Biden Fills Economic Posts With Experts on Systemic Racism
Bloomberg 1 day ago

The incoming president tapped Mehrsa Baradaran, whose book “The Color of Money” is a key reference on the racial wealth gap, to prepare the Treasury Department for the transition.

Professor Baradaran represents the Rodeo Drive-Americans of Color community.

She’s joined by Lisa Cook, an economist at Michigan State University, on the “landing team” for the Federal Reserve and banking and securities regulators. They are among more than 500 experts who will focus on race as they shape Biden’s policies on issues like housing, health and small-business lending. Baradaran declined to comment, and Cook referred questions to the Biden team.

Observers say they’ve never seen expertise about race figure so prominently in economic roles.

“It’s an incredible signal to the Black community,” said Anna Gifty Opoku-Agyeman, co-founder of the Sadie Collective, a nonprofit working to get more Black women in economics. “This administration is going to be focused on thinking about: ‘How do we build up Black wealth? How do we close this racial wealth gap?’”

Disparities in economic opportunity and achievement have been a prominent topic in the U.S. this year, since the summer’s widespread demonstrations against racism and police brutality. Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta President Raphael Bostic, the first Black Fed president in the central bank’s 106-year history, has said systemic racism is both an economic and a moral issue.

Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris are emphasizing diversity as they prepare to assume power next year. Women comprise more than 50% of the new administration’s landing teams, according to the transition team, and more than 40% of advisers are from groups that are historically underrepresented in the federal government, like racial minorities, people with disabilities and those who identify as LGBTQ. …

Among Biden’s other experts on the racial wealth gap are:

Don Graves, who leads the Treasury landing team. He’s a former Obama administration official and was head of corporate responsibility at KeyBank until he joined the campaign in September.
Bill Bynum, who will advise the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. He’s chief executive of the Hope Credit Union.
Tene Dolphin, who will serve on the Commerce Department’s landing team. She’s the first executive director for the Greater Washington Black Chamber of Commerce.

Such personnel decisions hint at the incoming administration’s emphasis on addressing disparities.

    The real white privilege? Open Borders. When whites are the majority, it’s diversity, open borders, minority rights, etc. When any other race is the majority, the precise opposite applies.

    “Racism”, or self preference and preservation, is the norm in Vietnam, Mexico, and literally every nonwhite population across the globe. What’s called “far right” here is normal everywhere else.

    There will never be “social justice” for the long enslaved and colonized Slavs and Greeks, nor will there ever be punitive “antiracism diversity” for Turks, Japanese, Mongolians, North Africa, etc.

    We are the Natives of the European civilization called America. It was built by us, in our image, for Ourselves and Our Posterity. If an antiwhite believes he’s on “stolen land”, his first moral obligation is to get off of it, “give back” his own “loot”, and demand we stop importing more “thieves”.

  2. It’s amazing how folks think slavery was abolished instead of redefined and expanded. The free-lunchers think it’s heaven-sent, produced by executive fiat. Congress says “Make it so, Number One!” and America goes warp speed into final bankruptcy. Next stop, cannibalism.

  3. Icy Blast says:

    I think it’s like so totally cool that Biden is going to fight racism and stuff. I mean like, he’s going to get rid of all the Trump-supporting neo-NAZI’s and the flat-earth inbred Bible-thumping white supremacists and put women of color in the Federal Reserve so we can like totally rid this country of income inequality. It’s like Ben Shapiro said, this country can finally live up to it’s promise…and stuff like that.

    The good thing about the government “building up black wealth” is that it is just as effective as trying to fill a leaky bucket. No matter how much money you divert to blacks, it all ends up in non-black pockets in a short amount of time. The only really effective way to increase black wealth is to give it to them in monthly checks and even then it’s gone before the end of the month.

    Thoughtful blacks know this too. In the Ice Cube comedy Barber Shop, the old barber played by Cedric the Entertainer notes that reparations would only make Cadillac the number one car sold in America. Both the radical and the button-down black barbers, younger men, agree reparations aren’t what blacks need.

    That was so pre-2012. As Steve predicted, Obama’s re-election pivoted to race, and with that came the Great Awokening. Now trans blacks and black women join South and East Asians and hipster whites to announce that DIE is the only way to solve the race problem. What it does is transfer a lot of federal funds to trans and female blacks, South and East Asians, et al.

