W.T.F?? Trump is taking on Discrimination- against whites.

Really? Really??

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is preparing to redirect resources of the Justice Department’s civil rights division toward investigating and suing universities over affirmative action admissions policies deemed to discriminate against white applicants, according to a document obtained by The New York Times.

The document, an internal announcement to the civil rights division, seeks current lawyers interested in working for a new project on “investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions.”

The announcement suggests that the project will be run out of the division’s front office, where the Trump administration’s political appointees work, rather than its Educational Opportunities Section, which is run by career civil servants and normally handles work involving schools and universities.

The document does not explicitly identify whom the Justice Department considers at risk of discrimination because of affirmative action admissions policies. But the phrasing it uses, “intentional race-based discrimination,” cuts to the heart of programs designed to bring more minorities to university campuses.

So let me get this straight: discrimination against African Americans, women, lgbtq, etc, etc, is just business as usual. But discrimination against whites (and I'm guessing specifically white males), well, that's considered a crisis worthy of investigations??

It's not enough that white guys are at the top of the food chain already? If we don't give them EVERYTHING, it's not fair to them?

Jeezus tap dancing Christ.

Is Title IX next?

I'd like to see him try it.
