Biden’s Push for Equity in Government Hits Legal and Political Roadblocks

No part of President Biden’s agenda has been as ambitious as his attempt to place concerns about equity squarely at the center of the federal government’s decision-making.

By Michael D. Shear, Stacy Cowley and Alan Rappeport
June 26, 2021

WASHINGTON — Since taking office 157 days ago, President Biden has promised to put racial equity at the center of everything he does, pledging in an executive order on Day 1 to take a “systematic approach to embedding fairness in decision-making” as he drafts legislation, hires staff, proposes spending and develops regulations.

But his efforts — which could radically realign the distribution of federal money and benefits in favor of people of color and other underserved communities — are running into legal and political obstacles.

In late May, Syovata Edari, the owner of CocoVaa Chocolatier in Madison, Wis., was told she would receive $50,000 from Mr. Biden’s government, courtesy of the president’s efforts to ensure that pandemic relief aid for struggling restaurants and food businesses would be distributed equitably.

I.e., “equitably” meaning Blacks First.

But three weeks later, she instead received an email that broke the bad news: The award had been rescinded thanks to a lawsuit filed on behalf of white restaurant owners that successfully challenged the program’s policy of prioritizing applications from women and people of color. The check she was counting on would not arrive.

“It doesn’t surprise me that once again these laws that we fought and died for, that were intended to benefit us — to even the playing field a bit more — are being used against us,” Ms. Edari, who is Black, said, referring to the Constitution’s equal protection clause.

I mean, sure, the 14th Amendment sounds like the part about “the equal protection of the laws” applies to everybody, but we all know that it’s good for the government to discriminate against whites.

… No part of Mr. Biden’s agenda has been as ambitious as his attempt to embrace racial considerations when making decisions. It pushes against limits set by the Supreme Court, which say programs based on race must be “narrowly tailored” to accomplish a “compelling governmental interest.” And it ignites passions at a time when Democrats hold the narrowest majority in Congress and the country is already seething with disagreements about race, power and fairness.

On Wednesday, a federal judge in Florida echoed a court ruling in Wisconsin by ordering a halt to an Agriculture Department program to forgive the debts of Black and other minority farmers after years of discrimination. The judge wrote that Congress must “heed its obligation to do away with governmentally imposed discrimination based on race.”

The small-business program that prioritized people like Ms. Edari was forced to change its rules last month after challenges by white Americans who say the policy is racist. And around the country, Republicans are promising to tie the president’s equity efforts to a broader culture war during the 2022 midterm elections, arguing that Mr. Biden is doing the bidding of liberal activists who believe that all white people are racist.

On Capitol Hill, the $1.9 trillion relief package Mr. Biden pushed through in March, known as the American Rescue Plan, included money for health care, child care and poverty programs that disproportionately benefit minority groups, underserved communities and women.

The president’s initial proposal for vast spending on infrastructure would have gone even further, reversing racial disparities in how the government builds, repairs and locates a wide range of physical projects, including a $20 billion plan to “reconnect” communities of color to economic opportunity. But an emerging bipartisan deal on infrastructure does not include $400 billion for home health aides, a program that benefits many women of color. And it is uncertain whether it will embrace some of Mr. Biden’s other race-conscious proposals.

The challenges to Mr. Biden’s proposals have so far halted only a small fraction of his broader equity agenda, which has already ensured that billions of dollars in government spending have reached African Americans and poor women. Some of the president’s programs, like the child tax credit, are less vulnerable to legal challenges because they are technically race-neutral even as they disproportionately benefit people of color.

OK, they just said some of Biden’s plans only commit disparate impact racial discrimination, while others are overtly discriminatory against whites.

I know that these days we are supposed to obsess over pronouns like he, she, and they, but in 2021 the only pronouns that really matter are who and whom.

Administration officials say the court rulings and political opposition are merely speed bumps that will do little to block progress. And they say Mr. Biden will continue to fight for parts of his legislative agenda that are not in a compromise bill.

… But the resistance to Mr. Biden’s pledge to make equity “the business of the whole of government” is an early warning sign of more to come.

The fight over how much the government and other institutions can consider race when making decisions has intensified in recent years, with conservative activists making a concerted legal push for rulings by a more right-leaning Supreme Court in areas as varied as university admissions, government contracting and voting rights.