    It’s telling that Trump won more of the black male vote than any Republican since the 1950s. Straight black men see maybe a little more clearly that the Marxian shell game isn’t really about helping blacks.

    Most Democrats pretend but I think he actually believes it.

    If you really wanted to increase Black wealth then you wouldn’t spend so much time on education. Most degrees just lead to debt. There are already plenty of minority scholarships for business and science. But more importantly that has already been tried.

    Racial realist leftists are more concerned with diluting and undermining Whites than patronizing Blacks. They don’t think equality is possible by uplifting Blacks. Racial realist leftists have correctly concluded that that the closest level of equality possible is through dragging down Whites. I’ve even seen them admit in forums that this means China will dominate. They are fine with that if it means subjugating Whites. I think White history bothers them as much as the present.

    Anyways Biden comes across as the “good White” fuzzy thinking liberal that thinks Black kids just need a pat on the head and maybe a lie about who invented the light bulb. Expect “pep talk” type programs from him.

    Georgia finds 2,600 uncounted ballots, Sec. of State says GOP strong-arming him

    Election officials in Georgia found some 2,600 uncounted ballots from a Republican-leaning section of the state — but the votes were not expected to be enough to flip the state from a Joe Biden win, a report said Monday.

    The uncounted ballots from Floyd County in the northwestern section of the state — a GOP stronghold — could narrow Biden’s 14,000-vote lead, but not by enough to change the outcome of the race, The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.

    The votes were left uncounted because election workers didn’t upload the votes from a memory card into a ballot-scanning machine, according to the report.

    Biden Needs Fed’s Powell on Board to Fix Racial Wealth Gap

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-08-09/biden-needs-fed-s-powell-on-board-to-fix-racial-wealth-gap

    Fed Chairman Jerome Powell is unconvinced that monetary policy can do anything about it.

    The Democratic presidential nominee wants the Fed to “aggressively” target inequality, even leaving open the possibility of asking Congress to create a third mandate for the central bank.

    Powell has downplayed the idea of a direct role for the Fed in tackling racial inequality, saying in July that its underlying causes “are not related to monetary policy” and that fiscal efforts “and just policy generally: education, health care, all those things” can be more effective remedies.

    In May, Powell said Fed policies “absolutely” don’t add to the nation’s economic inequality. Last month, he said that while wealth disparity is a “critical problem,” central bankers “don’t really have the best tools” to address it.

    I expect the furies will descend on Jerome Powell soon.

    It’s almost like a scene in a movie—a revolutionary rabble takes over the capital city and the lights flicker and go out.

    A hapless waterworks executive is dragged before the revolutionary commander, gets a gun pointed to his head, and is told to make the lights go on again.

    You see the same pattern in their homeland.

    Some of this money ended offshore. Likewise anti-White Zimbabwean thugocrat Robert Mugabe still did his shopping at Harrods, a very exclusive shop in London.

    The only really effective way to increase black wealth is to give it to them in monthly checks and even then it’s gone before the end of the month.

    The Mongols were into tribute more than anything. They would intimidate smaller nations and suck them almost dry occasionally having to make an example out of one of them. If whites want to fight back, they need to start with this: Stop giving your money to people who hate you.

    That’s because you are trapped in systemically racist, white notions of “expertise” – that expertise is gained by attending academic institutions (real ones, not mail order diploma mills) and studying and authoring papers and so on. BIPOCs gain expertise on systemic racism thru lived experience of being peoples of color (an experience that People of Palor can never have) and so of course 100% of systemic racism “experts” must of necessity be BIPOC.

    Our taste makers have installed a narrative of Blacks being an underutilized economic force that will flourish and produce if we just have one more aid program; one more round of reducing racism; etc. I’d think most everyone would eventually drop the cup and back away from the kool-aid vat, but I guess failed prophecy ramps up the fervor of believers.

    The True Believers are actually making things worse for Blacks because they are stuck in a loop by refusing to consider if that “one more aid program” will actually work.

    Isolated and soft-science educated Whites keep proposing the same types of packages that are centered around education and prison reform.

