Previously on SBPDL: White Pill at the Right Time: Trump Expands Ban on Anti-White Critical Race Theory to Federal Contractors (As Well as Executive Branch Agencies)

In the end, it was always just about the assertion of equal protection under the law.

Freedom of Association would be the ultimate resurrection of liberty in the USA, but as long as the Federal Government just demands private companies and public institutions not enact hiring practices based on race, equal protection under the law is guaranteed.

And that means all diversity efforts to augment the number of non-whites employed within a given private company equates to discrimination against whites.

And that’s where we find ourselves at the end of 2020: it turns out diversity is just another word for being anti-white. [Trump administration targets diversity hiring by contractors, KSAT.com, October 9, 2020]:

American companies promising to hire more Black employees in leadership roles and teach their workforce about racism are getting a message from President Donald Trump’s administration: Watch your step if you want to keep doing business with the federal government.

Trump’s Labor Department is using a 55-year-old presidential order spurred by the Civil Rights Movement to scrutinize companies like Microsoft and Wells Fargo over their public commitments to diversity. Government letters sent last week warned both companies against using “discriminatory practices” to meet their goals.

Microsoft has brushed off the warnings, publicly disclosing the government inquiry and defending its plan to boost Black leadership.

But advocates for corporate diversity initiatives worry that more cautious executives will halt or scale back efforts to make their workplaces more inclusive out of fear that a wrong step could jeopardize lucrative public contracts. The agency has oversight over the hiring practices of thousands of federal contractors that employ roughly a quarter of all American workers.

“For tech companies that don’t care about these issues, the pronouncements are a dog whistle that they can carry on discriminating the way they already have,” said Laszlo Bock, an executive who ran Google’s human resources division for more than a decade and now leads software startup Humu.

Bock said those who do care, however, will see Trump’s actions as political “sound and fury” that will be hard to enforce.

“It’s not at all illegal to strive to have a workforce that reflects the makeup of your nation,” Bock said.

Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson’s 1965 order was designed to “adjust the imbalances of hiring that are a legacy of our racist past,” said employment attorney and public contracting expert Daniel Abrahams.

“Trump is turning it around into an instrument of white grievances,” he added.

The president has also ordered the Labor Department to set up a new hotline to investigate complaints about anti-racism training sessions that Trump has called “anti-American” and “blame-focused.” The order signed last month calls attention to discussions of deep-seated racism and privilege that could make white workers feel “discomfort” or guilt.

Trade groups representing the tech and pharmaceutical industries are protesting Trump’s new order, saying it would restrict free speech and interfere with private sector efforts to combat systemic racism.

Trump’s executive order is a twist on Johnson’s 1965 directive and amendments that followed that set rules banning discriminatory practices at companies that contract with the federal government. It requires contractors to take “affirmative action” to open the doors to hiring minorities and women.

But the Labor Department is raising questions about the specificity of commitments made by executives addressing racial injustice in response to the wave of Black Lives Matter protests that followed May’s police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

ORDER IT NOW

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said in June that the tech company would double the number of Black and African American managers, senior individual contributors and senior leaders by 2025. Wells Fargo CEO Charles Scharf made a similar commitment in June to doubling Black leadership over the next five years.

Abrahams said he doubts that the Labor Department has much of a case against companies that are trying to boost diversity, though “there’s some discrimination against white people that’s probably actionable,” and courts have danced around the question of what happens when employers set “inflexible” targets for racial quotas.

But he said it’s more likely the Trump administration is using the move as a political tactic ahead of the presidential election. Trump has criticized workplace training that he says is based on critical race theory, or the idea that racism is systemic in the U.S.

Dozens of companies have ramped up their efforts to bring more Black and other minority employees into their ranks since the protests over Floyd’s death shook the country and triggered a national reckoning over racism. Many have announced initiatives specifically targeting the African American community.

It’s too bad President Trump and his administration are finally getting around to doing positive actions at the end of his first term, because there is no obvious path to a second term.

But that’s not the point: it would only take a few simple acts to restore sanity to America. Nothing dramatic, nothing outlandish, just simple acts to restore the rule of law and equal protection of all people… even whites.

