly of what was once her prosperity. Our Judeo-Christian culture — that those on the left revile and call “extreme” — now has as much relevance as a three-minute YouTube video.

    Fighting for God and Country has now a new meaning, they will fight for Obama-Bucks, work the system, because this President gave them the right to do so.

    C.W.

    P.S. For starters, my next car(s) will be built, at a non-union plant, located in Lincoln, Alabama.

    I worked as a CPA in Chicago for over 30 years. In a firm with hundreds of CPAs we had almost no blacks. We might get on or two who would work for a couple of years to have the Public Accounting Firn credential on their resume but none of them really wanted the long hours it takes to make it to the top of the profession. It was easier to get a job with the city, county, state or federal government. With all the turnover at CPA firms I must have meet over a thousand accountants. Six of them were black. Many more were Hispanic and there were a huge number of Asian immigrants. Accounting has always attracted upwardly mobile immigrants. It’s only a five year degree and it tends to be counter recessionary

    The place I retired from, had one black man working there before I hired in, they told me he quit.

    After I hired in, we were going through a coal boom, and I needed help to process orders…a black woman came in and I told the boss to hire her….he did.

    This was a time period that the company took application at the front desk, not through an employment agency……

    Not one black ever came in to apply for work, after this woman came in…never! I always wondered why.

    So what happens to companies that have no blacks coming in for a job? They still going to be attacked by this government?
