Donald Trump will be using money that was supposed to be used by the Justice Department’s civil rights division to fund an investigation against colleges and universities who ‘discriminate’ against white people.
A recent New York Times report reveals that 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.”
The Times received a document from the civil rights division. The document states that the Trump administration is searching for lawyers to investigate “race-based discrimination in college and university admissions.”
Trump is doing this to satisfy his base, his supporters who chose him because of the racism that sparked from each of his speeches.
Kristen Clarke, the president of the liberal Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, frowned upon Trump’s plan to use the Justice Department’s civil rights division’s funds for the investigation.
She noted that the civil rights division was “created and launched to deal with the unique problem of discrimination faced by our nation’s most oppressed minority groups.”
“This is deeply disturbing,” she said. “It would be a dog whistle that could invite a lot of chaos and unnecessarily create hysteria among colleges and universities who may fear that the government may come down on them for their efforts to maintain diversity on their campuses.”