    Blacks would be better off with infrastructure spending but fuzzy headed liberals refuse to budge from this idea that higher education can turn everyone into good little Gueveras. Most White liberals really believe that bad Whites suppressed the great Blacks of our time by locking them out of education. Biden seems to think this so expect a few hundred billion to Black colleges.

    With Biden’s record player comment we can see how he thinks. In his mind it is a combination of poor Black parenting (which is unspeakable) and conspiring Whites. He can only focus on the latter so expect some giant spending bill if they get the Senate. I would expect 200 bil to Black colleges at minimum.

    Biden already said he owes Blacks for saving him in the primary. Though I supported Trump over Biden I wouldn’t be upset with Bernie. I knew we would be in trouble with Biden because at least with Bernie he would be more focused on practical matters like health care and not this 100 year battle against nature.

  95. @International Jew

    I have trouble with the very idea that there could be such a thing as an “expert on systemic racism”. What is expertise, after all, in a field where you can make things up as you go along?

    That’s most of the social sciences now along with all the grievance studies degrees. Also includes most of the humanities and anything remotely related to politics. So about half of academia.

    Biden will be expanding those departments with tens of thousands of new positions.

    I’d much rather he just build public hospitals in Black areas.

    But that is too boring and practical for someone like Biden. In his mind he is going to be the president that finally breaks the bazad joojoo spell of ol’ Whitey that has been cast on his pool pals from the Cornpop days.

    WTF is Chomsky talking about? He likely gets his opinion of rural Americans the same way he gets his opinion of negroes: at great distance. Most of those living in the more bucolic rural areas of our country don’t really think about blacks (excuse me, Blacks) at all unless their government imports some to be their neighbors. Even then, the predominant attitude is live and let live.

    Chomsky has had his brain removed and is now an NPC.

    Biden won both the popular and electoral vote, but over 70 million Americans voted for Trump (who has refused to concede and is falsely claiming the election was “stolen”). That concerns Chomsky. “Despite Biden’s win, Trump won a huge victory,” he says. “It’s amazing that someone who has just killed hundreds of thousands of Americans can even run for office.

    He’s talking about Wuhan Flu btw, not the war in the Middle East.

    What crud. Bury Chomsky, he’s done.

    Letting Terrorists take over a country

    Dude, the 3 cups of tea thing is a fail. You say “terrorists”, the Afghans say “those guys”. Short of population replacement – which ain’t gonna happen – at some point US troops leave ‘Stan, and the natives take over again.

    sandwiched between two corrupt countries with nukes is going to keep us on the edge of the seats for a long time.

    Two? Please name these corrupt countries with nukes. I’ll guess one is Pakistan, what is the other?

    Again, how many generations of men do you want to send there? How many other countries should the US invade and send flyover men to occupy, just so you’ll not be on the edge of your seat? How much of other people’s blood and money should we expend to alleviate your anxiety?

    And with the “Bidarris” administration we might get to see Representative Pascrell enjoy his 15 minutes of fame. This is not the Babylon Bee!!

    Pascrell Demands Investigation, Prosecution of Trump Government Crimes.
    Unprecedented litany of misdeeds must not be swept under the rug.
    Washington, DC, November 17, 2020

    U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) today called for the widespread investigation and prosecution of members of the outgoing Trump administration.

    “Donald Trump and members of his administration have committed innumerable crimes against the United States,” said Rep. Pascrell. “He has endangered our national security. He ripped families apart. He poisoned the Census. He has personally profited from his office. He has attacked our elections and sought to throttle democracy. He was rightly impeached by the House of Representatives. He has engaged in treachery, in treason. He has all but given up on governing and protecting our nation and if he had a shred of dignity he would resign today.

    “Therefore, in 2021 the entire Trump administration must be fully investigated by the Department of Justice and any other relevant offices. Donald Trump along with his worst enablers must be tried for their crimes against our nation and Constitution. Importantly, any further abuse of the sacred pardon power to shield criminals would itself be obstruction of justice, and any self-pardons would be illegal.

    “Failure to hold financial and political wrongdoing accountable in the past has invited greater malfeasance by bad actors. A repeat of those failures in 2021 further emboldens criminality by our national leaders and continues America down the path of lawlessness and authoritarianism. There must be accountability.”