  1. I remember somewhere around the Y2K, suddenly out of nowhere, “white people can’t dance”. Back then, I remember a lot of racial stereotype jokes being shared on the fledging internet, and that being Canadian was about being able to make fun of everyone, the French, the English, the Americans. There was a joke that came up in the Excite search engine about a ship sinking on an island and there were these trios of two men and one woman, the Chinese one have started a sweatshop and are making more employees, the French are in a love triangle, the British are waiting for someone to introduce them to the lady, the American woman is ranting about how her body is hers and her relationship with her mother is finally improving while the American men have committed suicide…

    Gradually, we went from “white people can’t dance”, being expressed on TV and in highschool hall along with blacks are cool where blacks are, to colonialism is bad, which I already have mix feeling about as I was born in British Hong Kong, my grandfather CHOSE to become a British subject by coming over from Mainland, an I already knew that European Christians helped end foot binding and outlawed brides burning in India…

    Somehow we started with “white people can’t dance” and got to “cancel white people” (was that asian girl suggesting GENOCIDE?)…and colonialism is bad to white PEOPLE is bad for existing. …and we’ve gone from being able to make fun of everyone to walking on eggshells and not being able to joke about ANYTHING, unless the target of the joke is on white people, straight white males, and it no longer feel like a joke but an attack.

    I’m glad President Trump is turning the tide, I won’t breathe easier till he wins (I hope the election won’t get stolen), though I’m already wondering just WHO could replace Donald Trump in 2024? He’s a great man, neither a Democrat or a Republican really.

    Worst case scenario is a Biden victory, but if the votes come in and Donald Trump wins, I would expect a riot. I think the Antifia will terrorize no matter which side wins, but it would be worse if Trump wins, and there is nothing to do but to prepare for it. I admire the people who defended their private streets with guns, but if I was them I would just board up, hunker down, and wait for the horde to pass.

  2. I agree, it’s too little too late.

    It’s just a campaign trail gimmick that has no chance of getting enforced. It’s an election year attempt to remind his ‘base’ why they should like him.

    I may sound a little sour but while I’ve liked watching the MSM’s collective heads explode over the past four years, I can’t help but feel with a real advocate in our corner, we’d be much farther down our chosen road.

    Instead of draining the swamp, he promoted alligators to higher, closet positions. Instead of cleaning house, he fought with Obama & Hillary’s vanguard head on. All lip service.

    I fully recognize the difficulty of a ‘republican’ president working in hostile territory but he should have been Tweeting and voicing the roadblocks all along, applying public pressure on his enemies. And I say ‘republican’ in quotes because he’s a convenient republican. Palsy with the Clinton’s while in NY; making noise like a lifelong conservative while running.

    We’re in trouble here. That trouble isn’t going anywhere fast. It’s here to stay until we start taking shit back. We have no friends in this fight. No one will come to our rescue, only to our bail hearing.

    The BLM crowd is starting to move to the suburbs as feared. Make them wish they stayed in the hood. They’ll have no stomach for a fight. They only succeed when their numbers and their actions are so over-the-top that they feel invincible. However, if a percentage of them never finished their ‘riot’, how many do you think would show up for the next one?

    If a portion of them never made it out of the suburbs, how difficult would recruitment be?

    They’re winning now because we’re scared of them and the backlash should we decide to fight but as long as we don’t fight, the police-guided riots will continue and expand until they’re standing in YOUR front yard, looking to drag YOU out of your house.

    I’ve always told my kids (my own and in martial arts) that the time to make your plan isn’t at 3AM when you hear your front door shatter. That’s why they call it a plan! It’s made ahead of time and simply carried outwhen the time comes.

    Like Sean Connery’s character in ‘The Untouchables” said….”What are you prepared to do?”

    The hell it’s not. The only way a company can ensure that it’s workforce reflect the racial makeup of the nation is through race based hiring practices and rank discrimination against white employees which violate the 1964 civil rights act. Some companies are already lowering standards so blacks can meet them.

    Don’t mean to hijack the thread but a black man beat a 17yr old white girl nearly to death when he spurned her advances at a mall food court in Naples, FL.

    Yeah, Trump should have done something like this when he first took office and chastened them with litigation. His EO should be applicable to college/universities that accept research funds. I know of one Ivy League institution that is tripling down on efforts to hire black/hispanic faculty with the de facto result that asian/white post-docs need not apply and not apply for a few years. It will be devastating for science. We all know that this is being replicated throughout all the institutions. Look to admissions across the board to be even more discriminatory as well. There will be no peaceful solution to rectify this.

    I suppose we can’t fault Trump – I mean, who else could have stood up to the maelstrom of corporate invective and propaganda? But he let himself be browbeaten into driving away his true allies, replacing them with people who hate him and will undermine him at every turn, and pissing on his base. I mean, a “platinum plan” to give tens of billions specifically to blacks? (As if there are no poor whites, asians or hispanics in the country). Thank you president Jared Kushner.

    And even when he finally moves in the right direction – like closing down the border with Mexico – he refuses to talk about it!!!!! Astonishing.

    Yeah they’ve fallen. Embarrassing only because it didn’t happen 50, 60, 70 years sooner.

    Postwar optimism squashed this country like a bug. All this was being identified from the end of WWII on, but we kept saying, “Ah, we’ll get past this.”

    Truman integrated the military. It was a disaster. “We’ll muddle through.”

