We all know that racial discrimination is a complex social phenomenon that is bigger than individual “bad actors” using racial epithets or companies that intentionally refuse to hire and/or promote qualified members of protected groups to meaningful positions throughout their workplace.
One must always keep in mind that before, during and after the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, many racist white people, especially politicians and judges, opposed the enactment of this law and vowed to do everything in their power to undermine the law’s substantive strength.
This is one of the reasons why the Civil Rights Act of 1964 had to be amended in 1991 to reestablish disparate impact theory, a theory that accounts for UNINTENTIONAL DISCRIMINATION! 26 years later, disparate impact theory is again being ignored and these predominately white judges are doing everything in their corrupt power to ensure that the law is practically meaningless in its ability to eradicate workplace discrimination at the organizational and institutional levels — where it all starts.
This was always part of their racist plan, and it’s clearly working, which is one of the reasons why the unemployment rate for African Americans has historically remained double that of whites.
