If there’s one thing we’ve learned in the last seven years, with Barack Obama EVERYTHING comes down to race. USA Today reported on their latest effort.
The White House is putting forward a proposal to add a new racial category for people from the Middle East and North Africa under what would be the biggest realignment of federal racial definitions and decades.
If approved the new designation could appear on census forms in 2020 and could have far-reaching implications for racial identity, antidiscrimination laws and health research.
The new designation, called MENA, is being created for the benefit of Muslim Arabs. It would also include Middle Eastern and North African Christians and other non-Muslims, and would exclude Muslims who are Middle Eastern and North African.
It’s important to make race very complicated. Heaven forbid that we should be able to figure out that half of all murders in violent crimes are created by the 6% of U.S. population known as “black males.” Or the virtually every terrorist attack is committed by a “Muslim terrorist.”
Just in case there was any question in your mind that this isn’t about “racism” here’s a quote from the University of Detroit law professor.
“My inclination is to think that individuals who might identify might not check the box for fear of retribution – especially if Trump wins.
In the grand scheme of things, it’s a really progressive stride forward. But in the broader landscape, it’s taking place in the context of greater animus against Arab-Americans, and really, Islamophobia.”
Among things this will do, administratively, would be to allow a Democratic administration to enforce the Voting Rights Act and draw congressional and state legislative boundaries to gerrymandered districts to exaggerate Muslim voting power.
Democrats have used the Voting Rights Act to gerrymandered districts where only black Democrats can be elected. And that has given us the Black Caucus, a collection of the dumbest and most obnoxious people in the nation.
The Constitution and the Nation are 400 years old…
Democrats are going to use this new “race” to create a “Muslim Caucus” with the same signal digit IQ as the Black Caucus. And they’ll be voting Democrat right down the line.
Of course, though also be looking to invoke Sharia in your neighborhood. But what the heck, there’s always a little pain with progress.