If white people trying in the courts to get the White House to stop discriminating against them isn’t White Supremacy, I don’t know what is.

Now, the president’s critics, including Republican lawmakers and conservative activists, are lining up other court challenges and are vowing to push back against what they say is blatant discrimination by the government against its citizens.

… Conservative lawyers are still combing through the relief legislation for other provisions that could be ripe for lawsuits because they tie economic aid to race, according to Rick M. Esenberg, the president and general counsel of the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty, which is representing about a dozen white farmers who filed the lawsuit.

Mr. Esenberg said he did not expect the farmers’ program to move forward as is because it violated the right to equal protection under the law.

“It’s very difficult to construct an argument that this program could possibly be constitutional,” he said.

… Treasury Secretary Janet L. Yellen assigned her deputy secretary, Wally Adeyemo, to develop a civil rights strategy for the department this year.

After all, Wally Adeyemo must know all about the horrors of American slavery and Jim Crow because he’s clearly descended from a long line of African-Americans.

… The Justice Department argued in a court filing that the government “has a compelling interest in remedying the effects of past and present discrimination.”

But a federal judge in Texas and a three-judge panel from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit objected and said the relief program’s approach was too blunt and ran afoul of the Constitution’s equal protection guarantee.

In response to the court rulings, the Small Business Administration, which runs the relief program, abandoned its prioritization plan in late May. By then, most of the money had already been distributed: Around 72,000 women- and minority-led businesses received $18 billion, more than 60 percent of the relief fund’s money, before the court injunctions took effect.

John W. Boyd Jr., the president of the nonprofit National Black Farmers Association, said officials dragged their feet getting the money out the door, he said, allowing time for lawsuits to be filed.

If only the Biden Administration had been faster at trampling on the Constitution, I’d have gotten that money and spent it all long before the courts could rule.

    Is it overtly racist (or ethnicist?) to speculate whether our Nigerian friend, Mr. Adeyemo, will instead endeavor to find a civil rights strategy to divert federal funds to black farmers in Nigeria (i.e., his fellow Yoruba farmers)? I understand that Nigerians have quite the skill for bamboozling and swindling trusting white liberals, and this seems like the perfect opportunity for an international con-game.

  13. The principle of being able to racially raid tax coffers is a great opportunity for white cohesion. What better way to promote the Sailer Strategy than being able to promise loans / checks / handouts from the Federal coffers to poor, working, and middle class Whites? If the blacks can do it so can Whitey! Then politics can boil down to two parties, one giving freebies to Whitey, the other giving handouts to the brothaz. Right now we have the opposite, two parties giving free handouts to Wall Street and Big Capital, which translates into rich Whites and Jews getting disproportionate amounts of handouts, either directly (too big to fail) or via Israel.

    We have to realize the US is hopeless, it’s a dead state walking, and vital Whites need to be planning for their future communities which will arise as the entire apparatus collapses. That means starting already to drain the coffers towards Whites. Also attriting the US military now is important as we wouldn’t want all that firepower to fall into the wrong hands… And while I presume Biden is playing a Washington Senators game here of losing on purpose, I think working and middle class Whites should rally towards the idea of racial handouts and then demand a GOP that delivers gimmedats for Whitey.

    How does spreading junk food “impact” disparate health outcomes, for which we’re spending untold billions already? Does that go on the reparations tab?

    Why is it so hard to use simple, objective like income to make sure that government assistance goes to the people who need it, whatever their gender and racial and ethnic background? I would assume the courts would not object to that.

    More on What We Owe to Whom:

    The Democrats running Oregon are losing their minds about equity. They are claiming past treatment of people of color means they have to provide Medicaid to illegal immigrants. The fact that they are talking about people who aren’t supposed to be here clearly means nothing:

    “When opportunities in our state are withheld from a specific class of people, we perpetuate systems of inequity,” the lawmakers argued in The Oregonian. “As legislators of color, we believe it is important to challenge the injustices that have been in our nation and state since their founding.”

