After dropping off my radar, and evidently out of the 'sphere for a time, Casey Lartigue is back. He was at Howard for the Presidential debates last week and is rolling at The Casey Lartigue Show.
"News flash, everyone: The Civil Rights Act passed more than 4 decades. It is time to get your own act together." Is there any other civil rights legislation that needs to be passed to help blacks advance? If anyone can show any Constitutional rights that have not been extended to blacks should let me know ASAP, I'd lead the fight to change that...
Ring The Alarm
And now the sound is dying, whoa hey. It's ever so for the Left who like Michael Fauntroy here, rings an alarm as follows:
A recent Supreme Court ruling which upheld the unreasonable and unrealistic application of time limits on those who believe they are the victim of pay discrimination is another in a growing list of occurrences which demonstrate, clearly and convincingly, that the clock is being rolled back on civil rights enforcement in America. It’s the Reagan era all over again.
How did black people ever survive the Reagan Era? Well, with rising incomes. But that's old news, and so the sound is dying.
Speaking of old news, he's apparently one of those who believes that white attorneys who work for the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ are less qualified than black attorneys for the Civil Rights Division. Listen to this unalloyed yelping:
It was recently revealed that the Justice Department has an abysmal record when it comes to hiring Black attorneys and conducting civil rights cases. Since 2003, the criminal section within the Civil Rights Division (CRD) has not hired a single African American attorney to replace those who have left and it’s not like the CRD was a hotbed for Black attorneys. In 2007, there are fifty attorneys in the Criminal Section, just two of whom are African American. By comparison, the section had two African American attorneys in 1978, despite the fact that it was half the size of the current organization.
Justice commissioned KPMG Consulting and Taylor Cox and to examine diversity among attorneys throughout the department. The report, which was initially kept from Congress and the public, was heavily redacted when it was released. It was ultimately revealed that women and minority attorneys in the department feel that their careers are hindered and they are passed up in favor of White men when it comes to getting the best assignments. This, combined with six senior CRD officials being forced from their jobs for what appears to be political reasons, has undermined the work of the Justice Department.
And here's a shocker:
According to the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, the Justice Department has only tried 35 Title VII employment discrimination cases since 2001, compared to 92 cases brought during the Clinton administration. The Housing and Civil Enforcement section's cases dropped from 53 in 2001 to 31 in 2006, with a 60% decline in the number of race-related cases.
Are you telling me that in eight years there were only 92 cases? Somebody with some legal chops help me out here. If your law firm had 50 attorneys and brought 92 cases in eight years, would you remain in business? Something is fishy around here. Is this why nobody pays attention to the EEOC? Do you mean to tell me that there are only 100 cases that made the cut under 'the first black president'? Is the Civil Rights business going out of business? This is very interesting indeed. Kinda reminds me of my Internet Racist Hunt.
