In case you are wondering, all three surviving candidates' websites have an "Issues" page, but only Obama's has a "Civil Rights" subpage.
Here are excerpts (in italics) from these two civil rights documents on the official Obama website:
“Barack Obama's Record
“Record of Advocacy: Obama has worked to promote civil rights and fairness in the criminal justice system throughout his career. As a community organizer, Obama helped 150,000 African Americans register to vote.”
Notice that the document doesn't say "150,000 American citizens." It says, "150,000 African Americans." That's not a typo or an oversight. Obama got into the voter registration business not out of some general commitment to democracy but to boost the political muscle of blacks....As I wrote in VDARE in 2003, the unfortunate reality is that racial quotas are the inevitable by-products of our anti-discrimination laws. These laws place the burden of proof on the employer to justify any deviation from equal outcomes in hiring and promotions. Lawsuits can be won. But the cost can be so crushing that most firms will do just about anything to stay out of court. So they use quotas.
....On the other hand, would Obama have invested so much effort in this worthy reform if it didn't primarily benefit blacks?
At first glance, prison rape might seem like a violation of civil rights. Yet you're forgetting that the words "civil rights" are used solely in a "Who? Whom?" sense these days. If whites are violating the rights of blacks, that is a civil rights issue. If blacks are violating (literally) whites, as typically happens in cases of prison rape, well, that's not a civil rights issue. That's just something the cool cops on TV shows make jokes about when arresting the Great White Defendant.
The biggest problem black voters face, as shown by Florida in 2000, is that they tend to botch up their ballots more often than other groups—because they have weaker average ability to follow directions. If Florida blacks had managed to fill out their ballots in a usable fashion at the same rate as Florida whites, Al Gore would have become President. But black incompetence is not a civil rights issue, it's a human capital issue. Incompetence also affects lots of people, like all the elderly Jews in Florida who accidentally voted for Pat Buchanan.
This could be turned into a nonracial good government issue by a call for the use of voting machines with error checking technology. But Obama would never admit that black voters, on average, have a harder time following simple instructions. It's so much easier to call it a civil rights issue.
“Obama will reverse the politicization that has occurred in the Bush Administration's Department of Justice. He will put an end to the ideological litmus tests used to fill positions within the Civil Rights Division.”
Bottom line: More quotas, ahoy!
"Moreover, the House Judiciary Committee, under Congressman John Conyers's lead, has been investigating allegations that the Criminal Section has failed to hire a single African American attorney since 2003 to replace those who have left – leaving this important Section with only 2 African American lawyers out of fifty."
More jobs for the boys!
“Combat Employment Discrimination
“Obama will work to overturn the Supreme Court's recent ruling that curtails racial minorities' and women's ability to challenge pay discrimination. Obama will also pass the Fair Pay Act to ensure that women receive equal pay for equal work.”
Even more quotas, ahoy!
“Expand Hate Crimes Statutes
“Obama will strengthen federal hate crimes legislation and reinvigorate enforcement at the Department of Justice's Criminal Section.”In short: The totality of Obama's career since age 23 adds up to a man who has been in the business of taking from whites and giving to blacks.
Obama is black and thus will do everything in his power to disposes Whites of their inheritance; gifting it to his own people (despite their inability to sustain and manage profit or fortune).
But this is natural.
Blacks seek to prosper their own, just as Asians, Arabs, Jews and Hispanics seek what is best for their own.
Whites, however, have had their altruistic and individualist tendencies set against them and have seen the desire for White posterity become a slander and a slang for moral decay.
This was not always so.
The coming disaster has been brought about by Whites who have been conditioned into despising and doubting their own nature, all the while projecting universal (as in, ironically, their own White characteristics) notions of temper, individualism and morality, onto the other races.
And let there be no mistake, catastrophe lies ahead for Western Civilization as the delusional high priests of the 'doctrine of equality' increase their demands and seek after greater and ever expanding "offerings", all in an effort to manifest their own conjured, ever elusive, nightmarish-gods.
You see, race is not a social construct, but rather, society is a racial construct. And the race of the inhabitants of any given town, city, region or nation will determine the conditions, healthy or ill, found in that place.
Whites have to (and eventually will) get past the idea that we can make the world over in our own likeness.
We can no more makeover the other races in our image than an eagle can teach a garden slug how to soar through the heavens....