    Oregon’s governor is even more emphatic that we must treat illegal immigrants as ourselves because they are people of color:

    “All Oregonians must have quality, affordable health care, regardless of who they are or where they live,” Brown said in March. “During my time as Governor, we’ve made great strides in expanding access. Currently, 94 percent of Oregonians and 100 percent of children have access to health care. The pandemic has taught us this is not good enough. And unfortunately, our communities of color have paid the price. Gaps in coverage persist, and these gaps are disproportionately borne by communities of color.”

    What will they do when everybody runs up there for free medical coverage?

    How much does $400 billion work out to, per home health aide?

    The math is insane: There were ~3.4M home and health aides in 2019 (https://www.bls.gov/ooh/healthcare/home-health-aides-and-personal-care-aides.htm). Let’s call it for simplicity 4M now. That’s $100K per capita for a job that requires no education and a joke training/certification. Triple of their medium earnings right now, ~$30K.

    And because the standards and overseeing are minimal, the amount of abuse elderly get from the aides is actually staggering. But nobody wants to talk about it – why bother, if it benefits many women of color. Increasingly black men are into this line of work, too.

I realize that blacks like having clever mulattoes on their team for now but at some point when they take over they are going to reconsider this and only count “real” blacks as blacks so as not to have to split up the gibmedats with the fake Negroes. Or maybe if you are only 10% black you should only get 10% reparations and your white 90% has to PAY reoperations. If you are 50/50 then it is a wash.

    Let me introduce to the the Cloward-Piven strategy:

    ” . . . Cloward and Piven proposed to create a crisis in the current welfare system – by exploiting the gap between welfare law and practice – that would ultimately bring about its collapse and replace it with a system of guaranteed annual income. They hoped to accomplish this end by informing the poor of their rights to welfare assistance, encouraging them to apply for benefits and, in effect, overloading an already overburdened bureaucracy.”

    The goal of the Globalist elites is to invite the entire world of maggots to come feast on the carcass of Western Civilization, knowing the White goyim will keep working at their jobs to pay taxes while their countries are stolen from them.

    “Globalization” = Capitalism = Han Supremacy. From the Communist Manifesto:

    The bourgeoisie, by the rapid improvement of all instruments of production, by the immensely facilitated means of communication, draws all, even the most barbarian, nations into civilization. The cheap prices of its commodities are the heavy artillery with which it batters down all Chinese walls, with which it forces the barbarians’ intensely obstinate hatred of foreigners to capitulate. It compels all nations, on pain of extinction, to adopt the bourgeois mode of production; it compels them to introduce what it calls civilization into their midst, i.e., to become bourgeois themselves. In one word, it creates a world after its own image.

    The capitalist destruction that Karl Marx cheered in 1848, only in mirror image, is what led to the rise of Trumpism and its protective walls. Back in the early days of capitalist global destruction–fueled by the Industrial Revolution and its labor-saving machines–it was cheap English goods that were destroying Chinese jobs. According to Fredrich Engels, “(China) bought the cheaper commodities of the English and allowed their own manufacturing workers to be ruined.” He added “we have come to the point where a new machine invented in England deprives millions of Chinese workers of their livelihood within a year’s time.”

    To help ease the pain of all those lost Chinese jobs, the 19th century capitalists were kind enough to include massive shipments of opium with all the cheap jagged commodities that shred the fine economic fabric of Chinese life. Today in the ruined landscape of rusting US factories; human suffering is softened by an opioid crisis manufactured by 21st capitalist pharmaceutical giants. Attempts by US workers to build protectionist walls–to stop the onslaught of cheap foreign goods result in cries of racism—echoes of Marx–only this time it is the “deplorables” with their intensely obstinate hatred of foreigners.

    In response to the devastation wrought by capitalism in China, the messianic Taiping Rebellion arose where a charismatic figure challenged the ruling but faltering Chinese establishment. Although they should not be exaggerated, there are striking similarities to the on the one hand QAnon and BlueAnon movements in the US and the Messianic chaos which have recently arose in the US. One of the more salient features of messianic times is strong good-evil polarity. Relative to the oppositional fence, leaders and teams are either idealized as the Messiah or devalued as the Anti-Christ. The Taiping Rebellion led to 30-50 million deaths. The US still has time to pull back. If there is any doubt of Marx’s approving tone in the CM, a few years later he unambiguously gave 100% approval to capitalism crushing those Chinese workers:

    Complete isolation was the prime condition of the preservation of Old China. That isolation having come to a violent end by the medium of England, dissolution must follow as surely as that of any mummy carefully preserved in a hermetically sealed coffin, whenever it is brought into contact with the open air.

