On Tuesday, six days into Joe Biden’s administration, it became clear why
Susan Rice, hitherto a foreign-policy specialist, was named director of
the Domestic Policy Council. Rice — unconfirmable for a Cabinet post after
her unembarrassed Sunday-show lying about the Benghazi terrorist attack —
ventured into the White House press room to preview Biden’s “equity”
With one possible exception, the specific policies announced were less
important than the word “equity,” invoked 19 times by Rice and nine by
Biden. Ending federal private prison contracts and combating “xenophobia”
against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are small potatoes as
Not so, perhaps, with the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing
initiative, started under former President Barack Obama, repealed under
former President Donald Trump and now due for spirited revival. The idea
is for the feds to reverse local zoning laws and plant low-income housing
in suburbs deemed insufficiently diverse.
Actually, discrimination in housing has been reduced since the 1968
federal Fair Housing Act, to the point that in metropolitan areas from
Washington to Atlanta to Los Angeles, most blacks now live in suburbs, not
in the central cities.
But for Rice and Biden, “equity” requires not equality of opportunity but
equality of results. That’s one of the fundamental tenets of critical race
theory training banned by outgoing Trumpites and reinstated by Biden on
A lower-than-population percentage of blacks in any desirable category,
explains critical race theorist Ibram X. Kendi, must be the result of
“systemic racism” (a term Rice used twice and Biden six times Tuesday). If
you don’t agree, you’re guilty of “white fragility” and you must be a
As Andrew Sullivan trenchantly observes, “to achieve ‘equity’ you have to
first take away equality for individuals who were born in the wrong
identity group. Equity means treating individuals unequally so that groups
This is exactly contrary to the central thrust of the Civil Rights Act of
1964. It could easily be judged, in particular cases, to violate the 14th
Amendment. Individuals discriminated against might have standing to go to
And there will surely be many such individuals. Rice made clear that the
policies mentioned Tuesday are just a start. “Every agency,” she said,
with no suggestion of exceptions, “will place equity at the core of their
public engagement, their policy design and program delivery to ensure that
government resources are reaching Americans of color and all marginalized
communities — rural, urban, disabled, LGBTQ+, religious minorities and so
That’s a lot of preferred categories, but one suspects that, as in George
Orwell’s “Animal Farm,” some preferred groups will be more preferred than
others. What we’re being promised is racial quotas and preferences in
every conceivable program, in every possible corner of American life.
It may be objected that the United States is already well on its way to
such a state of affairs. Quotas and preferences are firmly, almost
fanatically, ensconced in higher education. Corporate America’s human
resources departments, Kendi’s most eager clients, revel in imposing
quotas and enforcing “equity” orthodoxy.
Even so, something still sticks in the craws of most Americans about
treating some people differently on account of race or ethnic identity.
“You don’t get to unite the country by dividing it along these deep and
inflammatory issues of identity,” Sullivan writes.
Proof of this came from the unlikely precincts of California last Nov. 3.
Democratic politicians under the influence of critical race theory asked
voters to vote yes on Proposition 16 to overturn Proposition 209 barring
state government, including universities, from discriminating on the basis
Some $20 million was spent to pass this Proposition 16, versus only $1
million to uphold Proposition 209. Yet Prop 16 — and the legalization of
racial quotas and preferences — was rejected by California voters 57
percent to 43 percent.
That’s an even wider margin than the 55 percent to 45 percent by which 209
won in 1996, even though California has become far more Democratic since
That suggests the Biden and corporate elite project to create a United
States of Racial Quotas and Preferences is in conflict with a strong
underlying current of American opinion that favors equal rights under law.

Thank you for cleaning up the disaster of the 2008-2017 Obama / Biden
fiasco, President Trump.
Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
