The idea of “reverse racism” is certainly a bit of sticky subject to traverse when in a room full of Americans – who are a naturally diverse and complex fabric of ethnicities, racial backgrounds, and cultural norms.
That is precisely why the concept of affirmative action can be difficult to continue to defend in 2018. At one point in our history, there was undoubtedly a need for such racism-reversing guidelines, but those times only existed because of our own straying from the path of the Constitution and the American dream.
Remember, All men are created equal. That doesn’t mean just men either – this was more of a “mankind” sort of use of the term, not a gender specific choice, so all of you leftists out there chomping at the bit to change the wording of our Founding Fathers can go ahead and let your blood pressure normalize and sit back down.
When we strayed from that Constitutional path of equality, it took one of the greatest republican Presidents of all time to bring us back from the brink…and he paid for that work with his life.

Now, some fourteen decades later, the scourge of racism still exists, but only for the sake of the democrats who prey on the political divide of our nation in order to maintain power. They need minorities to be in need, so that the left can assert itself as the one true teat from which these Americans can suckle.
But it’s not true. Not in the least. All men are created equal. That’s from the get-go of our nation! Once Lincoln made his moves, and we rightly used affirmative action to get the nation back together, it should have very well been time to adopt “race-blind” policies the country over. Not only would this have reiterated the importance of equality as opposed to equalization, but it would also educate our nation’s youth as to the immortality of separating and segregating people, for any reason.
Donald Trump’s administration recognizes this fallacy, and is striving to get us back in the good graces of our Founding Fathers and great men such as Abraham Lincoln.
The Trump administration will encourage the nation’s school superintendents and college presidents to adopt race-blind admissions standards, abandoning an Obama administration policy that called on universities to consider race as a factor in diversifying their campuses, Trump administration officials said.
Last November, Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked the Justice Department to re-evaluate past policies that he believed pushed the department to act beyond what the law, the Constitution and the Supreme Court had required, Devin M. O’Malley, a Justice Department spokesman said. As part of that process, the Justice Department rescinded seven policy guidances from the Education Department’s civil rights division on Tuesday.
“The executive branch cannot circumvent Congress or the courts by creating guidance that goes beyond the law and — in some instances — stays on the books for decades,” Mr. O’Malley said.
The Supreme Court has steadily narrowed the ways that schools can consider race when trying to diversify their student bodies. But it has not banned the practice.
So, the next time a liberal tries to tell you that they’re all for equality, feel free to remind them that they’re not.