    Marx’s approval of capitalist creative worker destruction was echoed nearly a 170 years later by arch-capitalist columnist Kevin Williamson, when projecting a death wish upon US working class towns:

    The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets.

    And so yes, the tide has turned. Capitalism used to be British and then American Supremacy — but from Reagan through Bush II, our leaders undermined labor in the US and eventually shipped global supremacy to China. So today, globalization, which is capitalism, is Han Supremacy.

The ad was racist because it claimed, “without citing evidence”, that the quotas Helms’s Democrat opponent supported would take jobs from more qualified whites.

    @Achmed E. Newman

    We just went thru this game with Covid. The general principle is that justice is always supposed to wear a blindfold, but in case of ” temporary emergency” she’s allowed to peak a little bit.

    For example, let’s say that the courthouse is on fire. It’s awkward enough to have to evacuate while carrying that heavy scale – you wouldn’t want her to be stumbling around blindfolded while the alarm bells are going off and the hallways are starting to fill with smoke. So, for as long as the fire lasts, she’s allowed to peak a little bit and maybe intern everyone with slanty eyes in a concentration camp just in case they are the arsonists. Just till the fire is out.

    So far so good, but then this is when the lawyers come in. What is the meaning of “emergency” and how long is “temporary”? The Constitution says that patents and copyrights should be for a “limited time” but how long is a limited time? The Motion Picture Association says that a limited time is until the end of the earth, minus one day. So every time the copyright on Mickey is about to run out, Congress increase the length of copyright.

    For example, in NYC, there was a “temporary emergency” housing shortage during WWII which legally justified the City to interfere with the free market and set the price of housing according to political rather than economic considerations (just like this year there was a “temporary emergency” which authorized the CDC to halt evictions – everyone knows that the mandate of the CDC extends to landlord-tenant matters, right?). However, the “temporary emergency” in NY has now been going on for 75 years with no end in sight (basic economic theory tells you that when you cap the price of a good, demand will always exceed supply so the regulations themselves will insure that the “housing shortage” in NY will last forever.) The # of tenant-voters is much greater than the # of landlord-voters so it’s politically impossible to get rid of it and the courts have supported the concept that they must “defer to the legislature” – if the legislature says that the “temporary emergency” isn’t over, who are they to second guess this?

    Poor Justice O’Connor was wrong – she thought that the racism of America was redeemable and that 25 years would be enough time to redeem it if we struggled really hard to do so. But no, whitey is irredeemably racist, like Derek Chauvin, so 25 years ain’t nearly enough in both cases. Maybe if we and Derek struggle really really hard against racism during the NEXT 25 years, we will succeed in mission of bringing full equality to blacks by the end of that sentence, but I doubt it. I hereby sentence America to another 25 years of Affirmative Action, with the understanding that the sentence may be extended for lack of good behavior by whitey.

    The level of ignorance about relevant American history continues to astound me.
    The southern States were counted upon to ratify the Thirteenth Amendment
    banning slavery and involuntary servitude. But, when Congress proposed the
    so-called “Fourteenth amendment”, almost all southern State Legislatures
    REJECTED that proposed amendment. Congress went mad and ordered
    the President to direct the Union Army to re-invade those same States.
    The one State that ACCEPTED that proposed amendment was spared
    that second military invasion. Southern Legislatures were compelled,
    at the point of bayonets, to change their NO votes to YES votes.
    Then, when northern State Legislatures learned of this abject extortion,
    they changed their YES votes to NO votes. The Secretary of State
    only counted YES votes: if northern States had initially voted YES
    then changed their votes to NO, SOS counted them as YES votes.
    When southern States initially voted NO and were compelled
    at gun point to change their votes to YES, SOS counted them as YES votes.
    Had enough yet? There’s more: EVEN COUNTING IN THIS BIASED
    AND FRAUDULENT MANNER, the SOS only reached 27 “YES” votes.
    Only problem was that the SOS earlier had declared that 28 YES votes
    were required to ratify that proposed constitutional amendment.
    If you don’t believe ANYTHING written above, then please do yourself

    True. U.S. government is full fascist, i.e., strong, autocratic central control of a private economy.