    Eisenhower sent the troops to Little Rock “But it’s a temporary thing.”

    And keep it going for over another half-century and here we are.

    There may be some truth in the saying that “white people can’t dance”. I’m white and I can’t dance. Let’s think about it.

    In every movie about blacks in the jungle there is a scene where the natives dance around the campfire, or dance around in a public gatherting. For example in the great fifties film “King Solomon’s Mine” the Tutsi hold a political rally in which the topic is the choosing of the new chief. The Tutsi dance around for two or three reels before they get to the matter at hand and the contestants fight to the death. Apparently in the recent “Black Panther” they still do pretty much the same.

    In a white oriented film like “Field of Dreams” they have a political dispute at a town hall meeting and each disputant rises and makes arguments. No dancing. No death match with spears.

    Maybe it’s a black thing.

    If Trump wins in 2020, it will be a last hurrah shot. The demographics of the US are such that children born of the 22 million or so illegal immigrants are legal citizens and are coming to voting age. You will never get a populist like Trump again, even if he wins in 2020.

    But, logic tells me the super-wealthy political class would not want a one-party state. This puts the politicians in the drivers seat, as opposed to the plutocracy. My logic tells me there will be a split into two parties between the leftist blacks and leftist Hispanics, with the Hispanics roughly representing the “conservative” side of politics, such as it will be.

    If Trump wins in 2020, it will give us 4 years to prepare. By prepare, I don’t mean digging bunkers and stockpiling weapons, which is a loser’s strategy. I mean to dig into the bureaucracies and parties just like the leftists have done, and to develop social support and political support networks. A small identity group working out of sight can have tremendous political influence if it is willing to stay out of the limelight, and not get too hung up on complete victories.

    Consider that in many locales, the police and local government are on the side of BLM. That means, if you shoot invaders the police will come for you, and if you take the fight to their houses, the investigative agencies of the state and federal governments, so inept when it comes to ANTIFA conspiracy, will pursue you with great effectiveness.

    The fight has got to be political and strategic. There is virtually nothing which has been as effective as the development of free-speech websites, such as BitChute, Gab, Parler and the others, generally based outside the US. If you aren’t supporting these, you aren’t really in the fight.

    Political organizations and bureaucracies have to be infiltrated, for purposes of intelligence and influence. I wouldn’t take “Rules for Radicals” as a bible, since it’s too alien to a nationalist viewpoint based on human rights. Possibly, the infiltration methods of cults and identity groups (e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bMUZodsq5h8) would serve the purpose.

    The one thing that President Trump could do to turn the tide once he secure his second and final presidency, is not only ban third world immigration, but to bring in ALL the white Boers from South Africa as political refugees – there’s grounds for it as white people are legally discriminated against.

    America, like many other country, are accepting Hong Kongers as political refugees from Chinese rule, there’s gotta to be a way to bundle accepting white refugees from official oppression in Africa, if America can accept Hong Kongers, NOT a traditionally oppressed minority group, being rather rich from a first world city actually, then they could also accept Boers.

    There are things Trump should do to increase white birth rates in the United States, that’s long term…in the short term, importing Boers means more voters in 5 years instead of 18.

    Justin Trudeau fixed the most recent election by mass import of Muslims to Toronto, a city that was starting to vote Conservative because East Asian immigrants wants lower taxes, so he brought in Syrians and Muslims claiming to be from Syria as soon as he barely won the last one…in Canada, one can vote after being in the country for as little as 3 or 4 years, it’s madness!

    The same people who say “black people can’t be racist” are the same ones who’ll tell you “white people can’t be refugees,” especially if they’re fleeing black violence. And that’s doubly true if they’re white South Africans or Rhodesians.

    I don’t agree at all, but I’m not the one making policy decisions.

    Eisenhower sent the troops to Little Rock “But it’s a temporary thing.”

    Articles about Little Rock Central High School only describe how evil, racist whites wanted to keep out the po’ black folks and not what has happened since then.

    I looked up the school’s demographics — 52.7% black, 32.3% white, 8.1% Asian. How much learning is going on there now, and how much violence is there? What sane white person would want his kid in such a place?

    It’s like articles about the “famous” march in Selma, AL, that prefer not to address what became of Selma when blacks took over.

    I am not far from there and see your point to a degree but this is all too common in other parts of the not so elitist country.

    Another possibility is the racial climate being as it is white males are afraid to even defend someone or even themselves as fear of prosecution looms.

    Jim, the only problem I see with this, is your average White has so much more to lose and thus most likely gives the consequences some thought. On the other hand, the typical criminally inclined jogger gives virtually NO thought to the consequences of their heinous actions and even more, don’t care. If the penalty were severe enough, it would probably have an impact – eventually.
