It’s time to end one of the last vestiges of “state sponsored racial discrimination” in the United States.
It’s unnecessary. It’s unjust. It’s un-American.
- Racial and ethnic minorities now account for 43 percent of Americans under 20 years old. Among people of all ages, minorities make up at least 40 percent of the population in more than one in six of the nation’s 3,141 counties. (1)
- Almost five times as many counties are losing white children as gaining them. (1)
- Non-Hispanic Whites are only 64.86% of the U.S. Population and this number is plunging. (2)
- Afro-American Barack Obama is the President-Elect.
- Hawaii, New Mexico, Texas, and California are minority states.
- District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam U. S. Virgin Islands, North Mariana Islands, and American Samoa are minority jurisdictions.
- The Urban Institute, Washington, D. C. reported in May 2006 that since 1970 the number of U. S. immigrants exceeded 35 million, and their children numbered over 15 million. The overwhelming majority of these 50 million people fall into the “protected” class of citizens who enjoy a privileged status. These people came willingly to the United States and their good fortune should not include the assumption rights not enjoyed by all citizens.
The beginning of a solution to the inequity of current laws and practices was offered to Congress in 1995 by Senator Robert Dole and Representative Charles Canady in the form of an Equal Opportunity Act. The intent and language was on point then and is even more pertinent now. Here is an abbreviated version of the Bill that conveys its scope. (Click here for the complete text of the Act.)
