AmRen Continues To Do My Job For Me

I’ve been really busy lately…and really lazy…and haven’t found much time to post things.  Fortunately, American Renaissance has kept its eyes on the prize.  Here’s what they’ve brought to light:

1) Apparently Congress hasn’t yet funded the $1.25 billion reparatations…excuse me, “discrimination”…settlement for America’s millions of black farmers.  I wrote about this hereHere’s AmRen:

Lawmakers from both chambers on Wednesday pressed the administration to help find funds to resolve black farmers’ longstanding discrimination claims against the Agriculture Department (USDA).

March 31 is the deadline the Obama administration and Congress set to fund a new $1.25 billion settlement, according to its agreed-upon terms. But a week away from the deadline, Capitol Hill has not moved on funding for the settlement.

Reps. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) and Robert “Bobby” Scott (D-Va.) and Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) made a public plea Wednesday to find the money to resolve the discrimination claims.

Lawmakers said the administration needs to step in so Congress can move forward on the appropriations request. Conyers and others said the administration has to designate the settlement funding as an emergency so Capitol Hill can waive pay-go rules and attach it to legislation.”

I don’t know if they’ve found the money yet.  I’m pretty busy right now, so I’ll look into it when I get a chance.

2) The suit by whites, alleging racial discrimination, against DeKalb County Georgia’s black-run government continues.  So far, it’s cost the taxpayers $2.53 million to defend against the suit.  Funny, blacks allege discrimination, the U.S. Government lays down and hands over $1.25 billion.  Whites allege discrimination, the government fights it to the bitter end.  $2.53 million is probably more than the white plaintiffs were even asking for.  It would have probably just been cheaper for New Zimbabwe to have settled out of court.  But this is minority-occupied America…Whitey won’t get a dime no matter what!

3) AmRen quotes the Commercial Dispatch on a white woman being denied a School Board Appointment.

Starkville Mayor Parker Wiseman on Thursday vetoed the Board of Aldermen’s appointment of Susan Tomlinson to the Starkville School District board.

“It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to veto the appointment of Susan Tomlinson to the Starkville School Board,” Wiseman said in a statement. “{snip} Knowing her personally, knowing her credentials, and knowing her outstanding record of service to the schools, I have no doubt that Mrs. Tomlinson could serve the school district capably and well. However, having reviewed a deep field of uniquely qualified applicants and the current needs of the School Board, I do not feel that Mrs. Tomlinson is the best fit for the vacant position.”

Wiseman went on to say it is important for a policy-making body like the School Board to be “representative of the community” it serves.

The Starkville School District is 64 percent black, 32 percent white, 2 percent Asian, 1 percent Native American and 1 percent Hispanic. If Tomlinson, who is white, were to serve on the school board, the board would become 80 percent white and 20 percent black.

“The Starkville Board of Aldermen has the power to appoint four of the five members of the Starkville School Board,” Wiseman said. “As such, the Board of Aldermen bears the responsibility to ensure not only that appointees are qualified to serve, but also that the School Board is representative of the diverse community it serves. Diversity of representation should be considered as an important but not controlling factor in the process of appointing a school board member.”

4) From Politico, by way of AmRen:

“Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) has begun an unofficial “diversity survey” of Fortune 500 companies and has told the companies that if they do not participate in the survey, he will make their names public.”…

“Menendez, the only Hispanic in the Senate, wants to find out how many minorities, women and disabled people serve as top executives or members of the firms’ corporate boards, as well as the “demographic makeup of your suppliers.”…

“Menendez said the survey had nothing to do with being chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, where one of his main roles is raising money and courting wealthy donors. And he rejected any suggestion that a company that did not comply with the survey could be the object of a boycott.”…

Don’t worry Menendez, Corporate America will fold…Corporate America   always   folds when it comes to “diversity.”  Well, I guess you can’t call it “folding” when they eagerly take the lead.  Those crazy “free-marketers”…they live, breathe, eat, and sleep “efficiency!”