    Today, the U.S. government has the FDA and DEA riding roughshod over drugs. 100 years ago, the government knew it needed an amendment to give them authority over alcohol. They have no such authority over drugs.

    Indeed, there are 600 federal agencies telling Americans how to live, while there is no authorization for them in the Constitution.

    The problem is, the people want fascism. They want people controlling people; they want people controlling you. They want gluten labels on their cheese.

    Consider gun control. Not only do the feds not have an amendment authorizing their gun laws, they have an amendment that specifically prohibits it! Most of the NFA regs should be summarily dismissed.

And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I, as much as any other man, am in favour of having the superior position assigned to the white race.” —

    “You got rights, huh?” says the Man to John Q. “Allow me to instigate a process to see if that’s true….[several months pass] Ah, it says here you do in fact have some rights. Okay, then. Time for a different process.”

    There we have it. That’s most of the story. The rest is people following a path cut through the legal woods, one day to pave over it and ride the highway.

    One of a person’s rights, to which they are due, is according to the 14th Amendment Equal Protection. Which doesn’t actually mean anything, because the Law treats people unequally literally all the time. And I’m not using literally figuratively. You can say people are treated equally but still somehow under equality of protection. But I have no idea what that could possibly meam. Unless it means some laws are unequal in a non-protective sense. Which means, uh…

    Uh, let’s pretend it is meaningful. There. You have your right, stately and federally.

    Wait, why federally, you ask? Hey, buddy, who’s the law-talking guy here? The 5th Amendment is federal, and we’ve already established a superhighway from the 5th to the 14th. So there you have it.

    In actual fact, the 9th amendment is infinitely preferable to the 5th for this purpose. But Official America likes to pretend the 9th doesn’t exist. Poor Bork said it’s no different than an inkblot, legally. Because he was not full of the Spirit of ’89. Or ’76 for that matter.

    That was my point. As Rahm Emanuel said, never let a crisis go to waste. Any opportunity to “temporarily” increase the power of the Democrats/Permanent Government must be ruthlessly exploited and once the immediate crisis is over , you need to forget to loosen the screws. It’s a one way ratchet – see for example airport “security theater” which is never going away.

    Likewise, the conditions under which masks will no longer be required ANYWHERE are never going to be achieved. We are going to be “that close” to hitting the target but somehow we are never getting across the line. There’s going to be a new strain or something and you’ll have to keep wearing masks on public transportation, etc. The temporary “guarantied income” measures in the Covid relief bill will become permanent. Etc. This is all stuff the Democrats want to do anyway and Covid gave them the excuse to do them. Close all businesses? No problem, who needs businesses anyway? They contribute to climate change. If anyone needs money, we’ll just print it up. What could go wrong?

    The prevailing idea (or anti-idea) is that there’s such a thing as “substantive” due process. Substance being what you arrive at through a process, I guess.

    There isn’t any reason to go through these extra steps, however, as the 9th amendment covers it directly. That’s the one that says you have rights they didn’t get around to mentioning in the Bill of Rights. Or common sense, if you don’t want to bother with the 9th.

    Okay, now if judges say Equal Protection is a Ninth amendment right, then it’s a right at all the way up and down. Federal and state. So you got the whole thing covered right there.

    Why then do judges and academics insist on going through the right to due process in order to get at other rights? No good reason, and two bad ones:

    1. They don’t like the 9th amendment, and

    2. Extra steps are what the perverted minds of lawyers prefer.
    Any idiot can understand that U.S. citizens have a God-given right to this or that. Few can understand how a PROCESS can magically become SUBSTANTIAL. Only those initiated into the Dark Arts taught at Harvard/Yale/Hogwarts understand.

    “what about our revenue?”

    The United States was financed by tariffs, generally paid by Southerners. The North and West controlled Congress, hence controlled the spending of Southern money.

    Lincoln supported the Morrill Tariff, which would raise the tariff 3X. Lincoln/Republicans goal was to EXPAND GOVERNMENT! Imagine that.

    PJLondon is correct: Secession meant the loss of financing for the United States.

    Perfect and succinct statement of the grift. At what point does the structure become so top heavy it topples over? Stay tuned.
