    It is allowed by race. Affirmative action is one example. The other is that following ESG guidelines corporations now must favor minorities for all promotions.

    How can ESG guidelines take precedence over federal law stating:

    It shall be an unlawful employment practice for an employer -

    (1) to fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any individual, or otherwise to discriminate against any individual with respect to his compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, because of such individual's race, color, religion, sex, or national origin; or

    ?

    I think it is because if no one enforces that law in these cases, what stops it?

    It's because the same act grants courts broad authority to order affirmative action to remedy past discrimination. Courts and the EEOC have used to this as an excuse to permit voluntary affirmative action plans, even though they obviously discriminate on the basis of race and even when they aren't remedying intentional discrimination. Furthermore, the Supreme Court has ruled that "diversity" is a compelling enough reason to set aside the strict enforcement of the of 14th Amendment's equal protection clause (applies to government employment, education, etc.).

    Of course, the days of this tyrannical crap may be numbered. It survived because the Court was still pretty liberal in the '70s (basically didn't care what the law said) and because Justices O'Connor and Kennedy were willing to tolerate it to a point, though both suggested that the time will come when it's not permissible. (I think that's a ******** way to apply law and a clear abuse of judicial power, but it's better than not caring at all.) Kennedy and Ginsburg (who obviously loved affirmative action) were replaced by Kavanaugh and Barrett, who seem much less sympathetic to it. O'Connor was effectively (though not literally) replaced by John Roberts. For all his faults, his history suggests he's not a fan of affirmative action, and at least on race, he has shown a willingness to piss off the Left. (See the Voting Rights Act cases.). My guess is that this **** is going the way of Roe v. Wade.

    Because the government isn't going to enforce anything that protects the rights of whites or asians when minority issues are involved.

    The companies know the government will do nothing to them on this issue. They also know that the Larry Fink will take away the cookie jar if they don't.

    I don't advocate it, but if they met with an unfortunate accident, I wouldn't be sad.

    Allow me to translate into 21st century English. Judge Feming is a racist POS who clearly hates blacks!

    The civil rights movement truly is a tragic failure. The goal was obviously noble, but it became so intertwined with the political left that any chance of it being a real success was ruined. Rather than foster true black empowerment and success that can only come through personal success and merit, we decided to push for forced, artificial outcomes that made white liberals look good in front of other white liberals. That has been a trainwreck that has helped nobody (except white liberals), because it created destructive incentives and ruined institutions. Judge Fleming could clearly see that coming in the academic setting.

    What we should have done is end segregation and outlawed race discrimination, encouraged blacks to do their best in the system, and then been patient as attitudes changed and they grew accustomed to success. We'd almost surely have better outcomes now.

    The answer seems to be Charter schools such as Success Academy, Kip, and Yes schools.

    The Teachers unions advocating against public money for private school vouchers is a huge part of the problem. In the end it’s the family that values education and hard work that determines a child’s success. The government can throw money at the problem until we are totally insolvent and nothing will change, if the our families don’t value education.

    You can get a good education for very little money reading books from the library and watching Youtube videos. Or you can spend a little money on a home school curriculum. Public schools are not needed and detrimental to society at this point.

    How long until the charter schools have diversity class?

    They're great, but they're too easy for the government to screw with. We need a full voucher program now. You're a public school skeptic, but they are even worse than you think.

    It's amazing that the Georgia voter bill was called Jim Crow 2.0, and these guys are engaging in overt, blatant race discrimination. It's unreal.

    No kidding, and their reasoning: "Those laws make it hard for blacks to vote, but this agreement is needed so kids see teachers that look like them." Why do you need teacher that look like you? Don't you need good teachers ever more than that?
