BIDEN DIRECTIVE: REPLACE OLD SYSTEMIC RACISM WITH NEW SYSTEMIC RACISM

The man will say anything to get a vote...

B-r

It is ironic that President Biden, with a personal history of racial remarks and associations with racists, once again attempts to inject progressive communist democrat race warfare into the functioning of the U.S. Government.

Anti-racism, acknowledging and confronting the systemic and institutionalized aspects of racism that allegedly permeate society, overlooks the fact that those in charge of the system, primarily progressive communist democrats, are responsible for institutional racism and willing to allow the dark side of equity politics to destroy America from within.

Unconstitutionally racializing the government…

Executive Order on Further Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through The Federal Government

Sec. 5. Delivering Equitable Outcomes in Partnership with Underserved Communities. Underserved communities often face significant barriers and legacy exclusions in engaging with agencies and providing input on Federal policies and programs that affect them. Agencies must increase engagement with underserved communities by identifying and applying innovative approaches to improve the quality, frequency, and accessibility of engagement. Agencies shall, consistent with applicable law:

    (a)  conduct proactive engagement, as appropriate, with members of underserved communities — for example, through culturally and linguistically appropriate listening sessions, outreach events, or requests for information — during development and implementation of agencies’ respective annual Equity Action Plans, annual budget submissions, grants and funding opportunities, and other actions, including those outlined in section 3(d) of this order;

    (b)  collaborate with OMB, as appropriate, to identify and develop tools and methods for engagement with underserved communities, including those related to agency budget development and rulemaking;

    (c)  create more flexibilities, incentives, and guidelines for recipients of Federal funding and permits to proactively engage with underserved communities as projects are designed and implemented;

    (d)  identify funding opportunities for community- and faith-based organizations working in and with underserved communities to improve access to benefits and services for members of underserved communities; and 

    (e)  identify and address barriers for individuals with disabilities and older adults to participate in the engagement process, including barriers to the accessibility of physical spaces, virtual platforms, presentations, systems, training, and documents. <Source>

Common examples of government equity programs include:

  1. Affirmative Action: This policy aims to increase the representation of historically marginalized groups in areas such as employment, education, and government contracting. It involves setting goals and quotas for hiring or admitting underrepresented groups and implementing programs to increase diversity and inclusivity.

  2. Minority Business Development: Government agencies may offer assistance and resources to small businesses owned by members of underrepresented groups to help them start, grow, and succeed in their ventures.

  3. Housing and Urban Development Programs: These programs aim to provide affordable housing and support to families and individuals in low-income or underserved areas, as well as to promote fair housing practices and eliminate housing discrimination.

  4. Educational Equity Programs: Government entities may implement policies to address educational disparities among different groups by providing access to quality education and supporting academic success for marginalized and underrepresented students.

  5. Healthcare Equity Programs: These programs aim to reduce health disparities among different groups by increasing access to healthcare services and promoting healthy behaviors and lifestyles.

Overall, government equity programs aim to promote equality of outcomes rather than equality of opportunities given your physical, mental, educational, and financial abilities.

Negative consequences when promoting equity over merit…

Promoting equity over merit can sometimes have negative consequences, particularly if the pursuit of equity comes at the expense of other essential factors such as individual qualifications, skills, and experience. Here are some potential negative consequences of prioritizing equity over merit:

  1. Reduced Quality: When organizations prioritize equity over merit, it can result in hiring or promoting individuals who may not have the same level of qualifications, skills, or experience as others who are passed over. This can lead to a reduction in the overall quality of work or output.

  2. Lowered Morale: If employees feel that equity considerations are prioritized over merit, it can create a sense of unfairness and undermine morale among those who think that their hard work and accomplishments are not being recognized.

  3. Divisiveness: Prioritizing equity over merit can sometimes create divisions and tensions between individuals or groups, particularly if some feel they are being mistreated.

  4. Reverse Discrimination: If equity considerations become the sole focus of hiring or promotion decisions, it can result in reverse discrimination against individuals who are not members of underrepresented or disadvantaged groups.

  5. Lack of Diversity: Prioritizing equity over merit can sometimes result in a lack of diversity, particularly if individuals selected based on equity considerations do not bring a range of perspectives or skills to the organization.

  6. Inefficiency: Prioritizing equity over merit can sometimes result in organizations hiring or promoting individuals who may not be the best fit for a particular position or project. This can result in inefficiency and wasted resources.

More specifically…

  1. Backlash: Equity initiatives can sometimes generate opposition from individuals or groups who perceive them as reverse discrimination or preferential treatment.

  2. Stigmatization: Some individuals who benefit from equity initiatives may feel stigmatized or singled out as being different from their peers.

  3. Resentment: Equity initiatives can sometimes create resentment among individuals who do not receive the same level of support or attention.

  4. Tokenism: Sometimes, equity initiatives can be seen as superficial or tokenistic, where the goal is to appear inclusive without addressing deeper systemic discrimination issues.

  5. Reduced standards: In some cases, equity initiatives may result in lower standards or expectations for specific individuals or groups, which can be detrimental to their long-term success.

  6. Unintended consequences: Equity initiatives can sometimes have unintended consequences, such as perpetuating stereotypes or reinforcing existing power imbalances.

  7. Resource allocation: Providing resources for equity initiatives can strain limited resources and may divert attention and funding away from other important initiatives.

  8. Perceived unfairness: Some individuals may perceive equity initiatives as unfair or unjust, especially if they believe their opportunities are limited or curtailed.

  9. Disruption: Equity initiatives can sometimes create disruptions or conflicts within organizations or communities, especially if they challenge existing power structures or norms.

  10. Overreliance on identity: Sometimes, equity initiatives can overemphasize identity-based characteristics such as race, gender, or ethnicity, which can limit the focus on other essential factors such as individual merit or qualifications.

Bottom line…

It should be no surprise that Biden issued this executive order during the middle of Black History month as he panders to a shrinking black voting bloc. No amount of revisionist history can disguise the fact that it is the Democrat Party that is the Party of racism, slavery, secession, segregation, and anti-civil rights laws.

Affirmative action, with all its racist consequences, is alive and well in local, state, and federal governments.

Regardless of the Orwellian Newspeak about “equity,” the truth is that racism in the name of anti-racism is still racism.

We are so screwed.
